In an interview to SuperTennis TV Novak Djokovic's strategy analyst Craig O'Shannessy warned that the Big Three era has ended. The American said: "They are gonna take control of the game winning the major titles.
The time of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will go and the younger guys will come up." The Spaniard Emilio Sanchez Vicario added: "Federer was a fresh air for how to teach tennis because he approaches the net and this is what tennis teachers like.
That's what they want to teach the younger guys." Nick Bollettieri said: "Today the game is played on the forehand side for 70 percent of the times .you can no longer have a light second serve if you want to hage success.
We are also starting tonsee more players who get closer. Fo the baseline. That's what Federer, Nadal and others did over the last years. Taking the ball early and coming to the net." The coach Carl Maes said: "I am intrigued.
We used to have big.girls who did not really move well and now girls like Kiki Bertens moves well. I hope the girls will be inspired by how Ashleigh Barty plays. Barty stopped playing tennis for a while as she did not enjoy herself."
Rafael Nadal's uncle Toni concluded: "Tennis, like all the other sports, has one thing in common: everything is quicker. That's the main things. When things go quicker, you have less chances to change things, which turns everything difficult.
The essency of tennis changed, training became more physical and more powerful, while before you played being more patient and talented."
