Next Gen won't reach levels of Djokovic, Roger Federer and Nadal - Kohlschreiber

In an interview to Tennis Magazin, Philipp Kohlschreiber spoke about the Big Three still leading the rankings. The German said: "I do not want to blame anyone but I think with Djokovic, Federer and Nadal we have tennis players who are worse.

The younger guys can, if evolve, maybe go through the same steps. But for me, none of the new generations bring what Federer, Nadal and Djokovic have. For me, those three are the most complete and the best players, even at this age.

That's why, still late at their age, they win the Grand Slams." Will there be an enormous hole in tennis once the Big Three retire? "I always thought yes, but now I think someone can win a Major. If Sascha Zverev wins ten titles in a row, everyone will be like, Oh, ten Slams in a row have never been won.

And then there are amazing guys. I think Stefanos Tsitsipas is extremely good for the Tour. He is like a Greek God: short hair, monster athlete, he brings it all. That's why I do not think there will be a hole." On his goals for the rest of his career, Kohlschreiber concluded: "I would like to play for a few more years, keep pushing.

Now it's not that funny. I have to make sure people say, Kohlschreiber is an uncomfortable opponent." Caroline Garcia will be a part of a 100% women's jury in the elections of 2019 Miss France. Annabelle Varane will represent the Nord-Pas-de-Calais on 15th December in Lille, but she won't be the only celebrity involved.

Garcia, a WTA world No. 1, will be there, joined by Line Renaud, the president, as well as the singer Jenifer, the show woman Claudia Tagbo, the dancer Alice Renavand, the actress Maud Baecker and the 2011 winner Laury Thilleman.
