When we talk about Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal we are most likely talking, and according to most insiders and fans, of the best three tennis players in history. These three phenomena of world tennis have been dueling and dominating the circuit for years now and year after year they achieve record after record.
We know that the biggest challenge that characterizes them concerns the fight to who will finish the career with the most Grand Slam titles, but this is not the only record that concerns the Big Three. Obviously there is Roger Federer's record: the Swiss tennis player is the tennis player who has been at the top of the ATP rankings for several weeks and only Novak Djokovic of active tennis players can, sooner or later, take this title away from him.
Karen Khachanov believes Rafael Nadal will end up with more Slams than both Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are tied at 20 Slams each right now, while Novak Djokovic has 17 Majors.
Khachanov believes Rafael Nadal will end up with more Slams
"I would say that Rafael Nadal.
It's my personal opinion. Although Novak Djokovic is younger, many are betting on him, but I think that Rafael Nadal. I saw that and laughed. It was not on purpose, unintentionally, but inside, maybe, there was a little hope (laughs)," Karen Khachanov said.
Khachanov, has often trained with Djokovic, was also asked if the Serb was more open as compared to Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer on tour. "I would not say. It's just that everyone is in their own closed bubble, if you can call it that.
Federer and Nadal also communicate with me and other tennis players, but perhaps they will not stand and talk with you for very long. So yes - Novak in this regard, is a little more open. I would not say that this form (Top 10) does not exist now - there are more psychological issues.
In some specific matches, with such and such a score, I could win, but did not win. Somewhere there was not enough confidence, but it comes with victories in matches. This is a cycle. Everything must converge into one, and then you make a leap and move forward.
Yes, I have an understanding of what to do and how to proceed," Khachanov said. In a video message posted on the Rafa Nadal Academy's social media accounts, Nadal informed his followers that the trophy he won on Sunday would be displayed at the museum there.
