Roger Federer was the only career player to win a title in each category. It happened in 2010. The Swiss won a Grand Slam title that year, the Australian Open. The ATP Finals. A Master 1000, the Cincinnati Tournament. An ATP 500, the Basel Tournament.
And An ATP 250, the Stockholm tournament. Federer is number 5 in the world in the ATP men's tennis rankings. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic are ‘not normal human beings,’ according to Australian legend Pat Cash.
Cash praises Federer, Nadal and Djokovic
“They are monsters,” Pat Cash said of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic. “They are not normal people, human beings. No one can do what they are doing.
It takes a different mentality than normal people. Andy Murray has one too. To be the best you need some kind of obsession and they have it, beyond the fact that they are exceptional athletes. Meanwhile, Tim Henman reckons that Novak Djokovic will have more Majors than both Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer by the end of his career.
During a recent interview, Henman spoke in glowing terms about the Serb’s physical condition, claiming that that would be vital in helping him outlast Nadal and Federer in the race. “If I had to choose a player who will win the most Majors, it would still be Novak Djokovic,” Henman said.
“I look at his game, his physiognomy, he seems to be in good shape. He could overtake Federer and Nadal." The coronavirus pandemic and the strict guidelines of the health authorities made it difficult for the organizers to host the Australian Open in January.
As per the instructions, players will have to quarantine for two weeks from the date of arrival and will be allowed to do training each day during the period. “It’s taken a while, but the great news is it looks like we are going to hold the AO on 8 February.
Players will have to quarantine for two weeks from 15 January, but the Victorian Government has agreed to special conditions for AO participants — agreeing that they need to be able to prepare for a Grand Slam,” said Tiley, in email communication.
Keeping in mind the importance of preparation before the Grand Slam, the players will be free to move around and play matches after completion of the quarantine period. Originally the participants wanted to travel for the Australian Open by mid-December to have time to compete in the warm-up tournaments.
The state premier, Dan Andrews, wants the players to arrive in January, which would make it incredibly tough for them to take part in tournaments tuning up to the Grand Slam. The ATP Cup and the Adelaide International are likely to get canceled because of just a one week window prior to the Australian Open.
“Only the Australian Open is a tennis tournament in a city where it can likely be assumed that those players will bring the virus here,” Andrews told reporters in Melbourne.
