Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will perhaps go down in history as the three strongest players of any era, certainly the most successful. The Big 3 have totaled the beauty of 57 Slams overall, relegating many excellent players to the role of outsiders in the last 15 years.
Suffice it to say that Dominic Thiem had to wait until the US Open 2020 to become the first player born in the 90s to win a Major. Moreover, the Austrian took advantage of the absence of Federer and Nadal in New York, without forgetting the sensational disqualification which occurred to Djokovic in the second round against Pablo Carreno-Busta.
The Swiss and the Spaniard are paired at 20 slams, while the Serbian chases them at 17 after winning the Australian Open earlier this year. Meanwhile, Andre Agassi and his wife Steffi Graf were invited to attend the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit 2020, where they chatted with Indian journalist Ayaz Memon.
The former world number 1 said he immediately understood that Roger Federer would become a champion (the two met for the first time in Basel in 1998). There is great anticipation for the 2021 Australian Open, which is expected to kick off on February 8 to allow players to arrive in Australia and carry out the two-week quarantine.
Agassi recalls his first match with Roger Federer
“What I would tell you is the day I played Roger Federer that was the day I realized that I was playing, you know, the greatest player of all time, at that moment, you know,” Andre Agassi said.
The four-time Australian Open champion then reminded everyone of Novak Djokovic's dominant record against Federer and Nadal. Agassi believes Djokovic’s extraordinary versatility makes him stand out in this highly competitive generation.
“You can make an argument for Novak too he has a winning record against both of them,” Agassi remarked. “Who has done some accomplishments that they haven't done, who in my opinion, can play on any surface and be the favorite to win, which is a remarkable thing to say during this generation”.
Giving 2020 a surprising conclusion, the 39-year-old greeted his fans with the new branding of his traditional logo. With ‘Go Roger’ wordplay embroidered on the back, the RF caps are launched in 8 different shades.
They will be available in the market from December 8 of this year. Considering this, Federer will sport the cap in the upcoming major tournament, the 2021 Australian Open. His much-awaited return to tennis after a year-long break has risen to a new height since the news came.
The only question that is left unanswered is whether the Swiss maestro will lift another Grand Slam title. It is only fair to say that there will be lots of RF caps in Melbourne Park waiting for the answer.
