Nick Kyrgios: 'When Roger Federer, Nadal and Djokovic retire...'

Roger Federer's path continues in the Wimbledon tournament with the Swiss tennis player who enters the third round of the London tournament without particular problems thanks to the victory over Richard Gasquet. Very nice match with the two expert athletes who showed off some pieces of their own repertoire, winning applause from the audience.

Thanks to this victory Roger Federer has qualified and against the British Cameron Norrie will have the chance to qualify for the second week of the tournament, his first priority goal for this phase of the tournament. At the press conference, the Swiss tennis player appeared quite radiantly happy for his condition and for a victory he arrived without wasting too much energy.

Despite this Federer is not currently considered among the favorites of the tournament, both himself and the insiders are curious to see him in front of more convincing opponents and Cameron Norrie himself represents an insidious test bed, a tennis player who plays solid tennis on all surfaces and that can annoy all workers.

The big Wimbledon favorite is undoubtedly Novak Djokovic. The number one in the world, winner both in Melbourne and in Paris has a great chance and by winning in Great Britain he has the chance to continue the Golden Slam dream, a feat that would be incredible and that would lead him to win four Grand Slams and Olympic Games.

Roger in the conference seemed to agree and spoke thus about the tournament favorites: "I obviously think that Novak Djokovic is the big favorite but there are many good players in the tournament. Berrettini comes from the victory at Queen's and already two years ago he made it clear that he was playing at good levels on this surface, we cannot forget Alexander Zverev who if he meshes with his serve can be really insidious on this surface.

Then there is Medvedev who is still number two in the world. In any case, I think that without a doubt Novak Djokovic is the big favorite of the tournament." Nick Kyrgios, who has had many epic battles with the Big 3 of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, has polarized opinion in the tennis community.

Kyrgios talks about the Big 3

"I love to see that people come to my matches assuming who I am and knowing that they will be able to witness a show," said Nick Kyrgios. "I have seen many people in the first row talking to me at every point; they seemed like my coaches.

It's crazy, they even asked me about Tottenham Hotspur. I get the feeling that people are eager to have fun and are excited to see tennis again. "When the Big 3 (Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic) retires, we are going to need people like that, who make tennis a spectacle and allow people who are willing to pay a ticket to see them live," said Kyrgios.

"It is very good to have people like Rublev and Medvedev, but also you need another style of tennis player. An example is Auger-Aliassime. I think they have everything to have a large following, but they have to develop their charisma. The ATP must assume the role of promoting young people with a special personality and way of playing."
