McEnroe: "Nadal can knock Federer and Djokovic off"

Eurosport commentator, former tennis player John McEnroe talked about the GOAT fight among Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, and expressed his hope, albeit a very difficult one. McEnroe said: "I would like Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal to finish their careers with the same Grand Slam number, no matter if 21 or 22 Grand Slam titles.

It was great to see Roger and Novak compliment Rafa right away on social media and they were great messages. After that match in the final and with that result I had goosebumps. Federer, Nadal and Djokovic are such good athletes that you want none of them to stay behind in the standings.

Honestly, however, I think it is very difficult for Roger to win another Grand Slam tournament, even if nothing is impossible. For Novak Djokovic it depends a lot on the vaccine issue and we have to see if he will be able to participate in Paris.

In any case, I think that Rafael Nadal has a great chance of reaching 22 Grand Slam titles at the Roland Garros. McEnroe: "Nadal can knock Federer and Djokovic off" As for Roger Federer, the situation is even more complicated than Djokovic's: the Swiss is over 40 years old, has returned from several operations and the tennis player recently spoke about his condition stating that he himself would be surprised to see himself on the pitch.

in the next edition of Wimbledon, scheduled for the distant summer. A quite worrying situation with all the fans still doubting about the future and the continuation of the career of the Swiss champion. The final result of the Australian Open gave Rafael Nadal the twenty-first Grand Slam title and at the same time rekindled the eternal fight for the GOAT, or for the best tennis player ever.

Thanks to this result, the great comeback victory in the final over Daniil Medvedev, Nadal has detached Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic and leads this ranking alone. According media and insiders, the Slam ranking is also defined as the one that will ultimately sanction who will be the best tennis player ever.
