"Roger Federer and Nadal are less complete than Djokovic," said ...

During a long interview with Punto de Break, the well-known coach Gabriel Jaramillo praised Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, for their incredible longevity. He said: "Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are truly unique athletes, who have made the history of modern sport.

Although they have won a lot and are millionaires, they continue to give their all. They have taken tennis to a new dimension. It will be very difficult to relive such an era in the future." Gabriel believes that Nole has more chances than the other two to increase his showcase: "Besides being the youngest of the three, Djokovic is the one in the best shape from a physical point of view.

Rafa is always extraordinary, but his body will ask him for the bill someday. Then there is Roger, who makes everything seem so simple and has an innate class. However, I think Novak is the most complete of the three." The 34-year-old Serbian is back on the pitch this week in the Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo.

The Big 3's season

The Big 3 have been the great rulers of men's tennis over the past decade and a half. Even after they turned 30, they were able to remain competitive by breaking every possible and imaginable record.

Rafael Nadal has risen to 21 Slams, after having triumphed at the Australian Open 2022 against all odds. Fresh from a long stop due to injury, the Spanish champion has achieved one of the greatest achievements of his entire career.

The Majorcan will try to stretch further at Roland Garros, but he will have to pay attention to Novak Djokovic. The world number 1 was unable to defend the title at the Australian Open due to the well-known vaccination issue, which greatly limited his appearances on the pitch at the start of the season.

Suffice it to say that the Serbian has only played three official matches this year. The speech relating to Roger Federer is different, recovering from yet another operation on his right knee. The 40-year-old Swiss hopes to return in late summer or early autumn, perhaps for the Laver Cup.
