The Italian, a bit out of modesty, a bit for tactic, rejects these predictions that see him favored at Wimbledon: "I don’t know. If Novak regains confidence in his body, it will be very difficult to beat.

Alcaraz won here last year. I also have my chances, just like them, of course, but let’s see. All these questions will be answered in the next two weeks," he said in an interview with The Times.

Speaking of his last match, which he lost in the semi-finals to Roland Garros, Jannik confessed: "I cried after losing to him at the Us Open. A little Roland Garros too. There are times when you feel emotions that you don’t want to express.

In the locker room, when you’re in the car for a transfer, or even in the hotel room when you’re alone. But that means you care, it means you want to add a certain level," he explained.

The last two decades have been marked with golden letters in the history of men’s tennis with the legacy built by Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, who rewrote each brand to raise tennis to new heights.

This undeniable influence of the mythical trio of players already bears fruit in tennis players who want to follow in their footsteps, one of them is the current number one in the world, Jannik Sinner, who shares his vision about what the Swiss, the Spanish and the Serbian have generated.

“What I can learn from them is how they improved as players by competing with each other. Rafa arrived at a certain point and Roger was struggling to find a way to beat him. Then came Novak... this is what allows tennis players to evolve and level up," Sinner said.
