A little while back a press agency survey had reported a forecast based on a survey on who could be among the top eights by the end of 2020 and surprisingly the Serbian, world’s No. 2 Novak Djokovic came out at the top of men’s single with 42.8 per cent probability for the 32-year-old 18 Grand Slams singles title holder to replace Rafa (Nadal) by end-2020.
More interestingly, despite a huge fan-base for the 38-year-old Swiss titan, Roger Federer, currently ranked as world’s No. 3, the press agency survey report revealed earlier on Friday, the 3rd of January 2020, had forecasted an unchanged stance for Federer at No.
3 with 19.1 per cent chances of being No. 1 by end-2020. Aside from that, Friday’s (January 3rd) press agency survey had predicted a downgrading for world’s current No. 1, the 33-year-old Spaniard, (Rafa) Nadal with 25 per cent possibilities of leading him the table by the end of this season.
Nonetheless, latest press agency survey came against the backdrop of an earlier comment from world’s No. 1, Nadal, who had signalled a growing possibility of joining a number of young souls with a flurry of flairs yet to be discovered such as Thiem, Tsitsipas and Medveddev in to the league of legends (‘Nadal-Djokovic-Federer,’ the trio) this year, however the beforementioned leaders in the making had 5.3 per cent, 4.6 per cent and 2.6 per cent possibilities respectively to wind down 2020 as the world’s No. 1.
