Former French Open champion Yannick Noah says he does not like watching matches between the Big Three - Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal - as the tennis their matches are predictable and from the new generation he prefers to watch Australian Nick Kyrgios, since you never know what he is going to do on the court.
According to Ouest France, Noah says, "When there is a Grand Slam, I turn on the TV. I wilI mute the sound and watch three games. I think they all play so well. But Djokovic-Federer, Djokovic- Nadal , Federer-Nadal, I don't watch anymore.
It's always the same. I do not take a ticket to the cinema 50 times to see the same film/" Speaking about players from the new generation, Noah says, "Medvedev's game is ugly. Would you pay a ticket to go see Medvedev play? Are you sure there isn't something on Netflix, instead? It's ugly, but he plays monstrous tennis."
Noah admits that he likes to watch Nick Kyrgios play, who he thinks is the funniest guy on the tour. "You don't know what he's going to do, and he does technically fantastic things. He plays differently as compared to guys who only know how to hit balls left, right ...
They do it at 100,000 an hour, 10 cm from the line, ok, but I'm two games like that and it's good. Can you tell me why there are fewer young people in tennis? If I would be young now, I would like to be Kyrgios, it's obvious! At some point, you have to know how to listen to your time."
