Shapovalov weighs in on GOAT debate: "It's impossible, all three of them are all very unique"
This is instead of playing in the Olympic Games where Novak Djokovic is the leading light aiming to head towards a Golden Slam but in terms of the GOAT debate, Shapovalov believes it is an impossible task.
“It is impossible to name a GOAT. It is truly a personal matter that concerns each individual," he said in a pre-tournament interview.
“So-and-so could just look at the stats, another could judge how much of a champion this player was, how he performed as a person or on the courts. All three of them (Djokovic, Nadal and Federer) are all very unique in their own way.
“It’s just a super fun generation to be a part of, and definitely, something like that will never happen again, in history I think. It’s just super fun to see what the three of them are doing.”
