The US Open runner-up doesn’t think the dominance of Nadal, Djokovic and Federer in Grand Slams will end this year
The trio of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have been dominant for years in grand slam tournaments. The three have won the last 13 grand slam titles with Djokovic’s Australian Open triumph being their most recent victory.
There’s been speculations about when the younger generations will break the trio’s stronghold on the majors. Daniil Medvedev is one of the players tipped to break their dominance. Medvedev was asked if the Big Three can be stopped this year. But the 24-year-old is unsure their dominance can be broken in 2020.
“It is complicated to answer this question. I don’t like to predict the future, but of course it is possible.” The Russian No.1 told marca.com.
“Anyway, Nadal, Federer and Djokovic have many titles in a row and I would not be surprised if they took everything in 2020.”
Medvedev has played against Nadal, Djokovic and Federer. And the current world no 5 is impressed with the quality of their game.
“They are amazing and know what to do at all times. The quality of each ball they send you makes everything very complicated. When you go out to play against them you cannot expect an easy point.
“It is true that it is easier to beat three sets than if the match is the best of five.”
