Tennis star Maria Sakkari questions the 'Big Three' dominance in women's tennis

Greece’s tennis star Maria Sakkari has stated that she does not believe in the talk of the ‘Big Three’ ahead of the French Open. The ‘Big Three’ is the term initiated with the dominance of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in men’s tennis. The term is being repeatedly used in the women’s tennis in the recent past with the success achieved by the likes of world number one Iga Swiatek, Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka and world number four Elena Rybakina.
Sakkari was recently quoted in a report where she stated that she does not pay too much attention to the talk surrounding the ‘Big Three’ as she believes anyone can beat anyone in women’s tennis. “Iga has been incredible the last couple of years, but everyone’s beatable and you can easily squeeze in there with one good week and then things can be a lot different for you,” she said.
“I just feel like for me, my main goal is to get into that top-three level and then everything for me is possible. Iga is the most stable player right now, but I just feel like everyone is playing good. And on a good day, everyone can beat anyone. So I don’t really pay attention to that ‘Big Three’ talk, because I don’t think it’s only three players at that level right now, it’s more than three.”
