“Roger Federer Is a Super-Smart Guy” – Vasek Pospisil Reveals the Effect of ‘Big 3’ on the ATP Player Council
The ATP player council is really important for the players. The 12 member council represents all the players and suggests decisions to the directors of ATP. And now the council has Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal as members and Novak Djokovic as the president.

 

 

Federer and Nadal rejoined the council last year. And now having the Big 3 in the council could be a different experience for other players. Those three are one of the most decorated and celebrated players in history and so their influence will be unmatched.

“Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic are incredible athletes” – Vasek Pospisil
Another member of the council Vasek Pospisil recently spoke about Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic’s presence in the council. Pospisil recalled their first council meeting where he was sitting and discussing with the trio. He called it an amazing experience.

“It is a pretty amazing experience. And I was actually sitting and it was me and to my left was Novak to my right Roger and then Nadal was right beside him.” Pospisil said in the ATP Tennis Radio podcast.

He indicated that the trio work very well together and are strong characters. And as they are one of the greatest athletes, Pospisil thinks it is cool and the dynamics are very interesting.

“These are three incredible athletes to be involved in the council, with them it’s pretty cool and I think the dynamic is interesting because you have three strong individuals, they have strong opinions as we all do in the council,” Pospisil said

Now, these three are huge figures so Pospisil acknowledged that it can be challenging. But as they are very open-minded they work very well as a team.

“When you have three guys coming in with the position that they come in, it can be challenging, they work very well together, they are very open-minded, Novak’s been incredible, I have spent most of the time with Novak since the day I joined. Roger when he came on he brought a different perspective and he is a super-smart guy and very open-minded so it’s been a very cool experience. “ Pospisil said

With the experience and stature the trio brings in, other players will be happy with them representing their interests in the council.

‘I expect him to pass Roger Federer’, says top journalist

Published

Novak Djokovic won the Australian Open for the ninth time in his career and took his eighteenth major last week. The Serbian champion has thus brought himself within two distances of the Slam record of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, who are currently at 20.

The Big Three have fueled the passion of the fans and constantly made the world of tennis grow thanks to their talent and their successes. It is therefore no coincidence that the debate on who is the best has become one of the biggest questions.

In a recent interview, renowned American sports journalist Steve Flink revealed that Djokovic would go beyond 20 Grand Slam titles. He also believes that Djoker will easily surpass Federer in near future.

 

Flink on the Big 3’s era
“I think Novak Djokovic’ll go beyond 20,” began Steve Flink.

 

 

“I expect him to pass Roger Federer, I really do. The question to me is how many more Roland Garros does Rafael Nadal win? Because that could be the settling factor. If Rafa wins this year and next year to get to 22, then that means Djokovic has to have four more just to tie.

 

 

If Rafa wins only one of the two or if a miracle happens and he doesn’t win either one, I don’t know. It makes me think that likelihood is that Djokovic and Nadal could end up in a tie or Rafa could end up potentially one ahead of Djokovic.

But, I expect them both to pass Federer,” concluded the American journalist. Roger Federer will return to the court after almost a year. In a situation like this, it’ll definitely be difficult for him to compete with players who are almost half of his age and win Grand Slam titles.

Novak Djokovic recently won his 18th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open 2021. It was the ninth Australian Open title for the Serbian legend, and many experts are even calling him the ‘King of the Melbourne Park’ now.

However, it is not just at the Grand Slams at which he is excelling; he has now achieved another unique feat as well. With his victory at the Australian Open 2021, World No.1 Novak Djokovic has won 82 ATP tournaments so far out of 258.

This is magnificent, as he has a whopping win percentage of 31.78%. He recently surpassed 11-time Grand Slam winner Bjorn Borg, who had a win percentage of 31.73% as he had won 66 tournaments out of 208. Only the Australian legend and 11-time Grand Slam champion Rod Laver has a better win percentage than Djoker from the Open Era players.

Laver won 71 tournaments out of his 211 appearances at ATP events. Thus, he is at the top of the list with a win percentage of 33.64%.

‘Looked at differently’: Coach’s racism claims about Novak Djokovic

Published

on

Novak Djokovic’s coach has let rip at the way World No.1 was treated throughout the last year following his Australian Open title.

Djokovic claimed his 18th Grand Slam title after his incredibly dominant Australian Open title charge last month.

community after he was outspoken on quarantine conditions regarding some players.

This has prompted coach Goran Ivanisevic to liken Djokovic’s treatment, following the ill-fated Adria Tour during the coronavirus pandemic, to the cult horror film a ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.

He even went as far as to claim an element of the treatment is racist because he comes from Serbia.

“Everything started with the Adria Tour; they were after him even before that, but in the last year it seemed to me as if I am watching that film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” he told Tennis Majors, while laughing.

“Why is he being treated that way? Probably because of his background, people from Balkans are always looked at differently; also, Novak is not afraid to speak his mind and to fight for causes he believes in.”

Novak Djokovic’s injury critics ‘sad’
At the US Open last year, Djokovic was defaulted after accidentally hitting a ball at a lines judge.

This prompted fierce backlash for the World No.1 after he was eliminated.

But coach Ivanisevic said people wanted to see Djokovic’s downfall at the US Open.

He also said Djokovic was the only one to step up for his current players in Australia.

“What happened at the US Open, it was as if everyone was glad because that kind of s**t happened to him. In Australia he stood up for his fellow players and again – let’s kick Djokovic because he is the only one to speak up, everyone else stays silent,” he said.

He also addressed the latest furore, surrounding Djokovic’s injury halfway through the Australian Open tournament.

Many accused Djokovic of playing up the injury, which occurred during the match against American Taylor Fritz in the Third Round.

But this was preposterous, according to his coach.

He said people accusing Djokovic of an injury was “the saddest thing” and claimed if other players were injured and overcame the problem they would be praised.
