Novak Djokovic lays down the importance of Federer, Nadal and Murray in his Career

Novak Djokovic lays down the importance of Federer, Nadal and Murray in his Career

The big four of the tennis, mainly known as – Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have dominated the game in a stunning way and now Djokovic has revealed how these three big names helped him in shaping his career.

These four names have almost dominated the entire tennis world for over a decade or so, Between them – Federer, Djokovic, Nadal and Murray stands 47 off the last 52 Grand Slams starting from the 2005 French Open to the 2018 Australian Open and an overall 286 Career titles, this stat is just phenomenal!

With Djokovic and Murray still finding their ways to get back on the circuit, the rivalry has been maintained between Federer and Nadal, who keep on fighting for numerous titles and for World no.1 position too.

Novak Djokovic sad

While Andy Murray has been out of the professional circuit due to injury, Djokovic has been participating, but failing miserably with form and confidence.

Despite all the rivalry and competition between these players, the four also shares a good friendship off the court, moreover the respect for each other is what makes them the true gentlemen.

Djokovic was recently asked about why he was never seen with any of his rival off court, during the time he was sitting out, to which he replied that it doesn’t make sense to be friends with someone when so much is at stake in a match.

“We should first define what’s friendship,” Djokovic told Russian outlet Novosti.

“I think that the most important thing is that the relationship is fair and respectful.

“We play big matches with much money at stake in the biggest events because of this I don’t see enough space for an honest friendship.

“I think it’s enough for us to have a correct relationship and respect each other.”

“I never had issues with Roger,” Djokovic added.

“I feel maximum respect for him because he had a great influence on all of us and tennis in general.

“With (Rafael) Nadal and (Andy) Murray we are of the same generation, we grew up together and they helped me to get where I was.

“Anyway, I don’t hate anyone, the word “hate” is not in my vocabulary.”

Recently, Former World no.1 Andre Agassi said Nick Kyrgios and Alexander Zverev have the capability to challenge these big names but it looks unlikely to happen.

Zverev just won the Bavarian International tournament by defeating his own country-men in the finals by 6-3, 6-3. But in Monter-Carlo masters, he was defeated by Japan’s K. Nishikori in the semis.

While Rafael Nadal continue his dominance on clay, he’s won a record 46 straight sets on the surface dating back to the last May. He has won Monte-Carlo masters, Barcelona Open and looks all set to win another major at French Open.

All-in-all it would be interesting to see if Big Four of the tennis– Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray will regain their supremacy together? Can we see another era of these four fighting for the titles against each other? Hoping to see the rivalry of the top four return very soon.
