In a press conference during the US Open, Andy Murray made some interesting observations about the longevity of Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Andy explained: “If you look at how Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic – they are about my age – move, you know they haven’t seen the slightest drop compared to what they did 5-6 years ago.

I fell back from this point of view. Then the Grand Slam champion analyzed his performance against Matteo Berrettini: “I did poorly for most of the match, and things only got better in the third set. He served very well and got many points thanks to that shot.

I think that was the big difference. In the fourth set I got a lead in the break, the match could have been there. Unfortunately, I hit a bad spin on my serve and the momentum came back on his side. Anyway, I played a good match against one of the best players in the world.

I can be satisfied with the level you expressed. I will try to do better in the future. “The Big Three have had the potential to stay at their highest level even beyond the age of thirty. Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic continue to compete for the most important titles and have shared the top three. Championships of the season.

Indeed, the Spaniard won the Australian Open and Roland Garros, despite the nagging foot pain that fueled the specter of retirement. For his part, the Serbian faced several problems related to his decision not to be vaccinated against the Corona virus.

The former world number one had to give up the Australian Open and the US Open for this reason, and he lost several positions in the ATP rankings.

Djokovic missed the Australian Open and the US Open

Journalist Ben Rothenberg painted a bleak picture regarding Novak Djokovic’s near-future prospects considering that the Serb had little training in matching.

“If that was the case, at this point, I would choose Alcaraz over Djokovic, I think, because I don’t think Djokovic has the match ready,” Rothenberg stated during a Match Point podcast on the Tennis Majors.

“I saw how slow he was to come back in this year’s mud season when he didn’t play at Indian Wells and Miami,” Rottenberg said. “It was a very slow start on clay so we will see. I think he will play some European Championships this fall.

I was imagining he was going to get some matches. But in this fictional scenario, where it’s like the next big tournament, I don’t think he has that time to regain confidence.”
