The former World No. 1 Björn Borg recently revealed his hopes to see the big three make their comeback this year in the major titles. The 11-time grand slam champion spoke in length about the Big 3 and the current scenario around them.

He started with Novak Djokovic and said that it is best for tennis if he plays regularly. He said, “I don’t know what will happen, but for tennis, it is best for Novak to play. He is one of the top three, along with Nadal and Federer.”

The Swedish player accepted the fact that Djokovic has too much potential to lose. “He has to be a part of the biggest tournaments and play them. I think he still has a lot of tennis to offer us and win more big tournaments. I just hope he makes the right decision,” he said.

The Swede began by saying. “I watched most of the matches from Australia at home in Stockholm. The best news for Nadal is that he has regained his mobility from before.” He further said, “When I watched him last year at Roland Garros, he didn’t move like that, and that could be one of the reasons why he lost to Djokovic.”

Björn Borg claims that Nadal has broken a series of expectations just this year by winning the Australian Open. “What I don’t know is whether he was injured. I saw the real Rafa in Australia. Is it GOAT? What I can say is that he is the favorite to win Roland Garros,” Borg said.

It is without a doubt that Rafael Nadal is the crowd favorite to win the Roland Garros after having claimed the French Open titles 13 times in his career. This win could be a double record-breaking moment for the Spaniard.

Finally, Björn Borg makes a comment on the 8-time Wimbledon winner. “Roger will always be one of the favorites before the tournament, but the slams last for two weeks, it seems to me that it makes things harder for him,” concludes Borg.

The 11-time grand slam champion and team captain of the Lavers Cup Europe team, Borg wished to bring the big three into the same team this year. A comeback that would shake the world.
