Former Russian tennis player Dmitry Tursunov recently had an interview with Vedomostisport. The interview contained many questions related to tennis, his views on the current top ranking players and much more.

As the interview proceeded, Dmitry was asked questions related to the Big 3 of tennis namely Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. On being asked who among the Big 3 would win most Grand Slam titles according to him, Tursunov replied that Novak Djokovic would end up with most titles.

“I find it hard to assume that Novak won’t win another Grand Slam. He will break the record for the number of wins, that’s not a problem for him,” Said the Russian.

He further explained why he thinks Nadal and Federer would not achieve this. “Roger has very little chance of winning another Major, given his age, style of play and condition. Rafa’s game is too energy-intensive, he plays every game like it’s the last. Considering his age and health, this is a disadvantage,” Tursunov said.

Dmitry later said that the Big 3 complement each other, they grow because of each other. “The three complement each other. Djokovic has become such a strong player thanks to Federer and Nadal. He tried to find ways to overcome them, and he relied on physical preparation. He looks like a triathlete right now, he’s very meticulous,” Tursunov added.

World No.1 Novak Djokovic had an extremely successful 2021 season. The player celebrated many great wins which included three out of four Grand Slam titles. He came very close to winning one more at the US Open but lost the final to Daniil Medvedev in straight sets.

Enjoying a great year, the Serb is now ready to show his tennis skills in the tournaments that are waiting for him in 2022. He will once again fancy his chances at the Australian Open provided he competes.

Djokovic is on the officially entry list in Melbourne but his participation is yet to be confirmed. The condition to participate in the Aussie Open is that the player and staff should be completely vaccinated, but Novak has not yet revealed his vaccination status.

The government has made it clear that no vaccine exemption will be granted to anyone and Djokovic’s vaccination status is yet to be confirmed.
