Stefanos Tsitsipas said that the Big 3 are no more. But who is Tsitsipas?

“I don’t know if it’s my moment, it has to be done with other tournaments. I understand when you talk about the Big Three Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, but the reality is that the Big Three is no more.

They are no longer the top three in the standings and that is why I say it, in fact Nadal and Djokovic are still competitive while Roger has been absent from the circuit for a long time”. For the second consecutive year, Stefanos Tsitsipas confirmed at the Masters 1000 tournament in Monte Carlo and He sent a great message to his rivals.

The Greek is comfortable on clay and is ready to start again this week at the Barcelona tournament, where he is probably the heavy favourite. It must be said that it takes courage to make such confessions, but they must be backed by results and a Masters 1000 victory is not enough.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic have won 61 Slams between them, not to mention the rest of the records impossible to beat by another mortal. Tsitsipas reached the final of Roland Garros 2021, where he showed his inferiority in the presence of Novak Djokovic: leading 2 sets to 0, the Greek melted like snow in the sun, losing the last three sets and showing the world another . times if necessary, the difference between the Big 3 and the rest of the circuit.

So, a hundred years from now, when it comes to tennis, the world of sport will remember the Big 3, celebrate them, continue to love them, while others, those who don’t know tennis in depth, might say: “But who is Stefanos Tsitsipas?

Only the Greek can reverse this fate, a goal that seems like an impossible mission.

Tsitsipas’ words after Monte Carlo

“I feel very good, it’s nice to go from Monte Carlo to Barcelona, ​​they are two great tournaments and I like the place where they are played.

I feel very good on clay, it’s a great tournament and there are many great athletes. It is true, Rafa Nadal will be absent during this tournament, but there are several athletes who I consider to be important opponents on clay.

Where do I see my career in ten years? I have come a long way, but my journey is not over yet. ‘I don’t think I want to hear about big hits, because I haven’t had any so far.

Carlos Alcaraz? He is one of the toughest players I have ever faced, I have never beaten him so far, but I want to get my first win against him.

He’s a good and nice guy, even if he doesn’t have much to do with tennis. I know he trains a lot and I think we can build a great rivalry for the future.

“Having said this at the moment of truth, the Greek bowed to Carlos Alcaraz who has the material and the talent according to many specialists to perhaps write a twig of history in front of the inheritance first of his compatriot Rafa Nadal, and then possibly rub against one of the records held by the Gladiators of modern tennis; Nadal, Djokovic and Federer.
