Garbine Muguruza talked about Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic and their dominance in the ATP Tour. Winner of one edition of Roland Garros and one of Wimbledon,Muguruza made the final at the last Australian Open in Melbourne.
In her career she won 7 WTA titles and in September 2017 she also reached the first position in the ranking. She said “I think what is happening in the women's Tour is normal”, said Garbine. That is the fact that there is a lot of competitiveness.
However, it is not normal that three of the best players in history live in the same era, as it did on the men's Tour. Usually, when a tennis player starts to lose, she goes down in the ranking and then goes back up when she wins again ”.
In fact, since the 2017 Australian Open, the WTA circuit has known more than ten different Grand Slam champions: all the opposite of the men's one, where since 2005 only eight players have triumphed. Muguruza also spoke of Serena Williams: “Serena's is a separate case.
She is exceptional, what she manages to do is very difficult ." Garbine also talked about Roger Federer's proposal to merge ATP and WTA, Garbine said: “I think a merger of the two organizations would be very interesting.
That would be tempting enough, although I don't know what it would require. I don't even know if there is a more appropriate time to do it. Perhaps, that's exactly what it is."
Rafael Nadal and the other who skip and play in New York
We thought that canceling the Mutua Madrid Open could change his mind.
Or that the presence on the preliminary Cincinnati ATP Masters 1000 Entry List could have said something, but not, Rafael Nadal, in the end, made the most obvious decision: he will not play the US Open 2020. The defending champion decided to renounce to the Us Open and dedicate himself to the clay court season (with the Internazionali BNL d'Italia and obviously with the Parisian Slam) without forcing the come back on hard-courts.
He will be a luxury absent in New York, along with the number two of the world Roger Federer, whose cause surgery on his right knee will presumably come back to Australian Open next year, and with Gael Monfils to close this particular circle.
The US Open entry list therefore includes Novak Djokovic, Dominic Thiem, Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev, Matteo Berrettini and David Goffin, like the mainly stars of the event at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
The first alternate is Andy Murray, champion of the tournament in two thousand and twelve, who obviously should have no problems entering. The Briton was also awarded a wild card by the organizers of the Western & Southern Open of Cincinnati, this year at Flushing Meadows. In the women's Entry List there are all the Top 10 except for the number one in the world Ashleigh Barty.
