Tsitsipas: "I, Medvedev and Zverev can replace the Big 3"

Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal have together won 60 Grand Slam titles. The Big Three have become true tennis legends to the sound of records and over the years have given birth to numerous epic matches that have thrilled the whole world of sport.

Their dominance in Grand Slam tournaments has reached unimaginable heights. Suffice it to say that since 2004, only eight players outside Federer, Djokovic and Nadal have managed to reach the most coveted milestone. The Swiss and the Spanish ended their 2021 prematurely due to physical problems; while the Serbian has decided to participate in the Masters 1000 in Paris-Bercy, in the ATP Finals in Turin and in the Finals of the Davis Cup before awaiting the decision of the Australian government about the next edition of the Australian Open.

Stefanos Tsitsipas, who has defeated Federer, Djokovic and Nadal on more than one occasion, spoke about the future of tennis in an interview with Sport Bild. He said: "Among the Big 3 at the moment there is only one great player: Novak Djokovic.

He is still the best player in the world. Behind him are me and players like Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev. We can become the next Big 3. Physically we are the best players after Nole. Is Djokovic still competitive in the next few years? Nobody knows.

I have a lot of faith in him and I know he will still fight for the big titles. In tennis there are situations that are never expected. Federer is still playing at 40, I never expected it. But I am absolutely sure that he will be back again."

On the possibility of winning a Grand Slam tournament in 2022, the Greek finally stated: "The level in these tournaments is incredibly high. Any player in the top ten can win a Grand Slam. Tennis has evolved, it has become a slightly more physical sport.

Sometimes it is very extreme. Attention must be paid to every detail. Dominic Thiem is a good example. He spent a lot of physical and mental energy to win the US Open. I saw all the games he played in that tournament and it was incredible.

The key to success in these tournaments is to win the first few games without wasting too much energy. Djokovic has shown this throughout his career and Medvedev has shown it at the last US Open."

Shaquille O'Neal to his six heirs: "I'll leave you the money only if..."

The former NBA star sends a message to her six heirs. Shaquille O'Neal has made it clear to her six children that if they want her inheritance they will need to be able to show him they can handle it on their own. Over the course of the podcast Earn Your Leisure he said: "My children? They have to learn what commitment is and make their way into the world of work with their own legs.

They are a little angry with me, they don't understand me. I always repeat: we are not rich, I am rich. My children know that this is the only rule: that they study. I don't care if they play basketball. They have to get a degree or a high school diploma or if they want me to invest in one of theirs business, they will have to present it to me, they will have to sell it to me.

This is something that I have made clear, I will not give them any money just because they are my children. " Shaquille earned over $ 286 million in 19 NBA seasons, and currently has a net worth of over $ 400 million. Born and raised in a poor neighborhood in New Jersey, he made it all the way to the NBA thanks to his daily hard work.
