Australian Nick Kyrgios believes that Roger Federer is the best tennis player of all time because he had the greatest influence on that sport. Kyrgios never hid how much he admires Federer, and several times he publicly criticized his biggest rivals, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
Although all three have the same number of Grand Slams (20), the Australian tennis player points out that the Swiss is the best in history. Nick Kyrgios confirmed what most think. Although they can surpass Federer in terms of success, Nadal and Djokovic were not idols to as many children as Federer.
Of course, they both have a lot of fans, and kids who love them, but there’s something about Federer having an advantage over them. "In my opinion, Federer is Michael Jordan of tennis. Of the three of them, I believe that the children admire him the most.
He changed this sport the most, "said Kyrgios. With the arrival of Federer, there were many changes in the world of tennis, and it was he who announced the beginning of a new era "His retirement will do the most harm to tennis.
Without Federer, there would be no Djokovic or Nadal. Roger is the best player of all time, the most influential."
Nick then referred to another current topic - vaccination against the coronavirus. He mentioned Irving, who refuses to be vaccinated, and Novak Djokovic, who did not want to reveal whether he received the vaccine.
Kyrgios decided to side with his opponent, but also NBA stars who refused to be vaccinated. Just like most, Kyrgios believes that it is a matter of personal choice and that such things should not be imposed. "Irving, Djokovic.
Those guys gave a lot to sports, they sacrificed a lot. Millions of people admire them. I think it is wrong to force someone to get vaccinated." "I received a double dose, but you can't tell someone that he can't play because he hasn't been vaccinated.
There are different solutions, such as daily testing. " According to the latest information from the authorities from Melbourne, only vaccinated players will be able to participate in the Australian Open. In the end, Kyrgios also showed what we got used to from him; specific humor and positivity "Novak is the king of Serbia, we are talking about one of the best tennis players in history.
Hey, Novak, do you want to play doubles at the Australian Open together? I'm not kidding. I would never do that to myself, "Kyrgios said with a laugh
