What will men’s tennis do without Nadal, Djokovic and Federer?

Men’s tennis is sitting pretty well now. It was nearly two decades ago.

It was a happy, continuous saga that produced fan gratification, attracted worldwide affection, countless high stakes matches, drama to the highest degree, and perhaps the greatest quality of tennis ever played in the history of a men’s game.

Welcome to the adventures of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer: the savings blessings of men’s tennis and the ultimate needle movers.

It’s no surprise to anyone who’s followed tennis for quite some time but these three current legends have carried their sport in a way no sportsman or athlete has since Tiger Woods in the late 1990s and Serena Williams in both the 2000s and 2000s. . .

They’ve had that level of a stifling grip on the sport. No statistics show that more than this.
