Legend of the Australian doubles (16 Grand Slams won) and now a consultant, Tood Woodbridge has analyzed in his own way the US Open which has just ended and the triumph of Daniil Medvedev against Novak Djokovic in the final. According to him, there is no doubt that the era of the domination of the Big 3 represented by Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic is well and truly over.
“Things are going to be very different from now on, the tide has turned in world tennis with this victory for Medvedev. I don’t think Djokovic is going to go through a total crisis that will prevent him from fighting for other titles, but it will be much more difficult for him. Likewise, I think if Rafa and Roger retire or start playing less, the Serbian will suffer a lot as he needs the motivation to face them head to head in order to be the winning player. the most Grand Slam titles. In my opinion, this tournament is a turning point in the history of tennis and marks the end of the era of the Big 3. This generation of young people see themselves as the ones who will dominate tennis for years to come. Maybe Novak can fight for one or two more trophies at this level, but what happened at this tournament is going to take its toll. “
