What the big three have achieved won't be broken anytime soon you need an incredible amount of talent desire work ethic discipline and be injury free for all those years plus a good support team not to mention the mental toughness - once in a lifetime from the big 3 those records will probably stand until they put a grand slam in Africa

If Djokovic wasn’t so stubborn about vaccines he would have easily added to his grand slam haul. Pity.

They have raised the bar. Talent, hard work, hunger to excel, fitness, consistency, admiration of fans and support of loved ones have brought them thus far. Hats off to Federer, Nadal, and Novak for taking tennis to the next and a higher level. May their tribe increase.

I have zero doubt these records will be broken.

If a new young gun - say Alcaraz - can dominate on one surface for 10-15 years, as Nadal has for almost 2 decades, and pick up a few wins here and there on other surfaces, they will be right up there.

I doubt that we will see another "Big 3" win everything again, though.

Anyway - farewell GOAT Fed!
