(Sports news, tennis news) The dominance of the new generation of star players may make the influence of “BIG 3” weaker and weaker.
The video of Zverev’s “devil into the spirit” phase reminds me of Rafael Nadal:
In 2020, the influence of the “BIG 3” group (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic) is still great, but entering 2021 the pervasiveness of this trio is not so much. More precisely, only Novak Djokovic represents the group of 3 players who made an impact on the tennis world this year.
Medvedev has won the ATP Finals for the second time
But the Serbian tennis player alone cannot capture all the major titles of the year, because the talent of the neighboring stars is gradually confirmed. Djokovic won 3 Grand Slams (Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon) yearning to complete the Golden Slam (4 Grand Slam + 1 Olympic), but he was tripped by Alexander Zverev and Daniil Medvedev respectively.
After winning the Wimbledon 2021 championship, Djokovic was defeated by the owner of the 2021 Olympic gold medal Zverev in the semi-finals and lost to Medvedev in the last match at the US Open. Also at the ATP Finals that just ended in Turin (Italy), the event that is likened to the 5th Grand Slam of the year Nole was defeated by the champion owner Zverev in the semi-finals.
Last year Dominic Thiem, a player outside the “BIG 3” group, won the Grand Slam at the US Open 2020, this year it is Medvedev’s turn, the stars of the next class are more and more powerful, they are no longer afraid of the trio of superstars anymore. .
Talking about the determination to “take down” the group of 3 big players, the Russian tennis player has a lot of confidence. Speaking after losing to Zverev in the ATP Finals 2021, Medvedev said: “When Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe retired, everyone thought ‘tennis is over’, no one will be good enough anymore, but Pete Sampras , Andre Agassi appeared. And when Sampras, Agassi couldn’t play anymore, the audience thought so and “BIG 3” appeared.
“I believe the same thing will continue to happen. No one has won as many Grand Slams as Novak, Rafa and Roger, so they can all be said to be the best players.
Personally, I will do my best to make tennis attractive, reach more finals, win more titles”, Medvedev believes that after “BIG 3” he and his colleagues will create strength again. suction for tennis.
True to what Medvedev said, the new star player group including Medvedev, Zverev, Tsitsipas is gradually creating a great influence, through the ranking position (from 2nd to 4th place) of major titles won. These include 2 Grand Slams (Medvedev 1, Zverev 1), 1 Olympic gold medal (Zverev 1), 10 Masters (Zverev 5, Medvedev 4, Tsitsipas 1) and 4 ATP Finals (Zverev 2, Medvedev 1 and Tsitsipas 1).
The group of 3 new star players are all over 1m9 tall (Tsitsipas 1m93, Zvererv and Medvedev are 1m98) and many people think they only know how to serve, but these are all players with comprehensive technique. In addition to the serve with dizzying speed, they have excellent return, defense, attack…also great ability.
If the audience needs a high-class performance like the matches between “BIG 3”, you can watch a situation in the last ATP Finals 2021. In game 5, set 1, Zverev had a “god-out” phase, returned a good serve, hit a difficult backhand, before performing a beautiful running forehand.
(Tennis news) Zverev’s convincing victory over Medvedev helped him win the ATP Finals and end the “Golden” year 2021.
