The greatest of all time debate in men’s tennis often divide the fans all around the world with different opinions. The debate on who is the greatest between Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic is going on for many years and still remains a hot topic as the three Goliaths of the sport continue to dominate the field.
The ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson hailed Federer as the greatest of all time. The American legend labeled Federer as the greatest as he is amazed at how Federer could still manage to play at his best at this age.
“It’s fantastic that he plays at this level at this age!” said Tyson in one of his interviews. “He is the greatest of all time.”
Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic have completely dominated tennis in the past decade. The trio shared 56 of the last 67 Grand Slams among themselves. However, the Swiss maestro is leading the race with 20 Grand Slam titles — one more than the next best Nadal (19) and three more than Djokovic (17)
