Novak Djokovic is a tough man to beat, nobody can deny that. The peak form that he displayed during 2011 and 2015-2016 is near impossible to match, even for the other two members of the Big Three.

Having played Djokovic twice, on hard and grass, Zeballos was unable to win even a solitary set. Perhaps he could have fared a little better had they ever faced-off on clay. The Argentine is a clay specialist and has something very few can boast of- a win over the King of clay!

That’s right, Zeballos has beaten Rafa on clay and more importantly, in a final. Back in 2013, Zeballos took home the ATP 250 title at the Chile Open.

“Without a doubt it is Djokovic. It is the most complete, the fastest and responds to the service with great ease. I think that against Roger it would be possible to give him more of a fight in some games. Nadal sometimes fluctuates in quality and intensity between surfaces, so I choose Novak. For me, I want Federer to play until he is 45 years old, he is unique. But technically I will stay with Djokovic. I think he will surpass Roger’s records, but I hope he deceives me ”

Clearly Zeballos loves Roger Federer a lot too, but there is little doubt who he believes to be the best tennis player.
