Swiss Maestro Roger Federer has been holding the record for the most Grand Slams for a long time. However, now, his rivals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have come closer to beating this record which seemed unattainable at one point. In a recent interview, Franco Davin who has coached Juan Martin Del Potro talked about the rivalry between the ‘Big 3’.
Roger Federer Grand Slam Record
In a recent interview with La Nacionv (translated by Google), Franco Davin was asked many questions. One of those was whether Roger Federer is unhappy that his rivals are coming close to beating his record. Davin replied, “I do not know. I think it is already a little further. He passed that barrier of competing against Nadal or Djokovic. It seems to me that people put it in a place where everyone wants it. Nadal the same. I really like Nadal because he gives everything, he competes one hundred percent; It reminds me a little of what [Guillermo] Vilas was. And I like that. Today it is not easy to find that nobility to compete one hundred percent. And Federer and Nadal feel great, very great and are making their way at the same time.”
That Grand Slam record is definitely something that Roger Federer is thinking about. He wants to win the GOAT race and to do that he has to end up with the most Grand Slams in tennis.
Since his rivals have gotten incredibly close to beating his record, Roger has to add to his collection. Unfortunately, that might not be possible this year since he had to end his season due to a second knee surgery.
The Swiss maestro has said that he is taking this break so that he can return at his best for the 2021 season. Hopefully, we will see him win some Grand Slams at that time.
