Speaking to CNN Sport’s Amanda Davis on Instagram Live, Becker said: “Probably Roger Federer is enjoying his time because he doesn’t break any records.”
Together they have won 56 Grand Slam titles; Federer with 20 runs, Nadal with 19 and Djokovic with 17.
“Of the three guys, [Novak] Must be very upset. He hasn’t lost a match yet [in 2020], He won the ATP Cup for Serbia, he won the Australian Open, then he also won Dubai. “
Although Becker Djokovic never said publicly, “deep inside” he is disappointed that he is currently unable to play.
The German hopes that Nadal will soon join Federer in 20 titles.
“I expect Nadal to win the Frenchman this year, as he has done 12 times, so he is equal to Roger’s 20,” said Becker, adding that Wimbledon “is an opportunity that I think Roger can still win big” – on the grass. “
Despite the “great respect in the Big Three,” the demands of professional tennis and their Grand Slam competition challenge the idea of close friendships between the three.
Although Federer, Nadal and Djokovic admire and cherish each other, Becker admits that the relationship only extends to sharing the practice court and sitting together “if a seat is available” in the players’ lounge.
He continued: “They called each other in London, Paris, New York and said, ‘Hey buddy, do you want to go to dinner?’ I doubt it. ”
The six-time Grand Slam winner coached Djokovic between 2014 and 2017, describing that kind of relationship between tennis symbols as “understandable.”
“I think there is respect, there is appreciation, and I don’t think they speak badly [of each other] Among the people. “
