MADRID, 17 (EUROPA PRESS)

For number one in the world, the best tennis player would be the one with the serve of Kyrgios or Isner, the rest of Murray, Del Potro’s forehand, Murray’s backhand, Federer’s volley, Rafa Nadal’s mental strength and the Thiem or Ferrer’s physical condition.

In addition, both spoke of the debate on how to choose the best tennis player of all time. “It would be a combination of ‘greats’, weeks at number one, Masters 1,000 … I think the ‘Grand Slam’ would have more weight, but it is difficult to say and I do not compare generations,” said the Belgrade man.

“I agree, but I think the three best players in history are playing in the same generation. No one competes on the ground like Rafa, Federer’s record at Wimbledon is the best and yours on hard court too. I feel that I’ve competed against the best ever on every surface, “said Murray.
