Sampras positions himself and chooses the best between Nadal, Djokovic and Federer

Pete Sampras is an authorized voice within the world of tennis and we like his opinion more or less, it is always worthy of respect. Pete, winner of 14 Grand Slams, has recently been surpassed by Novak Djokovic as the player with the most seasons finishing at number 1 in the world and in an interview for the ATP, the former American tennis player has been wet about who is better, Nadal, Djokovic or Federer.

Nole’s record as number 1

“I was ‘The Man’ for that number of years and now he is ‘The Man’. Or even more. I think he has been more consistent, has won more tournaments and has more Grand Slam. We could go on talking about his career. No. I think we will see someone again finishing seven years as number one in the world “

Mental strength

“Unlike in team sports, here you are alone. Mentally, if you break down in a game, you don’t have anyone to help you. Your coach can’t tell you what to do. The players have to be complete. And I think that you need to have an attitude to be number one. You love it and it bothers you when you see someone else get there. And I think Novak has that. “

Change and evolution

“What Novak has done in the last 10 years … He could use all the adjectives, I don’t know what to say. He is willing to change and learn from himself. He always seeks to be better. I was impressed with his transformation. From being a young and talented athlete but very fragile mentally, to get to where he is today has been very nice to see, and also to see him from the sofa “

Better than Nadal and Federer

“Finishing seven years at number one, for him is an extra to all the greats he has won. But I think he will appreciate it even more with age. He has achieved it in a time when he has dominated two of the most greats, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal, and where he has also controlled the new generation of players, doing everything at the same time. I think what Djokovic has done in the last 10 years, winning the Grand Slam, being consistent and finishing in the number one for seven years, for me it is a clear sign that he is the greatest of all time “
