Diego Schwartzman resisted the urge to join the tennis GOAT debate, insisting instead that the ‘big three’ are beautiful in their variety.
Schwartzman has been battling the Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic for his whole career, and is well positioned to discuss their respective games.
However, when asked by journalists in Paris which one his thinks is the best and who is the true tennis GOAT (greatest of all time), he had a much more relevant answer of offer.
“I’m not going to say who is the better,” Schwartzman told the press after his semi-final defeat.
“But I can say the most beautiful thing about these three guys is how different they are on court and outside the court. They are really different.
“If you see, I don’t know, the food from Nole, the food from Rafa or Roger, then how they play on court.
“One likes to play on clay, the other one one on grass. Also one lefty, the other aggressive, the other one is sliding like nobody.
“I think the most beautiful thing it’s for sure how different these guys are. So that’s amazing.”
