‘We are going to be the big six, not the big three’ – Stefanos Tsitsipas backs ATP youngsters

Stefanos Tsitsipas believes men’s tennis is heading towards a stacked amount of talent at the top of the game.

For the last decade-and-a-half, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic have dominated the sport to an extent we have never seen before.

Between them they have won 58 Grand Slam titles and carved up just about every major record in tennis between them.

It has seen them come to be known collectively as the ‘big three,’ and they are still adding to their stunning list of achievements even now.

Tsitsipas, meanwhile, is one of an exciting crop of younger players who will take over at the top as Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic start stepping away from the game.

Young stars such as Lorenzo Musetti, Jannik Sinner, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Denis Shapovalov, Alexander Zverev, and Andrey Rublev are all starting to make their mark, and Tsitsipas thinks they can take tennis to another level again.

“I think our generation is going to be different,” Tsitsipas said.

“We have gotten used to talking and reading the big three all the time and I feel like we are going to be the big six or the big eight.

I think it will be more fascinating, a kind of revolution, to have a greater number of players competing with each other.

“It will be more exciting for the viewer.”
