Australian tennis player, Nick Kyrgios has thought that Roger Federer is the greatest tennis player the world has ever produced.
Though the question of the greatest tennis player is open-ended, the world number 44 has opened up that the the Swiss player is the best.
“In my opinion, I think Federer is still (the GOAT). I think he is almost like a (Michael) Jordan status type thing. He was the main guy that was so dominant on every kind of surface. I think the way he plays the game is something special,” the 25-year old player said.
Nevertheless, Kyrgios made mention of Rafael Nadal dominance in the French Open, which he tagged as an achviement that cannot be repeated.
“I wasn’t surprised when I saw Rafa pretty much easing his way through the draw at the French Open. That’s his backyard, he loves playing there and he has only lost two matches in his entire career,” he said.
“Honestly, in my opinion I don’t think we are going to see anything like that ever again. Somebody so dominant on a surface he’s right there with the greatest of all time. You can argue that he is the greatest,’ he continued.
Meanwhile, he tagged Rafael Nadal as the dominant player of the era.
You look at Federer, he’s the most dominant player of all time, but in this era it’s actually Rafa. It’s a debate you can have.” He said
