Even though it seems the era of the current top 4 in Men’s tennis is coming to somewhat of an end or a change, it still is the one most appealing factor in today’s game. Obviously, putting Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal all in one bundle works wonders in terms of popularity, as Josh Berry does fantastic impressions of all four players.
How dominant have the four been? The last time a player not among them won a Grand Slam tournament was Juan Martin Del Potro in 2009. Murray does have only one of those titles, but he’s been to a few finals, and when not playing on the clay court, he’s a legitimate threat to the other three, not to mention being better than the aging and fading Roger Federer at the moment.
The Roland Garros will tell us if we’ve returned to the recent status quo: Rafael Nadal dominating the clay courts despite his long absence from the game and his shaky knees, while Novak Djokovic is the favorite to claim the rest, or somewhat of a chance, and Djokovic will be able to complete his career grand slam, and show once again he’s the best player in the world by quite a wide margin, regardless of the court and surface they’re playing on.
