The former is Not. 1 in the world Andy Roddick says that the current situation is worrisome for all players, since the best players, like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams, are losing a year in his best time, while the players with the lowest rank will fight with no income, in an interview for Forbes magazine.
Roddick says that the closure affects Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams as they pursue the story
The former US Open champion said: “it Has to be brutal for the players. Especially Roger, Rafa and Djokovic, more Serene, those vying for the record of Slams of all time this year.
You hate to think that it (the pandemic) could potentially dictate who ends up on top. We do not have an infinite number of years prime. I’m not worried about the best players or tournaments. Will be fine (financially) and still obtain most of their contracts back.
I am concerned about lower level players and tournaments that run with an annual budget. Many of them can’t handle a zero per year. I’d be surprised if we overcome this without some individual tournaments disappear, or some players quit, because there is very little margin of error.
I think that it is silly to make a comparison of anything with the “old” normal at this time. It is time to make lemonade “. The american, who retired in 2012, says that the current situation is completely out of the control of the players and that the players will have to wait and watch the approach.
“I have not heard anyone that is super optimistic about a clear path forward at this time. People might be clinging to the hope more than anything else at this time. Tennis has its own unique set of challenges. There are also a lot of uncertainty about the virus itself.
Ultimately, it is completely out of the control of the players and, like the rest of the things in life at this moment, it is just a wait and see situation “. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are chasing the story for the most amount of Grand Slam titles.
Federer won 20, followed by Nadal with 19, and Djokovic 17. Serena Williams, who won 23 majors, aims at the record of Margaret Court’s 24 Grand Slam titles.
