Novak Djokovic credited with continued greatness of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer
Novak Djokovic’s return to the top means we can expect Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer to continue to shine, says Mats Wilander.
The Serbian star confirmed his return to his best following two years of struggle by beating Nadal en-route to winning Wimbledon this year.
Nadal and Federer, meanwhile, have shared the other two Grand Slams so far this year, meaning the ATP Tour bragging rights are up for grabs for all three players at the US Open later this month.

And that, according to former world number one Wilander, means motivation levels will stay high among the three for some time yet.
“The chase was launched when Federer was no longer winning much, when Nadal was winning especially at Roland Garros and Novak was winning almost all the rest, to disrupt the established order,” Wilander told French newspaper L’Equipe.
“And it is starting again. These three are again going to try to go still higher.
“I am not saying that Roger or Rafa can do it but they are going to see a reason to continue to work to challenge Djokovic’s game.
“It is for that reason that the return of Djokovic to the top is very exciting.
“And that is massive. At New York we are going to know who is the best in the world in 2018.”
