The youngsters of the ATP Tour will fail once again to displace Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic at the top of the rankings next year, says Ivan Ljubicic.
Only Andy Murray has been able to muscle in on the top spot in world tennis since the ‘big three’ began their era of domination.
2019 has been no different, with Rafael Nadal unseating Novak Djokovic to become the oldest year-end world number one in history.
And Ljubicic, who is Federer’s coach, sees no reason to expect a new claimant to the tennis crown in 2020, despite Stefanos Tsitsipas winning the ATP Finals last month.
“I still see the big three at the top next year,” Ljubicic told the Italian site Ubitennis.
“They are the best in the world and until they prove to me otherwise, they will always be the best players in the world.
“The only question may be whether they will be able to play enough to maintain this position.
“But it is difficult to imagine that someone could play better than them for twelve months.”
