Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal backed to continue their dominance of men’s tennis in 2021
Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will each win at least one Grand Slam in 2021, according to former world No 2 Alex Corretja.
Djokovic finished 2020 top of the world rankings having won the Australian Open to move to 17 majors while Nadal won the French Open to secure a 20th Grand Slam and cement his place at No 2 in the ATP Rankings.
Dominic Thiem was the other Grand Slam winner in the shortened season as the Austrian won his maiden major at the US Open.
Two-time French Open finalist Corretja believes Djokovic and Nadal will again dominate at the top while he believes Russian Daniil Medvedev, who finished runner-up at the 2019 US Open and won the 2020 ATP Finals, is “close to winning” a major.
“I honestly think that Djokovic and Nadal are going to continue to be at the top, I would even say that the two will add at least one more Grand Slam,” the Spaniard told Eurosport.
“As for those who can jump, I think Medvedev is very close to winning a Grand Slam tournament and that Thiem will once again be a very tough opponent, especially having the experience of New York already and knowing that he can, that helps very much.
“Dominic has a lot of strength, experience and plays well on all surfaces, it will be very difficult to stop him.
“I would love for Felix-Auger Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov to also take that step forward, they are two players that I love.
“[Stefanos] Tsitsipas is another who should also do it.”
