What is better than a Tennis365 exclusive? Nothing, as we all know, and we delivered a corker for you.

Top Sky Sports analyst and former world number four Greg Rusedski told us two names he expects to break the dominance of the ‘golden generation’ of Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, and Novak Djokovic.

In other news, players are feeling reflective.

Roger Federer has been looking back on his season and has revealed which two points he’d just love to replay if he could.

And Novak Djokovic has been talking about the shot he has worked on most after injury and hailing it as the biggest-difference maker in his season.

What’s in the news
Angelique Kerber has commented on Alexander Zverev’s recent success, saying she’s proud of her compatriot – and herself, incidentally.

Zverev won the ATP Tour Finals at The O2, beating both Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic along the way.

“I’m proud of him for what he did in London,” said Kerber.

“Sascha Zverev and I are good role models for the young players.”

Kerber also commented on her reasons for appointing Rainer Schuttler her as her new coach for 2019.

“I had already thought about a few names, but Rainer meets all the criteria,” she added.

“He has already gained experience as a player and coach.

“He does not have anyone on the WTA tour trained, but that will not be a big change for him.

“With Rainer you can have fun – and trust him.

“Everything starts with me, if I’m not motivated, it does not matter if it’s the best or the worst coach.”
