It was not so long ago when we were saying that Rodger Federer is the new Pete Sampras. Then Nadal came along and became Federer and before we could even blink here comes Mr Novak Djokovic!
I am a big Federer supporter and really wanted him to beat Novak in the US open semi’s. When Federer came back in the 5th set I thought, wow, he’s still got it. But then Novak saved a couple of match points against him and a few days later he has another Grand slam title to his name.

You have to feel for the guys who’ve been on top for so long and then just can’t quite stay on that upward curve as the next big thing (currently Djokovic) begins to reign!
Even more so for the Murray’s and Roddicks of this world 🙂
The fun part comes in when the debate is reopened as to who is THE best player of all time! We all have our opinions and hey I might just write another article soon and let you know who I think that player is………. and nope its not Michael Chang!

You can bite on both!

What I love about tennis is that no matter how good a certain player is and there have been a few – it doesn’t last forever!
Specifically tennis because of it not being a team sport. When you look back at the Mcenroe/Bjorg clashes, Borris Becker dominating on grass, Jim Courier owning the clay courts, Sampras just basically having a field day with everybody and then Federer taking it to another level!
In all of the above however you see one constant -The Changing of the Guard! (Cheesy, I know, putting the title in the content!)
But it’s exciting to see Federer try maintain his top spot as Nadal comes along and everyone starts asking is he the best to have ever played and then now Djokovic staking his claim to the crown. With even the likes of Andy Murray and Roddick (wait… sorry I have nothing to back up those last 2 names!).
I just love the battle between the old dog who who’s seen it all, his exploits precede him, just his look or growl puts fear into his opponent AND the new pup who comes in fearless with only one thing on his mind – ITS MY TURN!
