There is no lack of young talent to beat the trio of Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic (Part 1)

The best young tennis players in the world are proving to be willing to join the group of the most strong players when the second year in a row was the removal of the “Big Three” from the ATP Finals. For five straight years, the “crown” of this tournament does not belong to Federer, Nadal or Djokovic.

The final match of this season’s ATP tournament is the rivalry of two young tennis players: Thiem and Medvedev

The two players who have outperformed the existing number 1 and 2 in the world are Djokovic and Nadal in the semi-finals. Thiem and Medvedev have committed very good matches, entertaining and not less dramatic. 

At the ATP Finals 2020, Novak Djokovic was unable to equal the championship record of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, who both struggled to conquer the “throne” of the first ATP Finals in his career. The two best players in the world both missed a game against the young talents of the World Ball Village.

Before the of the ATP Finals 2020, Djokovic was ranked No. 1 in the world and the 33-year-old Serbian was determined to crown the tournament to merit his place. But all predictions were false when Nole suddenly lost the match after three dramatic matches against the defending U.S. Open champion – 27-year-old Austrian Dominic Thiem – in the semi-final of the ATP Finals 2020. 

This was the second time that Thiem beat Djokovic at the ATP Finals and shortened the score to 5-7 against the Serbian seniors.

This important victory allowed Thiem to cross the milestone of 300 undefeated matches at the ATP Tour level

In addition, Thiem also won six times over Nadal, five times over Federer and along with Andy Murray were two players who defeated members of the “Big Three” group (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic). 

Not only on clay, the 27-year-old Austrian tennis player is now highly intimidating on the difficult court. The evidence is that Thiem made the Australian Open final earlier this year, building a suffocating final and just missing Djokovic in a haircut. Then Thiem proceeded to win the US Open very convincingly, beating Nadal on the crowning lane.
