Grand Slam count cannot separate Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic, says top coach

The Grand Slam count alone should not be used to decide who is the greatest between Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic, says Sascha Bajin.

Federer, Djokovic, and Nadal have been locked in a battle for just about every record in men’s tennis for the best part of two decades now.

A key part of that battle is the career Grand Slam count, with Federer and Nadal currently leading Djokovic by two.

However, Baijin, who used to coach Naomi Osaka, says there are too many ‘other factors’ to rely solely on the majors.

“It is not because you have the most Grand Slam titles that you are automatically the best tennis player,” Bajin told Sport1.de.

“So many other factors must be brought together and it is moreover difficult to define them.

“We should just appreciate the fact that the big three can play for a long time to come, and especially hope that in the future they can meet on the court.”
