Stan Wawrinka backs Novak Djokovic in GOAT debate, but insists it is ultimately subjective
Stan Wawrinka is the latest person to have his say on the ‘GOAT’ debate, with the three-time Grand Slam champion discussing the ‘big three’ of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
He has also partnered Federer as part of Switzerland’s winning Davis Cup team in 2014, and described his fellow Swiss as a ‘big brother’ when he retired last year.
Happy birthday @rogerfederer ????

Stan Wawrinka discussed the biggest debate in tennis with RMC Sports saying: “Novak Djokovic is the best current player and he has proven it in everything he has done for 20 years.
“They broke all the records between him, Rafa and Roger. They took everything and ate everything. These are the greatest players in the history of tennis.
“Let’s go on the GOAT, I have no problem saying things and saying what I think. It all depends on what one is looking for in this list, simply.
“Already I think it’s difficult to talk about athletes who are still playing. It’s always better to make a list when the players have stopped and finished their career.
