(CNN)The debate in tennis over who is the greatest player of all time — the GOAT — has raged on for years. But with the way Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have dominated in grand slams over the last 20 years, people are now suggesting that the current ‘Big Three’ of men’s tennis are the best ever.
Players such as Pete Sampras, Bjorn Borg and Rod Laver have all had their fair share of success during their separate eras but were unable to achieve the same level of domination as Federer, Nadal and Djokovic.
The trio have won a combined 46 grand slams and Andy Murray, who is one of the few players to have beaten a member of the ‘Big Three’ in a grand slam final, believes we are currently witnessing the pinnacle of tennis. In my opinion, all three of the best players are playing in this generation. You don’t have to compare the generations,” the 32-year-old said on an Instagram Live with Djokovic on Friday.
