The current chairperson of the ATP, Andrea Gaudenzi has confronted that he is little stressed to lose “The Big 3” of the sport. Although the top ranks are in the hands of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic for a long time now Gaudenzi believes that the sport can continue to excel even after the ‘Top 3’ retires.
“We will be capable of building new personalities, new champions that will attract the attention of fans,” said Andrea, the former tennis player.
Gaudenzi has immense trust in the aspiring champions. He believes they will raise the level of the sport to compete and grow in today’s entertainment market. Nonetheless nothing is taken away from the top rankers. They are the best players our sport has ever had and will be for a very long time.
Andrea Gaudenzi shares a previous story of Pete Sampras retirement
The chairman recalls a previous story when Pete Sampras retired and with that the men’s tennis seemed to lose an icon. But soon after that, the sport has witnessed the emergence of future legends like Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic. Similarly, now he looks forward to someone else stepping up when The Big 3 retire.
“It’s going to be very, very difficult to achieve that type of records, even though I said the same thing when Pete Sampras retired,” said Andrea.
According to the Italian, one should be realistic apart from being a fan of the champions. The personalities ruling the sport now are made over the years with the best of their team’s effort. For instance, Federer never rose suddenly, he grew into that. Similarly, the sport will also acknowledge such journeys of rising stars in the future.
Gaudenzi’s great hopes from April
The chairman has great hopes for the upcoming month of April as it could decide the World No.1. It features several ATP 250 series tournaments with the ATP 500 event in Barcelona, including the Monte Carlo Masters. At this period, Djokovic can elevate to the top. However, in May, with Madrid Open, Italian Open, and French Open, Medvedev stands a chance to win thousands of points and rise to the top ranks.
