Andy Murray Says Dominic Thiem Wouldn’t Have Won US Open if Novak Djokovic Hadn’t Been Defaulted.
Novak Djokovic recently won his 18th Grand Slam final at the Australian Open 2021.
The Serbinator has shown some great skills and defeated Daniil Medvedev in straight sets in the finals. The final score line of the match was 7-5, 6-2, 6-2.
Andy Murray’s opinion on the ‘Big Three’ vs ‘Next-Gen’ debate.
After the match, three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray expressed his opinions on the ‘Big Three’ vs ‘Next-Gen’ debate.
Daniil Medvedev played well but was not able to stand anywhere near Djoker in the finals. Somewhere, the new generation players failed to meet the expectations of their fans in the AO season 2021.
In a recent interview, former World No. One Andy Murray expressed that he was quite disappointed with the younger guys. According to him, they have not completely shown that fighting spirit against the ‘Big Three’.
“The younger guys, for me, they’ve not shown that they’re particularly close,” said Murray in the interview.
Statements made by Murray reflects his expectations from the next generation of players.
However, he believes that they need to improve a lot in order to defeat great players like Novak or win a Grand Slam title.
Andy Murray believes that Dominic Thiem would not have won the US Open 2020 if Novak Djokovic would not have suffered an unfortunate exit.
Adding to that, he also claimed in the same interview that Djoker would have won it if he would have stayed in the tournament.
Although he also applauded Thiem for his US Open 2020 title.
“Obviously what happened at the US Open, Thiem obviously did what he had to do to win the event but if Novak hadn’t put a ball through the line judge’s throat, it would be the same outcome I think,” added the British player.
Furthermore, the British tennis player definitely feels that the next-gen players are still behind from Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer.
Now, Andy Murray will make a return to the ATP Tour at the Open Sud de France today. He’ll certainly try to gain some momentum and win the tournament.
