Tennis’ ‘Big Three’, comprising of Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, have formed the cream of 21st century players. But if there are a couple of them who have staged unreal dominance at some point, it’s the latter duo.

While Federer went on a rampage between 2004 and 2006, finishing the seasons with sensational win-loss records of 77-8, 84-4 and 94-6, Djokovic enjoyed his best years in 2011 (78-7), 2013 (79-10), 2015 (83-6) and 2016 (66-9).

So, who’s dominance has been better? It’s a tough one to answer… not for Mats Wilander though.

The former world No. 1 and multiple Grand Slam champion feels there’s just one winner in the debate.

“When Novak Djokovic is at his best, he can win all the Grand Slams in a row, as he has in the past and is so close to doing it again,” Wilander was quoted as saying by

“What Novak did in 2015 and 2016 – and they can repeat now – is a bigger field than any other tennis player in history. Nor has Roger Federer ever been so dominant.”

Meanwhile, both Djokovic and Federer are scheduled to participate at this week’s BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.
