Wally Masur Tips Grigor Dimitrov to End Big Four’s Dominance at Grand Slams

Former Australian tennis player, Wally Masur, insists that the domination of the Big Four – comprising of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray – might come to an end with the augment of some young emerging players, who have flourished of late.

The Big Four have managed to pull off 36 out of the last 38 Grand Slams, and have always been the favorites at the majors. Besides Juan Martin del Potro winning the U.S. Open title in 2009, the recently-concluded season saw two other players outside the Big Four triumphing at the Slams: Stanislas Wawrinka (Australian Open 2014) and Marin Cilic (U.S. Open 2014).

But, young talents like Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and Milos Raonic of Canada have the ability to triumph at the major tournaments.

“Dimitrov and Raonic are the ones I really think can make an impact this year and at the Australian Open,’’ Masur was quoted as saying by Fox Sports.

“If I had to pick the next one to win a major, I think Dimitrov is best,” he continued. “He’s the most athletic, the most versatile yet he has the power and I think he’s the closest athletically to the top four.”
