The sport of tennis is set for a defining season in 2020. With the top three players in the world over the past 15 years – Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer – entering the twilight of their careers, new players have emerged as genuine threats to their supremacy.
In this 8-part series, we’ll assess each player in the top eight and what they can achieve in 2020. We’ll look at how their positions are under threat and what they can do to attain their goals in the season to come. It’s never easy to look forward, but with our 2020 vision, you’ll have the benefit of hindsight when you’re talking tennis during the next 12 months.
We continue our series with an analysis of Roger Federer who, as it stands, is the most successful male tennis player of all-time. With 20 Grand Slam titles, the Swiss master, otherwise known as ‘Fed Ex’ – so named because he always delivers – is set for a defining season for the tone of his legacy.
Can Federer claim the Grand Slam title he’ll surely need to cement his place at the top of the all-time list? Or will Rafael Nadal win the French Open and possibly more to usurp his long-time on-court nemesis.
