The rivalry between Rafa Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer has marked a unique era in tennis. It has been (and for now will continue to be) something worth living and probably unrepeatable. The three members of the Big Three know this and that is why they sportly salute the victories that each of the others achieve, such as that of Novak Djokovic this Sunday at Wimbledon, the sixth on British grass.
Congrats @DjokerNole on this amazing achievement. 20 Grand Slam titles is huge and it is amazing that we are 3 players tied on this. Well done and, again, congrats to you and your team for this!@Wimbledon
