Empty seats is what the future of tennis is like when the Big 3 are gone. Let’s hope Zverev’s injury isn’t too serious because he was really good yesterday.
Tennis really needs guys like Zverev, Tsitsipas and Alcaraz to start winning slams before the Big 3 actually retire. It’s insane that Rafa and Roger are probably months away from retirement but Zverev and Tsitsipas haven’t even won their first slams. Federer and Nadal started beating Agassi regularly before he retired, that was the last era’s changeover of the guard. There’s been nothing like that for the Big 3.
