Boris Becker asks Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal to discuss retirement roles | tennis | sports

Boris Becker has urged Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal to keep playing for at least another “two years” as he hails their influence after tennis. The six-time major champion also took part in a unique role he thought every member of the Big Three could play after his retirement, with Roger Federer already calling it a day last September.

Becker has been enjoying his speech to the Big Three and their ongoing discussion about the goats this week after longtime official Djokovic set a new all-time record for most weeks at world number one with 378 and counting. Having already led Nadal to regain his top four Grand Slam titles at the French Open, the German has now given his way in their rivalry and implored the two superstars to keep competing.

“I think Djokovic, along with Nadal and Federer, go beyond being sporting icons, they are cultural icons,” the former world number one said of the Big Three, speaking to Eurosport. He shared a unique job role that he believed all three men could take on after retirement, adding: “Each one of them can be president of their own countries, they have followers beyond their own: Serbia, Spain and Switzerland.”

Becker then turned his attention back to the two remaining active members of the Big Three, adding, “Their influence on tennis is huge, and we will only truly understand it when they retire. God willing, I hope Novak and Rafa play for at least two more years because we will all benefit from that, not Only tennis but sports in general.
