With how competitive the race for the Grand Slam record is becoming (Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are closing in on Roger Federer's 20), fans might suspect that hostility would creep up between the Big Three.

Instead, it’s the opposite. Djokovic confirmed that not only do they respect each other, but also they even have an active WhatsApp group chat. This is truly the greatest era in tennis.


While the chat may realistically have more to do with congratulations and business discussions about council matters rather than sending jokes and memes, it's great to hear that the best players in the world are pals.

Or maybe they are just devising plans to keep the ATP NextGen from taking over for the next 10 years, who knows?
