Big 3 fans who are you rooting for if Shapovalov/Zverev becomes a rivalry?

When all our favourite players retire and if Zverev/Shapovalov develop a rivalry, how will big 3 fans take sides, for those who continue to follow the sport?

Fed fan - I am leaning towards Denis. Because of his one-handed BH and forehand bomb.

Denis for sure, Zverev is boring a bit like Berdych.

Do we really need future fan wars as vicarious fan wars of the big 3? You could just ask all fans not just the fans of the big 3...

Re: Big 3 fans who are you rooting for if Shapovalov/Zverev becomes a rivalry?

Same with me OP, I like Denis' charisma and tennis style- a mix of offensive flair and creative angles. I guess I'm partial this way because of the Fed brand of tennis I've enjoyed (and been spoiled with) well since Roger came onto the stage. Although as a kid growing up in the 80's I was the biggest John McEnroe fan. Still am in fact, like a 'first love' thing, it never really goes away. Maybe that's why volatile personalities don't bother me as much as some other people here. I've been an apologist for Kyrgios at times when I shouldn't have been.

But Denis seems to have a good head on his shoulders, so hopefully he's got all the tools to continue making big waves...

When the kid gets a few beatdowns outside of Canada is over.
Please, Zverev is infinitely superior.

Why single out these two, when we all know Kokk is the future.

Not a big 3 fan, but not really decided at the moment. Vaguely but dispassionately like both.

Not a big 3 fan but I like Denis' game more. Hopefully there will be many more players competing for big titles than just these two though.

Re: Big 3 fans who are you rooting for if Shapovalov/Zverev becomes a rivalry?

Heh, heh - back in 2007 I adopted Djokovic as my future guy for when Federer eventually declined. I still root for both, though I root for Djokovic more.

I adopted Zverev as one of my guys in 2014 when he was 17 years old, but I probably will also adopt Shapovalov as one of my favorites (though I don't think he'll pass Zverev in the near future).

Neither. I don't particularly enjoy their styles.

And it's Big 4.
