We know how the head-to-head has gone since the 2010s started, but this was the match-up that got people off their seats for a few years.

We have seen Djokovic battle it out with these two and Murray in recent Grand Slams, but assuming Fed and Rafa are almost done winning Grand Slams, who will be the next big rivalry in tennis?

Who will contest the big finals and which new match-up will create the best drama?

We have already seen the beginnings of a few exciting match-ups in recent years, Djokovic v Nishikori, and Murray v Dimitrov.

Let's assume the hyped players actually come good...

Sock - RBA

Just kidding. Some Coric-Kokk-Kyrgios combination.

Fedal is not a rivalry, it's an abomination.

My vote is not so much for the next big rivalry as such, but the next rivalry amongst the 'young guns'.

Voted Kyrgios vs Kokkinakis but also think Kyrgios vs Coric which really should have been an option!

Sock-Krygios, starting in 2017 or 2018. Until then, its Djokovic-Murray.

Actually Nishikori vs. Raonic is a quite interesting rivarly, if we are excluding big 4. And we are experiencing it right now.

Of course maybe it's not Federer - Nadal or Nadal - Djokovic calliber, but I'm not hesitate to call it a rivarly. Very nice contrast between their tennis styles, achievement wise they can also be comparable.

Coric vs Djokovic from 2018.

Balkan derby. It will be especially interesting in AO where chetnik rednecks will fight the ustashe rednecks. Blood will be spilled on the bleachers, sweatbands will be soaken on the court.

Raonic-Nishikori is one of the most exciting and high-quality rivalries. If both achieve more, this is the rivalry to look forward to. :D

From what I learnt the last few days on MTF there won't be a next big rivalry.
Djokovic is not only the perfect and unbeatable* tennis player but he is the best human being this planet has ever witness.
I'm also pretty sure the gods amongst us provided him the immortality since his presence on earth is an example and an inspiration to all mankind.

Therefore there won't be any rivalry, Djokovic won't have any rivals at least for the next 500 years.

Good shout, this one! Nick actually already has a 1-0 H2H over Jack, beating him in the Savannah Challenger Final on clay last year!:sport:
