Novak Djokovic stands alone at the end of an era: The 'Big Three' have shared 60 of the last 71 majors
Roger Federer started his career at Roland Garros in 1999 and went onto have an illustrious career in the tournament until the 2021 edition. The Swiss was rewarded with the Musketeers' Cup in 2009, coinciding with Rafael Nadal's first defeat in the round of 16 to Robin Soderling.
In 2005, the Big Three began to take shape with the appearance in the draw of Nadal and Novak Djokovic. The Big Three have endured a whole generation, although the age and drive of the new generation, led by Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner and Holger Rune, means that the end of an era is drawing ever closer.
Federer retired last season and Nadal has already announced that his intention is to say goodbye next year if his physique allows him to.
