Former World No 2 Alex Corretja believes Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will each win at least one Grand Slam in 2021. In 2020, Nadal won the French Open to secure a 20th Grand Slam title in his career, while Djokovic won the Australian Open to move to 17 majors.

“I honestly think that Djokovic and Nadal are going to continue to be at the top, I would even say that the two will add at least one more Grand Slam,” the Spaniard told Eurosport.

“As for those who can jump, I think Medvedev is very close to winning a Grand Slam tournament and that Thiem will once again be a very tough opponent, especially having the experience of New York already and knowing that he can, that helps very much.

“Dominic has a lot of strength, experience and plays well on all surfaces, it will be very difficult to stop him. I would love for Felix-Auger Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov to also take that step forward, they are two players that I love. [Stefanos] Tsitsipas is another who should also do it.”
