An amazing spectacle – the last dance, last time The Big 4 will ever appear as four active players. It’s a celebration not just of Roger but what those 4 men did collectively. Something people studying game theory & competition outcomes will award PhDs in. How multi-co-champions can emerge in a final outcome. Is a Federer “Type” needed to get the whole thing going? Did a major “spark” happening lead to other golden ages in literature, in science booming in one location? Not only sports?
Roger seems happy and the others of the Big 4, the Big 3 in recent years – where else would they want to be than right there in Laver Cup, really?
116 Masters, 66 Slams, slews of ATP and OLympics titles. Gobs of Finals. 933 weeks as #1 (17.94 years) When you look up Big 4 and hit the Wiki article, it just lists all the major events Slams, Masters, ATP, Olympics. And assigns a Green color for a Big 4 win. It’s a sea of Green.
Great stuff for Berrettini, Ruud, and Tsitsipas “Yeah, son, long ago, and it’s not bragging, I was part of the 6-Man Tennis Team of the Ages.

Gosh,
I feel so proud of Roger, Rafa, Novak and Andy especially – the big four. Historic. It really is something else, unforgettable.

So very pleased that Rafa and Roger are together again. A great moment. Having Roger next to me, one more time!

Watching Fed’s press conference, he is just about keeping it together! Come on Roger!

Murray, Novak and Rafa are right there by your side.

We love you Roger!

How lucky are we tennis-x’ers to be a part of this time in tennis history.

Top Gun!
