Rising British talent Draper puts Thiem alongside Big Four in his all-time list: “They all are quite electric when they’re playing, you never know what’s going to happen”




Jack Draper names Dominic Thiem as one of his idols alongside the big four of Federer, Djokovic, Nadal and Murray.

Jack Draper will replace Andy Murray as Britain’s No. 3 on Monday as he continues his breakout season. Draper opened the season well on the Challenger Tour by winning a few events, after which he also proved himself on the ATP Tour.

The Brit looks set to become Britain’s number one eventually and a big list of tennis idols provides more than enough inspiration on the journey:

“Obviously you’ve got those Big 4, Andy included in that. I’ll also probably say, Dominic Thiem. When I was younger, he was someone I loved watching and always followed. So, I would say, Murray, the Big 3 and Thiem.”

Continuing on the subject, Draper explained what they had in common:

“What they have in common is that they are incredible competitors on the tennis court. They are all pretty electric when they play. You never know what’s going to happen, but one thing the “we know is that they’re always going to be in the game and work hard for every point. Plus they all have different styles and ways of playing, and as a young player that’s always exciting have.”
