Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer have been the most dominating players in tennis. Together, they have won 56 Grand Slams since 2003 which is absolutely amazing. Many fans may ask the question – how are they able to dominate like this? German former tennis player Michael Berrer has just answered this question.How Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer Dominate
In a recent interview with the Tennis Magazin, Michael Berrer talked about why Novak Djokovic, Nadal, and Federer are light years away from the other players. He said,
“You can see something. For example, how perfectly they prepare. I always preach to young players: be punctual. Most come into the hall two minutes before the training session and then put their smartphone down. Ideally, the training starts on the pitch 40 minutes before the session. Then the cell phone is off, it just distracts. You have to pay full attention to the training.”
Berrer went on to talk about another reason why young players are not as good as the ‘Big 3’ of tennis. He said,
“I experience that the young players only watch highlights, only the top shots. They forget that tennis is not decided by winners, but by percentage tennis. Djokovic and Co. also play 80 percent through the middle or towards big goals. The ATP hot shots, however, suggest that there are only sensational strikes.”
Even though every single member of the ‘Big 3’ is over the age of 30, they are still able to beat much younger players to the Grand Slam titles. However, the younger players like Dominic Thiem are slowly starting to get closer to winning a Grand Slam.
He has already reached three Grand Slam finals – two at the French Open and one at the Australian Open this year. The Australian Open final was his best chance to win a Grand Slam but he sadly lost to Novak in a thrilling five-setter. His next opportunity to win one is going to come at this year’s US Open and hopefully, he will finally win it.

Indiana city is to test app for cyclists that will signal traffic lights to turn green 300ft BEFORE they approach in bid to lower traffic
An Indiana city will be the second to test out a new app that will alert traffic lights that bicyclist are approaching in a bid to decongest roads for them and motorists.
Fort Wayne will implement the GiveMeGreen! app software at nine intersections throughout the city, allowing for the lights to sense when a cyclist is within 300ft of an intersection.
The app - developed by Sensys Networks - links the various lights to smartphones of those who have downloaded the app, WANE reports.

Fort Wayne city officials are looking for cyclist to test out the app and provide feedback on its usefulness (one of the nine intersections)
'It doesn't mean the light will be green when you get to the intersection, but it will be much sooner than if you rode over to the button and pushed it,' said Amy Hartzog, Program Manager of Greenways and Trails.
'We believe the technology will improve the rider experience whether you're on a leisurely ride or your daily commute.'

Fort Wayne city officials are looking for cyclist to test out the app and provide feedback on its usefulness.
'We are trying this as a test project, and we need cyclists to try it out and give us feedback,' added Brent Spindler, Director of Traffic Operations. 'We think it's going to work well, especially when a bike comes to an intersection with little traffic.'
Indiana has had a noted history of collisions between pedalcyclist, pedestrians and motorists in the city.
According to the 2018 Indiana Crash Facts from the Indiana University Public Police Institute, 822 pedalcyclist were involved in collisions in 2018. Of those, 22 cyclist were killed and another 610 were injured.
The crash facts also show that 1,758 pedestrians were involved in collisions and of those, 115 people were killed while 1,378 were injured.
Fort Wayne is the second city to use the app, with Santa Clarita, California, the first city to try out the program in 2019.

The system will also include a 'bicycle-only' light at each intersections along the bike trail which will confirm to them that they have been detected by the app (stock)
In a press release shared last February, when the Californian city announced that it was doing the program, GiveMeGreen! shared that the app would apply 'normal pedestrian crossing signal timing function.'
'This will allow pedestrians and bicyclists to use the same signal phase and will not cause any delay for motorists,' the release added.
In that particular city, new signs were also created to alert motorist that bicycles and pedestrians were crossing the intersection at the next available green light.RELATED ARTICLES

The system will also include a 'bicycle-only' light at each intersections along the bike trail which will confirm to them that they have been detected by the app.
'This free app will greatly benefit both bicyclists and motorists by providing better information about the presence of bikes at these intersections,' Cesar Romo, Chief Traffic Signal System Administrator for the City of Santa Clarita, said at the time.
'GiveMeGreen! not only improves safety, but also improves the ride experience for Santa Clarita's legions of bicyclists with automatic and reliable advance detection.' This pilot system demonstrates the flexibility of the Sensys Networks platform, as it integrates with third-party signs and City traffic controllers.Read more:
