Tommy Robredo suggested that the fab-four concept in tennis is flawed and according to the Spanish the only two players that are amongst the best are Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Nadal and Federer have each won a Grand Slam title after their return from injuries.

Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray have been known as the Fab-Four of Tennis in this era.

However, Spanish tennis star Tommy Robredo does not resonate with the concept and suggested that according to him it is just Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer who are worthy of the title.

"I would not say four but two because for me Nadal and Federer are at another level, in another dimension," the Spaniard said recently.

Rafael Nadal recently won his record tenth French Open title and 15th Grand Slam title that resulted in him surpassing Pete Sampras to become the second in the list of most majors, after Roger Federer.

"Rafa won Roland Garros, Monte Carlo and Barcelona 10 times: it's easy to say it, but if you think about it, it's something unbelievable.

"Despite Murray being no. 1 and a phenomenon, Nadal is an icon for what he did, for the fact that he has been playing for a long time, his Grand Slam titles, Masters 1000, autographs he has signed.

"They are things that if compared to Djokovic, who was no. 1 too, are light-years away.

"And then Federer, the person who sells the most tickets in the world after not playing for six months." he said.

Roger Federer make a stunning comeback after a career-threatening injury to win his 18th Grand Slam title in the form of the Australian Open, followed by wins at Indian Wells and Miami Open.

On the other hand, Djokovic has won 12 Grand Slam titles, but recently fell out of the world's top two players for the first time since 2011 while Murray has two major titles and two Olympic Golds to his name.
