- Federer on Most Special Rivalry (Tennis Now)
So which rivalry is most special to the 17-time Grand Slam champion?
“Which is more special? It’s hard to predict,” Federer said. “Maybe slightly Rafa just because he came before Novak. I’ve always enjoyed the matchup with Novak. I think it’s always very cool and athletic and straightforward, unlike Rafa where I feel like I have to change my game completely to compete with him.”

Ex-Spain footballer Miguel Angel expects his brother to remain in the legendary left hander’s corner in 2016.
“I don’t think so. It would be very weird for me to find out in press, about things happening at home,” the former Barcelona defender told Omnisport when asked if his nephew may appoint a new coach.
“I have this news available to me at home. Obviously it’s been a while and that’s exhausting for anyone working at the level they work, but both [Toni and Rafa] can be very pleased of what they have achieved over their careers.
“I think they are now where they want to be and fighting to be up there again.”
“Hello Manila,” said Nadal. “I am very excited to be playing in Manila this year for the IPTL. It will be my first time there, and I hope we are going to have a great time.”
Nadal is set to play in two match days in Manila, representing the Indian Aces alongside Agnieszka Radwanska, Sania Mirza, Gael Monfis, Rohan Bopanna, Fabrice Santoro, and Ivan Dodig.
Apart from Nadal, top-ranked Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) player Serena Williams is also confirmed to play in Manila.
