I’ve always had something special with you. You are a big inspiration for my tennis and my mentality… and I think your love and passion for this sport is a great inspiration for this generation.

Thank you very much for all the things that you did for our sport and especially thank you for your passion on court.

All the best for the future and we hope to see you around.

    Great point by Elaine. Becker made big improvements to Novak’s forehand drive, slice backhand, net game and 2nd serve. 2015 was the best year of his entire career. With no end in sight. He’s got a really good shot at winning the Golden Slam this year – i.e. – winning all 4 slams and the Olympics. If he accomplishes that, he’ll be the undisputed ‘GOAT’. He deserves it. He’s a total professional who puts everything he’s got into the game, never settling for 2nd, 3rd or 4th best. He’s 100% committed to being the best player he can possibly be. No excuses. No retreat. No surrender. I wish it was Rafa. But it’s not. He doesn’t have the fire in his belly anymore. Novak took it – and sure looks like he intends to keep it.

      Frankly, I am not mildly interested in the Serb, I loathe his arrogance and peevish behaviour . Great player but will never be in the same league as Rafael Nadal . Let us trust that Rafael will iron out the issues with his game . He has nothing to prove but it would be lovely to see him winning top tournaments again. I think he will.

    I always felt that Rafael and Leyton showed similar passion on court, they played doubles together and had fun and a bit of mischief. While Leyton has retired from the ATP tour he will not be lost to tennis. Wishing him and his family all the best
