Roger Federer says Rafael Nadal has ‘a heart of gold’

Roger Federer is the latest celebrity to participate in Vogue’s 73 questions video series.

The Swiss player takes Joe on a tour of the All England Club while talking about being a ball boy, the perfect serve, and what it’s actually like playing at Centre Court during Wimbledon. Also, he was asked about Rafa and here’s what he had to say.

Q. Can you tell me actually something really quick about Mr. Rafael Nadal?

ROGER FEDERER: What would you like to know? He’s an intense guy on the court. He’s super honest and open off the court, and he’s got a heart of gold. He’s also gonna help me with my foundation again next year. We’re gonna try to break the record for most attendance in Cape Town in South Africa for my foundation. I’m so looking forward to it. So, thank you, Rafa!

Q. Who’s the player that you dread playing the most?

RF: Rafa Nadal.

Q. Who’s your favourite player to play?

  1. Geddy Lee, FYI Roger and Rafa are in the same section of the draw so it is impossible for them to meet in the final. They could face off in the semifinals though.
