Roger Federer has revealed what Rafael Nadal told him during a phone call before they rejoined the ATP Player Council.
With Rafa and myself, we just felt that there was a small opportunity after some guys retired from the council, which was unfortunate to see. I don’t like seeing that but that opened the door for us to join the council.
I called Rafa up and I thought what do you think? I would only do it with you and he said ‘I would only do it if you come too’.
That’s when we sent in our proposal and joined the group again. This is when Novak and the rest of the council guys had to decide.
I would like to support the good ideas they have and the bad ideas, let’s talk about them or how can we do it differently.
Tennis is doing well at the end of the day so we don’t have to talk things bad but it has ben a bit rocky on the communication side of things.
I think having Novak, me and Rafa and the other top guys on the council, everybody wants to do the right thing for the tour.
It makes things so much more simpler. We have been on the council before and we worked very well together so I expect the same now.
