Roger Federer briefly paused his preparation for Basel to send best wishes to newly-married friend Rafael Nadal.
Explaining that he was not part of the festivities, the father of four said:
I was not invited by Rafa, but I had not expected to be.
I congratulated him and hope he had the best day of his life.
I knew he wouldn’t reply to me immediately, because at his wedding he had other important things to do, like enjoying the party.
I am very happy for Rafa.
