Roger Federer is currently on a tour of North and South America and he was asked about his relationship with Rafael Nadal.
He told reporters:
He’s a good guy. He’s a great player.
Who would have thought he was going to be world No 1 again this year after being No 1 for the first time 11 years ago? All the people were saying he is going to be injured, not make it, not going to be healthy at one point, his game is too brutal. But he found a way and he’s had another incredible season with two Grand Slam wins this year.
He’s at 19 Grand Slams now. I really enjoyed sharing the court with him at Laver Cup twice.
I learned a lot from him, he is a great champion, is great for the game and I’m happy we’ve had the matches and battles that we had, particularly at Wimbledon, French Open, even in Australia.
We’ve had some massive matches and he’s going to go down as maybe the greatest players of all time, he’s that good of course.
