Speaking with his sponsor Credit Suisse in an interview on Wednesday, Roger Federer shared his thoughts on Rafael Nadal’s amazing achievement of winning 21 Grand Slam singles titles.
The match took too long, and I’ve got too many children so I couldn’t watch every point, but I tuned in for the very end and it was nice to see the emotions. It gets you all emotional to see such an incredible hardfought victory…
He has told me for many months now that he wasn’t feeling so well with his body and now he’s all of a sudden holding up the Australian Open trophy.
And dreams come true, and I think that was a great example with Rafa. He is a great role model. I think tennis writes incredible stories.
I’m the first guy to be happy for anybody who breaks any record, because I know how hard it is to do.
