Roger Federer has his first public words on Rafael Nadal’s 14th Roland-Garros and 22th Grand Slam tournament, after he sent a private message to congratulate our champion.
I didn’t watch the final, I watched the quarter-final against Djokovic a bit before I went to sleep.
In general, it’s just unbelievable what Rafa has achieved. The record of Pete Sampras, which I beat, was 14 Grand Slam titles. Now Rafa won the French Open 14 times. That’s unbelievable.
I was happy for him that he did it again. Hats off to Rafa. After the tenth, eleventh time, I already thought: This can’t be. He keeps raising the bar. It’s gigantic.Roger Federer
