- ‘No. 1 forever!’ – Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer not on Rafael Nadal’s level, says Ion Tiriac | Eurosport
“Rafael Nadal is the best of all. Neither Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer are on his level,” said Tiriac, as reported by Eurosport Spain.
“In the match against Djokovic, Nadal played very, very well. Beating Djokovic, world No. 1, in that way… No, Nadal is going to be No. 1 in the world forever. You can’t compare him. Neither with Federer, for me.”
“You will never see, not even in your life nor in the life of your children, someone winning a Grand Slam tournament 14 times. Or 15. Because I’m sure he’s going to try next year.”
Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal have joined the roster of players for next week’s Giorgio Armani Tennis Classic. The exhibition event is set to return to The Hurlingham Club from June 21-26th.
The superstar champions join the tournament’s strong line-up, which includes Carlos Alcaraz, Casper Ruud, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Lleyton Hewitt, Xavier Malisse, Mansour Bahrami, Greg Rusedski, Radek Stepanek, Tommy Haas, Marcos Baghdatis, Laura Robson and Daniela Hantuchová.

“Even when I’m commentating now and watching, when I see Nadal get to net today, quite often I’ll say it, I consider him the best volleyer in our game today,” Woodforde added. “His technique is not always the prettiest but he’s always volleying into the open court. I hit a ton of low volleys and a ton of half volleys. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this guy hit a half volley, he’s always just in the right place.”
