Roger Federer praises Nadal and talk about their race to hold most Grand Slam titles

Roger Federer praises Nadal and talk about their race to hold most Grand Slam titles

Roger Federer was asked how he keeps his love for the game central. The Basel native said: “Yeah, good question. I’m not sure. I feel like it almost is just there or it’s not. But of course, you want to make tennis fun.

You want to have a good team around yourself that can motivate you when you’re feeling down. You want to practice with the right guys and spend your life with the ones you enjoy yourself with, you know. And maybe for me it’s the balance between playing some but not overplaying so I don’t burn out.
I don’t know.

I always love playing tennis and it’s always been there for me.” Federer was also asked if he talks with Nadal about their race to hold most Grand Slam titles: “That’s all we have been talking about. (Laughter.) No, we haven’t spoken about it.

I don’t know. Maybe behind our backs they have been talking about it. I’m not sure. No, I mean, this is not stuff you really talk about. I think I’m generally happy for Rafa for winning in New York and winning all the other ones that he has and all the Frenches he’s won.

I don’t know. It’s just a massive respect I have for Rafa, what he’s done, and Bjorn, what he’s done at the Grand Slam level. Djokovic, Sampras, you name it. These are things you can’t really control other than when you face each other you try to stop the other guy, but that’s also not the point.

The point is try to win for yourself and your fans, your team and everything, and try to have your best career. No, we have not been — I don’t feel like it’s an elephant in the room. We have not been talking about it, but Rafa maybe has a complete different answer. I’m not sure (smiling).”

Recently Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal (he had to skip the Sunday’s action due to an injury) were there to lead the Team Europe towards another title against the valiant rivals Team World, with Alexander Zverev prevailing against Milos Raonic in the 12th and the deciding encounter, just like he did a year ago versus Kevin Anderson.

Roger Federer and Jack Sock were the only players with victories at all three days, gathering six points each to leave John Isner and Alexander Zverev behind them and battle for the MVP title that should go to the Swiss in the end, scoring more singles wins than Jack and delivering that pivotal triumph that allowed Zverev to even play a competitive match.
