ATP, Laver Cup > Federer on his rivalry with Nadal: “Going through a career like the one we had and finally being able to have a nice relationship, I think that’s a big message, not only for tennis, but also for sport and maybe even beyond”

During his press conference organized this Wednesday at the O2 Arena in London, the venue for the fifth edition of the Laver Cup which will begin this Friday, September 23, Roger Federer could not escape the famous question about the identity of his doubles partner. And it is clear that the Maestro really wants it to be Rafael Nadal, the biggest rival of his career and also one of his best friends on the circuit.

“Of course. Definitely. I mean, I think it could be, I don’t know, a unique situation, you know, that if that were to happen, in the time that we’ve been fighting together, always having this respect for each other, families, our coaching teams, we’ve always gotten on really well. For us too, going through a career like the one we’ve had and finally being able to have a nice relationship, I think that’s certainly a great message not just for tennis but also for the sport and maybe even beyond that, which is why I think it would be great.”
