Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have truly impressed the tennis fans (and beyond) after reaching the Australian Open final.
Why there is more to come from Federer and Nadal.
Boris Becker was one of those mesmerized by the two champions, and he thinks that much more will come from them.
The German recently commented
"Before the start of the Australian Open, everyone had been asking where do they go? After the tournament, they have shown that they go to the very top. They showed some real drive. The way Federer played in Melbourne, it goes on to show that there is more to come and that is true for Nadal also.
Winning 18 Grand Slams is huge. Who does that? But Federer made it look so easy and effortless. His elegance and classy way of achieving it is something that not many sportspersons will be able to replicate in future.
A few months back the question was when will Novak equal and cross Federer's Grand Slam record, but now suddenly the question has changed to whether he can do it. I feel both Rafael and Novak may catch Federer, but even he is going on. The more he wins, the more he will want to play."
Nadal has recently declined to play in Rotterdam to have a better recovery after Melbourne while Federer will play the tournament in Dubai at the end of the month.
