This Laver Cup edition offered so many interesting points. Probably something that the fans really enjoyed was seeing Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer coaching their team.
Roger and Rafa used to “chase” their teammates before their matches in the tunnel giving their precious advice.
One of the most incredible footage was Federer and Nadal doing their pep talk to Sascha Zverev before his decisive single against Milos Raonic.
Roger was quite vocal to say:
“I want a let’s go and a come on for every fucking point you win. I don’t want to see any negative shit.”
Rafa added: “No matter what, no negative face.”
This is just gold, isn’t it?
Still striking how… normal Federer sounds here. pic.twitter.com/1K5n3MMiRZ
