Rafael Nadal And Roger Federer

Rafael Nadal is currently in Buenos Aires, where he started his Latin American tour with Casper Ruud. Recently, Rafa was asked to comment about who is his biggest rival. The Spanish sensation conceded that even if he played more times with Novak Djokovic, he considers Roger Federer as his biggest rival.

“Even if it’s true that I have played more times against Djokovic, when you have a rival like Federer and you start playing against him, it is different. Because we have different game styles and personalities. We shared so many moments together on and off the court. I admired him so much. He is such an important personality for the sport. When he retired, a part of my life has left with him”, said Nadal.
