Nadal stated that Federer was a great partner and a good friend for a few years. Because of the difficult circumstances, he didn’t get to play in front all of you.
“He told me of the sadness and great disappointment that this caused. Sincerely, I tell you that I’m confident that I will be able to play a game with him in the future.
Nadal, 36, admitted at the weekend that Federer’s retirement from the ATP Tour had impacted a part of his life. The 36-year old said that Federer was someone he admired and who he had fought with. He also shared many wonderful things off the court.
“In that sense all those moments, those emotions you have before playing in a Grand Slam final, or any important tournament, everything that was there before those matches, that’s what it means. It was unlike other matches. It was hard to believe that you won’t be able to experience this again. He has also taken a piece of my heart with him. It was also the sadness of saying goodbye to someone so important to our sport.
After winning the Australian Open and French Open trophies, Nadal won two of his 22 titles this year. He will also be trying to win the 23rd major in Australia this year.
