Reigning world number one and defending champion Novak Djokovic has a difference opinion with the six-time former winner and current world number three Roger Federer about the roof at Wimbledon.
The Swiss Maestro thinks that roof should be kept opened as long as it is possible, as Wimbledon is an outdoor event and it has its own charm.
Talking to the media people, the 16-time Grand Slam champion stated, “I was happy they kept it open because it is an outdoor tournament. We don’t want to play indoors all the time. It’s not that big of a deal coming on and off.”
Rain completely disturbed play at the All England Club on Monday, as most of the matches on the outside courts were postponed till next day.
On the other hand, Djokovic has become a fan of closed roof as he said, “It’s all good. It’s good for me to finish and to have a day of practice and get ready for next challenge. I played only the first match outdoors, and then all the three next ones were under the closed roof.”
Djokovic and Federer are just one match away from locking horns in a dream semi-final once again, as the Serbian takes on Germany’s Florian Mayer and Federer meets Mikhail Youzhny of Russia in the quarter-finals on Wednesday.
