Novak Djokovic: ´There Have Been Times When Me, Nadal and Federer Wouldn´t Talk to Each Other´- View: 17867 by Ivan Pasquariello
In an exclusive interview had with the Serbian TV show "20 Minutes", Novak Djokovic talked about himself and his new life to come, when he will both be a dad and a professional tennis player.
The World No.1 revealed unheard insights of his life on the tour. One of the most interesting topics for tennis fans is the relationship between the top 3 players of the world. Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, have they always been friends? "I got very close to Rafa, especially over the last year, when we played exhibition matches on a tour in South America.
Talking about Federer, we do respect each other a lot. I can't say he is my friend, because we are not that close, but I can't even say he is just somebody I know, an acquaintance. I would say he is right in the middle of those.
I am on the verge of becoming a dad and he has been a father many years before me, thus at Wimbledon we had a chance to talk about that and he gave me useful advice" revealed Novak. A rivalry like theirs - which on the court has been going on over more than a decade - hasn't always had good moments.
As many would expect, there were times when the relationship between these three stars have been tense. Novak confirmed. "We went through moments when things would go nice and smooth, without problems, but there have also been times when the first wouldn't talk to the second, or the second to the third and vice versa.
