Todd Woodbridge: 'Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal transcend every sport'

Australian tennis legend Todd Woodbridge has dropped a major praise on tennis superstars Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Woodbridge, 46, insists that the young players have a great example in Federer and Nadal of "how to behave off court and how to sell your sport." Both Federer and Nadal have always represented the game in nothing but exceptional manner.

The two have set a high standard when it comes to the hard work, commitment and dedication to the game. Off the court, the heavily popular duo has stayed away from incidents and any type of negative stuff and actions. "Roger and Rafa transcend every sport.

They are the ones every other athlete in the world looks up to in terms of how to brand themselves, how to behave, how to do everything the right way," Woodbridge wrote on Tenismash. A couple of heavily talented players have emerged as the potential successors of Federer and Nadal.

Australia's Nick Kyrgios, 22, and 20-year-old Alexander Zverev lead that list as they are expected to bid for the Grand Slam titles and No. 1 spot in the near future. Also read: Tomas Berdych not ready to call it a career .
