Bogdan was questioned whether he’s friends with Nole and to expand on his relationship with the tennis player. The Atlanta Hawks player stated, “Yeah, I can say friends or even a little bit more than friends. He’s such an inspiration.
The way he handles everything, you know. His mindset was always to be the greatest of all time. He wasn’t like okay I’m going to win one Grand Slam. When he didn’t even win a Grand Slam, he was still chasing the greatest, he was not chasing a Grand Slam”.
