David Ferrer reflected on his journey in professional tennis. The Spanish player said: "I feel very proud of my career. In the Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal era, being the world No. 3, playing the ATP Finals for seven years, being a top ten guy for eight or nine years.
It's a very consistent career." On Nadal and Djokovic, Ferrer added: "I knew that my tennis was very consistent and regular and with them I had always played well, if they had a bad day I could make them feel uncomfortable.
Luckily I could sometimes take advantage of it. I always tried to improve, evolve on my tennis, and i was doing it because that was my priority and I enjoyed it. I was always very strict, sometimes too much, especially in the end of my career.
Maybe some of the things I regret... Well, I do not regret, but you sometimes look with perspective and you think, Here I could have been calmer and i could have done better." In an interview to Tennis World USA the Marseille Open chief Jean-Francois Caujolle spoke about the relationship between Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
Caujolle said: "Federer and Nadal have a lot of respect each other every time they speak together, they are very good friends. But I am not sure if it's the same with Novak Djokovic, who is younger and came on the Tour later.
That's my feeling. Tennis is like a family: you may not like your cousin too much but there is always some kind of respect."
