For Diego Armando Maradona, Roger Federer is the greatest tennis player ever, and we don't figure it out today. But what the former Argentinean football star wrote on his official Facebook page commenting on the recent Roger's Indian Wells title, is pretty interesting.
'My friend Roger Federer, the "tennis father", is back to make history in Indian Wells. Congratulations to the greatest one, else is not'. It's not the first time Maradona praised Federer. In an interview last year, 'Pibe de Oro' said that the Swiss player was the number one in the list of greatest players of all time, but admitted at the same time that Djokovic was a phenomenon.
Also Dominic Thiem recently commented on Federer's successful comeback, and said: 'The Race is fired up, he has a very good chance to become World No. 1, I hope for him and I think it's possible for sure.'
