Does friendship exist in tennis between rivals? Andre Agassi gave an interesting answer to Marca a few days ago in Paris speaking about Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, who became teammates at the Laver Cup last year.
´I don´t exactly know the relationship between them but it´s clear that I don´t imagine being friend of someone with who you fight every day to be the best. I think that the word that definited my relationship with (Pete) Sampras was respect.
Rafa and Roger are our best ambassadors, for sure´, Agassi said. Then he also revealed something interesting: ´I don´t have any photo of mine at home as tennis player or any of my trophies either.
My trophies are in the gym where I trained for so many years and I don´t know where Steffi (Graf, his wife)´s are. Both me and Steffi were great tennis competitors but now we aren´t. It´s not that we want to forget this era but what we did at the time doesn´t make any difference with our current life.´ ALSO READ: Roger Federer´s French Open record Rafael Nadal won´t probably beat
