Roger Federer: 'Rafael Nadal is the ideal guy for young people'

If Roger Federer was a kid while Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic were playing tennis, who would the Swiss have cheered for? In a recent press conference, the Swiss player said: 'For sure Rafa.

He is exciting, energetic, the ideal guy for young guys. I appreciate both of them a lot, they play an unbelievably physical tennis, they are younger than me but I feel better physically than how I was doing at 20 years. I keep what I have.

I would definitely like to have those powerful serves, you launch the ball and the point is ended, like Karlovic or Isner, or maybe Edberg's volley because I always loved volleying players.' Meanwhile, the Rolex Shanghai Masters Tournament Director Michael Luevano confirmed Federer's commitment to Shanghai: 'As long as he is playing, he is going to play in Shanghai.

He will put it in his calendar. We have a friendship, he has his co-partnerships, Uniqlo is one of the largest commercial partners in Asia and I would not be surprised to see him many times in Japan in the future. He was in Tokyo prior to Shanghai.

I know he loves Japan, Asia and Shanghai obviously. We are blessed to have the world's greatest tennis player.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
