The former world No. 21 singles player Michael Llodra had a short training session with Roger Federer in Wimbledon on Thursday ahead of Swiss player's semifinals match against Rafael Nadal. Speaking to Le Matin, the Frenchman said: "Their longevity really impresses me.
I love seeing them at this level at their age. We are all so happy. I was honored to comment their French Open semifinals, thinking it could have been probably their last match against each other. And they are here again. I make my son, who plays tennis, look at Roger.
His footwork, it seems he walks on eggs. Roger is a good friend, we grew up together. Well, at some point he was faster than me (laughter). It's so nice, crazy. He is very experienced on this surface, he knows it best. On grass, I think he has more chances to win.
But Rafa has been strong since the beginning of the tournament, for me it's 50-50." Meanwhile Nadal spoke about Paul Pogba possibly moving from Manchester United to Real Madrid: "My answer is I always have been confidence with my team.
Sometimes things are not going that well, like last year. With Pogba, Pogba is a great player. Sometimes the money is crazy, so I don't want something that I believe is exaggerate in terms of money. That's all."
