Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic have different personalities,games -Becker

The six-time Major winner Boris Becker commented on Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic Wimbledon final. The German former player said: "I think both players strive to win most here. I think Wimbledon is the one where both really want to win and when they do, that’s why they call it a great year.

I don’t think there’s much love lost between them. Nadal and Federer there’s more – I think Novak and Roger they couldn’t be more different personalities and different playing styles, that adds to the atmosphere and the fact they’ve played here in ’14 and ’15 in the final – huge finals with each other so they know each other very well but not much love lost."

Martina Navratilova added: "They play such tense matches and in tennis you can only hit as good a shot as your opponent makes you hit. You can’t hit a great shot unless you’re forced into it. These two will be pushing each other, finding spots on the court that we don’t really find otherwise.

You know you have to play your best to beat the best and that’s fun, that kind of pressure is fun. An extra edge that can keep you going and make you play that little bit longer because you want more but once you get into that position it’s like, “Oh my goodness! Can I do it?” So yes, history can get in the way. It can motivate you but it can get in the way as well."
