'Djokovic should embrace that he is bad guy compared to Nadal, Federer'

Speaking on Amazon Prime the seven-time Grand Slam winner John McEnroe commented on Novak Djokovic's legacy in tennis era compared to Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. McEnroe admitted Djokovic is less popular than the Swiss and the Spaniard.

“I think he should embrace the sort of ‘he’s the bad guy’ compared to them", said McEnroe. "Instead of being like ’why don’t I get the respect?’ These guys are beloved figures and deservedly so.

He’s certainly very highly respected. He’s got to figure out a way to not compare himself as much in terms of popularity. Like when he won Wimbledon. It was one of the great matches, goes to a fifth-set breaker and it didn’t even look like he was happy.

It was like ‘screw all of you, I beat him anyway’." On Federer's difficult start to the tournament, Greg Rusedski said: “Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic would have look at that match. Two matches in a row he drops the first set, he looks a little flat.

They’re thinking, ‘hey, I’m a little bit better than this guy Dzumhur. I’m going to make him play a lot more balls’. Meanwhile Sandra Gago spoke about her marriage with Feliciano Lopez: "Ten days have gone by and I am really happy.

I came back to the routines. At home, which is better than any other place. The truth is that that day is so intimate, so personal, that you disconnect from everything and you focus on enjoying with your husband, friends and family."

Asked if they will become parents, Sandra replied: "Both of us are very little but not. In the end, we live day by day. It's obviously something we think about in the future. But not in the short term."
