There is too much hate between Roger Federer and Nadal fans - Corretja

The former world No. 2 Alex Corretja gave an interesting perspective on the legacy of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The Spaniard said: "I see on social media a challenge between Nadal and Federer fans, that if one of the two loses, they are happy.

You have to enjoy both guys. You have to be Nadal and Federer fans, even if you like one more than the other." On the 2008 Davis Cup final won by Spain over Argentina in Mar del Plata, Corretja added: "The days before the event started I went to Feliciano Lopez's home, he was focused and confidence.

In the same day I saw David Nalbandian, very relaxed considering the pressure of playing a final. I think the absence of Rafa Nadal made the Spain united and made the Argentina get confident. It was an unexpected title for Spain.

And in 2016 I was happy for Argentina's win in Croatia." On Friday November 22 Bogota will host an exhibition match between the German Alexander Zverev and the Swiss Roger Federer. They will be teammates for Team Europe at the Laver Cup and they already faced each other multiple times on the Tour.

Zverev recently reached an agreement with Tony Godsick, who has been working with Federer since 2006, to be his agent. Federer will play exhibitions in Colombia, Argentina, Chile and México. It will be the second time that he visits the country after 2012.

The Wimbledon winners Juan Sebastián Cabal and Robert Farah plus the US Open junior winner María Camila Osorio will play an exhibition match that will also feature Bob and Mike Bryan.
