Roger Federer lost Wimbledon final because of bad luck - Nadal's uncle

Toni Nadal praised Roger Federer. Rafael's uncle said: "He still plays at an unbelievable level at 38 years of age so he has more time left. You always think 38 years is a lot but he was one point away from winning the Wimbledon final.

It was bad luck. Wimbledon is the tournament where he has most chances to win, this year he had the chance." On what Federer's career would have been if Rafael was not there, Toni said: "Roger would have won some more French Opens because he lost five or six finals."

Asked if Novak Djokovic was the most unbeatable player in 2011 he ever saw, Toni replied: "I think Rafael in 2010 and 2008 was unbeatable on clay too. But Djokovic in 2011 was really tough. He lost the first match at the French Open against Federer."

On Serena Williams's last four Grand Slam finals losses, Toni added: "She was a bit unlucky. She felt too much pressure." He finally criticized tennis: "ATP should sometimes think about some changes in order to see more show.

The world evolves. In football (soccer), a lot of things changed. The three points per win, goalkeeper's position. In tennis, you have to ask yourself what show you would like to give. You could change balls, I do not know, and in tennis instead, nothing changed. Net has the same height despite players are taller."
