The FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique spoke about Roger Federer not playing the Davis Cup finals in Madrid. The Spaniard, who is involved in the tournament organization, said: "Federer was the only player reluctant to play this new Davis Cup.
He has the Laver Cup too and, whatever you say, there is bound to be some competition. It is not easy. We are there working and I think that in the end, we will understand each other. At the tennis level, what am I going to say? He is the best in history."
David Ferrer said: "If it's safe that Roger won one Grand Slam title more than Rafa, and it makes many people consider him as the greatest player of all time then in the end it's the results that mark the rankings in the sport, I am confident that Nadal can reach him soon and be the best."
In an interview, commentator Gigi Salmon spoke about Andy Murray's attempt to be back at the highest level on tour. Salmon said: “At that point, a lot of us thought that was the end of Andy Murray. We’re still not sure where he can get to, the fact that he is here at this stage, playing this type of tennis is remarkable.
He didn’t know if he would recover from this hip surgery, he didn’t know his movement would be. It’s incredible what Andy Murray is doing and the fact that he’s still playing here at this level”.
