Belinda Bencic doesn't envy Roger Federer too much. Bencic believes that the 38-year-old Basel native has a too-busy life. "He is so relaxed and he has everything under control all the time. He always tried to say hi to everyone and be nice to everyone.
I am upbeat when two people want something from myself at the same time (laughter). But Roger probably had to learn it. He is used to it now. At the age of 22 years, he could not do it well. But I would not want to live in the way he has to", said Bencic.
Federer spoke about the 15-year-old Cori Gauff: "I mean, I know her a little bit. It’s not like we’re going on vacation. She’s very cool, very cute. I think she played great. I watched the entire match against Venus Williams in Wimbledon.
I was having treatment. Perfect, so I could watch it all. I think it was an amazing situation, to play somebody 23 or 24 years older. That stuff doesn’t happen every day." Nicolas Almagro praised the Big Three: "I could play against Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Juan Martin del Potro. David Ferrer was amazing. We had the McEnroes in the past, but that era was amazing for tennis."
