Roger Federer: 'I may be a bit closer to Rafael Nadal than Novak Djokovic'

In an interview, Roger Federer spoke about his relationship with Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. They have won 55 Grand Slam titles combined and they are still the favorites heading into the 2020 season. Federer said: "It's quite special at the same time that the three of us are doing what we are doing.

We are all writing history in our own ways, we all three could not be happier with our careers, we just had an interview together for an English TV. It was the first time that all of the three of us had a joint interview and it was interesting to see how we all react to the questions, we know each other quite well but to give an answer in front of the other person was new and unusual for us.

They are incredible players. I may be a bit closer to Rafa than Novak, but at the same time, I played Novak more than Rafa. The rivalry has been fantastic and I hope there will be more to come. The matches against Rafa this year in the French Open and Wimbledon were terrific and against Novak, I had a great match at Wimbledon of course and also at the World Tour Finals in London last week.

So hopefully there is more to come." Federer also spoke about how his love story with his wife Mirka started. They met in the 2000 Sydney Olympics when the Basel native was just 18 years old and they still love each other a lot.
