The organizer Jose Antonio Fernandez was impressed by Roger Federer's humanity on Saturday when the Swiss held a press conference, attended kid's clinic and played an exhibition match with Alexander Zverev in Mexico City.
"He is the most educated guy, very professional, very sensitive. Just perfect. He knows what he is and he is smiley with every single fan in every single activity he does. He had such a positive attitude, which surprised me", said Fernandez.
Reflecting furthermore on Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, he added: "They are all different and unbelievable at the same time. I also had the opportunity to work with Rafa and he is an excellent guy as well as his team members.
They are very simple, professional, in every way. That's why they have been at the top for such a long time." On the Los Cabos event, Fernandez said: "We may have one top ten player, definitely top 20 and 30s.
We are starting to work with agents, it will be tough but not all the players are competing in the Olympics." On the criticism around Federer and Alexander Zverev not playing Davis Cup Finals in Madrid, Fernandez concluded: "Davis Cup has a new format, it's no longer home and far away.
You used to play on hard or clay over three days at the best of five sets. That's just business. You need to respect players who think Davis Cup is not delivering the best product."
