Indian tennis player Ankita Raina described the two tennis legends, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, in quite an interesting and fun way. Speaking with The Times of India, Ankita said: 'Favourite Nadal, Federer GOD.'
Commenting on her career in general, Ankita added: 'Indeed, Wimbledon is and has been one of the dreams. More than me it has been my mom’s dream that one day I would play at Wimbledon and someday in the future win that Slam.
The grass is my favourite surface so I was very excited. I have always played singles and doubles both in every tournament that I played. So it is very normal for me. I focus on both. I work for both the games. Of course, singles is a priority but I give my 100% to doubles as well.
If you look at my titles as well, I do have quite a few in doubles too. Playing doubles definitely helps in terms of like if you are out in the singles event then you are still alive in the tournament. You have a feeling that you are still working and it keeps you in that match zone,” said Ankita who believes that playing doubles always adds to a player's game and experience.'
In an interview, former world No. 4 Tim Henman commented on Kyle Edmund's chances to crack the top 10 rankings and potentially win a Grand Slam. Henman recognized that triumphing in the Majors will be tough. "It’s hard.
He’s been to a semi-final, you would say that there’s still a large number of people ahead of him," said Henman. "You’d obviously put Federer, Djokovic, Nadal ahead of him, you’d put [Alexander] Zverev ahead of him.
Out of the other players, Cilic has won a slam, Del Potro has won a slam. Can he be as good as them? I think so. But that’s what he has to find out. You don’t know, I don’t know, he doesn’t know. He’s just got to keep doing what he’s doing.
With him, he’s got a good team around him, he’s always improving. I think we can expect more of that next year."
