John McEnroe: 'Roger Federer will retire soon if he continues to have injuries’- View: 17119 by Lorenzo Ciotti
John McEnroe, after talking about Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic also expressed his thoughts on Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
According to the former world no. 1, the latter stages of the careers of the Swiss and the Spaniard will depend mainly on their fitness. "I think Federer will retire soon if he continues to have injuries," said the American to Marca.
Talking about Rafael Nadal and if he saw him win another Major, McEnroe said, "Yes, he can do it if he's healthy. For me, they are (Rafa and Roger) the best tennis players of all time, we will see what Novak Djokovic will do, and who can match the 17 Slams of Federer, but he will have to challenge with Murray." Then mentioning the Scot anf if he saw him dominating in the near future, McEnroe said Djokovic would be his biggest obstacle.
“In the last two years he (Djokovic) played at a level that Murray was not able to support and this made him frustrated. Things have changed in the past two months, although the constancy that Novak had was something that we had never seen before."
