Re: Does Federer like Del Potro better than Djokovic or Nadal?

Many players like Del Potro who is a shy and nice guy in personal life, Nadal is also often liked, with Djokovic there are more mixed feelings among players. Besides, in Fed's personal case, it has been talked a lot about how their story started, the DC 2006 and the accusations of Djokovic faking against Wawrinka ...

Del Potro has always been very nice when talking about Roger, Roger felt bad for him after his loss in the French open semi in 2009, I can witness that I saw Fed's interview on court just after the match and he looked very genuinely moved by the big young boy's tears.

Then there was Del Po's injury and Del Po said that Fed send him a lot of messages and asked his infos, he was surprised about that and appreciated it.

For the anecdote last week a journalist asked Del Po if Swiss guys had called him in the street or just lfet him quiet in the street like the "good Swiss" they are, and Del Po answered : only one called me, it was Roger in his car while I was crossing a bridge

useless old guy

Wrong. Fed can't stand birdshit even when he spanks his arse badly.

Re: Does Federer like Del Potro better than Djokovic or Nadal?

Fed never really liked Nadull, it was all stupid marketing done by Nike. The last year is a better reflection of how both really feel about each other. Respect, but I don't think they truly like each other. With Del Po it's different. Roger genuinely likes the kid. He's a nice guy.

We all know he isn't the biggest fan of the Djokovic camp and if he likes Nadal better than Delpo then he got bad taste. Roger has pretty good taste it seems.

So answer is YES

Re: Does Federer like Del Potro better than Djokovic or Nadal?

Federer likes nadal but they are not friend, not even close, they have nothing in common.

Fed don't like nole at all but he likes the rest esp Jmdp.


I think no one likes birdy at all

Re: Does Federer like Del Potro better than Djokovic or Nadal?

Federer likes his fanboys like Delpo, Haas, Goffin...those who are a real threat to him and are able to see through his fake modesty don't like him e.g. Djokovic, Nadal, Berdych, etc. I think Murray now also belongs to the second group.

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Dimitrov - Chardy - Berdych

Federer is a sore loser, if he gets beat by del Potro as often as Nadal and Djokovic i bet you he would not like him anymore.

More like nobody dislikes him. From what I have seen, it seems impossible that anyone ever would dislike the guy. But I don't necessarily like him tbh, I find him too... blah.

Federer likes the only two guys who have a positive H2H against him in slam finals : Del Po and Nadal.

And he often practises with Simon who is a torture for his game.

But the first truth is that, as many people said : Del Po is a guy who is universally appreciated by players, as Tsonga and Nadal (in a lesser extent for the latter) are ... and contrary to Berdych and Söderling for instance.

As for Murray being hated by Federer ? I think you haven't understood everything Fed has said about Murray in his carreer, the topic is much more complicated, Fed has always appreciated Murray a lot actually (contrary to Djokovic), he has just thought he doesn't use his talent the way Fed would like him to do, in an offensive way (and more importantly Murray is a touchy guy ... however less so than some of his fans like MuzzaLovah )

useless old guy

in the past he has thrown a few shades at murray, but he seems to like him more these days for some reason, there's a been a noticeably change in tone from him towards murray after the wimbledon final, he's been saying things like 'murray will win a slam', and after the olympic final he looked quite surprisingly relaxed and happy for murray in his post-match interview even though he lost to him, and then after the us open he said how murray should aim for no.1, etc.
