Federer Says Novak Is The Best

a friend of mine translated it


FEDERER: NOVAK IS THE BEST
Zurich
Generous as always, the world's best tennis player Roger Federer has agreed to speak for "Vecernje Novosti" after giving interview to Austrian "Blik". After bad start of the season due to mononucleosis and big successes of Novak Djokovic, the unsurmountable leader of the ATP list is aware that he will have to invest maximum effort to defend his no.1 spot.
- I know that Novak wants my throne and for now he is on his best way, but I am still not for „old iron“. I’ll fight despite illness that is bothering me in my quest to stay at the throne as long as possible – Federer says exclusively for „Novosti“ – I am surprised just how much Djokovic has gotten serious on court. He is playing phenomenally; and that he is at the moment the best in the world, is indicated with big tournaments, where he en-route beat Nadal at Montreal and Indian Wells, an myself at Montreal and Melbourne –
Federer thinks that Serbian ace has considerable chances at being the next no.1 on ATP list.
- Djokovic has all the become my successor, but I also have ambitions to remain no. 1, and as many other tennis players who also wont my spot. In any case, I sincerely congratulate Novak on his successes, and am eagerly looking forward are next meeting so I could get my revenge (he said „revanš“, which is not revenge but something bit more of sporting meaning, don’t know exactly how to translate)
- I am also proud of „our“ Ana who is a Basel representative, as myself. I congratulate her on success at Indian Wells i and wish her to claim to no.1 WTA after Wimbledon where she belongs. My Mirka is a big fan of Ana, and she follows all of her matches with great interest – says Federer
- You know, we from Basel are big fans of all whose surnames end with „ic“. At the football club, there are always seven-eight players form your lands and they have brought us many titles. Personally, I’m a big fan of football and I like watching Serbians Ergic, Kuzmanovic and Perovic as Croats Petric and Smiljanic and others

its nice to be important, but its important to be nice

Re: Federer Says Novak Is The Best

I must say I'm very doubtful about this.I've heard about that, but what confuses me is that it's the only newspaper where you can find this kind of Fed's statements, it isn't the first time.Looks like to me that journalist who writes from Zurich is just making up this kind of things all the time.

Re: Federer Says Novak Is The Best

Just ignore it and keep hating him, who cares?
Everyone needs a villain, right?

Re: Federer Says Novak Is The Best

No matter if it'd been Roger or anyone else spinning it the truth is that Nole is the main man at the moment.

He's won AO and IW, the most important events this year. It doesn't take much to work out who is the player to beat.

If he defends Miami or goes close he's still in the box seat to be the number 1 by the end of the year.

You don't have an idea to which extent I appreciate Roger, I've said it already, the guy who is hard to outpass.The other thing is that I don't like his dominance.

I don't appreciate that magazine you are talking about and that journalist.I think he's making things up.C'mon, "I’m a big fan of football and I like watching Serbians Ergic, Kuzmanovic and Perovic as Croats Petric and Smiljanic and others" !We, Serbians don't love those guys much, why would Fed care for them and know their names?!

Novak, on the contrary, said he didn't want to think of himself as the best at the moment, because it causes the pressure.

Federer was training football before he switched to tennis. He loves football and supports his hometown club - what is so strange about that?

edit: those guys he named are/were playing in Basel.

Federer is known as huge football fan and especially of FC Basel. FC Basel is indeed full of serbians and croats for many years now. Everyone knows the names of the players of "his" club.
I wonder why you "don't love those guys much"?

Re: Federer Says Novak Is The Best

Plus he always said he followed his hometown club closely and attends their games every time he gets a chance.
There is a great chance he knows all these guys personally as well. Since he knows people who know people, you know. =))

a totally irrelevant list of players I like, hate and want to have a beer with, all written in cute colors
