FEDERER: NOVAK IS THE BEST
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
