Rafa says Federer is the best player in "The History"

Interview of him in tennis channel, he is such a cool and down to earth guy, they asked him how he felt about being #2 for so long and he basicaly said it was ok cos the guy infront of him was the best of all time.

He was very, very cool and nice and humble in this interview, Novak should learn something from this guy.

Anyway. most of you Rafa fans dislike Roger and don't see him as the GOAT. my question is. if Rafa himself admits Roger is the best ever, do you agree with Rafa because of your love for him and his delicious muscles? or do you betray his trust and keep on bashing Federer when Rafa himself has enourmous respect for him. (and Roger for Rafa of course, he kinda has to with the beatings he's recieved at Rafa's hands)

Re: Rafa says Federer is the best player in "The History"

That's not the first time he said so, and it won't be the last. As you said, a very cool, nice and humble guy, and for me that's the main reason to love him.

It's not just Djoko that should take a page from his book.

Re: Rafa says Federer is the best player in "The History"

rafa is always humble, classy and gracious even when he lost, just that some people was blind by his/her hatress to say that he is a hypocrite, but in fact he really meant what he said

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Re: Rafa says Federer is the best player in "The History"

Well, that is obvious. Federer is the best player in history, so far.
He will be history soon.

What?

Nole made the same statement about Federer, and he said that Nadal is the best defensive player in history.

But you had to put him in this thread too...

Even if Novak wins 57 slams, lots of experts will still think Roger's the greatest, game-wise

Re: Rafa says Federer is the best player in "The History"

I'm a Nadal supporter and I haven't rooted for Federer to win a match in five years. This doesn't change the fact that I think Roger Federer is far and away the greatest tennis player ever. I don't have any problem with Nadal praising Federer because Nadal will never have Almagro-itis--he'll come out swinging every match.

Djokovic shouldn't take a page from Rafa's book--Djokovic should just be Djokovic. Not all tennis players have to make nice.

Re: Rafa says Federer is the best player in "The History"

Well, he is right. Federer is the best player in history, tennis wise.

Maybe not yet in achievements, but if you purely look at the tennis he is the greatest ever.

Australian Open - 2004, 2006, 2007, 2010
Roland Garros - 2009
Wimbledon - 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2012
US Open - 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008

I'm sure Djokovic will beg to differ.

They do? Maybe some of those fans say so in jest?

Well, I obviously can't speak for them all but I certainly have huge respect for Roger.

Vice versa; it's not because Roger quite clearly respects and likes Rafa that his fans all respect Rafa, right? It's not because you like a certain player that you have to adopt his taste in everything.
