Historic Moment - Federer and Nadal become doubles partners

To play against Querrey and Sock tonight - historic moment of tennis right here to have 19-time GS champ teaming up with 16-time GS champ

Two best forehands of all-time. Fed's serve plus Rafa's passing shots - both incredible at the net. will they flop like Nadal/Djokovic, or become the best doubles team of all time?

They will move this to exho forum I am sorry Mods did the same with other threads including mine. We are not allowed to have any WWW or match result thread since it is considered exho, only that general LC thread is allowed.

Nothing historical here. Noone will remember this by the end of the year. Hopefully the Murricans embarrass them.

Hey Andrej don't be a holdout! You'll probably never see this in your life again. We are so fortunate to see the two goats play together in our lifetime - something to tell the grandchildren when we all become old!

And you honestly call yourself a RAFA fan??? You're not a RAFA fan, you're a FEDERER hater!!! You should be ashamed of yourself for saying something of such horrifying nature!!!

A lot of symbolism this weekend. In addition to an arguably historic (honoring tennis history, at the very least) Laver cup, yesterday Federer celebrated 20 years on tour. Now this. Such a nice treat for the fans. (I am sorry, tards! )

I obviously don't think they'll become the best doubles team ever. They both are very rusty when it comes to doubles. But just as Nadal shrugged off his rust yesterday, I am sure Federer will too. So it's going to be interesting, no doubt. Also... perhaps we'll get a peek at what they will be doing in 3-4-5 years? Who knows?! A man can dream!

Um...about that.



I don't know how. I have permissions to move threads out of general messages and into other forums but I don't have rights to move from those threads out of those forums back to GM or elsewhere .

Re: Historic Moment - Federer and Nadal become doubles partners

Both are good doubles players with an excellent understanding of the game, touch, volley skills and passing shots. I think they can play together in the future. Of course, for Federer's ego it will be too much to play with Nadal when he is losing year-end #1 to him, but next year it's possible.

Re: Historic Moment - Federer and Nadal become doubles partners

OK, now.

Can all Federer and Nadal fans stop their wars just for one day? Let's just get united for one single day and celebrate this historic moment, Faulks.

Federer - Thiem - Wawrinka - Dimitrov - Shapovalov
