Quote:
Sitting next to his agent Carlos Costa, Rafa was watching and supporting Roger in some of his matches at the Miami Masters applauding again and again the no more surprising play of his friend. Rafa is quoted: “For me it's fun to watch him play. I love this sport and to me it seems very nice seeing him return to the courts. He has worked so hard and if we ever meet again, I'm ready to lose against him, nothing will change between the two of us”

A volunteer in Miami says:

"They sometimes leave together, sign some autographs and get in their cars, not without saying goodbye with a strong hug. They are very cute, very nice!´ says Hernandez. ´I am responsible for delivering the cars to everyone. But sometimes they get in the car of the other one and drive away together, talking. You notice the good vibes that exist between the two of them. But that's not all; in some matches of Rafa, Robert, Roger's father, has been seen cheering for him" affirms Hernandez.

Repeated calls, constant meals and mutual congratulations are some of the characteristics between the Swiss and the Spanish, who certainly didn´t overlook the birth of Federer´s twins (Charlene Riva and Myla Rose), who received a gift coming from Mallorca with a card signed with the personal “Rafa”, in July of last year.
Rafa's dad was also seen in Miami cheering for Roger and their families exchange Christmas cards

Thanks for that Nat! A present for the twins? Now where did I get that idea from, not that long ago?

That's awesome, didn't know that their friendship was that deep. It's one of the greatest rivalries in the sport, with no doubt.

I guess when it comes to a rivalry, being heralded as one of the greatest in sports ever, to the point where you, Player #1, will always see your name connected with Player #2, who happens to be RIVAL #1 - there´s merely two ways to go from there - either you´ll despise that other guy forever, or, Alternative #1, you'll manage to appreciate that fellow as only adding to your legacy, and develop some kind of a respecting, friendly relationship.

It's bloody obvious which of the two extremes Federer and Nadal have chosen to follow by now - if you're not a hater of either of the two, it's clear to see for anyone.
These fellows like and respect each other, and rightly so.

This is Navratilova/Evert all over again, rather than Connors/McEnroe and/or Sampras/Agassi, as became mighty obvious lately.

And I love it.

And for this particular case, I guess 'the deck was decided right from the start'. (I'm a semi-pro bridge player )



May it continue... soon!!!

Usha thank you soooooooooo much

Quote:
Nadal has the same desire, the same drive. He is Gene Kelly to Federer’s Fred Astaire: the hard work is there to see in the energy, the muscle, and the sweat. But listen to Ginger Rogers describe the training regime of her famous partner and decide whether Astaire was any less driven than the more overtly athletic Kelly.

Nadal is like an energetic young brother emulating a high-achieving older sibling, blessed with the same work ethic, the same desire, but with different tools.
Quote:
Nadal, though, has sat alongside chairman Federer on the Players’ Council. He’s worked at his English in order to become more confident in interviews. He comes to watch the older man play his matches.

They have set new standards in tennis PR, in media responsibilities, and in breaking down the barriers between the cash-paying fans and the players.

Ambassadors par excellence.

Bottom line, they are both serial winners who have together taken the game to new levels. They have even introduced new shots to the game: Rafa’s lasso forehand, Roger’s reverse cross-court slice, lifted verbatim from the squash court.

So the rivalry is not so much a stick with which to beat each other up but rather a measuring stick.

This Fedal thing is weird. I'm not a big fan of either guy, but I just don't see this imagined relationship. They're pros who are friendly with eachother, that's it.

The Rafa/Fed fan rivalry doesn't exist because Rafa and Fed are the two current dominating players. It exists bc they're totally opposite in terms of game, personality, looks, demeanor, etc. Fairly easy to see how if someone likes Rafa they wouldn't like Fed or vice versa. The only thing they have in common is they both win a lot. Perfect for people who like vicarious glory, you simply can't lose.

What does the beautiful rivalry with Federer teach you?

"For me it´s important to have someone so strong and talented in front of me. Roger is a much more complete tennis player than I am: to beat him I had to improve, to raise the bar of my tennis, to bring out the best of me. He helps me to do so."

Is it true that you often write messages to each other?

"I have his number, we know each other since many years, we get in touch for congratulations, greetings, compliments. It´s a cordial, respectful relationship. When he won Paris in 2009, I wrote him: I really was happy for him because he deserved it."

I don't have anything against Rafa or Federer but I must say I hate this "friendly" rivalry thing. Why? Because it's damn boring.

Bring back Connors vs McEnroe, at least those guys made things interesting off the court!
