It’s cool playing the Semis of the World Tour Finals. I would prefer to face Nadal in the Final, even if I have no preference. The rivalries, they are unique in many ways. The more I play Novak, the more special it becomes. But with Rafa I go back further. We were the new guys and the face of the tour for so long. The fact is obviously the epic Wimbledon finals. Then we had all these matches for me which were hard, the French Open finals. But they were very important for my career as well to win the French Open in 2009. This Rivalry is extra special
