nadal quotes

“One day I have to come back to Prague, with Rafa maybe, and his family and my family. We’ll walk around and we’ll go to all the bars and playgrounds with our kids in the future, and we’ll have a good time one day here in Prague again. This time it’s more about tennis.”

- Roger Federer, undoing all the good work Rafa had done in denying that they are a couple. | X


“No way I would be a journalist. You guys have tried to kill Roger often. But he’s always come back and proved you wrong. So one thing I  would not do is make the mistake of saying Roger is dead.“ - Rafael Nadal

"I’ve done and lived the most with him. From five-set matches on court, to promoting a tournament in Qatar, to doing foundation work together. And I’ve gone to dinners with him. I know his family the best, as well. I know his mum, dad and sister. Yeah, our bond goes further back than the one I have with Novak or Andy. And for that reason I feel closest and most connected to Rafa.” - Roger Federer


I want to say thank you so much to the laver cup and these two legends. Thank you for teaching us what a great rivalry is like, thank you for always being honest and respectful. What a sport it is to have these two great friends as its biggest rivalry.
As a long time tennis fan, I have dreamed of this moment ever since I was a kid in front of the tv at 2 am in the morning watching the Wimbledon final of 2008.
I can tell you I have not regretted anything,

for every second of it was worth the wait.
