“The truth is that I have never been friends with either Federer or Nadal, between rivals it is almost impossible to be. I have always had respect for someone like Roger and I consider him one of the greatest players of all time. He has had an extraordinary impact, but I have never been close to him,” the Serb thus began about his Swiss colleague.

“The same thing applies to Rafa. We went to dinner together a couple of times, but even with him friendship was impossible. I always admired and esteemed him. Thanks to them I became the player I am now and this will unite us forever,” added a categorical Novak Djokovic.
