While Federer is yet to pin down a doubles partner, fans have been hoping that he would play one final match alongside long-time rival and friend Rafael Nadal, and the man himself would also love to play alongside the Spaniard. “Of course. No doubt,” he smiled.
“I think it could be quite a unique situation that if it were to happen that for as long as we battled together, having always respect for one another, families, coaching teams, we always got along really well and for us as well to go through the career that we’ve both had to come out the other side and have a nice relationship.”
Admitting that his friendship with Nadal could be a lesson for those in other sports, he added: “It could be a special moment.”
