The legendary Swiss was worried about the possible absence of his great Spanish rival at Roland-Garros.
Spectator of Miami Grand Prix, Roger Federer has, on Sky Sports in comments reported by Reuters, answered the question that is burning the lips of the tennis world, will Rafael Nadal be there at Roland-Garros (May 28-June 11). “It would be cruel, it would be difficult for tennis if Rafa is not there. I still hope so, I saw that he retired from Roma, so I wish him the best. It’s obvious that Novak (Djokovic) hasn’t played a lot, so hopefully he’ll be strong and all the youngsters who will arrive will be too.”added Federer, who retired from tennis last September.
Rafael Nadal, who has been suffering from the aftermath of a left leg injury since the Australian Open, was forced to give up the clay court tournaments in Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid and Rome. The Spaniard, fourteen times winner in Paris has participated in Roland-Garros every year since he won in Paris, in 2005, the first of his 22 major titles, a record for men.
