Roger Federer: My rivalry with Rafael Nadal is great
Roger Federer has praised fierce rival Rafael Nadal's on court commitment. The 17-time Grand Slam champion called the Spaniard a 'great player' and described his rivalry with him as 'classic'.

As the tennis world continues to moan Rafael Nadal’s absence from tour, rival and World No.2 Roger Federer has come out in praise of the Spaniard calling him a ‘great player’ who is ‘always competitive’.

The World No.2 seemed to be in the mood to talk about his rival. He compared his rivalry with the Spanish No.1 and wished Rafa good luck, hoping for his early return to action.

 “It’s a great rivalry that fascinated many people and that has been followed closely over these years. If I have to compare it to the ones of the past, I’d say that we are similar to Sampras and Agassi, rather than McEnroe against Borg or Connors. Rafa is recovering from physical problems and I hope he comes back as soon as possible. Tennis is a sport marked by challenges, and I hope that in the next years we will have a great rivalry again."

Nadal has missed all events following his loss to Lukas Rosol at Wimbledon in June. The Spaniard has only recently begun training.
