Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal may be having immense respect for each other, but the two of the greatest tennis players of all time are apparently not the best of the friends.

“With Federer I have a fantastic relationship, but I would not say I’m his friend. Friendship is something else,” Nadal said of his bond with Federer, as quoted by bolamarela.pt.

And how would Federer’s retirement affect his career? “We have to analyze our careers coldly. If he retires before me, my life will not change.

“The only objective and main satisfaction must be to overcome ourselves.”

Notably, a few days back, Federer had claimed he shared a special bond with Nadal due to their off-court camaraderie.

“We’re good friends off the court, because we have shared special moments away from it,” he said.

“Perhaps, because of charity games for his foundation and his matches for my foundation.”

Meanwhile, Federer is currently in Halle, Germany, to compete at the Gerry Weber Open. Nadal, on the other hand, is expected to return straight at Wimbledon.
