Tennis is an individual sport, and to excel at the highest level, players must possess an oversized ego. This can sometimes affect the relationships between champions. For over a decade, tennis enthusiasts have witnessed the rivalry between three of the greatest players of all time. Roger Federer was the first to reach the pinnacle of the sport, captivating spectators with his polished game and extraordinary shots. Soon after, Rafael Nadal emerged as a true prodigy, dominating the clay courts for more than ten years.

My history against him is not very good

Following these two tennis titans, Novak Djokovic entered the scene. Despite arriving later, the Serbian has become the most successful player in Grand Slam tournaments. On Monday, October 30, 2023, Djokovic appeared as a guest on the show “C à vous” on France 5. Journalist Patrick Cohen took the opportunity to inquire about Djokovic’s relationship with Rafael Nadal, with whom he has clashed on multiple occasions. “It’s the biggest challenge to win against Rafa at Roland Garros, in his home. My history against him is not very good. But overall, I have played many magnificent and historic matches against him throughout my career. He is a very, very special player for me, for my entire career, and for my development as a player,” Djokovic shared.
