Toni Nadal says emotional words after Roger Federer’s retirement
Toni Nadal praised Roger Federer for being so polite during his 24 years old on the courts, and never asking the crowd to support him and show respect and love for his opponents.
“Federer has also been a role model. I think they have never seen him, not just direct rudeness towards the player who disputed the points with him on the track, not even egotistical attitudes or cocky faces can be blamed on him after his most brilliant points,”
“Roger Federer has never asked for the applause of the public with gestures nor has he demanded that they cheer him after a masterful point. His celebrations, whether following a big exchange or following a major title win, have always been understated and elegant,”
“The void left by this unrepeatable athlete is, without a doubt, very large, but his legacy is even greater. When one leaves an activity forever, one cannot have greater satisfaction than seeing the mark it leaves behind. That of Roger Federer, without a doubt, will be indelible,”
What pushed Toni Nadal to respect Roger Federer?
What pushed Toni Nadal to respect Roger Federer exactly is how He acted during the ATP London 2011 when Roger Federer defeated Nadal in a big match with a score of 6-3 / 6-0 in less than an hour.
“Only three years later, in 2011, Roger had the opportunity to reciprocate with manifest consideration,” Toni said. “It was in the impressive O2 in London, during the Master’s Cup, when after getting rid of Rafael in a short hour with a convincing 6-3 and 6-0, he threw the last ball that Rafael sent out to the public. With totally atypical behavior for a player who has just won such an important match, he lowered his head and did not raise his eyes from the ground until he ran into his defeated rival at the net to shake hands and give a warm pat on the chest.” Toni Nadal said
