Toni Nadal: ‘Djokovic Is Harder To Play Than Federer’

Toni Nadal, Rafael Nadal’s uncle, admits Roger Federer is the best tennis history but thinks Novak Djokovic is harder to play.

Toni Nadal: ‘Djokovic is harder to play than Federer’

“I think Federer is the best player in history, along with another person I have yet to identify,” Toni Nadal told Eurosport on May 18. “That person could be Rod Laver or Rafael Nadal, he’s not far from Federer. Right now, Federer is the best. But for us, Djokovic is harder to play. When Nadal meets Federer, we have a way to beat.” Before we play, we know what to do. But when we play against Djokovic, many times we don’t know exactly what we have to do. Therefore, we prefer to play with Federer. “

Mr. Toni Nadal led his grandson from a young age. He stopped coaching Rafael Nadal in late 2017. Currently, Nadal is working with coach Carlos Moya. Nadal won 26 matches and lost 29 matches against Novak Djokovic. But when faced with Roger Federer, “Clay King” excels with 24 wins and 16 losses

“To me, Federer is a great player,” added Toni Nadal. “I would love to see Federer play. If I’m not Nadal’s uncle or coach, I would expect Federer to win every match. I like the elegance but equally the efficiency of Federer.”

“The greatest tennis player” is the controversial topic of contemporary tennis. In terms of Grand Slam numbers, Federer is leading with 20 titles. But the “Express Train” is 38 years old and doesn’t have many opportunities to increase the number of Grand Slams. Nadal, 34, and Djokovic, 33, are closely following Federer with 19 and 17 Grand Slam, respectively.

Federer and Nadal opposed Djokovic

Djokovic, as Chairman of the ATP Tennis Players Council, proposed creating an alliance among the major players to help tennis improve during the difficult times.

“At times we have signed the agreement of 80 of the top 100 players,” Vasek Pospisil, a member of the ATP Tennis Council, told TSN on May 7. “12 people in the top 20 also agree. But when we approached Federer and Nadal, they refused. In fact, they wanted to talk to the organizers of the Grand Slam tournaments. That went against what we had. Trying to do it. To be honest, I’m very disappointed. “

In the letter, Djokovic mentioned that players in the top 100 will raise money to support lower-ranking colleagues. The amount of support is based on the rank of the contributor so that the total fund can reach one million USD. According to ATP’s announcement a few days ago, the Men’s and Women’s Professional Tennis Association as well as the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and the Grand Slam tournaments raised $ 6 million to support 800 low-level players.

Djokovic, Nadal, and Federer had previously publicly called for fundraising in hopes of helping their colleagues. There is no information on how much of the “Big 3” money raised is among the $ 6 million, but Pospisil’s share shows that consensus among the parties is not the highest.
