Roger Federer expressed that he will miss seeing Rafael Nadal play in the 2023 French Open.
The Swiss former tennis player shared one of the greatest rivalries in the history of sports with the Spanish player. They faced each other 40 times, with the 22-time Grand Slam champion leading 24-16 overall and 6-0 at Roland Garros.
During a Twitter Q&A session, a fan asked Federer if he would miss seeing Nadal at the French Open, to which he affirmed that he will miss seeing Nadal, who holds one of the greatest records in tennis history, winning the tournament 14 times.
“Yes I will miss seeing him play. French Open + @RafaelNadal = one of the most incredible records in history of all sports," wrote Federer.
Later, the Swiss player recalled the match he played against his rival at Roland Garros in 2008, where Nadal emerged victorious with a score of 6-1, 6-3, 6-0.
