Rafael Nadal: Roger Federer is not like Messi and I am not Ronaldo!

Rafael Nadal: Roger Federer is not like Messi and I am not Ronaldo!

It is not possible to compare the skills of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to soccer greats Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

That is the view of world number one Nadal, who has given some in-depth interviews to the Spanish media ahead of the Christmas period to reflect on 2019.

Nadal/Ronaldo and Federer/Messi

Nadal was asked if he agreed with the notion, he would be the equivalent of Ronaldo in soccer, while Federer would be Messi.

While the 33-year-old did not entertain the idea, you can at least see why people would make the connection.

Not only are Messi and Ronaldo two greats of their sport and long-time rivals for success in the same way as Federer and Nadal have been over the years, but they’re also are some individual stylistic similarities in the eyes of many observers.

Barcelona forward Messi is a naturally gifted talent looking to enhance his legacy over his final years, much in the same way as Federer.

Juventus star Ronaldo, along with Nadal, is defying age to maximize every ounce of production from his body, with both men possessing incredible mental strength and passion.

Nadal about Stardom

However, the Spaniard, who is on his best form in a decade, does not feel you can compare stars from different sports, as he explained in an interview with Marca.

“No comparison is possible,” said Rafael Nadal.

Should Rafael Nadal be concerned about the Australian Open ‘Draw?’

It was at last year’s Australian Open when he made it to the final with Novak Djokovic and experienced a loss. He admitted that the Rafael Nadal magic will not always produce a victory.

Rafael Nadal had said after his 2019 Australian Open final loss to the Serbian. This past season alone the Spaniard has captured two grand slams: the French and the U.S. Open besides from the ATP Finals, the Italian Open and the Rogers Cup.

Should Rafael Nadal be concerned about the Australian Open ‘Draw?’

He’s had his injuries as well as his happy personal times of getting married. The draw may be Rafael Nadal’s least concern.

On the ’60 minutes’ segment with Jon Wertheim he says that he looks at doubt as being powerful and helpful to keeping his mindset intact to get wins.

Strong mental stability:

He believes in the strong mental stability to stay grounded and be victorious. It’s not only the opponent that dictates the result but the actions of both players’ performances.

Being modest Nadal knows that it’s not only the mental qualities but strategic ones that have helped to name him as the ‘King of Clay.’

It was his performance at the Davis Cup that most had no problem naming him nearly the ‘King of it all’ He’d won all 8 games necessary and with the Spanish team pushing all its gears resulted in being the winner.

Should Rafael Nadal be concerned about the Australian Open ‘Draw?’

Nadal played the last hand to capture the victory when he defeated Denis Shapovalov to seal the deal and win the title for Spain against Canada. Rafael Nadal has seen a time when the draw was tough and he’s won as was the ATP Finals a few months ago.

He played opposite Daniil Medvedev and after three hard-fought sets, the Spaniard came out the winner. It was even in the same tournament playing opposite Alexander Zverev and he lost.

He takes nothing for granted even going into this Australian Open, which has been compromised by its smoke infiltration due to Bushfire burnings.

Nadal is passing the idea of being anxious over a draw. Jon Wertheim says it perfectly on the ’60 Minutes’ segment as Nadal having a ‘stubborn refusal to surrender.’

Spaniard:

The Spaniard looks at defeat as a reason to be more determined to win and he admits it saying “I think over my career I’ve been happier with my victories than I have been upset over my defeats.”

Should Rafael Nadal be concerned about the Australian Open ‘Draw?’

Nadal’s first opponent at this year’s Australian Open is Hugo Dellien from Bolivia. It will be their first meeting and surely Dellien will have the ‘butterflies’ when he enters the court playing Nadal.

There really isn’t any opponent Nadal must face in the draw that will cause anxiety and apprehension for the Spaniard. It just will continue to give him that much more fight and determination to play a gritty game and come out the winner.

Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic’s rivalry defined the decade and it has been a joy to watch

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have been the two excellent players of the 2010s and look unstoppable as we approach 2020.

It is a credit to their astounding longevity that Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Roger Federer started the decade as the top three and they will end it in the same position. In some sports, constant dominance from one team or individual can become boring and cause fans to lose interest.

Big Three

However, that cannot be said of tennis, especially with the power the Big Three have held in the men’s game.

Federer started the decade on top but unsurprisingly at the age of 38 has dropped to third by the end of 2019.

As Federer’s form has fluctuated through the years, Nadal and Djokovic have been models of consistency with only injuries slowing them down.

They have taken tennis to a completely different level, with their exploits defying belief at times.

In 2010, Nadal won three consecutive majors to surpass Federer as the best player in the world and complete the Golden Slam by capturing a maiden US Open.

Moreover, although doubters have questioned his hard court credentials over the years, he has gone on to win three more titles in New York.

However, what sets Nadal apart is his performances on clay, where he owns an astonishing 92 per cent win-loss record.

Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic

The challenge of beating Nadal on clay is the most difficult in all of the sports with ’The King of Clay’ boasting 12 titles at the French Open, 11 in Monte-Carlo and Barcelona and nine trophies in Rome.

He also became the first male player to win the French Open and the US Open in the same year on four occasions (2010, 2013, 2017, and 2019).

Moreover, he ends this decade with 19 Grand Slams to his name, over $119million in prize money and back on top of the world rankings for the fifth time in his career.

‘Old school work ethic’ pays off for immaculate Federer

Roger Federer has never lost in the first round at the Australian Open since his debut 20 years ago, and the Swiss great kept his incredible record intact Monday, attributing “old school work ethic” for his Melbourne Park success.

The 38-year-old swatted aside Steve Johnson 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 to race into the second round, kick-starting his bid for a 21st Grand Slam title in immaculate style.

Federer said ahead of the tournament that he had low expectations at the year’s opening Grand Slam after missing the warm-up ATP Cup to spend more time with his family. It left him short of match practice, but it didn’t show on Rod Laver Arena against the American.

Roger Federer:

“I think for me really the first three rounds are key to get going, to get used to the pressure, stay calm when to save breakpoint or 30-all points or whatever it may be,” he said.

“This is sort of the unknown that can be a little bit scary at times.

“But today there was none of that because I broke early each set and was able to get on a roll, play freely after that.”

The crowd favourite knew he needed to get out of the blocks fast against the world number 75 and that’s what he did, racing to a 4-1 lead in the opening set before a 10-minute interruption for the roof to be shut due to rain.

Federer returned and wrapped up the set in just 27 minutes.

Johnson, known for his big forehand and slice backhand, again gave away service breaks early in the next two sets and there was no way back against a man who delivered some jaw-dropping returns and forehands.

He will next play either French qualifier Quentin Halys or Serbian Filip Krajinovic, admitting “I have to be careful”.

“Round-by-round, point-for-point mentality. I know other guys that are playing extremely well right now so I think it’s just important to stay very calm about things.”

Learning from mistakes:

Seeded three, Federer is gunning for not only a 21st Slam title but his seventh in Australia, having most recently tasted success at Melbourne Park in 2018.

His earliest exit in Australia since 2000 has been the third round, and the Swiss star said hard work was key to his longevity.

“At the end of the day, old-school work ethic, there is nothing wrong with that,” he said.

“I do believe if you’re in a slump, not feeling well, whatever it may be, knowing how to train hard, when to train hard, with whom to train hard, there is nothing wrong when it goes to those things.

“And learning from your mistakes is key, as we remember our losses more than our wins. It’s just important that when you do lose, you know, you really make the most of it because it’s actually an opportunity.”

Despite his age, Federer remains a competitive force and won four singles titles last year.

But he failed to add another Grand Slam with his closest call coming in the Wimbledon final, where he lost a five-set epic to Novak Djokovic.

In contrast to his 2019 Major drought, Djokovic and Rafael Nadal won two apiece, with the Spaniard moving within one Slam title of Federer’s record 20.

Jannik Sinner: 'I had great practice match with Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer'

Jannik Sinner: ‘I had great practice match with Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer’

In 11 months, Jannik Sinner has passed a long way from outside the top-500 into the top-80, establishing himself as one of the youngsters to beat on the Tour at the age of 18. Super talented Italian became the youngest player since Richard Gasquet with three Challenger titles last year, reaching his first ATP semi-final and lifting the Next Gen trophy in Milan in November.

The first two Next Gen champions Hyeon Chung and Stefanos Tsitsipas would reach the semi-final of the Australian Open next January but Sinner doesn’t have such expectations, reminding he is younger than both and that he still needs a couple of years to reach that level.

Match with Federer and Nadal

After two early losses at the beginning of the season, Jannik came to Melbourne where he had a chance to work with Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Alexander Zverev and other players from the top, shaping up his game ahead of the first-round clash with a qualifier Max Purcell on Tuesday.

After a breakthrough season, Jannik is aware of how tough it is going to be to repeat and improve that in 2020, although he seems ready to give his best in every match and learn from every defeat enroot to the place in the top-20, possessing incredible ball-striking abilities and the spirit of a true champion.

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Hyeon Chung have done a great job here, especially the beginning of the season. It can give you a little bit of confidence, winning this tournament or playing better at the end of the season.

Seniority of Federer and Nadal

Sinner said. “I don’t know if this year is going to be the momentum or maybe two or three years after, as I think I still need more time; after two weeks in Melbourne, we will know everything.

My season did not start, as I wanted; I have not been able to play as many matches as I wished to before Melbourne and that makes things difficult. Still, I think we practised well, with strong offseason; I feel great on the court, better and better with each day.

Of course, it is a little bit different when you play matches but I think I can reach the desired form; I had practice runs with Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Alexander Zverev. This year is not going to be so easy for me.

I think the focus is always on trying to give your best on the court, on improving your game day after day; that’s our main goal.”

Federer about charity

“We needed another player for that charity match and Rafael was the one who came through my mind,” Federer said. “I called him and he was thrilled about it. We needed some time to find the right date, as it is always tricky in situations like this but I think it is going to be very special. It should be crazy, the two of us coming to Cape Town, with all my contacts there and his will to help my foundation and compete in front of the South African fans.”
