London, Jul 3 : Reigning Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal fears that he will never take Roger Federer’s place as the most successful player in the history of men’s tennis.
Nadal will take his total of Grand Slam titles to 11 today if he beats Novak Djokovic and retains his Centre Court crown, still five behind Swiss star Federer’s record for winning the game’s major prizes.
Nadal said: “The career of Roger is probably impossible to repeat – and I believe the number he has is not going to stop where it is. He will have more chances to win more.”
“It’s going to be strange if within three or four years one player wins more than him, and he’s the best ever. Probably that’s not gonna happen,” The Mirror quoted him, as saying
Nadal will start as bookies’ favourite today even though Djokovic has just taken over from him as world No. 1 and has beaten him in four finals already this year. (ANI)
