Roger Federer (41, Switzerland) has competed on the court for a long time, Rafael Nadal (37, Spain, world No. 14) and Novak Djokovic (36, Serbia, world No. 1)토토사이트 sent a message of encouragement.

Federer was asked about the injured Nadal and Djokovic during an interview with British media Sky Sports on the 8th (Korean time). “It (the French Open without Nadal) is brutal. Without Rafa [Nadal’s nickname] would be tough for tennis,” he said.

Nadal has won the French Open 14 times. He, who is the most champion ever in this event, also left behind the achievement of winning 22 major tournaments with Djokovic.

Last year, Nadal conquered the Australian Open and the French Open. However, from the second half, he drew a downward curve due to a chronic foot injury and abdominal rupture. He went to his first Grand Slam tournament of the year, the Australian Open, but was knocked out in the second round. Since then, he has been unable to compete due to a hip injury.

It is also unclear when Nadal will return. On the 6th, he announced his absence from the Rome Masters, which opens on the 10th, on his SNS, saying, “I announce that I will not be able to play in Rome. I am very sorry.”

Recently, Nadal announced his absence from the Madrid Open, which ended on the 8th. Afterwards, he focused on rehabilitation, but as he withdrew from the Rome Masters, his participation in the French Open, which will be held at the end of this month, became uncertain.

Djokovic also withdrew from the Madrid Open due to a right elbow injury. However, he was named on the roster for the Rome Masters and is believed to be making a comeback.

“I want him to come back to the Rome Masters,” Federer encouraged.

Federer, who dominated an era, left the achievement of being the world’s oldest and number one for 237 consecutive weeks. He left the familiar court after the Laver Cup doubles match in September last year.
