Roger Federer: I will miss seeing Rafael Nadal at the French Open

Unfortunately for tennis fans, Rafael Nadal will not play at this year's French Open. Injuries, which have been a huge problem for the Spaniard lately, are the reason why we won't be watching him this time either. Rafael Nadal has a 'brutal' record at the French Open.

He won this competition 14 times. Roger Federer lost every time he met this tennis player, 6 times to be exact. The now-retired Swiss tennis player expressed his sadness on Twitter over the fact that we won't be seeing Nadal at this year's French Open.

Yes I will miss seeing him play,” -Roger Federer wrote on Twitter
“French Open + Rafael Nadal = one of the most incredible records in history of all sports”.

Roger Federer and his retirement

Roger Federer seems to be enjoying his well-deserved retirement.

There are many things that he misses, but it seems that there are more that he wished were over. He only realized this when he finished his career. Federer enjoys being with his wife and children. Deserved, it must be admitted.

“Feeling great nowadays. What I miss most: having a spontaneous dinner out on tour with friends after a match or practice and of course the big stadiums, fans and the thrill of it all.
There was a lot of little stuff that I didn't know was creating so much stress that just dropped away, which is really cool.
Like a weight being lifted off my shoulders”.

The Swiss emphasized that there is a chance to return, at least for exhibition matches. It is certain that he misses the matches, trophies, and all that he is used to. However, everyone's career has to come to an end. “I'd love to play exhibitions in the future and if so, coming to South America again would be amazing,” he said.
