In that context, the Swiss legend said, “We have played against each other for a long time. Respect not only each other, but our families, the coaching staff—everyone. We have a very friendly relationship off the field. If there is a chance to play together, that would be great. I don’t know if we can play together. But it will definitely make for a very special moment.” Fans will finally get to see their favorite duo Rafa-Roger perform magic together on the tennis court.
