“Well, considering the fact that every time we played in last probably six, seven encounters, it was always a long matches, physically very demanding, going three sets and five sets in Grand Slams,” the defending champions said.
“So I guess we have to expect something similar to happen, long rallies, and I’m ready for that.”
“Well, I think it’s special because we are the same age. There’s only a week difference between us. We know each other since we were 11, 12 years old. I guess that adds something very special to our rivalry.”
“As we developed, of course we improved our games, we improved as athletes, as people, and it’s nice, you know, to see somebody that you grew up with doing so well.
“And then of course, being your top rival in our generation is doing really well not just in tennis but in all sports in general. (Lionel) Messi is ’87, (Sebastian) Vettel is ’87. It’s quite a good year to be born.”
