Nadal won’t sound like Federer’s ‘boyfriend’

By Associated Press September 6 at 6:31 PM

Rafael Nadal knew he would have to talk about Roger Federer the player.

But this is no time to talk about Roger Federer the man.

So when Nadal was asked during his press conference what he admired most about Federer off the court, he had to draw a line.

“I don’t want to look like I’m going to be his boyfriend, no?” Nadal said to laughter. “We don’t want to talk these kind of things before (an) important match.”

The longtime rivals would meet for the first time at the U.S. Open if Federer won his quarterfinal match later Wednesday against 2009 champion Juan Martin del Potro.

Nadal did go on to praise Federer as a great ambassador for tennis with good values, adding they’ve always had a good relationship. ... f6f9e5b0b4
