Roger Federer chooses Rafael Nadal over Novak Djokovic 

Federer was not hesitant this time as he stuck by the World No.1 and long-term rival Nadal. Nadal could thank Federer in a way as the World No.3 Swiss defeated World No.2 Novak Djokovic at the ATP Finals this year to ensure that the Spaniard ended the 2019 season as the No.1 even if he didn't win the tournament. Taking to a leading Mexican TV channel, Federer said that it is interesting to pick one tennis star as they both have entirely different careers. However, he chose Nadal for his incredible performance at the French Open and being World No.1 right now.

However, he was slightly diplomatic in adding that Djokovic has more weeks at the top spot and that he may have more years on tour left as compared to Nadal. The 20-time Grand Slam winner signed off by saying that Nadal is his pick at this moment and there is still plenty to play for as it will be interesting to see where all the three end up eventually.
