A great game was played this Friday, perhaps one of the best in history, because Novak Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal in the semifinals of Roland Garros, in a passionate duel, which was for the Serbian after four sets.
After the match, the Serbian spoke and praised the conditions of his rival, Rafa, who is the best player in the history of the French major, with 13 titles in Paris.
“Without a doubt it was the best game I have played in all my history at Roland Garros. And of the three best games I have played in my entire career considering the level of tennis, playing against my greatest rival ever on the court in the who has had the most success in his life after 15 years. And we must add the electric atmosphere supporting the two players. Simply amazing, “said the world number 1 at the start.
Later, Djokovic pointed out that what he did on French clay was one of the greatest achievements of his career.
“Rafa has been the most dominant tennis player in history at Roland Garros, words are running out to define his achievements here. He has now lost three times in his entire career. And he has been playing here for almost 20 years,” he explained.
“Beating Rafa was like climbing Everest, that’s the feeling you always have when you go out on the track against him, of climbing Everest to beat him. I had won the previous 8 times that we had played in the Philippe Chatrier. I tried to take certain things from our 2015 to be able to implement them tonight and it worked, “he replied.
