There are 64 altogether: 22 for Serbian, 22 for Spanish, 20 for Swiss. For retirement from tennis, the latter wanted the two players alongside him, in the Laver Cup last September. However, this does not mean that they are all friends.

Djokovic, in an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, talked about the rivalry with the Swiss and the Spaniard. He explained: “I’ve never been friends with Federer and Nadal, between rivals it’s not possible.

I’ve always had respect for Federer, he’s one of the greatest of all time. He’s had an extraordinary impact, but I’ve never been close to he. Same with Nadal. We went to dinner together twice, but even with him friendship is impossible.

Novak on Federer and NadalThe question about Novak Djokovic’s two greatest rivals started from a premise: whether it was Roger Federer who asked the Serbian to stop imitating him.

Among the best known of him, there was the one made against Rafael Nadal, after the final of the 2009 Italian Open. “Lea Pericoli asked me on that occasion. I did it because Rafa won. If I had won, I never would have done it. If I had imitated him after beating him, Rafa would have killed me,” continued the tennis player from Belgrade.

Speaking of the Big Three, Djokovic chooses the two matches of his life: “The Wimbledon final in 2019: the audience screamed Roger-Roger and inside me the cry became Novak-Novak. The other is the Australian Open final in 2012 against Nadal, a physical battle that lasted six hours.”
