Roger Federer thinks THIS about Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic – Greg Rusedski
Federer lifted the 101st ATP trophy of his career this evening by beating John Isner in the Miami Open final.
It will provide the perfect confidence boost for the Swiss star as he gears up for a return to the clay season.
Federer has not competed at the French Open since 2015 and all the while Nadal has taken his Roland Garros title haul up to 11.
But that means Federer will head to Paris without any pressure, according to Rusedski.
“He doesn’t think he’s going to win the French Open, lets be honest,” Rusedski told Amazon Prime.
“He thinks it is going to be Rafa, Novak or some of the other guys who are going to win Paris.
“Last time he got stuck when he went out early at Indian Wells and Miami.
“He didn’t want to make that mistake twice.”
Federer sits No 4 in the world rankings but has ruled out attempting to challenge Djokovic for the top spot.
And Rusedski thinks he is right to do so – but has urged the 37-year-old to not consider retiring any time soon.
“He is No 4 in the world right now and does not care about being No 1,” Rusedski added.
“But he is still continuously winning.
“He is the only player to win two titles this year.
“At 37 years of age, as long as he can keep playing, please keep doing it.”
Federer will return to action at the Madrid Masters ahead of the French Open.
