The Serbian had won the match 6-1, 6-2 in less than an hour and it’s his 9th winning out of his 10 matches with Nadal.

Both of them can give their audiences high-quality tennis, without seeing them withdrawing from the match.

In February 2021, Roger Federer made his first appearance during the Qatar Open 2021 after suffering from a back injury. The Swiss tennis legend had been undergoing a series of surgeries that’s why he has been missing a lot of tournaments. The three-time Qatar Open Champion shared in the interview that he wanted to celebrate victories again, and he wanted to make his comeback at smaller tournaments, where there’s a little stress and pressure in it.
