How to Watch Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal

  • Rafael Nadal of Spain celebrates after beating Karen Khachanov of Russia in the quarter finals of the BNP Paribas Open

The pair have 37 men's Grand Slam title wins between them, 17 for Nadal and 20 for Federer - the latter being a record in the sport - and have contested one of the most enthralling on court rivalries ever seen, often on the biggest stages and sharing mammoth reigns as world number one. "But it always brings extra energy into the stadium and for the both of us". "The way he came up was very clay-court based, and I was apparently very grass-court based, and we both found our ways also on the other surface", Federer said.

Federer trails Nadal in their head-to-head series, 23-15, but he's won their last five meetings and that adds a nice twist to the tale.

"I will try my best to recover - these are the matches I want to play", the 32-year-old said, BBC Sport reported.

Nadal took a medical time-out after the third game of the second set to have tape applied under his right knee and looked in serious discomfort before battling to a 7-6 (2) 7-6 (2) victory, saving a set point to avoid being pushed to a decider.

NDP MP Tracey Ramsey added she thought Liberals were hiding behind parliamentary procedures because they had "something to hide". None of the Liberals who are full voting members of the committee responded Tuesday to queries from The Canadian Press.


However, Federer and Nadal got to this appointment in a completely different state. He didn't play again until the Australian Open, where he fell in the championship match to Novak Djokovic.

Rafael Nadal faces Karen Khachanov later for the chance to play Federer for the 39th time in their storied careers.

"Nobody can guarantee anything about what can happen the next day, but of course my goal is to be ready for tomorrow".
