Here are his words: "Novak Djokovic? I have nothing personal against him, but he is really unpleasant.
In the last two years he hasn't got one right, I am referring in particular to his statements." Completely different words instead for Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal: "Roger is and will always be tennis. Nadal? I enjoy watching his matches and above all I admire him from a human point of view." The former Italian champion, winner of Roland Garros in 1976, continued: "I don't like today's tennis, I would say that it bores me.
I only follow him for Italian tennis players, let's say for patriotism." And speaking of Matteo Berrettini and Jannik Sinner, Panatta has no favorites:" Who is stronger? Both are very strong and modern athletes, I must say that they are very different from each other." Currently both Sinner and Berrettini are stopped: the first is at rest after recent physical problems and is working in view of the next tournaments while Berrettini has recently received information and is stopped due to injury.
