Novak Djokovic shares a beautiful message for Rafael Nadal

Novak Djokovic is in Paris, hunting for the 23rd Grand Slam title. Rafael Nadal in Barcelona, giving updates on the surgery he has undergone, with the announcement that he will not return to the circuit for five months. Two different moments, after twenty years of touring I share from the two former world number ones.

The Serbian spoke again to speak of the Spanish tennis player. Nole shared this beautiful message to Rafa: "Well, yes. It was his birthday and he announced he had surgery. I've had elbow surgery in my career and I know how hard it is to go back.

It's just one of those things you don't want any athlete to experience. Sometimes I think it's necessary. For him it has been several times during his career. I don't know what the seriousness or nature of his physical problem is, but if he opted for the operation it means that there was no other solution.

I really hope that his rehabilitation goes well and that we can see him next season. I think it's so important to our game on and off the court, one of the greatest tennis legends, the history of the game. We want to see Rafa healthy, no doubt about that, playing for what he's announced to be his last season.

You know, hopefully he's able to do that."

This Roland Garros is undoubtedly a draw that gradually loses important seeds, especially in the lower part. Of this aspect, Novak Djokovic looks but passes over.

"You're always following the top guys, how they're playing. Of course you're watching and analyzing everyone's play. You're basically following what's going on in the draw. But most of the attention is obviously focused on you, what is needed to win the next game. But of course I keep in mind what the others are doing," said the Serbian tennis player.
