But tennis fans were more delighted to see Federer and Nadal together as they are known for being arch rivals on the tennis court.
In two decades of rivalry, they played 40 times including in 9 Grand Slam finals. Nadal holds a 24-16 winning record. But this time they are on the same side. Together they have won 42 Grand Slam titles.
Which Tournament Roger Federer Is Playing On Friday?

On Friday, he will play his final ATP Tour match alongside long-time rival and friend Rafael Nadal. And the fans are crazy to see the two tennis legends on the same side of the net in the Ryder Cup-style event. They were the last scene together at the Laver Cup 2017.
Dogged by a knee injury, Roger Federer has been out of the game since the 2021 Wimbledon quarter-finals and it was only last week that the 41-year-old Swiss tennis star announced retirement from professional sport.
