Roger Federer has praised Rafael Nadal for an “unbelievable” year.

Nadal won his 19th Grand Slam title.

“Winning two Slams over one year is unbelievable,” he said. “He had to change something after dealing with issues on hard courts and he did it. After Monte Carlo he started dominating. With him, I am never surprised because I know what he is capable of.

“For me, it’s a deep satisfaction to play at such an age. I am just trying to keep winning and playing for Grand Slam wins. We will see how the race will go at the end. It’s an amazing time for tennis with three players who were able to win so much. I try to have my best career, Rafa too. Everyone, including Djokovic, wants to be fit and healthy.”
