Two of the greats in tennis, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, met of all places on the helipad at the Burj Al Arab in Dubai on Sunday.
Federer and Djokovic have combined to win seven Dubai titles, and the two commemorated the 20th anniversary of the tournament by making themselves available to the media during a press conference and chat session that reached new heights.
“Novak was the best of the bunch in Dubai last year and it was great to see,” Federer said. “I can only tip my hat to him and I expect him to be really tough as the year goes on.”
Said Djokovic, “Roger has been such an iconic player, he was revolutionary in some ways, he’s changed the game and because of him this game is what it is at this moment.”
Djokovic, seeking a fourth straight title, is the top seed in the tournament that begins Monday. Federer is seeded second.
Djokovic will play his first round Monday against Stebe, Federer will play Llodra on Tuesday.
