Absolutely loved Novak’s celebratory message to Roger.

Forget all the rubbish please said about Novak, he is a class act. Doesn’t matter what people think of Novak, he is a class act with his gorgeous message. Health, love and happiness back to Novak and to Roger, fantastic player for the ages. Never to be forgotten.

One more slam Roger. If not, we are happy!
