Federer and Nadal run for the ATP throne

Federer and Nadal run for the ATP throne

Federer, however, added that he is in no rush to quit tennis.

Rafael Nadal is a two-time champion at the Mexican Open. After looking so good in the early rounds in Melbourne, especially when he defeated home favourite Nick Kyrgios in four hard-fought sets (including three tie-breakers) in the fourth round, he was comfortably the favourite for his quarter-final against Britain's Kyle Edmund.

The rankings are updated every week on Monday. During the grass season, it will be Roger's turn to defend the points he won in tournaments played on the surface. "That is how we get a chance to prolong our careers".

On board with the Halo
New for the 2018 season, the Halo Cockpit Protection System is mandatory for all cars to improve cockpit safety in the sport. Championship rivals Ferrari also launched their new car, the SF71H yesterday.

Who will finish the 2018 race as the No. 1? "Good luck to all the Nominees - see you next week #Laureus18", tweeted the 20-time Grand Slam winner. "After that he wants to make the trip early to the US and start preparing for the defence of his title at Indian Wells and Miami later", tournament director Salah Tahlak told Gulf News.

"The head of the ATP, Chris Kermode, he's promoting a lot the next generation, so we should do that". It moves up and down.

As William Skidelsky points out time and again in his sublime book on Federer, "Federer and Me", for all of Federer's extraordinary physical attributes - his cat-like movement, his deceptive power and his relative resistance to injury - perhaps his greatest, even defining, characteristic is his mental strength. Initially, it was just applied to differentiate him from Federer, who is a decade older than him.
