After the LC final interview. Rafa apologized to all journalists that he had to leave. Then told Roger he was going and he would see him soon. Roger said Rafa to wait and go to lockeroom that they would farewell properly.

Rafa awaits patiently. After years of planning, work, effort and sacrifice by the entire Nadal family and a team delivered to the fascinating project, it was time to show the world the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar, a project whose construction had been on November 3, 2014. And Rafa did not want to do it alone. He longed and wanted to live that historic date with Roger. No one better by his side to symbolize the legacy of a sport career so sacrificed and prolific.

Then, Roger stops to read the words that Rafa has written in his own handwriting in the lower part of the box:

Dear Roger:

Thank you very much for your support in the official opening of my academy. Today is an unforgettable day for me, my family and my team. You cannot imagine how special that is having you here with us. Roger, this picture reflects all the moments that we have had together on the track. I watch them and see all the great memories that we have encountered in our careers. They will continue …

Roger looked at Rafa. And Rafa looked back at Roger. They embraced.

Federer knew the deep depth that these phrases had for the context, for the present set and for an indelible past. But, above all, for the future. It was the last word of the dedication that contains a background special, unique and full of optimism.

And then, memories buried in silence begin to charge form with Federer’s initial dissertation. “I am about to say my first words here since I am injured,” the Swiss starts, “And I have to say that this time has been very simple for me: I have enjoyed at home, I have spent time with my family, the trainings have gone well ...” And at that moment Federer pauses for a moment to fix his gaze on Nadal. “But, honestly, I do not know how it’s going to be my return to the tracks.” Reflective, the Swiss, “You have done it a million times, so I will be able to inspire myself by you and how you have done it so easily.”

My dear Fedal fam,

listen everyone you can all read the first chapter of Rafa & Roger here!!

Regular

“For more than a decade Rafa and Roger have lived with a relationship in which they have been labeled sportingly as adversaries and rivals . Superlative labels that have posted them to the Olympus of deities: Nadal and Federer are the most exemplary opponents, the rivals by antonomasia and the best archenemies in the history of tennis. But the appointment scheduled for November 19, 2016 [the opening of Rafa Nadal Academy] has nothing to do with the confrontation nor with rivalry. It has to do with companion.”

Where did we meet, Rafa? Where did we meet, Roger? Somewhere in the world, but that does not matter at all. What it gives it really matters is all we have live.
