Mumbai: World heavyweights Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have decided to enter politics. Nadal said he and his arch-rival Roger Federer have decided to jointly contest the ATP players' council election. Eighteen-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal of Spain, 33, has advanced to the ATP Montreal Masters after beating Guido Pella of Argentina 6-3, 6-4. Federer and Nadal, the 20-time Grand Slam champion, have been selected by fellow players.
The posts were vacated following the resignations of Rabin Haase, Jamie Murray, and Sergei Stakhovski. "We have decided to go together," Nadal said. Neither will he be alone nor will I be alone. We will be able to work together for the good of the game. In the past year, there were a lot of ups and downs, after which we made this decision so that we could better understand what was happening.
Over the past few months, there have been controversies over issues in which ATP Council President Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer differ. Kevin Anderson, John Isner, Sam Quer, Bruno Soares, Lu Ye Hun, and Vasek Pospisil are also part of the panel. The ATP announced on Thursday that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, who were among the Elite players, have shown their strength in the sport for 15 years and will take up their positions with immediate effect.
