Federer also asked Nadal why does he play with the left hand when he is originally right-handed.
Federer asked Nadal “One thing I wanted to ask you because it has been bothering me that you are a lefty. That’s a problem for me. If you are a righty, why do you play lefty when you could play with the right hand.”
Then Nadal answered, “I can not play with the right hand, I can write with the right hand. My basketball skills are with right but not in tennis. I started with two hands-backhand and forehand. I was hitting with two-hand backhand so people did not know whether I was left-handed or right-handed. But I always played with left-hand.”
Then Federer replied, “Okay, so then I cannot be angry, that is just natural.”
Nadal admitted he has not played any tennis since the Indian wells. Then Federer said that “it could work in his favor when tennis returns to its normal course.”
Due to the Novel coronavirus outbreak, Wimbledon has been cancelled for the first time since World War II.
