Nadal says in the video: “We have been like rivals for all our career so to be on the same team and even play some doubles together will be something very, very special and I’m very excited about”.

Roger returns the favor by stating “I’m just really excited about the prospect of me being on the same court, for instance in the doubles, with Rafa,” and goes on saying “Or just supporting on the sidelines. Not that I haven’t enjoyed watching him play in the past but now I’ll be really cheering him on to rip one forehand winner after another. So for me to experience that, having Bjorn Borg as our Captain, just the inspirational figure that he is, I think it’s just amazing.”
