"Statue is not enough... " Roger Federer's coach demands renaming court after Nadal


Roger Federer’s coach Ivan Ljubicic has called for renaming the French Open Centre Court after Tennis legend Rafael Nadal who has marked 14 victories in Roland Garros. No tennis player in history has even come close to the record of Nadal.

The Spaniard has never lost any French Open final and he maintained this record by defeating Casper Ruud on Sunday in the finals of the tournament. He is currently 2 majors ahead of his generational rivals Noval Djokovic and Roger Federer. 

To tribute the Spaniard and his legendary achievements, a statue has been installed in front of the stadium but Federer’s coach feels that “statue is not enough.”

Taking to twitter, Ljubicic wrote, “Not many PLAYED 14 @rolandgarros tournaments. He won it 14 times. There is no word to describe this feat. Don’t think good old Phillippe would mind if his court changes the name to Rafael Nadal – statue is not enough”.

World Number five Rafael Nadal put up a dominant show against Casper Ruud of Norway to win the men’s singles final match 6-3, 6-3, 6-0 here at the Court Philippe-Chatrier on Sunday to clinch his record 14th French Open crown and his 22nd grand slam title racing ahead of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.
