Roger Federer: Good value in tennis betting markets

Rafael Nadal’s uncle, Toni, says he doesn’t believe Roger Federer will ever win another Grand Slam, although he admits he’s said that before and made made to look a fool.

Federer , who is 37 now, has dismissed talk of retirement and vowed to return better next season.

He won the Australian Open but didn’t challenge at the other Slams, and Toni Nadal says we should get used to that.

“I’m not sure what we can expect from 2019,” Toni Nadal wrote in his weekly column for El Pais.

“[But] it seems difficult for us to see Federer lifting another Grand Slam trophy.

“I have to confess, though, that I have said this on other occasions about him and he has repeatedly surprised me.”
