Since 2004 they have met 40 times, with 24 victories for the Spanish, 16 for the Swiss. However, now they will form a pair in the Laver, as happened five years ago in the same tournament.

He will put an end to his award-winning sports career after 24 years, in which he has established himself as one of the best tennis players in history, after winning 20 Grand Slams, six finals of the ATP and two Olympic medals.
