Nadal: Don't write Federer off

Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal has said that no-one should right off record breaker Roger Federer just yet, the World no one insists that the Swiss is no spent force and is backing the player to add to his 16 grand slam titles.

"He won at the Australian Open and won in Cincinnati (Federer's 17th Masters 1000 title), got to the final in Madrid and Toronto ... so it's a good year for him," Nadal told reporters at this week's Japan Open.

"It's very difficult to always be 100 percent and what Federer did the last seven or eight years is almost impossible to repeat. It's unbelievable."

Nadal has kept us the pace with Federer this season in winning all four grand slam crowns winning last month's U.S. Open to move to nine overall titles.

But the Spaniard has warned that it was far too early to write off Federer, who has won 63 career titles but has slipped to third in the world rankings.

"Of course he is going to challenge to win the big tournaments," said Nadal, who is making his first appearance in Japan this week. "He is still -- what? -- number two or three in the world and his game is still at a very high level." Best Blogger Tips
