All eyes will surely be on the match in doubles category, while Roger will play alongside Novak. Their partnership have many names so far: “Fedovic” , “Djokofed” or “Djokerer” – fans are still voting. Federer is happy to play side-by-side with Djokovic, saying: “I would like to play with Djokovic, I hope he feels the same way. I get along very well with everybody.”

 

World ATP number one Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro are both injured. So, Novak and Roger will add a lot of excitement to this event, even if they played against each other many times.  How they will perform together, it remains to be seen. “We have had so many great battles in all the singles courts, and to finally team up together I think is going to be very special for both of us”, Roger said in his latest interview.
