Emotions and tears on Friday at the O2 Arena in London for the Swiss’s farewell to tennis Roger Federer. A last match paired with the great rival, the Spaniard Rafael Nadal, then the tears of both of them, as they held hands, on the bench at the end of the match. On this snapshot he also posted on Instagram Leonardo Bonuccicaptain of the Juve and the Italian national team.
Bonucci: “A lesson in life, an image to look at every day”
Bonucci wrote, accompanying the image: “This photo is a lesson. Not about sports. Of Life. We should watch it every day. Thank you, because even sitting on a bench, you continue to be examples to follow. Because friendship in rivalry, respect for the other, those hands that you would never want to leave are a lesson for every generation “.
Federer and Nadal have written memorable pages in the history of tennis. But they really showed what it’s like to be bitter enemies on a field, but then friends in time of need. That hand firmly grasped by Nadal was what the elegant Swiss who came to swan song with the racket needed.
