Now turn the outside of the field: Federer and Nadal in the flesh on Djokovic

Despite the big rivalry there outside the rink longstanding verbal borgfred between the biggest names.

It's over now, where Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are forming a common front against the current verdensetter Novak Djokovic, who sits as president of the men's spillerråd.

As such, he has recently been involved with – and, apparently, worked hard - to make a rather controversial decision to give silkesnoren to the ATP ceo Chris Kermode.

the Englishman, who otherwise have enjoyed wide recognition, had rejected its application for a contract extension by a majority of the board of directors consisting of three spillerrepræsentanter as well as the contentious – and voldssigtede – coach and tv commentator, Justin Gimelstob.

the Decision has aroused consternation among turneringsarrangører and players, several of whom have expressed themselves during the ongoing tournament in Indian Wells.

on Monday announced Federer, former president of the spillerrådet until 2014, that he strongly disagrees with the decision that he for the same reason again intends to throw himself into tennispolitik, and that he has the support of his former vice-president, Nadal.

- I feel that everything is going well in tennissporten just now, and so you're going to talk about politics and have it such that ’what is happening here?’ I think we have to find out, and I have it such that I would like to have contact with, where we are going, said schweizeren in an interview with the Tennis Channel.
