Melbourne, Jan.10 (ANI): After suffering defeat at the hands of World number one Novak Djokovic in the title clash of the Qatar Open, Rafael Nadal has delivered the highest praise to the former.
The Serbian defeated the Spaniard 6-1, 6-2 in the match that lasted for an hour, to claim his first title of the year.
Lavishing praise on the 28-year-old, the world number five said that he played against a player who did everything perfect.
The Spaniard continued saying when he said perfect, he was not talking about one thing in particular but everything.
The 14-time Grand Slam champion insisted that he has never seen anybody playing tennis like this ever.
Earlier, Djokovic moved ahead for the first time in his long-running rivalry with Nadal after he defeated the latter to clinch the Qatar Open title.
The world number one had dominated 2015, winning three of the year’s four grand slams, and he already looks in the groove in the build-up to this month’s Australian Open. (ANI)
