    Once both retired, do you see Roger & Rafa hang out together (outside court obviously). ?

    They might go out on double dates with Mirka and Mrs. Nadal.
    Who knows, Nadal might have a child in a couple of years and can be friends with little Federer.

    Right, cause Borg and Mac hang out all the time now.

    No way. They have a cordial relationship but Nadal has made it clear in interviews that they are neither friends nor close. Of course Nadal's friends speak Spanish!

    Well the statement is all true but as Fed says "Nothing is set in stone" so the possibility of them becoming friends after their illustrious career is definitely possible. Love to see that day come and we might never know we could see another Fed-Nadal rivalry involving their kids.

    Roger prefers high-flying friends and Rafa is more a home town boy. I don't think they have a lot in common personality wise. Why should they hang out together?

    If both Rafa and Fed teaches Fed's baby how to play and Pete and Andre teaches Andre's son to play, assuming both turn pro, who would win?

    Just kidding. Don't take this seriously, please.

    I don't see them as "buddies" but I could see them probably playing for the other's charity in the future.

    Kinda hard to communicate with Nadal, unless you know Spanish, no?
