    Rafa and Tsonga don't like each other?, there was that video of them together with Monfils at a Coldplay concert.

    Fed and Haas are like BFFs. Fed and Delpo have great respect for each other.

    Who are your best friends in the locker room and what do you get up to with them as you travel the world?

    I am really close friends with Roger Federer and also with Benoit Paire. I'm going out with Benoit to the restaurant for dinner and playing PlayStation with him sometimes.

    Like who, besides Sloane, who just got here?

    I'd be interested in knowing since she's always been known for being very friendly in the locker room.

    Who isn't?

    Bullfan, as a new user I will have to say that your posts in this thread are pretty obnoxious.
    They are, because you feel Fed and Wawrinka are friends and want to prove people who think otherwise that they are wrong. Since this is all a matter of opinion, you can't prove others wrong despite your desire to do so.

    As others have pointed out already, it's a matter of the definition of friendship. We all define it differently.
    If you ask one person how many friends they have, they might say 100, including every person they are friends with on FB. Others might say 1, only including the one person they share every single emotion and drama with.

    Fed giving Wawrinka a ride on his jet or handing him the carrying of the flag, sure nice gestures, but does that mean their friends? To some it does, to some it doesn't. No right or wrong here. Even Wawrinka saying they're friends on the tour can mean just that they respect eachother and are friendly on the tour, but not that they necessarily seek each other out to do stuff socially outside of their tennis life. To me personally, that doesn't mean their friends, but hey, my definition of friendship is such that I consider only 4-5 real friends. The rest are just friendly colleagues, friendly tennis-buddies etc.

    What a friend is to one person, is barely an acquaintance to another. Let's just respect people's opinion, no?

    Personally I think between Wawrinka and Fed it has more to do with having a lot of respect for eachother and having a very friendly tennis-relationship as compatriots. Benoit Paire seems closer to him.
