    Truly heartwarming how Rafa clearly was as emotional as Roger but didn't want to take any inch of the spotlight from him. He cried in the background and tried to stay as far away from the cameras, he even moved his tennis bag to the team bench so Roger could sit on the player's bench by himself and soak up the atmosphere one last time. He accompanied Roger throughout the most difficult day of his life, from his last practice, his last presser, his last preparation, his last walk on and off court, wordlessly sharing the burden but never stood in his way. He's truly an incredible example of sportsmanship, loyalty, and friendship!

      I noticed all those things about Rafa as well. That's the definition of a true friend.

    Thank you for this footage. It really can't be overstated how special this whole night was and just how special the friendship is between these two warriors. Even those of us who have always been 'Fedal' fans were taken aback at the depth of emotion on display. And then when you add that Rafa's family came to send off Roger also, and Roger's family equally caring for Rafa and I daresay this is a lifetime bond between them all. Truly beautiful to see.

      Yes. Most people there didn't realize how deep their relationship are until they witnessed it themselves.
      I particularly didn't expect to see Rafa bawling like that.

    How precious it is to watch Robert Federer asking his son "where's Rafa?" 35:23-35:25 and proceed to hug him 😭😭

      @Cineastik 82 Rafa and Roger are basically the other half of each other's life (tennis wise). Rafa never experience tennis professionally without Roger in the scene. Roger will never be one of the greats without initial challenge by Rafa. They (including each other's family and team) are so used to see each other around it will be very hard for Rafa not to see Roger ever again playing in the circuit with him. That's why probably he also looked really emotional because it really hit him hard that day. Roger's family know how important Rafa is to Roger thus they grow really close over the years

      Also, how intense Mirka hugs him as well at 27:38. It really shows that although Rafa is Roger‘s biggest rival, basically the one who is responsible for Federer not having multiple calendar grand slams and way more than one FO title, he is loved by every member of the Federer family, and that for a very good reason! Great to see this footage and surprisingly it hasn‘t been shown by other media so far afaik…

      @ Musha I really wanted them to win. I cried when the tournament was over. I so really wanted that last win with the 4of them together. Roger, Andy, Nole and Rafa. Would have been great but that's like. Lol.

    Thank you so much for posting and giving us a courtside view to one of the most emotional moments in tennis history for fans and non-fans. Rogers ability to connect with fans, press and his fellow players/rivals is unmatched and seeing the players (Tsitsipas, Novak, Nadal of course and commentators on TV) getting emotional was incredible. Rafa, you are the most ferocious of competitors with a massive heart and the Fedal rivalry/friendhip is one for the ages and something I have never see in sport. Thank you Roger and Rafa. Thank you Susie for posting!

    I really love seeing the raw emotions of all the players, especially those who didn't really have a good rep before. Anyone who cries like this is not a bad person, just have moments of frustration and don't know to deal with it. I will be rooting for them from now on.

      @anuja Chauhan Think you might be right -- looks like he gestures to him to sit down? And yes, Djoker showing some nice sensitivity there, plus rounding up the rest of the guys to do the throne celebration. Djoker and Rafa were very good to Fed on his last day.

    • anuja Chauhan

      Even Novak consoling Roger. but Roger quietly sort of thanking Rafa for being there was truly touching. I felt Roger told Rafa to sit next to him. Rafa was always in the background till then..

    Thank you for this footage. Tennis Channel decided to cut away from live footage and go to commentators in studio for some dumb reason -- as if those of us tuning in wanted to hear from Navratilova and Opelka in this moment instead of watching Roger and the rest. So I finally got to see what I missed from their coverage. I ate up every second -- thank you bunches!!!!!!

    Absolutely the best emabassador of the game of tennis. Yes there will be other greats that are coming through the ranks but to have this much admiration from all of his tennis rivals and ppl who just PALING LOVE HIM LIKE I DO (still wear all your gear RF and have been using every one of your rackets as you changed through the years) and will until I can no longer play. I am 65 this last sept 25 and I keep going because of you. Still playing singles against 30-50 year olds and beat them regularily and playing more doubles now.
    You are the G.O.A.T. in my opinion not because of all the titles because they will always be surpassed at some point but because of WHO YOU ARE AS A PERSON...... you are the BEST
    Have a great deserve to do some other things now as you have given us and the sport so much joy over the years.
