Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will always hold a special place in the hearts and minds of tennis fans. Whatever they do together sparks interest, no matter how mundane or fancy. When we were at home during the throes of the pandemic and the pair went live on Instagram to catch up, fans went crazy.

Fans will be thrilled over the pair's joint appearance in a new Louis Vuitton 'Core Values' ad campaign. It features the two sitting amid the snowy mountains of Italy reminiscing about their tennis careers. A topic that comes up is their first meeting which Nadal remembers clearly, but Federer does not.

As Nadal discusses their first meeting while he was playing juniors when Federer won his first Wimbledon in 2003, Federer interrupts and asks if he was nice to him. Nadal deadpans that he was "a little bit arrogant", but then he tells the truth and says yes he was.

Another funny part of their ad was Nadal sharing how he felt about snowfall. Nadal knows that Federer is used to it, but he hinted that a little goes a long way for him.

Federer's next project is called 'Twelve Final Days' set for release on Amazon Prime Video on June 20. It is a documentary taking fans behind the scenes of the 12 final days of his professional tennis career. Everyone is excited to see this including Mardy Fish, the retired tennis player who should join forces with Federer and Nadal in future projects. Fish commented on the sneak peek of Federer's documentary by saying "Roger lets give the people what they really want. 12 days leading up to me beating you in Indian Wells..."

As for Nadal, his playing days are not over yet. Fans really want to see him make a run at the tournament he has dominated for over a generation, the 2024 French Open. His return to the ATP Tour in 2024 after nearly a year off dealing with injuries has given us some glimpses of vintage Rafa. Is there more left in the tank for Roland Garros?
