(SOUNDBITE (English) SECOND SEED, ROGER FEDERER, SPEAKING ABOUT PLAYING ALONGSIDE NADAL AND DJOKOVIC, SAYING: "Yeah I mean and it also shows that side-by-side we can have incredible careers.

Funnily enough, you always think that somebody takes away something from the other.

Probably we had but at the same time, we pushed each other to greater heights and to improve maybe Rafa's grass, Novak's whatever, hard courts.

I don't know what, my clay, I don't know.

But I think we definitely became better because of one another and I don't know if we'd still be all be playing if maybe we'd have played in different eras.

But it has been fun having us, from my side.

I don't know, I hope the fans enjoyed it because I think we are all very different characters." STORY: Wimbledon second seed and multiple former champion Roger Federer says his rivalry with fellow greats Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal has boosted all their careers.

Swiss Federer has won the men's trophy eight times since 2003 while Djokovic has one fewer and Nadal has his name on the cup twice.

Speaking on Saturday (June 29), Federer told the media: "I don't know if we'd still be all be playing if maybe we'd have played in different eras.

But it has been fun... I hope the fans enjoyed it because I think we are all very different characters."
