Murray friends with Federer; TENNIS.

ROGER Federer and Andy Murray get on just fine, according to the 16-time grand slam champion's coach Paul Annacone.

While Federer and great rival Rafael Nadal have always had a genial relationship considering their on-court battles, the Swiss and Murray are regarded as much less friendly.

The British number one is a huge admirer of Nadal and has publicly backed him in the debate over who is the best player of all time, while Federer has on occasion appeared to belittle Murray.

Annacone said: "Roger has the utmost respect for Andy and really understands the complex environment Andy lives in with the media."
