Young Federer is not peak Federer. Young Federer was very emotional, and got angry very quickly, but Roger phased that out of his game when he became more mature. He even said himself that he went too far in this, and needed to show more emotion again (was in an interview with him a while back on tv, don't know when exactly).

Good luck trying to find a player that NEVER does one of those things. Out of all the players, peak Federer definitely was one of the guys who showed the least emotion on court
