If Federer's profession was....

It has been many times by James Blake: "it's not only tennis, he'll be just as good in other sports." Federer seems to be fluid in motion and he somewhat reminds me of a Samurai. I have a feeling he'll be an exceptional Kendo/Gumdo fighter. He is calm and artistic as he matures allowing only the rage and fire to burn within him. He enjoys the following sports u're about to see as a hobby. So with his immense artistic talents....


If Federer's profession was a soccer/football player would he be as good as Zinedine Zidane and Pele?

If Federer's profession was a Basketball Player would he be as good as Larry Bird or Michael Jordan?

If Federer's profession was a Golfer would he be as good as Tiger Woods?

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

Re: If Federer's profession was....

No. Just like Pele, Zidane, Bird, Jordan and Woods wouldn't be half the tennis player that Federer is, had they taken up that sport. One thing is being a great athlete, another thing is the intense specialization it takes to become the very best at any given sport.

Re: If Federer's profession was....

He might be a good golfer, with his hand-eye co-ordination. Would be a total flop at basketball. Don't know what he'd be like at soccer.

If Federer's profession was an MTF poster, would he provide more interesting threads than Forehander?

Argh... I dunno Gjalex. Larry Bird was less of a flashy player during the era of Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson. He is also a hall of fame player and known as possibly the best team work player ever to have touched the game with AMAZING 3 point shootouts. Michael one on one skills would be far superior than Larry but definitely not in overall. Larry bird if he played longer he would have claimed more than 3 MVP's I reckon. Out of Johnson, Jordan and Bird. I prefer Bird over Jordan

I don't think that many people believe that Bird was better than Jordan...

Sry if I annoyed you with this post. But I play tennis on high level myself but I never found it boring (a profession) like my other teammates and friends. I am the most enthusiastic player within my training academy i believe but however I usually can't find alot of people to talk alot about tennis with. I talk with friends about other stuff of course but in general they don't want to talk about tennis since we play so much on a daily basis anyway. So therefore I join the MTF general Messages to share some of my tennis mindset

and also I reckon if Federer played Basketball he would be more of like a Larry Bird and Johnson player with amazing teamwork

If Federer played basketball, he would get tossed aside like a ragdoll. One forearm or body check from a standard forward would send him flying. He would look tiny on a court with professional players. He couldn't ever match Johnson or Bird.

But this is not talking tennis. It's talking basketball.

The thread is : if he was a PRO. Therefore he would not be as skinny and be more heavily built. With another 25 lb of muscle. So you cannot talk like he is a tennis player playing basketball if his profession was basketball.
