"In Depth" Federer Interview (BBC site)

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/8030695.stm

In depth 4 questions

Highlights:

Fed is happy to be playing with the "new" crop of players but misses his rivalries with Sampras, Agassi and Henman.

Fed doesn't make excuse, but did have mono and a bad back last season. He won Basel while being in great pain

Every match is still won his racket and not on theirs (Nole and the rest)

Be fair.

He said: "I'm now, you know, almost, you know, a legend in the game."

Re: "In Depth" Federer Interview (BBC site)

But when he lost he is injured, no?
Or is tired, no?
Inhuman schedule, no?

Interesting that the highlights for you are his questionable comments. you should try to see the good in people, then the world becomes an better place for you

e.g. He said many nice things about Nadal and was very polite...

I don't see the fun in that.

And even though he was mostly nice about Rafa, he still managed to get in a few little Rogi moments.

Really nice of Roger to remind us that he is "almost a legend" and that he had mono and a bad back last year
