"I had told Seve (Luthi): ‘I’m going there to serve-and-volley on 1st and 2nd serves’. Because I thought it could help me later."

Hmmm...

"If I don’t sleep 11 or 12 hours a day, it’s not right."

I wish I could sleep that much.

Yes good stuff. Thanks for posting. Would say more, but must get back to the pub.

Re: Excellent Federer Interview

A very good interview.

What he said about the Davis Cup was really interesting and he's right, Switzerland relies on him a lot in order to have a good run in DC and maybe next year or in 2012 he'll take seriously the DC.

He also showed how high he thinks about Nadal and how much he respects him.

A very good interview, thanks for it

Re: Excellent Federer Interview

Why are there people that hate this guy exactly? Seems like a genuinely nice man with respect for his rivals and the game.

Re: Excellent Federer Interview

Roger always gives interesting interviews he seems very content with life atm which is good, but still manages to subtly criticise some players....wouldn't be a Roger interview if he didn't! but on the whole he was very nice.

Oh and Roger you find out whether or not Davydenko can keep it up for 5 sets soon enough...don't you worry!

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013

Lol, not anymore apparently.

Winning should be respected, not hated.

C'mon, Roger. I expected a bit better than that.

Re: Excellent Federer Interview

case in point!

I like it exactly because it's honest and not the pc rubbish that people "expected". He's an athlete, he needs his sleep during a tournament.

Re: Excellent Federer Interview

It's an impromptu interview from l'equipe that was apparently done in the back of a car during Doha, answers seem candid enough
