Fed at thirty-still dominating tennis he says

He might win wimbledon for five more years but I cant see him on top anywhere else. I'll never understand why people act as if age doesn't make a difference in sports. Even with the side drugs players are very likely taking you just are not the same person at 24 that you are at 30.
Am i the only one who thinks this another example of his huge arrogance?
A "I can beat anyone now matter how old I get" mentality.

He is lucky to have avoided injuries as much as he has.
He is also blessed by a weak minded competitive field, who, with all the money being thrown around in tennis, doesn't really care if they win or lose.

Every player in the top 100 is arrogant.

Re: Fed at thirty-still dominating tennis he says

Show me a quote where he says that.
I can only see the journalist assuming/making up that.

A thread for a supposed quote by Federer, and it's not even based on a quote. Great. This qualifies for deletion by the mods.

Re: Fed at thirty-still dominating tennis he says

It's going to get much harder for him as he has to battle with his own body as well as his opponents as 30 approaches.

Starting to sound a bit like hubris from Roger, I think it's time he shut up before he meets the inevitable nemesis.

Re: Fed at thirty-still dominating tennis he says

case, the fan that gives Gasquet fans a bad name.

Quality thread though.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Fed at thirty-still dominating tennis he says

Here's the actual quote from the article:

"I enjoy the battle so much on the tennis court with my opponent, practice is also fun," the 25-year-old said.
"But playing in front of all the fans, enjoying the applause and everything, that's what will keep me going in tennis for at least the next five years."



I hope he realises the battles will start to get harder, not easier...

Re: Fed at thirty-still dominating tennis he says

They will catch up to Federer soon enough and once they see he is vulnerable then it won't be so easy apart from Wimbledon.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

What about richie 21? I used to be indifferent towards Gasquet but after reading his propaganda threads the words overrated and Gasquet are forever linked in my mind.

Re: Fed at thirty-still dominating tennis he says

I don't like Federer, and as much as he is very arrogant, I can't see much of it in this article. Its more of the writer assuming and taking words from his mouth.

How this equals "Fed at thirty -dominating he says" only case can make a case. This only says he will keep playing till he is 30.

Huh?
That's what the article starts off by sayinbg. If you have aproblem with that talk with Eurosport. Obviously, they did not have a problem with it.
He talks of winning five wimbledons. Talks of winning four grans slams in a row, doesnt sound like a guy who would back away from saying i'll be on top in five years. In facdt it sounds like he is saying it. He also gives credit to all you never say die fans for him being around in five years

Another example of the over the top Fed fans who would defend this guy with blood.

Im only tyhe messenger

That doesn't sound like 'hubris' - as you put it - though, does it? More like a healthy enjoyment of and enthusiasm for the game. I'm sure he realises more than anybody that it'll get more difficult as time marches on........he's always going on about the young guns etc hard on his heels.
