Re: Roger Federer to be a Dad!!!

I'm so happy for Roger and Mirka. This news was great to wake up to.

Rogi will be an excellent father.

Seconded, I hope though that his fans don't go down the pessimistic attitude road. I am sure he is still fully focussed and as Karin said this may make him more relaxed and give him that extra inspiration.

It might just bring back a much needed relaxed attitude to the game.

We'll have to wait and see how it all pans out. It's different for everyone.
Being too relaxed means that he is going to lose. He needs some adrenaline to win the big ones and that is only going to flow if he has some level of stress and a strong belief that tennis is his only focus. Believe me, I would love for Roger to perfectly balance a new baby in his life with winning slams but my own experience and the experience of pro players who became dads tells a different story.

Anyway, I will continue watching his game like I have been doing for the past several years.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Roger Federer to be a Dad!!!

I'm very happy for Mirka and Roger, who have been together for so many years
Hopefully Mirka will continue to have an uncomplicated pregnancy.

We have to wait and see what this news will mean for Roger's career, but what do all tennisvictories and records count compared with a child who will accompany you for a whole life?

Mirka and Roger will surely be wonderful parents

And I just think you're too negative on this. Being more relaxed doesn't necessarily mean too relaxed.
And if you think that tennis isn't his main focus anymore... well would he have broken out into tears at losing the AO final, if he didn't mind it any longer? I highly doubt it. But well I'm a rather positive person, and I live by the rule 'it ain't over till it's over...'

Like I said it's different for all. I have indeed seen people lose their focus on things that were important to them before when they started having kids - but I've also seen the exact opposite happening, people finding new inspiration to finally get hold of their goals.

Of course! When Edberg called it quits I thought I'd never watch the game anymore... and look what happened thereafter.
Even if one thinks the current bunch plays boring tennis, once in a while there will be someone appearing on the scene again that does manage to attract our attention again.

Re: Roger Federer to be a Dad!!!

All I can say is anyone who is a fan and can't be happy with this news is a selfish bastard. This is Roger's life. It's not about us getting to see him break Sampras's record.

Cheer up You don't know how it's going to affect his career, so no need to be pessimistic about it all. Just wait and see.

I personally think it's great news. After all it is his life and he is really happy by the looks of things. If Rogi starts losing day in day out and doesn't win a title this year, then I think we could question and start speculating the reasons. But the truth is he hasn't played for 6 weeks. All I am saying is don't count the eggs before they've hatched (is that the saying btw ?), i.e. wait and see how it turns out and then judge. I am sure he will be fine, after all Roger is so passionate about Tennis, and getting a baby will not change his motivations of that I am sure. He has set himself a target of staying on the tour for as long as possible, and in the meantime his life has to continue.
