Interview with Federer from 2001

First of I appologize for another Federer thread on GM, though I hope this one is going to stay here because not every Roger fan is having a look at the players thread

Here is a very interesting interview with Roger from 2001, which some of you might like to check out:

Re: Interview with Federer from 2001

Thanks for posting-- didn't get through the whole thing because I could not help but wonder if he has had a nose job since then!

Or maybe it is just the hair pulled back that accentuates the nose. Remember (or maybe you weren't here then) when he was routinely called Potato Nose on the forum?

Thanks. I think it shows well that Fed has not changed much in personality.

Yeah, he was Potato Nose. Hewitt was Potato. Hewitt fans were Potato Peelers. Roddick was duck even then. Safin was hippo at some point ( a silly joke he told journalists in a PMI).

Re: Interview with Federer from 2001

It is really nice to see Roger when he was still a teen and still dream about getting that first break through. He's so shy! But either way, he still acts the same way, but he knows now that he knows who he is now.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

He's done something. I'd bet on it.

Back then - to put it in Arnold's language - he was one ugly mother fucker.

Re: Interview with Federer from 2001

Almost 10 years time, confidence ....and a million dollar haircut are all reasons you know he did not have any nose job.
(it will look even better in 10 more years.)

Re: Interview with Federer from 2001

lol Federer is purely much more clean now. That's all there is. He takes better care of his own self appearance end of story. No injections, no going under the knife. This is what you call a nose job people:






And don't give me the Aquamid or Botox or other dermal fillers talk.
