1328-1337 Eurosport add their 10 reasons.

VIDEO - 10 reasons to love Roger Federer - Wimbledon - Video Eurosport UK

"The point is that to root for Federer is to root for a Platonic ideal. It is like rooting for truth. (...) Detractors who said, “Don’t you get tired of him winning all the time?” were missing the point. Every victory was a validation. No one gets bored by the sun coming up in the morning."

1339: following Roger's livestreaming of his practice with Lucas Pouille in Dubai (Dec 22, 2016)

text from DavidLawTennis on twitter: Federer's attitude on the practice court is exactly what it was when I first clapped eyes on him the day after he won Wimbledon boys in '98.

Re: 2000+ Reasons Why We Love Roger...

1340: Roger Federer remembers late Australian coach Peter Carter who 'set foundation' for glittering career - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Roger Federer has paid homage to his trusted former Australian coaches for helping shape the most prolific grand slam performer men's tennis has seen.

In a poignant tribute to Peter Carter, who died in a car accident in South Africa a week before Federer's 21st birthday, the ageless maestro says the South Australian moulded him as a man and player and remains the most influential mentor of his storied career.

"Peter Carter had the biggest impact on me in terms of my technique. That's what so many people talk about," Federer said as he celebrated his unforgettable Australian Open final triumph over Rafael Nadal.

"When they talk about my effortless style and technique, I guess. I was able to perfect in later in my life, but he (Carter) set the foundation and that's why I'm so happy that his parents were at the finals yesterday and saw me win.


"That really meant a lot to me."

Federer was already a four-time major winner before linking up with another Australian great in Tony Roche, the ex-coach of fellow former world number ones Ivan Lendl and Pat Rafter.

The Swiss collected another six slams under Roche's guidance.

"Rochey, like every coach I've had, took me to the next level," Federer said.

"He made me work extremely hard. I like the old-school work ethic that Rochey brought to the table.

Re: 2000+ Reasons Why We Love Roger...

1343: This video of Roger's autograph session at this year's Indian Wells is.... something else.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smXqrwjMYt8

Not only does he sign at the session for half an hour, he then goes and signs for people who were too far back in line to be part of the session, while he's being led away. And the whole time they are screaming at him, screaming his name. At times, the video is sped up (otherwise it would be much longer) and they chose to keep the audio during the sped up parts. I honestly think that frenzied sped-up audio must be what it actually sounded like to Roger after a while!

For some people it would be a dream to be famous, to have people adoring them like this. But others would find it overwhelming, emotionally draining and frankly a bit scary. Roger's been exposed to this for 10-14 years now; I'm sure the novelty has worn off, yet he stays so good-natured and calm and patient all the time.

This is seriously insane.

I don't know any other sports star who does this (I mean, signing autographs for THAT long).

I don't know how he has the patience to do it.

The way he deals with fans and fame is extremely impressive to me. I have witnessed myself how the crowd eats out of his hands. He's so relaxed and genuine interacting with a big adoring crowd that they can't help but respond with love.

He can put smiles on people's faces, make them happy, gift them a moment. He knows it too, which is why it's a chore that he bears with ease.
