Re: Players' Comment on Roger

Andy Roddick on Rogers longevity:

"It's nuts, but I think looking back 10 years ago if you were gonna say who's gonna have the most longevity as long as they're happy playing, we all probably would have pointed to Roger. Not only because his game is less taxing on the body because he's such a natural and he has different options, he can choose to shorten points if he wants to.

But physicality aside, I'll tell anybody the part where I was the most jealous of Roger was how laid back he'd be before matches. I was a mess. I was nervous. I was tense. I was tough to be around, and moody and that takes a toll on you as well as the physical stuff. How he's able to kind of compartmentalize, 'Okay, I'm relaxed up until I'm playing and then I'm focused.' And Pete kind of had the same thing. That's probably the part I'm most envious of and I think that's why he's still competing at the highest level."


Roddick on Djokovic, Federer and GOAT - Tennis Now

We may have got used to older players still being at the top of the game, but these statements show just how special it still is to compete at an advanced age with much younger opponents, not just physically, but also mentally. I guess being such a "natural" would help with both challenges, it just comes easier to Roger, less stressful when compared to other players. I'll be excited to watch how other players compare wrt longevity in the near future.

"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."

Re: Players' Comment on Roger

^^ there were many other tweets, it's just exhausting to collect them and put them all in.

some that mostly thanked both players for a great match (Ferrer and Verdasco, who were obviously cheering for Nadal); there were congrats from retired players like Boris Becker and Billie Jean King ... and pretty much the entire WTA!

Here's Kiki Mladenovic's tweet of a bunch of WTA players watching the final point ahead of their tournament in Russia:

For some reason, this six-year old tweet by Serena Williams has resurfaced on Twitter tonight.
