I had goose bumps reading Lendl's comments!

Re: Players' Comment on Roger

By Nick Bollettieri:

Roger Federer is by far the best player on the planet right now. I witnessed his ability first hand during a practice session between one of my students, Tommy Haas, and him. With each and every ball and every single movement, his focus seemed almost unhuman during the two-hour workout. Federer's performance was that of a true champion.

I predict that Roger Federer has a strong possibility of becoming the greatest player in the history of tennis. For the first time, even the old timers won't argue that he wasn't around to face the best of the best, including Laver, Gonzalez, Sampras, Lendl and Kramer.

Nice comment Lceh, is that recent? Wasn't aware that Nick had a connection with Haas.

Re: Players' Comment on Roger

Should be a recent comment Wyv. The practice match mentioned there took place Friday last week I believe.

That's a very comment I read the Lendl article, and the old-timers love the guy and it's hard not to.

Haas was coached by Nick for years, and he should have used inhuman instead of unhuman.

Yup, it was during this USO. I found that quote from the "Nick's pics" for Day 3.

Henman on the Fed:

"He's playing absolutely phenomenal tennis," Henman said. "From a fellow competitor's point of view, you're always trying to find a way to sort of counteract the way that he plays. It's so difficult to do, because he's so complete in, I think, every area. I feel fairly confident he'll show again tomorrow why he's the No. 1 right now."

Re: Players' Comment on Roger

"If you take Roddick's serve and Agassi's returns and my volleys and Hewitt's speed and tenacity, then you've probably got a good chance against Federer," said the 30-year-old Henman, who failed to reach the first Grand Slam final of his career. "That's a lot of people involved in one player."

Re: Players' Comment on Roger

From an interview with Goran Ivanisevic in the Independent:

Does he subscribe to the widespread view that Federer is destined to become the greatest tennis player of all time? "Yes," he says. "I hit with him when he was 15, during a tournament in Basle, and I knew then he would be good, but not this good. If he stays healthy, it will actually be a miracle if he doesn't win more Grand Slams than Pete [Sampras]. The way he picks his shots is unbelievable. He is fast, he has a great volley, a great serve, great backhand, great everything. If I was his coach, what can I tell him? He is a magician with a racket. Even when he is playing badly, which is rarely, he can still do things with his racket nobody else can do.

"I have played him twice, and lost both times. At Wimbledon this year I hit with him, because he was playing Bogdanovic and he wanted some practice with a leftie. I am much older but it was still an honour to practise with him. If I had a young player I was coaching I would take him first to watch Federer. But I would also take him to watch Henman, you know. The press in England is not fair to Henman. He is a great player. The way he plays volleys, he is like a professor of tennis."

Amelie Mauresmo on Roger:

Amélie Mauresmo n'a pas caché son admiration pour le Suisse Roger Federer. "Il a une sûreté hallucinante, une perfection technique incroyable et a connu une saison exceptionnelle. Je peux essayer de m'inspirer de ce qu'il fait", a-t-elle souhaité.

Translation (from Amelie's forum in WTAWorld, thread here http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=142741):

Amélie Mauresmo did not hide her admiration for Switzerland Roger Federer . "He has an incredible assurance, an incredible technical perfection and knew one exceptional season. I can try to inspire to me by what he does ", she wished.

Amelie has always been one of my favourite WTA players; and it's nice to see her speaking highly of Roger too.
