Federer loved by all the past tennis ATG
Among the dominant players of this generation and the past i don't think anyone is more loved by old ATG of tennis than Roger Federer.
I think the reason is quite obvious.. he is not a glory hog. He is sharing his achievments with the past era of tennis. He keeps telling people during interviews that he is a big fan of laver, rosewall, stefan edberg, and pistol pete sampras.
He never criticized an era instead he kept praising them.
Also, because of federer the old ATGs feel very relevant to the present of tennis. They show up to his championship matches and they get to share the glory.
A change of the guard is coming. From the old guard to the older guard.
Q: Roger we have seen you earlier in Miami talking to a woman with no pants , what does it mean to you ?
A: well , it means a lot to me obviously .. you know .. to see this dedication from my fans , and as a professional attacking tennis player , I know it was a pretty difficult situation after 6 months of absence, but you have to keep being positive whatever happens , ya know .. talking my way .. not HER way , and who knows .. I may be able to be #1 again and smack that ass
Rogi was shit, this court is shit, the roof is shit, the tournament is now shit, the draw is shit, the fans are shit. Youzhny was good. Then shit.
