A very classy and distinctive young man from a certain fortress labeled me as such. I suspect the main reason for me earning this remarkable title was that I didn't agree with the classy and distinctive young man about certain matters regarding lawn tennis. I felt no immediate urge to question the accuracy of my new insignia though, as judging by the classy and distinctive young man's manner of speech, he was probably employed by the armed forces. I am not an educated individual but I do know better than to challenge a government man.
We should be appreciative of Federer though, because we will never see anything like him again. The fact he can still compete for slams ever after the erosion of his physical skills is really a greater testament to the natural talent he has than the period of time when he was dominating the tour.
Obviously, you play a lot of mind games with yourself, but it is important to always believe that you can play your best, perform your best, and in the end, your convictions are stronger than your doubts.
