Extreme competitiveness, yes. Only there are many ways to be competitive. Some want more Rolexes, others want numbers, Rafa primarily wants to crush you as a roach on court.You're saying Rafa continues to wreck his body at 33 with his ridiculous playing style because he simply "loves to play and numbers are secondary ?"
Speaking of 'life goals', these are people who have been dedicating their lives & sacrificing, mentally and physically, to get better at a GAME.
Competitiveness is a significant part of human mentality, just try playing a Multiplayer video game. You'll often lose to better players, and feel some level of anger/offence, potentially towards your own teammates, nevermind the opponents. Now imagine that video game is your livelihood, with billions of people watching you.
LoL "ridiculous" is hearing someone who has probably never touched a tennis racket calling a 19 times GS champ's playing style "ridiculous".
