Roger Federer

Parents of Roger Federer decided to instill in their son a love of sport at an early age. So already at the age of three, the child picked up a tennis racket. Also, little Roger was involved in football and golf. And tennis happened only because the game went very easily with the boy. Roger could well have become a professional footballer, but, fortunately for millions of his fans, at age 12 he made the right choice, choosing tennis.

Pete Sampras about Andre Agassi

He was the most difficult opponent for me in that great summer of 1995 and again showed himself to be such at the very end of his and my career – in the climax of the evening quarter-finals of the 2001 Open Championship. This match was the crown of our rivalry, and for me – our greatest, most stubborn battle.

My rivalry with Andre is described in great detail and comprehensively. At heart, I knew that it was he who prompted me to demonstrate my best qualities. Andre survived the ups and downs – this explains why we did not meet more often, especially in the finals of major tournaments. But of all my rivals, he was the standard of the highest standard. No one except him could play at that pace throughout the match, Continue reading
