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.

Interestingly, Roger liked best of all to hit the ball – so that he flew as low as possible above the net. As a result, many balls, of course, simply did not fly to the opposite half of the court. Then his coach, Sven Gruneweld, went to a little trick: he began to pull the net a little higher – and, thus, taught his ward to deliver accurate punches. Specialists first spoke about Federer in 1996, after a series of brilliant victories in junior tournaments. Everyone noted his ability to move perfectly on the court and a powerful blow.

The first major successes at the junior level came to Federer after 2 years, in 1998. This year, Roger won Continue reading

Pete Sampras – The Legend of Tennis

Multiple winner of Grand Slam tournaments, for several years was the first racket of the world. The future champion was born in Washington on August 12, 1971 in a Greek family. His father, Soterios Sampras, worked as an engineer, his mother did not work, she was a housewife. Parents called son Petros. Pete’s father was a big fan of tennis and spent his free time on the court with pleasure. When the boy was 7 years old, his father began to teach him how to play tennis. The intense game sometimes ended in a swoon, because Pete has a rare disease associated with a lack of iron in the blood. However, the disease did not prevent him from making a brilliant, dizzying career as one of the most successful and famous tennis players of the 90s of the twentieth century. When Pete was 9 years old, his doctor and amateur player Pete Fisher became his coach at the request of his father. The coach was happy to work with a capable student and managed to instill in the young tennis player the style that later became Sampras’s hallmark. The style contained elements of an aggressive game with lightning fast outputs to the grid. At the age of 14, Sampras, on the advice of a trainer, changed the two-handed left punch to the famous one-handed one in the future. At major children’s tournaments, Sampras was rarely the winner, as the coach Continue reading
