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.

John McEnroe: from the autobiographical book “Seriously”

Until this very day, I often have the feeling that my name is written right on my forehead. It is difficult to walk along the street, wherever it is, without someone noticing me and not shouting, as if we were in fifth grade together.

In most cases, it’s nice. Of course, I can survive without being asked for an autograph in the middle of dinner. And in fact, I do not like to give autographs to those who are more than 11-12 years old. Well, what can my handwriting, like a chicken’s paw, give a person, if he is not a child – well, maybe, apart from money in the market for sports paraphernalia? And believe me, my signature is not that much worth it. I don’t get tired of such compliments. I feel proud that I deserve them. And I must admit it – some part of me is flattered by such attention.
