Roger Federer turned professional in 1998 and has been ranked inside the top 10 tennis player since October 2002. He is simply the best and shares an Open Era record for most titles at Wimbledon with Pete Sampras and at the US Open with Jimmy Connors and Sampras. Wooow! However, he is also a clever person who knows about the risks of life. Our quote of the day is by Roger Federer because he is humble and prudent. What do you think? Tell us your opinion now!
“I’ve always been aware that the image you patiently construct for an entire career can be ruined in a minute. It scares you a bit, but that’s the way things are.”
Roger Federer ATP tournament records include winning a record six ATP World Tour Finals, playing in the finals at all nine ATP Masters 1000 tournaments, and having won the most prize money of any player in history.
“To handle that stardom, the red carpets, the photo shoots, people all of a sudden recognizing you and following you in everyday life, it’s a bit weird. It’s strange, and it can have funny effects on you in terms of do you like it or don’t you like it. Some people run away from it, some people embrace it; I found a good middle ground.”
Furthermore, he won the Olympic gold medal in doubles with Stan Wawrinka at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games and the Olympic silver medal in singles at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
“I don’t mind fans coming up in a friendly, respectful way. That’s all part of the fun of being a top tennis player. But if people take pictures without permission, particularly if my children are in the shot, I feel uncomfortable.”
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
