About Roger Federer writing his own biography after he retires: I have often wondered if Roger will write an autobiography after he retires. His fans and the press make him sound a lot more threatening than he is. Thank you very much Ryan, hope you love it. Also you can do it for yourself because you can prove that your own tennis can play against the top player in the world.
That was a pretty nice moment also because it was only my first year at the high level playing the big tournaments. So that was a nice moment. I like to remember the time we played at the U. Open because that was a close match, at least close to winning one set. So I was very close there. Because you have a lot of those guys you barely see and they barely talk to you. That makes him a pretty good person I think. And I was just surprised. Because, for me, it was the first time I was at that stage in the tournament.
All the press work with all the interviews and everything. At that point, that was the first time that happened to me, so it was very tough for me. On the other hand, I just saw him and he was doing the same thing. And I guess he was doing that everyday. I was just asking how he does it. It was pretty nice to speak with him.
I mean, he could have not answered to me, because we played each other the next day. It was a nice memory.
And everybody was talking about this Federer guy being the next No. And I just remember that the racquet flew everywhere on the court [laughs]. He threw his racquet like almost every point he lost.
That was pretty funny. I remember watching that match.
Open Q Federer ——————————-. This is the day.
Dominik Hrbaty: He was comparable to Marcelo Rios, very talented, he has great hands, but the difference was Roger had the big serve, big return. He could make winners out of anything basically. And even out of defense. And Roger is just one of a kind. If you can beat him you become a part of the history of tennis. And if you beat him, everybody says Wow, congratulations.
You make the news. All the friends suddenly text you. Also you can do it for yourself because you can prove that your own tennis can play against the top player in the world. And this is the point of tennis. And people are looking to you, that you are the one that can play tennis. But there was also one in Wimbledon that was our last meeting. Because I beat him two times before. We were very good friends with Roger and he was always joking about when he was going to beat me.
And in Wimbledon, that match, we sit on the bench together, which is very unusual. On the last changeover I came over and sat with him. So this is the day. My new book about Roger Federer. I love Tursunov. Congratulations on the book being ready to put out there.
THanks Dan, I was elated during this interview with Tursunov. I spotted him hitting with a junior on the practice court at the Sony Open this year and while they were picking up balls he was at the net post and I by the fence so I asked him for his Fed memories for this book and to my surprise he was into it and stopped and proceeded to give me this five minutes of gold for my tape, totally off the cuff and spontaneous.
So nice to see him having a big year this year.
Looks like a fascinating book, Scoop. Just ordered mine from Amazon UK. Thank you very much Ryan, hope you love it. Welcome to the site. Terrific Read. Depending on when you release this book, I might have a 4th book to juggle. Credit to him his brain unfreezes after the brain fart. How can you not be in awe of such a Genius. Thank you Roger, you are enjoying three fantastic books now.
Facing Federer is actually out now Kindle not yet. I think you will enjoy it also. Take your time there are so many terrific tennis books to read, also older ones from decades ago. Rafa has even said as late as 08 that Federer does everything better than him, every shot. Rafa conquered Fed the first time they ever played in Miami, so this has helped Rafa a lot mentally in their rivalry.
Thanks again Roger and welcome to the site. Thanks Scoop for your reply.
I will defintely have this on my reading list! Thanks for the welcome. You guys do great work on the tennis front and as I try to get my site sportzcosmos up and running, I can appreciate the effort it takes to have a great tennis site! Keep up the great work guys!
Thank you Roger. You will certainly learn some new and interesting information about Roger Federer from my book, from the players and other sources. Will look at your new site, and respond about it. A book of what people connected to tennis have to say about Roger … this is such a great idea! He justified his wildcard by beating much higher ranked Igor Kunitsyn in the first round. Niemeyer spent his formative years, more than ten years ago, at Middle Tennessee State University where he spent four years playing tennis before turning pro, perhaps being easily their best player.
He claims he knew Federer was going to be good, even back then. As they played game after game, Niemeyer kept even, eventually forcing a tiebreak which eventually fell to an error. The focus of a champion allows him to work his way to tough games, seeking the tiniest of opportunities, a tiny slip where he can take the edge.
Federer and Niemeyer played even early on before Federer eventually secured the break and the match. Niemeyer may have lost early once again, but much like Santoro, his memory of one of his best matches ever might be a loss. Although we hardly knew you, Mr. Cheers, mate, you done good.
