“It’s The Kids Making Me Crazy” – Roger Federer–All You Need To Know–

Published

If there’s one thing that the quarantine has done, it’s bringing back families together. People who are so immersed in their professional commitments in a modern world had no chance to interact with their loved ones. The same was true of a tennis player on tour around the year like Roger Federer.

 

 

Even though he has four kids, the Swiss maestro rarely gets time to be around them. That comes with the hectic schedule of tennis. Even though Roger has chosen to drastically reduce his commitments in the past few years to spend more time with his family.

However, never would he have imagined that a situation would arise where he would live with his family for such an extended period of time. It seems like Mirka and the kids have a dad around these days. Let’s find out what Roger had to say about being with the kids for a longer time than usual.

What did Roger Federer say about spending more time with his kids?
Roger Federer revealed that his kids were actually making him crazy after all this time. That’s certainly a sentiment that can resonate with many people.

Even though kids are cute generally, they can really make you sit with your hands on your head when they are not in the mood. The interviewer asked whether the kids were making Roger crazy or it was the other way around.

“That’s a good question. I think it’s the kids making me crazy. But it’s all good because we spend so much time together.”

That’s obviously something he’s saying jokingly. Anyone who follows Roger Federer knows how much he cherishes his kids. Even if they are making him crazy, he’s dying to spend this much needed time with them. Once tennis restarts, it will be in full swing again. This is the only time he has to feel what full-fledged family life can mean for a player like him.

Novak Djokovic Set to Surpass Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in Another Elite Record

Published

on

All in all, it has been another fabulous year for World No.1 Novak Djokovic. One Grand Slam title, two Masters 1000 titles and he has consolidated his position at the number one spot in the ATP rankings. Djokovic is eyeing another record that he could match at the end of the 2020 season.

Djokovic now will most likely match Pete Sampras’ record of having the most number of year-end World No.1. Sampras has held the year-end number one ranking six times in his career. The ‘big 3’ of Novak DjokovicRafael Nadal, and Roger Federer are tied with five. So Djokovic could jump his arch-rivals and go equal with Sampras.

The Serbian jumped Nadal in the rankings early on in the season. After a bad Australian Open, Nadal lost a considerable amount of points and Djokovic won the Australian Open which helped him regain the number one ranking. After the season restart, Djokovic won the Cincinnati Masters which earned him points. Later he added the Italian Open and then by reaching the finals at French Open 2020, it helped Djokovic forge a huge gap from second-place Rafael Nadal. Djokovic is currently on 11,740 points to Nadal’s 9850.

Last year it was Nadal who held the year-end number one ranking which tied him level with Federer and Djokovic. Surprisingly Federer held the year-end number one ranking back in 2009 and since has reached the World No.1 ranking but has failed to stay on it till the end of the season.

Barring 2016, the big 3 have held the year-end number one ranking since 2004. In 2016 after a magical year from Andy Murray, the Brit held the number one ranking for the first time and ended the season ranked number one. He had won 9 titles including one Grand Slam title and he retained his Olympic gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

With the year-end number one ranking almost a certain for Djokovic, the Serbian has a longer goal of surpassing Federer’s record of most weeks as World No.1. Djokovic is into his 291st week as World No.1 and he is just 19 short of Federer’s 310.
