What does Roger Federer do when he is at home? The Swiss player is very useful for his wife Mirka and the whole family organization, despite he has some defects too. ‘I don’t know how to cook’, Federer admitted. ‘When I retire, I would like to learn.
Cooking and skiing, that’s what I will do. There was always someone else cooking instead of me. At home, I am the one who clears and cleans the disasters made by children. One day I will cook for them.’ What is the rivalry match in tennis history that Federer would have liked to see live by paying the ticket? In May in Paris, the Swiss revealed it. ‘It would have been beautiful to see (Bjorn) Borg against (Pete) Sampras’, the 36-year-old said.
‘Sampras was my hero when I was growing up, Borg was unique because he made tennis popular. His story is even more fascinating because he retired early. He was the best teenager ever. With (Rafael) Nadal.’ Federer is a fair play lover: ‘In the years when I was being coached by Tony Roche, I was meeting his older friends, people who made history, and so he was telling me about Borg, (Arthur) Ashe and (Yannick) Noah’s lives.
So I learned, I fell in love with Rod Laver, who is the one we have to thank for the transition to professional tennis. I joined the Laver Cup organization, our earnings come from him.
