Roger Federer is one of those legendary sports people who does not need any introduction. Today he celebrates his 37th birthday. His forehand on the tennis court is the stuff of legends and his 20 singles grand slam titles are a evidence to his prowess in this field. So, here are some quotes about the greatest player in tennis history which show why he is the best ever.
"There is no way around hard work. Embrace it. You have to put in the hours because there’s always something which you can improve. "
"When you do something best in life, you don't really want to give that up – and for me it’s tennis."
"I think it's very hard for coaches to work with me. They'll no doubt have a good CV afterwards, but at the same time they're under a lot of pressure."
"There was a time where some players didn’t believe they could beat the top guys. So maybe there’s a little bit of a thing happening at the moment. I'm happy about that, that players believe they can beat the best on the biggest courts in the biggest matches."
"I'm a very positive thinker, and I think that is what helps me the most in difficult moments."
"What I think I've been able to do well over the years is play with pain, play with problems, play in all sorts of conditions."
"I always believe if you’re stuck in a hole and maybe things aren’t going well you will come out stronger. Everything in life is this way."
"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."
We wish him good luck in his game and a great year ahead. Stay tuned to Laughing Colours for the latest sports news and updates.
