I never stopped believing

What can be said about Federer that hasn't already? He is pure, unadulterated class. The fact he also appears to be a very self-effacing and humble individual, despite all his immense achievements, is really the measure of the man. Frankly, he puts countless other supposed sports stars to state of being questioned!!

I hope that the people that usually say Federer should retire are ashamed of themselves right now!

This man is the reason why tennis has become my favourite sport, sometimes I just feel short of superlatives and adjectives to describe him, so I better don't use any of them now ..

Only one man conquered Roger from beginning till end .. i.e. Nadal ... but still, Nadal didn't managed to achieve so many other things that Roger achieved

... he is truly the GOAT with an only scar in his achievements in terms of Nadal .... just like moon has a scar too .... maybe it was necessary for motivation to become better and better.

Now, Federer and I have similiar dreams,Singles Golden Medal in London, SW19 ..

One thing about Federer's record is that it never tells the whole story. The style he plays is even more sublime than his slam count. And while someone may possibly exceed Fed's slam tally....I am pretty certain his tennis beauty will never be beaten.

his style...absolute beauty. thats the thing I fear. I am afraid tennis will loose half of its beauty when this great man retires...!!

future following federer--deluding djoker

Prior to the start of Wimbledon 2012, I predicted that an early exit for Nadal is overdue. But, even I did not expect him to so be eliminated this early.

Now, I wish to say that Djokovic has reached the Final of the last 4 Grand Slam events (Wimbledon & US Open 2011, Australian Open and French Open 2012) and as per the law of average, it is time for him to fail to reach the Final now. Further, Djokovic won their last 2 meetings (one by accident - USO 2011) and again as per law of average, he is bound to lose to Federer now. Though I am a staunch Federer fan, I admit that it will be a tough match for Federer. But, he has the will and talent to clinch the match with tough battle.

I will give a title for the forthcoming Semi-Final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic : A match between EGO AND EAGER. Djokovic should have EGO as the current world # 1 & Defending Champion and Federer must be EAGER to regain the World # 1 and for claiming his 17th Major title.

Come On Roger! Go grab it!

Should Federer beat Djokovic and go onto lift his 17th major trophy he will regain No. 1 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings on Monday. Federer has been World No. 1 for 285 weeks, one week shy of all-time record-holder Pete Sampras on 286 weeks.

Federer fifth for Forbes

Forbes Magazine has identified Roger Federer as the fifth highest paid athlete in the world. Forbes estimated that Federer earned $52.7m in total earnings in the past year, with $45m of that coming from endorsements.

“Federer has the most impressive endorsement portfolio in sports, with nine sponsors that collectively pay him more than $30 million annually, including long-term deals with Nike, Rolex, Wilson and Credit Suisse,” writes Forbes.

“He also commands more than $1 million per exhibition event. Federer is widely perceived as the greatest tennis player ever. He holds the records for most singles Grand Slam wins (16) and career prize money ($71 million). He appeared in a staggering 18 out of 19 Grand Slam finals between 2005 and 2010.”

World No. 2 Rafael Nadal is 16th in the Forbes list with an estimated $33.2 million in earnings, including $25 million in endorsements.

Ahead of the 30-year-old Federer in the list of the World’s 100 Highest-Paid Athletes, are No. 1 Floyd Mayweather (total earnings: $85m), No. 2 Manny Pacquiao ($62m), No. 3 Tiger Woods ($59.4m) and No. 4 LeBron James ($53m).

Federer in for no 1

Wimbledon is shaping as a battleground for the World No. 1 ranking, with Novak Djokovic ,Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer all in contention to hold top spot after The Championships.

Djokovic, who has held the No. 1 South African Airways ATP Ranking since July 4, 2011 after winning his first Wimbledon title, must reach the final to ensure that he remains ahead of his rivals. Because of his stunning start to the 2011 season, when Djokovic headed into Wimbledon with a 41-1 match record, the Serb has had a mountain of points to defend during the first half of this year. Although he defended his Australian Open and Sony Open Tennistitles, those have been Djokovic’s only triumphs of the season; in 2011 he won seven crowns during the same period.

Federer can retake No. 1 if he wins the Wimbledon title and Djokovic does not advance beyond the semi-finals. It has been more than two years Roland Garros 2009) since Federer last held top dog status on the ATP World Tour. He enjoyed a 48-week run at World No. 1 the last time, taking the top ranking back from Nadal following his 2009 triumph. He first ascended to No. 1 on February 2004 and held the position for a record 237 consecutive weeks. All up, the Swiss has held the No. 1 ranking for 285 weeks during his career, just one week shy of Pete Sampras all-time record of 286 weeks.

Nadal, who ceded the No. 1 ranking to Djokovic when he lost the Wimbledon final last year, can reclaim top spot if he wins The Championships for a third time and the Serb does not go beyond the quarter-finals.

Federer has vaulted back into contention for No. 1 after a strong finish to last season and an impressive 2012 campaign. Last year Federer lost to Djokovic in the semi-finals of US Open (after holding two match points) and won his last three tournaments of the year: Basel, The ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title in Paris and the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. In his nine tournaments this year Federer has failed to reach the semi-finals or better only once (Miami) and has won four events: ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles in Indian Wells and Madrid, and ATP World Tour 500 titles in Rotterdam and Dubai.

The table below shows how many South African Airways ATP Rankings points each player will have after 2012 based on which round he reaches.

Haas prevents Federer's 7th Halle

Tommy Haas defeated second seedRoger Federer 7-6 (7/5), 6-4 to win Gerry Weber Open, Halle on Sunday.

It was Gerry Weber Open record champion Federer who made the better start. Haas, who like his Swiss opponent had only had his serve broken once on the way to the final, lost his very first service game, but at 3-1 down, he started to find his way into the match. In the fifth game, he crowned his comeback by breaking back to make it 3-3, and from that moment on, he was the most aggressive player. Haas to k more risks while the World Rankings number three committed more and more unenforced errors and had to defend the first two set points. The decision was then made in a tie break when Haas, was forced onto the back foot again, but after another rousing comeback, he converted his fourth set point.

Federer tried to raise the tempo in the second set. In the second game, the Swiss failed to take two break points and then he struggled more on his own serve than the German. The logical conclusion was that Haas broke to make it 5-4 at the end of one of the most spectacular rallies. Subsequently, the Wimbledon semi-finalist from 2009 held his nerve, served with the same consistency and benefited from one of the many unenforced errors from Federer to win his first match point. But Federer was a fair loser.

After claiming the title Haas said: "This has been one of the best weeks of my career, but I reckon I won't really appreciate what's happened until this evening.

"If someone had said to me beforehand that I was going to beat Roger Federer, probably the best player of all time, I would have thought they were mad!"

Federer was magnanimous in defeat, saying: "Tommy has performed well throughout, I'm thrilled for him. I knew that it would be a tough match. To begin with, I wasted a few chances, but it was still a great week for me. Tommy was the better player after that and he deserves this win, truly."

Federer has already enjoyed a memorable week at the German town in North Rhine-Westphalia after the main pathway up to the tennis stadium was named after him.

The 16-times grand slam champion is unlikely to be too concerned about failing to clear the final hurdle here as he would have fine-tuned his game for Wimbledon during the four matches he has played here.

Federer edges at Garry Weber near to 7th WIMBLEDON

I have been following Roger’s progress at Halle over the last week and I am delighted at what I have seen. Not that I ever doubted him. I saw a lot of negativity from fans after the French Open which was unnecessary. I never felt Roger was going to win the French Open or even make the final. The hunt for major #17 really starts here. I felt it was important that he did well at Halle after the French Open just because people were starting to write him off like they usually do when he doesn’t win everything in sight.

The match against Raonic was always gonna be key. He was probably the most dangerous player in the draw after Nadal. Roger lost the first set in a tie break but got the break right away in the second set. Then it was just a question of holding serve to even things up at a set all. The third set went to a tie break again and this time Roger got the job done pretty comfortably. It was a serving contest and one that Roger simply had to win. Losing to Raonic after the French Open would have been almost a disaster. It’s amazing how Roger keeps beating these youngsters. He showed once again that Roger 3.0 went nowhere and that the ability to win the close matches is still there.

People just overreact way too easily. The big surprise of the tournament was of course that Nadal lost to Kohlschreiber in the quarters. Big upset. That pretty much gave Roger the title as long as he got past Raonic. Roger beat Youzhny easily today as the win against Raonic would have given him a lot of confidence. He will face Haas in the final who I am glad to see doing so well after time out of the sport. So I feel Roger pretty much has this title in the bag now. One more match but he should be able to take care of business. If he does so it would be just what was needed at this point. In a sense the French Open was a disappointment and needed to be put behind him.

Well Roger has lost Halle now and will be a strong favorite for Wimbledon. I said before that the US Open might be his best chance at a slam this year but we all know how special Wimbledon is for Roger. It is where he won his first slam and it would be peRFect if he can possibly win his last slam there and equal Sampras’ seven Wimbledon titles. I say ‘possibly’ because he can still win more than one slam if he keeps 3.0 level up. Well it’s been nice catching up with you guys. Happy the clay court season is behind us and that we are onto the grass!!

Religious Experience

"If you've never seen [Roger Federer] play live, and then do, in person, on the sacred grass of Wimbledon, ... you are apt to have what one of the tournament's press bus drivers describes as a "bloody near-religious experience." It may be tempting, at first, to hear a phrase like this as just one more of the overheated tropes that people resort to to describe the feeling of Federer Moments. But the driver's phrase turns out to be true — literally, for an instant ecstatically." -- David Foster Wallace, from the special to New York Times' Play Magazine, "Roger Federer as Religious Experience"

"To bear witness ... is to evoke some sort of spiritual experience that occurs only a handful of times in a lifetime - if you're lucky. To try to describe the way Federer plays tennis is like trying to describe how Nureyev danced or Heifetz played the violin. Common words or images cannot do justice." --The Age

"Part of the pleasure of the Federer experience comes from watching people watch him. On Sunday, a spectator is propelled by awe out of his seat when confronted by a short cross-court forehand that lands and runs almost parallel to the net. Later, a fellow simply bows in Federer's direction, as if applause is an unsatisfactory response. ... Some sigh, exhale, cry "Oh my God". It is an opera of exclamation. Cynics who believe they have seen everything need to watch Federer. ... How, how, we ask, as if mind is still disputing what the eyes have seen. With other players, even in other sports, we sometimes see their shots as beautiful, we wish we could play like that. With Federer we accept almost that we can never play like that, his shots arrive from another dimension, it is too much to wish for." -- Rohit Brijnath, The Hindu

Fed-Ex Testifies

Most of us suspected whether , Roger has something left in his scabbard, an extreme dominance at the 2012 Madrid Open has shown there is still ginormous fighting spirit left in the future Hall of Famer.

As scary as it was to watch Federer lose the first set, his utter domination of Tomas Berdych through the final two sets proves just how talented he still is. Berdych is much younger than Fed-Ex, but Federer's undeniable ability to maintain his stellar play is the reason he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Despite complaints from every major star on the tour, Federer has kept his outlook on the blue-clay courts positive and he obviously benefited from that mental peace.

about playing on the blue court

“If you want to be a good claycourt player, you must be able to play everywhere. It is slippery, there's no doubt about that but that has been the case here for a few years. They haven't yet found the perfect balance. Our job each day is to adapt to the conditions that we face.”

Yet another class move by Federer who has been accused of pandering to the media by his fellow players. Instead of burying the court and conforming to how his fellow players act, he simply calls it how he saw it and rolled with the punches.

Maybe that’s why he is the greatest player on the tour right now and one of the greatest ever; while the other players complaining are simply not.

While a win at the 2012 Madrid Open doesn’t guarantee a great year on tour, it shows that he is on the right track and far from ready to retire.

Roger and his Destiny with Tennis

I saw Roger and his destiny with tennis.
No matter how much Roger has accomplished and what achievements and hardware he has acquired, there are critics everywhere ready to pounce on him the moment he loses a Slam or a tournament, and the GOAT (greatest of all time) debate begins immediately. Some have even suggested that he needed psychological counseling because he lost Wimbledon a couple of years ago.
His fans never question who the GOAT is, because in our hearts, it’s Roger Federer. I think he has been voted Fan Favorite 9 years in a row now. It’s a record no one can beat. Fans have a totally different view of Roger than the critics. We tend to grieve in private when he loses and we jump for joy when he wins. We write on his website to encourage him or congratulate him. We write on his Facebook wall to lift his spirits or share his happiness. We pray for him. We ask the angels to protect him. We write each other for comfort and consolation after he loses or share our absolute delight when he wins.

He was voted fan favorite 8 times out of 9 years. The year, ranked number three in the world, he is still voted fan favorite by fans, and voted sportmanship award by fellow players.

He is considered the greatest of all time by fans, that's all, no matter what others think.
It is interesting to me that many artists have understood the fans’ perception of Roger, not just as a great tennis player but as a wonderful human being. They seem to understand and thus are able to capture how we feel about Roger in their sculptures or photographs.
During the 2007 Tennis Masters Cup in Shanghai, artists created the best 8 tennis players competing that year as Terracotta Warriors. They were truly wonderful to behold, and each warrior stood with a tennis racquet in hand as their weapon of choice. They were great visual symbols of what would take place during that week. Roger was the victorious warrior that year.
What I have learned from Roger Federer this year is that he doesn’t concern himself with what commentators and critics say about him. He may not have had a spectacular year by his own standards but he always listens to his own heart that tells him “I am passionate about tennis; I believe in myself and I can still win!” It is a lesson not just for tennis but for life.

Roger Federer -A Champion's Cry

We all cried with you..

I WASN'T much of a Roger Federer fan. Well, that was until the Australian Open tennis final 2009. Until AFTER the final, to be exact. In fact, as an admirer of Pete Sampras, whose astonishing record of 14 Grand Slam titles was in danger of being broken by the Swiss player, I was quietly hoping Rafael Nadal would put Federer to the sword on Sunday, which is what happened.

When Federer's last shot sailed long to give Nadal the elusive Australian Open title, I was satisfied. But I had no idea what was to follow. I had no idea, most of all, that tears could also be a man's most powerful weapon.

Don't get me wrong. I liked Barack Obama's presidential inauguration spectacular, and I thought his speech was inspirational and simply great. But boy, maybe only Roger Federer can sweep you off your feet with just a couple of sentences and a couple of teardrops.

The tennis showdown was up there with the best sporting encounters in history.

But to me, the real "moment" of the Australian Open final came after the match was over. And it wasn't even when Federer tried unsuccessfully to fight back tears. The guy is well known for crying easily and his fans are no strangers to his outbreaks of emotion.

This time it was rather different, though. His were not tears of joy because he was on the losing end of a major final he wanted so much to win. He approached the microphone during the trophy presentation ceremony trying very hard not to cry. He even said a few words to loosen himself up and distract his own heavy heart. When someone in the audience shouted, "We love you!", his efforts at self-control were in vain.

Speechless and choked with emotion, there was no way in the world Federer could utter a word to the crowd without crumbling like a heartbroken schoolgirl on her best friend's shoulder.

The organisers decided to let him retreat and have Nadal, the winner, address the spectators first. (For a few seconds I had this scary feeling that Nadal, who was looking emotional himself, might be infected and break down, too. That would have turned a beautiful, touching moment into something a bit ridiculous. I mean, two heartthrob athletes crying at the end of a Grand Slam final? That would be one man too many.

But Federer, who started it, rescued it. And he did so graciously. As the organisers were looking rather awkward and unsure after handing Nadal the trophy, Federer stepped up toward the microphone. "Let me try again," he said. "I don't want to have the last word; this guy deserves it." With that, he had me. What can I say? We have all been in situations where everyone wants to have the last word and opponents are there to be humbled, not respected. Federer showed us the soft side of a man and his sense of sportsmanship and fair play at the same time. It's easy to praise your rivals when you are on the winning side; handling a devastating defeat in such a manner is different.

The five-set Australian Open final took our breath away. Federer was absolute tennis poetry in motion, and Nadal's extension of his mastery of clay to other surfaces continues to amaze the world.

It was the kind of game you didn't really want either man to lose; a classic clash of different skills that were equally superb; a demonstration of unbelievable composure and stamina; and a great example of what healthy and constructive rivalry can give us.

Without Federer, Nadal would not be where he is, and vice versa. That must have been the thought on Federer's mind when he decided that, despite the trophy and fan's deafening roars of approval, Nadal's deserved honour would not have been complete without the most important element - true respect from his fiercest rival.

Like someone said, the two players are becoming the best things in tennis since the racket itself. That's surely arguable, but we can't take anything away from the touching and inspiring drama that happened after the game. For more than four hours, the two men played like battling angels unleashing balls of fire against each other, nothing on their minds except victory at the other's expense.

But in the end the rivals became a pair, and glided down to earth to show us the good side of human beings.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

ROGER FEDERER his life beyond tennis and manifestation

A description of Roger's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Roger Federer comes across, the face he shows to the world. This page describes the disguise Federer wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.

Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Roger Federer always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Federer will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.

Roger Federer has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Roger Federer also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Federer's environment is very important to Federer.

Federer steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Roger Federer tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Roger rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well. Others see Roger Federer as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Federer has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Roger may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support. He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life. He is assertive and bold. Roger Federer is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Roger generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Roger Federer's boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.

Roger Federer has a radiant, winning personality and others see him as a person used to achieving success. , Roger Federer is broadminded and is willing to give others the benefit of the doubt. He is helpful and tolerant as long as his moral and ethical standards are respected.

Others may see Roger as a cool, reserved and unapproachable person, perhaps as a result of his conservative and stern upbringing. Roger Federer may feel that no one understands him and tends to isolate himself from others.
Roger has good organization skills and he knows how to arrange everything skillfully. Happy in teamwork and adept at negotiating, he can lead successful business meetings. Roger Federer can easily obtain all the information he needs in order to make the best deal. Federer is likely to go his own way in life and he has a tendency to stay secluded from others. Roger Federer is always preoccupied with his own thoughts and ideas and gives other people the impression that he does not want to be bothered with their problems.

Roger Federer has a strong need to influence others and to dominate his home or environment. He is likely to join associations with large groups of people and some of Federer's relationships will be very important to him and possibly affect his future.

Roger Federer: Humility vs. Pride

Federer has the career that has launched a thousand articles. His legacy leaves nothing left to prove, except to himself.

His long-term dominance is over, but he knows he can still taste Grand Slam victory a few more times. He knows the journey and its demands, and that his mental commitment must drive him to a career renaissance.

Federer knows to avoid the vanities of his great achievements. They will not serve him in winning his next title and conquering his two great rivals. There is no place for arrogance, even though he once brought the sport to its knees. Even the mighty Roger cannot outlast the game.

Instead, he has turned to a peaceful commitment in his efforts. He has appreciated his success with self-stated confidence, not demanding or expecting the tennis gods to entitle him with undeserved victory.

He is playing tennis with the humility of a wise champion. He respects the time he has to play now, and he will prepare himself to be worthy of every challenge.

Federer is playing excellent tennis, but there is something different about his confidence. It’s as apparent as the upgrade to his efficient backhand.

He is still the master, with his variegated array of shots and angles, and his court sense and acumen has not diminished a whit.

His aura sparkles with each crisp forehand, and there is an unshakable undertone and belief to his game.

Springtime has arrived in Miami, and Federer’s game may signal a rebirth of another glorious tennis season for the maestro. Whether he seizes this title or not, he is ready to battle with a sense of pride and strength that has always characterized the great ones.


A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle is to be produced. Mayhap he posses excessively forest green as his masque,a versatile artillery as though a Mark I trench knife with its unbounded and baneful service.

Aristotle is from the Hellenic era and antecede the rebirth by several centuries, but this artificer-thinker-mathematician certainly barracked the tetrad.

Federer’s record is novel, as he is the one who has accomplished three Grand Slams or more at three different venues. His CV(curriculum vitae :)) is cognized for its balance of ascendance with 6 Wimbledon, 5 U.S. Open, and 4 Australian Open titles, and with a French Open title. His tennis virtuoso and skillfulness have been well documented and appraised.

Aristotle was an archetype philosopher in the arenas lying in the domain from politics to ethics to astronomy. He even interrelated Alexander the Great. Federer is the touchstone of tennis brainy and creativity and will be scoped throughout the world.

Multi Suface Master

Roger Federer is determined for Grand Slam victories, and has been quested by rivals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
While each of these magnanimous three has testified their dominance in winning Slams and retaining the no. 1 ranking, a nigher scrutiny shows that only Federer has been capable to dominate on two surfaces.
In addition, there are a smatter legends who also showed greater dual-surface domination than Nadal and Djokovic.
Dominating one surface or venue is most impressive, but dominating two surfaces is masterful.
There are only five true dual-surface masters since Tennis’s open era renaissance.

One-Handed Backhands Conquerer

The ground strokes of Swiss legend Roger Federer have put him up there with the greatest players of all time, and his one-handed backhand is no exception.
Fed has always been able to leave crowds in awe with his ability to place backhands anywhere on the court and with any kind of spin that he wants, especially from the backhand side.
As good as his forehand is, his one-handed backhand is arguably the most impressive part of his game, and it has helped to establish him as (potentially) the GOAT[Greatest Of All Time].

Roger Federer - Hall of Fame

Roger Federer’s remarkable career is on its evenfall, sadly for his fans no o ne can embark his elegance in universe for his capability of playing in the same level with coherent class and artistry.As remanant remains, people coginates what else the necromancer is capable of executing on the tennis courts before hanging his rackets.Most people, especially those in their right frame of mind, who love the sport and understand a little bit of it, cheer for a late career run from the great Swiss
