Roger did not know how to restrain emotions, for any reason, throwing a racket against the ground, which, of course, did not help him to concentrate on the game. “I thought I should let out their anger that I play better then when I give vent to his feelings, – says Roger. – Now I understand that behaved like an idiot. In fact, I still get the precise moment when I hold the emotions inside. ”
Roger Federer, a superstar of world tennis, was born August 8, 1981 in Basel, Switzerland. His parents (father, we observe a native of South Africa, which is why tennis player insists on pronouncing his name not as Roger, and Roger) have decided to instill in him a love for the sport at an early age. So that in three years the child picked up a tennis racket. However, parents are not trying to make him certainly tennis. Little Roger and engaged in football, and golf. A tennis happened just because this game is easy to hurt the boy went. Interestingly, the most liked Roger struggled to thrash the ball – so that he was flying as low as possible over the net. As a result, many balls, of course, not only flew to the opposite half of the court. Then his coach, Sven Gryuneveld, went on a little trick: he began to pull the net a little higher – and thus taught his ward to apply precise strikes.
Specialists first talked about Federer in 1996, after a series of his brilliant victories at junior tournaments. All noted his excellent ability to move around the court and a powerful blow. And two years later, in 1998, Roger won first place in the world ranking juniors and won the Junior Wimbledon. Just a few days after his victory in London, he received a wild card into the tournament ATP «Swiss Open» and made his debut in professional tennis. The following year, Federer has entered the first hundred of the world rankings, but that its growth unexpectedly stalled. It turned out that tennis serious problems with the technique: he preferred to exchange blows on the back of the line and, in his own words, literally hated to go to the net. In addition, progress Federer prevented his stormy temperament: Roger did not know how to restrain emotions, for any reason, throwing a racket against the ground, which, of course, did not help him to concentrate on the game. “I thought I should let out their anger that I play better then when I give vent to his feelings, – says Roger. – Now I understand that behaved like an idiot. In fact, I still get the precise moment when I hold the emotions inside. ”
Fortunately, he found an experienced coach, Peter Lundgren, who was able to inspire Federer, what he needs to change in playing style and behavior. Success did not come immediately, but in February 2001, Federer has won his first adult tournament in Milan. And the press immediately named him player of the month. In the summer of the same year he came to Wimbledon where created a small sensation, winning in the fourth round of Pete Sampras. However, in the next match he lost to Briton Tim Henmanu.
Over the next two years, Federer has won eight tournaments, including one of a series of Masters, but he could not win in any Grand Slam tournament. Many people even thought that tennis star began to fade, but the summer of 2003, Federer played brilliantly at Wimbledon, beating Mark Philippoussis in the final.
The current 2004-th year, Federer had just brilliant: won the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. As a result, Roger led the world ranking of Tennis Professionals (based on the last 52 weeks) and the title race ATP (based on the results from the beginning of the year) and proved that last year’s triumph at Wimbledon was not a fluke. Federer shows superb tennis and literally smashing everyone. His victims have become Lleyton Hewitt, David Nalbandian, Marat Safin, Andy Roddick, the legendary Andre Agassi …
Develop the game, Roger seems decided to think about the financial side of his career. “My market value has increased significantly,” – last year said Federer. And he made a risky move: severed relations with the famous sports agency IMG. “Now I’m going to work with people whom I trust!” – Explained his action tennis journalists. It turned out that the terms of these people is narrow – tennis parents, his girlfriend Mirka Vavrinech and several accountants and lawyers. Together they formed the company «Hippo In-House Management». Parents are involved in the preparation and detailed checking of contracts, Mirka talk to the press and the fans, reserve hotels and flights, is side-commercial projects (Federer, for example, is going to produce its own line of perfumes). It is interesting that the very professional tennis player Mirka and Roger do business only because now recovering from injury. In turn, in love with Mirka Federer (their affair lasted for three years) is also ready to exploit, once remarked that if he gets hurt, then it can become press secretary girlfriend.
Of course, the majority of sports agencies about their own businesses tennis player spoke clearly: they say, will soon go bankrupt Federer. However, while Roger feels pretty good: only the amount of the award has already exceeded $ 11 million.
