Federer says he got in at 5am. "My head is ringing. I don't know what I did last night. I drank too many different types of drinks I guess."

ovo je intervju od ponedeljka, dosta pametnih stvari je rekao, o mladim igracima, njihovom stilu igre, uopste cinjenici da retko ko izlazi na mrezu, o sistemu poena tj. da je on dobijao bonus poene ako pobedi bolje rangirane igrace itd

odlican podcast, David Law prica od kad je prvi put video Rogera, a to je bilo jos 1998. u Gstaadu
znam da niko odavde nece slusati, ali ipak
evo nekih delova, kojih cak ni nema u podcastu
I forgot the Marat Safin vs. Roger Federer match in Rome 2001, a contest in which Federer recovered from a set down to win 7-6 in the third. It was mostly memorable for the racquet-smashing montage that an Italian television director put together, and the hilarity that Federer found in watching it while waiting to attend his press conference. Have a watch. Afterwards, Safin was asked about Federer’s future prospects alongside those of himself and Gustavo Kuerten. ‘You can’t compare him to us,” said Safin at the time. “Sure he’s talented and a nice guy, but we’ve won a Grand Slam. He hasn’t done anything.’ Oops.
There was the three-day ATP University that Federer, and all players ranked inside the World’s Top 100 for the first time, attended at the end of 1999. They were told about ATP rules, how to look after their bodies, how to look after their finances, and how to deal with the media. I wasn’t always sure Federer was listening to me and the other speakers, but just when he looked like he couldn’t be less interested if he tried, he would put his hand up and ask a pertinent question. The fact that he has never retired from a single one of his 1,358 matches to-date, has an array of blue-chip companies sponsoring him, and did 22 interviews after his latest Wimbledon win, suggests that he was taking in the important bits.
*Excruciating, but unavoidable name-drop coming up…* - you’ll hear, in the podcast, about the interview I did with Federer in Biel, Switzerland in September 2001. I didn’t mention that I asked him to demonstrate a forehand that he had given a signature name to - The Cliffhanger - basically an absurdly top-spun forehand (this was pre-Nadal) that would drop at the last second as if it had fallen off a cliff. He hit three of them in my direction. I top-edged the first into the roof of the indoor centre. I swung and missed at the second - an actual air-shot. The third bounded up at me like a dog that hadn’t seen its owner for a month. It hit me in the face. Our rivalry ended at that point.
I forgot to mention his teenage ability to compose text messages quicker than anyone I had ever seen. I forgot his voicemail prank where the caller hears his voice: ‘Hello?’, you start speaking, and then a recording of his voice continues “haha, got you, leave a message’. And I didn’t mention the time I became the target for Federer’s anger when a Swiss football player, Bernt Haas (his actual name) who played for West Bromwich Albion (my team) was given a red card in a Euro 2004 match against England. ‘West Brom don’t teach discipline!’, he shouted at me, the following day.
This is the Federer I knew before he became the Federer we all know, I suppose, and although I mostly only see him on telly and to ask the odd question to in a press conference or interview these days, from what I’ve seen, he hasn’t changed much at all. Very nice, decent person, sharp as a tack, loads of energy, practical joker, good sense of humour. Oh, and with other-worldly tennis talent, nerve, athleticism, dedication, enthusiasm.
