Swiss tennis player Roger Federer told about which players were his idols in his youth.
“At the very beginning it was Boris Becker. I was fascinated by tennis in his performance. However, then everyone around became fans of Edberg. He also showed a very cool game. After they both finished their careers, I began to follow Pete Sampras.
However, on I have no idols at the moment. He did not try to imitate or copy someone else’s blows. I was repeatedly compared with Sampras. Probably due to the fact that we had the same suppliers of rackets and uniforms. My strengths have always been a forehand and a good pitch, as well as the ability to read the game, “- says Federer Tennis World.
