Roger Federer is on a roll these days. Even though he has not won any Grand Slams this season, he revealed he’s “quite happy” with the way he played in 2019. In a press meet during the ongoing exhibition tour across South America along with Alexander Zverev, when asked about who would be a perfect player, Federer opened his mind.
According to Roger, the perfect tennis player should have Fernando Gonzalez’s forehand, Mareclo Rios’ touch, John Isner or Pete Sampras’ serve, and Agassi or Djokovic’s backhand. “And the fighting spirit should be someone like Rafa’s (Rafael Nadal), Edberg’s or Laver’s volley, and Bjorn Borg’s calmness. I will not put myself,” added the 20-time Grand Slam winner.
Federer bagged four titles this year, including a Masters 1000 (Miami). When asked about his retirement, Federer said he has no intention of retiring and “in fact will never retire”, once again expressing his love for the game.
