Over the past 15 years, Roger Federer, a 20-time Major winner, has served as an inspiration for numerous tennis players. Federer has had some gloomy times in the most trying situations over the years, just like any other competitor. Even yet, he generally maintains his composure when playing tennis and focusing on his opponent across the net.
This was not always the case, as evidenced by the fact that Roger’s behavior in his late adolescence would be hard to distinguish. Since the first junior competition matches, the Swiss had a volatile temper and threw rackets and had something to say about every point he lost.
In 2002, when discussing that phase of his career, Roger claimed that it took him years to begin progressing in that area. Before entering the ATP Tour, he tried to change the fact that he had to exert too much energy to battle himself.
Federer recalled those moments and added that his parents had advised him to alter his behavior or attend tournaments alone because they occasionally felt ashamed while watching him play. “I began playing tennis at the age of three, and when I was very young, I was constantly cursing, throwing rackets, and doing other inappropriate things on the court.
It took until I was 19 years old to start to progress in that area; in the past I used to complain about every point I lost, and I don’t know how I got over it. My parents were guilty and begged me to stop acting like this; otherwise they wouldn’t attend to tournaments with me again.
I’m peaceful now, and at Roland Garros and Wimbledon last year, I earned wonderful publicity for my behavior on court. Now I almost have to watch out not to appear too calm on the court, since I thought I was wasting too much energy by always being upset at myself “Roger Federer stated.

“Regardless of whether your favorite player. Roger’s matches are entertaining to watch if you love tennis and pay close attention to it. His commitment has astounded several generations with his brilliance. He taught us valuable life lessons as we grew up by overcoming obstacles and succeeding.
Above all things, he taught us respect and good sportsmanship. He demonstrated for us how you can ascend while keeping your feet on the ground. The synchronicity of the events has been exceptional. It was “unforgettable to be able to compete on the same courts,” she had wrote.
