He’s one of the most-loved men in tennis.
He is a gentleman. He makes ball boys and ball girls laugh and cry with joy.
This year, he was almost written off as “too old” following six months out due to injury. Why was he injured? Because he hurt his knee giving his twin children a bath.
Now he’s gotten through to the semi-finals at the Australian Open in Melbourne… (Too old for what?)
As far as tennis stars and sporting icons go, you can’t get much better than Roger Federer. The beauty of his athleticism. The honourability of his sportsmanship. That’s why we want him to keep winning.
