'Roger Federer’s all set up with businesses', says legend

“Roger Federer has set himself up with business,” says the legend

Former Indian cricket team coach Ramji Srinivasan explained the similarities between Roger Federer and former Indian professional cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Ramji also revealed why Federer (and Dhoni) can make it seem like it’s easy to play like them.

“I would compare Dhoni directly to Federer. You can see a lot of similarities in terms of preparation. If you look at Federer, he makes things look very simple…his forehand or backhand, his drop shot, the serve and the volley, serve.

Everything seems very easy and effortless. But to make things look so easy, you have to work twice as hard as everyone else and it has to be smart work too,” Ramji Srinivasan was quoted as saying by Indian publication Pragativadi.

Roger Federer has not only been compared to Dhoni but also to basketball superstar Stephen Curry. Well-known photographer Radka Leitmeritz calls Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer “perfect” and “like a ballet dancer”

The Czech photographer has long devoted himself to fashion photography and recently switched to shooting on the tennis court. Speaking to Baseline magazine, Leitmeritz says, “I love photographing Roger, he’s like a ballet dancer.

He’s so perfect, his style of play is very photogenic. For me it’s amazing to be in the photographer’s pit, sometimes I think what the hell am I doing here?” Leitmeritz says Federer’s photo at the 2020 Australian Open for Racquet Magazine is one of her favorite photos.

Tennis legend Chris Evert reckons it will take Roger Federer a “Herculean effort” to make a comeback. “He’s got four kids and he has such a great life in Switzerland and he’s – he built it all with businesses.

And he’s just… it would take a Herculean effort to get back to the top, not even number one but back into the top five. I think that would be a Herculean feat, I really do,” said Evert. Evert believes that nothing decisive can be said about his retirement until he has played his first real tournament.

“I don’t know how he trains. I don’t know if he’s really eager and hungry or if he’s very content with the life he’s leading. I think we’ll be able to tell at the first tournament what he’s really going to play with him,” said Evert.

“But I do not know. I… like we said, to each their own. Everyone retires at their own time and for their own reasons.”
