Roger Federer Best Quotes of All Time

Here are some amazing quotes to ponder from Swiss professional tennis player Roger Federer.

“There will never be a rivalry like ours. Not even that between Borg and McEnroe, despite their different personalities and one being left-handed and the other right-handed. Murray and Djokovic are very similar. Rafa and I are extreme opposites and that’s what the fans like so much. Our rivalry isn’t over, I’m sure it will be back, I miss it.” – Roger Federer

“Winning or losing, it’s always something special and something you’ll remember, even more so when the match was as dramatic as it was today. It’s even more memorable when I see my kids there with my wife and everything. That’s what touched me the most, to be quite honest. The disappointment of the match itself went pretty quickly.” – Roger Federer

“Yeah, I mean, true, Rafa played terribly lately; Soderling is not a threat either. He’s got an easy ride to this victory, that’s for sure. Djokovic can’t play tennis anymore it seems like. Got to make your own work, please. Respect the players. Obviously Andy is a fantastic player and he’s got all the chances to win here. We all know that.” – Roger Federer

“I know the occasion and how big it was for Andy and myself. I’m happy I got a victory today, but obviously it was a very, very special…Yeah, I mean, honestly this one hasn’t quite sunk in yet for some reason. I guess I was trying to be so focused in the moment itself that when it all happened I was just so happy, you know, that it was all over and that the pressure was, you know, gone basically.” – Roger Federer

“He’s a nice guy, the umpire, so I kind of like to talk to him at times.” – Roger Federer

“When you do something best in life, you don’t really want to give that up – and for me it’s tennis.” – Roger Federer

“You can be stubborn and successful or you can give it up a bit and change things around. For me it’s important to have a bit of both.” – Roger Federer

“Success is a nice thing because it always means you’ve taken a step forward and it gives you a sense of pride, which in turn gives you confidence and experience-a positive circle, so to speak.” – Roger Federer

“The week before the (US Open) I gave a few interviews for CNN, USA Network, New York Times, USA Today and Sports Illustrated which had been arranged beforehand. The reason for giving these interviews is not only because working with the media is just part of the job, it is much more my desire to contribute to the promotion of tennis in the U.S.” – Roger Federer

Roger Federer Quotes About Hard Work

Here are some motivational quotes about hard work from Swiss professional tennis player Roger Federer.

“Tennis can be a very frustrating sport. You have to put in the hours because there is always something you can improve. [Y]ou have to put in a lot of sacrifice and effort for sometimes little reward but you have to know that, if you put in the right effort, the reward will come.” – Roger Federer

“There is no way around the hard work. Embrace it.” – Roger Federer

“I haven’t had a cramp since ’99. That was my only time, in Davis Cup, when I was panicky. I was young. I’m very proud of that. Never pulled out. Never had cramps. Never lost very much because of fitness, especially later on in my career where I knew I’ve put in the hard work. I’ve done that. I’ve been very fortunate and clever as well to understand how I need to work, when I need to work. So I’m very happy to have stayed injury free for so long. I hope I can still maintain a few good years on the tour. I really hope so.” – Roger Federer

Roger Federer Quotes About Parents

I see that they, you know, respect me immensely, and I try to put on a good show and show that I can still play very good tennis.” – Roger Federer

“Before, I guess, mum and dad were everything, but now, in my case, I had two new girls and all of a sudden they’re completely dependent on you and there’s a third generation. It’s a funny shift all of a sudden. You have the babies, you have yourself and then you have your parents.” – Roger Federer

“When I was 12 years old, I was just horrible. My parents were ashamed to watch my matches. I would play on a court at the local club and they would watch from the balcony. They would scream, ‘Be quiet’ to me and I would scream back, ‘Go and have a drink. Leave me alone.’ Then we would drive home in a very quiet car. No one is speaking to each other.” – Roger Federer

“I never waited 27 years, because 27 years ago I was just born. My parents never told me, ‘If you don’t win Roland Garros we take you to the orphanage.” – Roger Federer

Some people run away from it, some people embrace it; I found a good middle ground.” – Roger Federer

“I hope so. God, I’ve practiced so much that I don’t want to be worse five years later. I feel I have a great game today. I know how hard it is to pull off those great shots, and I know how easy it is to miss, so I’m more aware of these things. But I’m so happy I’m at the age I am right now because I had such a great run and I know there’s still more possible.” – Roger Federer

“The serve, I was too young and too small and… not powerful enough to have a good serve when I was young, so my forehand was always my signature shot. So I used to always run around my backhand, you know, use my forehand as much as I could, and so that’s why I think it’s my strength also today, you know.” – Roger Federer
