Famous Quotes and Comments by Roger Federer
You live during the match, and you have strong emotions,but you don't want to get too overexcited. My body's totally flat now. I cannot move anymore. I'm totally exhausted, just because of the tension out there.
I'm very happy the way I'm playing.
I didn't have a great record in the beginning of my career in finals. I lost more than winning them. I was very disappointed to have a bad one in the beginning of my pro career.
That is not something I'm really aiming for, to break somebody's record on Grand Slams. If it happens, it's extraordinary. But if it doesn't I still believe I'm having a good career so far, still far away from actually hanging up the racquet against the wall and walking away from tennis
