Quotable Quotes: Ultrasonic SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Fedadorers, this interview with Times (UK) deserves our communal worship. Alternatively, we can use our uber high-pitched squees to scan pregnant ladies. 


My favourite part? The good news for us of course! 


Ivan Lendl never won another Grand Slam after he became a father. And you’ve already lost one [the US Open] against Del Potro since the kids were born.”

“Yeah . . . these are statistics that I really don’t buy into.”

“I’m only kidding,” I insist.

“No, but you’re right. Those stats exist, but normally when you have kids as a male tennis player, it’s later in your career, so that kind of makes sense. I’m still actually pretty young, so that’s okay.”

“Where do you see yourself now in terms of your career? Have you reached the downward curve?”

I’m midway. It feels like the second part of my career right now, although I am trying to avoid saying that because the second part sounds like ‘neehhhhrrrrr’ [motions straight down]. You can definitely play your greatest tennis until 32 or 33, it’s just a matter of how you look at it. I’ve always been a big believer in looking at the big picture. It’s not about, ‘What will we do tomorrow?’, it’s about, ‘How will my life and tennis look in the next five years?’ And I still have the same vision, so that’s going to help me.”

“Have you set a date for retirement? You’ve spoken about London in 2012, when the Olympics are held at Wimbledon, as a good exit point.”

“No, I didn’t mean it as an exit point.”

“It’s a target?”

“Many people were asking me, ‘When are you going to retire?’ And I said, ‘Well, I’m definitely going to play until the 2012 Olympics’, but that was to shut them up, really. It depends how fit you are, but I would like to play beyond that, and Mirka has said that she would like our two daughters to see me play. So they need to grow a little bit and I need to play a little bit, but we’ll see where it takes us.”





Hang on, I’m meant to be angry at this guy. GO AWAY POOPBRAIN! I will not be seduced by your schmoothness.

    Fantastic Interview, thanks for posting it!!

    did u see the part at the start when he wrote that Federer has worse fashion sense than Murray?
    Made me laugh because I imagined Anna Wintour ditching Roger and taking Murray to all the fashion show 🙂
