Roger Federer gets confused on his Halle win during one Interview!

This Swiss legend is now focussing on his next 100th title at the US Open game which is going to be conducted the next coming fortnight.

He was asked about his journey so far, and about his preparation for the game after skipping on the Rogers Title. On this, he mentioned that he wanted to focus on one competition at a time, as he was avoiding getting in too much tennis.

He also said that the preparations were similar to the ones that he had done for the Wimbledon games. He even added that he almost forgot the success he had at the grass court sessions in 2017.

‘Though it was not much tiring. I think an overall game depends mainly on the grass court season, it was a tough one’. That’s how Roger responded to the preparations.

Then he continued saying – ‘This year it was difficult on the grass court, making it tougher than the previous year. Still, I end up winning both the Wimbledon and the Halle, hey did I win Halle? (smiling) yes, I did.’

‘I will be playing a lot of matches with the grass courts, and after that five-setter that I had with the Anderson- there are many points that you need to take care of as you can’t go for just a straight-cut at the Wimbledon.’

‘I don’t want to come hurt at the Opens match. This is why I decided to keep it low this year on purpose. Also, being clear on not playing the game in advance helped me in planning the practice session well.’

He also wished to spend more time with his family instead of traveling and playing all year. In the next game, Federer will take on Kyrgios in the day session! Stay Tuned!

You need to play your rookies early – this quote was said by Jean Van de Velde who is a famous French Golf Player, and someone known for the dramatic loss at the 1999 Open Championship. 

I will quote the player’s name as Van for the rest of the article.

So, Van had begun playing the professional game in the year 1987, and his first ever Rookie season was played in the year 1989. He is one among the three Frenchmen players who got the chance to play the Ryder Cup, and he said the above quote while recalling his personal experiences.

Van de Velde and his thoughts on Planning the Rookies for the Ryder Cup!

It takes a lot of patience in building the skills, and the same goes for the training period.

Van recalling his initial days where he had to sit outside for the first 2 days. Then, he lost the Sunday Singles matches too. It was going all wrong.

Now, Van in his own words as per his interview with the UK Reuters: 

It is important that you take the game in as it is offered to you, and to keep it real on the field. If the situation is crucial, you will feel the pressure and it will be clearly visible on your face. So, let it show!

There should not be any room for a broken kind of game, you should be alert and ready to take the challenges.

Well, there’s a lot of tension and stress inside the players. You have to make sure that all the worries and the tension is taken out on the field as early as possible.

Along with the player’s performance, a lot of the times Ryder Cup results depends on the Coaches as well. It depends on the way pairing is done, and the players are selected for the three-day tournament matters a lot. Once, one of my earlier coaches tired out all the experienced players just a day before the match.

If such incidents occur or the leader itself is not organized in his work – then this will definitely affect the game and results. Don’t ever try to add two rookies in a day, this will make you lose the points on the first day itself!
