    I don't know what to write..... I can't find the right words
    Is not just a matter of winning, is not only a matter of amounts of slams won......he won 20 by playing in a divine way...when tennis becomes art
    This is not tennis, this is poetry in motion
    “I would love to have played at this club. I am envious of how well Guardiola's men can play. They are like a group of kids who play football in the street without rules. That is the best football, the most authentic, unfettered by tactics or schemes. Guardiola’s philosophy is helping to change the mindset of many tacticians and that is priceless.” Marco Van Basten

    "Today everyone sees me as a quiet man, but my career beginnings were hallucinating.There was a coach who at my first tournament, after losing heavily, told me: At most you can make coffee in a bar with those hands. Boy, you have no talent.
    That guy, he made me grow an anger inside, such as to radically change my personality. I got up at night to go and train outside the house. I turned on the lights in the garden and pulled the ball 100/1000 times against the wall. I tried, the forehand, the backhand, and tried until I was convinced that that particular shot had come out perfect. I wanted to go all the way, but in front of me I saw too many impediments and people who didn't believe in my talent.

    There was even a time when I used to throw my tennis racket, and when I was sixteen, they even drove me out of a intensive training.

    At the age of 17, my family decided that I had to go to the psychologist, because I had shots of sudden anger.

    Since then, my growth has been constant.

    Every time I go under pressure, I think of the effort made to get where I am now.

    After becoming number one in 2004, the idea of quitting came to my mind. After all, I had reached the maximum I could hope for. Then I said to myself: continue Roger, because you can't do anything else, everything that comes next consider it as a bonus.

    They also told me, that I am one who cries too much after a victory and even after a defeat. There are people who don't smile when they win. And there are people who after winning, don't stop smiling for weeks.

    I am the kind of person who allows tears to flow. I let them drop because I think back to when that assistant coach told me that I wouldn't go on in tennis. I think of those moments, I think about how many sacrifices I made to get up. I must thank him, however, because especially in the early years of my career, he gave me the stimulus to move forward. He gave me inner strength to show the world who I could be.

    Never let yourself be killed in sport, as well as in life. Dark moments will come, it is up to you to rise again."

    Reminds me of Björn Borg's childhood story.
