Short Bibliography

Story time!

I am going to tell you about the first time I had ever seen Rodger Federer play tennis. It was in 2005 and I remember watching it like it was yesterday. Rodger Federer vs Rafael Nadal. Federer recovered from a two set deficit to win in five sets in the Miami Final. While watching the game I came to realize that this Rodger Federer has something that no other tennis player has besides his skill. He can single handedly change the game and hype the crowd whenever he wants to. I then got into tennis and learnt the game and did some research on the game andall my life Rodger Federer has given me the innovation to never give up and give it my best and this is not just when playing tennis but with everything in life.

Who do you think is better?

Who is Roger Federer?

Everyone knows Roger Federer as “The greatest tennis player ever”, “the man who has changed tennis” or the “man who has bagged a total of 17 grand slam titles. He holds the record of being the only player to hold the number 1 position for 302 weeks overall. He has smashed his way to win the World Sportsman of the year for a record of 4 times in a row from 2005-2008. But all of this was definitely not easy to achieve. Now that we know that he is an amazing tennis player, I would like you to know that he is an even better person. Roger Federer supports five major charities namely “the Elton John Aids foundation” which is one of the world’s leading non profit HIV/AIDS organisations, “Humpty Dumpty foundation” which is an Australian charity which raises money for equipment for children’s hospitals, “Mines Advisory Group” which is one of the world’s leading humanitarian organizations providing conflict affected countries with a real chance for a better future, “Small Steps Project” which is a humanitarian organization which supports children around the world who live on rubbish dumps and his very own “The Roger Federer Foundation”. Which supports education, sports and leisure activities in places with little to no funding at all.

Roger Federer's secrets revealed!

Roger Federer has kept a powerful mindset all his life, he has overcome the obstacles that stood in his way and not once has he given up. He fought to become the person he is today. By the time he turned 11, he became one of the Top 3 Junior Tennis players in Switzerland. And I would like to mention that Roger Federer was the only one of those three players who went on to be a professional tennis player and he achieved this by hard work and determination. We are probably all asking ourselves, well how did he do it? What he did was he concentrated all of his energies on tennis and left all of the other sports he did. By the age of 14, he started playing tournaments, practicing and striving to reach professional level. And during this year he wonthe National Junior Championship in Switzerland he then went on and turned professional in 1998, the year In which I was born. After all of the things he went through to become professional tennis player, he went on to lose his first professional tennis match against Lucas Arnold Ker. Now I want you to imagine what it would be like losing your first ever professional tennis match. And the thoughts that would go through your head. I know for a fact that if this had ever happened to me I would break down, be depressed, probably have thoughts of giving up, but Roger Federer on the other hand, kept a powerful mindset, never had a single negative thought and he went on to train extra hard, the hardest he had ever trained and now look at the man he is today. This is why I am proud to say that Roger Federer is by far the greatest.
