Roger Federer Pushes Stan The Man’s ‘Buttons’

What he said:

What he definitely didn’t:

Lleyton Hewitt

What he said:

“You’re retired for a long time once you’re retired.”

Lleyton Hewitt makes no apologies for continuing playing tennis despite being side-lined by injuries and indifferent form.

What he really meant:

“Retiring is like dying—you don’t come back. If you do, it’s a miracle.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I’m retiring.”
