Q & A with Roger Federer


Roger Federer at the 2008 Beijing Olympics

We caught up with Roger Federer after his loss to Jo Wilfried Tsonga at the Montreal Masters.

1) How does it feel to hit 30?

Not so good, actually, but, of course, I’m not going to say that despite my having my worst year (in terms of majors) since 2002.

2) How’s it going at Montreal?

Not good at all. I thought that Tsonga would take the hint and realize it’s Rogers’ Cup but no. Now they all enjoy taking the mickey out of me. And Nadal (chuckling).

3) Will this affect your US Open preparation?

No, not at all. You saw how I played prior to the French Open and yet I made the finals at Roland Garros.

4) Is retirement on the cards?

I’m still young, I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee (occasionally). Don’t count me out till I’m 35 and then I’ll join Pete (Sampras) on the Champions’ tour.

5) How does Mirka feel about you continuing your touring ways?

As long as I babysit the kids, she has no complaints. (Luckily, the diapers changing phase is past).

Do say: You’re still No.3.

Don’t say: 16—no more.

Disclaimer: The character(s) are real but the interview is fictional.


I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.

What he really meant:

“My back’s had it, mate. As for the Egyptians, they’re all crying: “Mummy!”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I’m off to play cricket in Cairo.”

“Power and respect comes from the barrel of a gun and my retirement’s the smoking gun. At least, I hope.”

“Mao who?”
