There are many factors that helped Roger Federer to play for more than 20 years on the professional tour. One of them, the fans’ support.

‘Fans were very important throughout my career, everywhere I go they give me the feeling of being at home, they help me through difficult defeats, they‘re one of the reasons I‘m still playing.

Without them I‘d have probably ran away 6 years ago‘, Federer recently told Style Magazin.

 

The world No. 2 also spoke about how he deals with mental aspect in tennis: ‘I used to work with a mental trainer, but that was when I was probably 16-17, because I had a bad behavior more than anything, and I am happy I was able to get away from that.

 

No more breaking rackets, no more complaining, no more commentating my own points at each time.

 

But at the end of the day, was myself who had to convince myself of changing and I was only able to change that when I was about 20.

I think it’s important to learn from mistakes and losses because you usually learn more there than from wins. Natural.’ Speaking about his life after tennis, Federer said: ‘I have a family, I want to spend time with them, I want to settle in Switzerland.’
