Roger and Jimmy

02.03.2007 | Off Court

Isn't this an amazing memory? The picture is from Basel, at my hometown tournament, where I actually used to be a ball boy. Between being a ball boy and playing, I got an award for best junior in Basel under 14. Jimmy Connors and Mansour Bahrami were playing an exhibition match and gave me kind of an award, which was a watch back then. I walked on court, had a picture taken with both of them, then walked off again. I was so nervous. Whoever would have thought I would break the record. Looking back, it's quite an amazing story, I think...
