Roger, three questions

20.03.2007 | Tennis

You once said that you’d like to be a musician, performing in front of a huge crowd in a stadium. What kind of artist would you like to be?


Rockstar, I guess. I’d like to be Lenny Kravitz… I saw him live in Paris and was touched by the way he interacted with the audience and how the fans reacted, I loved it. I’d really like to experience that once. Or I’d like to be a soccer star. I don’t think you can beat the feeling of playing live in front of a crowd that size. These are moments we all dream of. I am very lucky to be able to live my dream in tennis.



Roger, you are receiving large amounts of praise and awards. Don’t you sometimes feel that it is all a bit too much?


I guess I have merited the praise, but I do sometimes wish people would give me some more time and say: okay, you’re doing a great job, all these records and so on, but let’s wait until the end of your career and see if you were really the best looking back from that point – or if you even get close. I don’t play to break records, I play to win. I’m not surprised people talk about it, but I do occasionally think it is too much for me.



One of your next goals is certainly winning the Grand Slam. Would it be a failure if you didn’t make it?


No, no way. I think what people really want to see me do is win the French Open. They’ve more or less seen all the rest, I think. It’s obvious, if I were able to choose, I’d go for the French Open, but the most emotional and best title to me will always be Wimbledon.

Dear Roger, do not worry about what people say or think, we fans adore you because you are always just yourself and that is the way we love you. Close to perfect but not perfect, you are a human being after all, and thank God you still loose now and then!
