Federer: Portrait of a Tennis Legend

Federer has done so much in this world that it’s hard to imagine he can go above and beyond what was once thought possible. What surprises many people, however, is just how much he’s been able to accomplish without seeming to give it all his effort. His accomplishments are incredible, especially considering the fact that this man just seems so naturally born for this sport – no matter what obstacles are thrown at him or what difficulties arise along the way. There are few others who come close to matching up with everything that the young Swiss-native holds within himself; both externally on the court and internally off of it too. I admire him deeply because even after taking a beating or two there always seem to be enough left inside of him – if not something then someone else entirely – as if anything but success was simply inconceivable here.

More than any other male player, Roger has won 20 Grand Slam singles titles. He’s the only person to win five straight US Opens and has won Wimbledon eight times. He has won the Davis Cup, Olympic gold, and silver for his native Switzerland. Federer is regarded as the best in the sport by many fans and analysts.

About the Author: Iain Spragg was an illustrious sports journalist who published his work in several different newspaper publications – such as The Daily Telegraph and The Times. He also authored a number of prominent books including The Jonny Wilkinson Story, England Rugby: The Official Yearbook, The Reduced History of Rugby, and The History of the World Cup in 100 Objects.

  8. 塚本恭章

    2019年9月8日に全米OPテニスが終わり、ラファエル・ナダルが全米OP4回目の優勝、そしてGSタイトルをのばし19回とした。いわゆるビッグ3の一人であるナダルの優勝は、今年のGSもジョコとナダルの2人で分け合うことになったという意味で、彼らがいかに大舞台に強く、またかつ息の長い選手であるかを見事に証明している。そしてロジャー・フェデラー。38歳になった今なお、男子テニス界を魅力あふれるプレーで牽引し続ける史上最高の選手。本書は彼のライフワークであるテニスという競技におけるフェデラーのストーリーを、懐かしいフォトグラフとあわせて楽しめる素晴らしい作品だ。ファンにはとても嬉しい(いずれ本書の日本語訳が登場するかもしれない)。現代テニスにおいてフェデラーの存在はまさに別格であろう。ラファやノバクといった彼のライバルたちは、みなロジャーを心からリスペクトし、また愛している。そんなテニス選手のみならず世界中のファンからの愛される偉大なテニス選手は、若手の台頭が著しいなかでも世界トップレベルのテニスパフォーマンスを展開し、若手の追随を許していない。いやそれどころか、彼のテニスは絶えず新たな進化をともない、驚くべきプレーを見せ続けてくれる。真の偉大さ、だ。フェデラーといえど、いずれ現役を引退する。それは分かっている。だが、彼はテニス選手という域をはるかに超えた存在であり、未来永劫にわたってわれわれに鮮烈な記憶(そして記録)をとどめさせる、そう本書とともに。フェデラー自身がいつの日か将来、自伝を書いてくれるならば、わたしはそれを最高の愛読書のひとつにしたいと思っている。フェデラーを彩る盟友たちとの激闘、そんな戦いぶりをリアルタイムで見られるファンは実に幸せだ。

  9. Tan Chong Soo

    Beautifully illustrated biography of Federer with large and vivid photos that bring the action to life. Contains all key moments of his career and updated to include his latest victories up to 2018. Truly befitting of a tennis legend!

    This book encompasses the achievements of Roger Federer with a vividly illustrated collection of pictures but did notice a number of inaccuracies. On Page 45 It was claimed at Wimbledon in 2004, Federer was in imperious form and marched back into the final for the loss of just two sets which is actually INCORRECT. Federer was only stretched to four sets, once, by Australian Lleyton Hewitt in the quarter-final. On Page 52 It was claimed by winning the 2004 US Open, Federer became the first man in the history of the game to win his first four Grand Slam finals which is actually INCORRECT. Fred Perry of Great Britain won his first four Grand Slam finals by winning the 1934 US Open mens final and Tony Trabert of the United States also achieved this feat when he won the 1955 Wimbledon mens singles championship. Also On Page 52 It was claimed in 2006 Federer appointed a new coach in Australian Tony Roche , the 1966 French Open champion and four time Slam finalist which is actually INCORRECT. Roche was a five time Slam finalist, beaten twice in US Open finals, twice in French Open finals and once in a Wimbledon final. On Page 58 It was claimed at the 2006 Australian Open, Federer dropped a set to both Tommy Haas and Nikolay Davydenko en route to the final which is actually INCORRECT. In his fourth-round defeat Haas forced Federer to five sets. On Page 89 It was claimed in the 2009 Australian Open final, twice Federer fought back from a set down to Rafael Nadal but in the pivotal fifth set the Spaniard served out for his first Australian title which is actually INCORRECT. Nadal broke the Federer serve in the eighth game to claim the set 6-2 in the championship decider. On Page 133 It was claimed in the last 32, Federer defeated Japan’s Kei Nishikori in a five-set thriller at the 2017 Australian Open which is actually INCORRECT. This five set battle was a fourth-round match up. On Page 141 It was claimed at the age of 36 years and 173 days when Federer beat Marin Cilic to win the 2018 Australian Open, he became only the fourth man in the Open era to win four Grand Slams in his 30s which is actually INCORRECT. Only two players, Australians Rod Laver and Ken Rosewall had previously won four Grand Slams in the Open era in there 30s.
