This is one of the best background pieces on Federer I've seen, and we follow him pretty closely. Thanks for the good work. I know this isn't about tennis per se, but given that he seems to think his new twins (photo of happy family on his Facebook page) are the best birthday present ever, I think they are worth a mention :-)

He is such a sweetheart. I didn't know he got so emotional at his games, but that just makes me like him more.

Tragedy graced Federer with an entirely unwanted but critical lesson. From it, he's earned the admiration of so many people, and perhaps more confidence in himself.

Last year's Wimbledon final against Nadal was the most unbelievable tennis! Federer has done amazing things for the sport of tennis. Quite a champion.

My what a surprise when I saw the photos of the twins, roger and mirka. I thought They were having just one child. Well twins are a lot of fun and as toddlers will keep roger and mirka running.
Good practice for tennis!

We wish you and your family all the best.

will be watching your games in Vancouver. b.c. this week.

Janet, sorry you feel that tennis is boring, but I think it's one of the best sports around. Watch Roger a few more times and see if you still think it's boring. He's the best I've seen and when you're looking at greatness - it's nothing but boring, I think.

Congratulations to Roger for having one of the most remarkable years ever in tennis, and all of this in about a 3-month period. Looking at how his 2009 started, I thought for sure Roger would be stuck at 13 grand slams, eating the dust behind Nadal, Murray, and Djokovic. But Roger has shown what a fantastic champion and person he is to turn it around in 3 short months (professional and personally).

As a Federer fan, I am still on cloud 9 and anything he does from now on out is just icing on the cake. He's already accomplished so much and I'm so proud to be a Federer fan.

I can completely agree with that. I'm proud as well. He's a champion and a truly great person at heart.

Anyone unappreciative of the sport haven't really gotten to watch these guys play. You don't have to like it I imagine, but there's so much work and dedication put into it. Not to mention they're missing out on an artistic side of tennis watching Roger play.:)

I never had any interest in watching tennis. Once I was changing TV channels and saw Roger Fed playing in China for Master's Cup if I remember correctly. That day changed the way I looked at tennis. I was glued. I don't know what is there in his style. Watching him play is so refreshing. Then I heard him during the ceremony and became a die hard fan. How could someone at such level be so humble? Now tennis has become my favourite sport to watch. It is all because of you Rogga.

Fed is a truly an inspiring and exemplary player. He is about the best that has happened to the game. I know many who became interested after watching him play and some have even taken up the sport.

I know there are some quarters who are downright against him. But truth be said, he did get 15 Grand Slams and you can take that away from him.

He is a gentleman both on and off the court although admittedly, he was also one of those tantrum throwing players in his younger days. But he changed and became a true legend of the game.

All the best , Roger
