Respect, confidence and my #Federer mancrush

Mrs Towers and my best (female) friend make fun of my Federer mancrush. So be it. Yes, he may have the carbon footprint of a medium sized developing world city. Yes, he shills for some horrible corporations. Yes, he probably once didn’t buy a copy of the Big Issue of someone.

You seen him play tennis? OMG, OM*F*G, as the young people say.

And what is interesting is that he has stayed that implausibly good, stayed that hungry, long long after he could have been forgiven for giving up and leaving the stage.

At 31 and a half years of age, still sublime…

And this, in the press conference after his latest match (beating Aussie Bernard Tomic) is just as elegant as his backhand or dropshot.

“I think it’s important to be confident, but obviously you respect the game and you respect the other players,” said the four-time Australian Open champion.

“I think he has a lot of respect for me. But I’m only one guy out of hundreds out there, so it’s important to respect all of us because we make each other better players, all of us. So we should be thankful to that.”
