“No way I would be a journalist. You guys have tried to kill Roger often. But he’s always come back and proved you wrong. So one thing I would not do is make the mistake of saying Roger is dead.“ - Rafael Nadal
"I’ve done and lived the most with him. From five-set matches on court, to promoting a tournament in Qatar, to doing foundation work together. And I’ve gone to dinners with him. I know his family the best, as well. I know his mum, dad and sister. Yeah, our bond goes further back than the one I have with Novak or Andy. And for that reason I feel closest and most connected to Rafa.” - Roger Federer
SO how ‘bout the fact that when one googles Serena Williams or Roberta Vinci her ~*weight*~ is the SECOND item listed in the Wikipedia summary field?? But google Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal and there is nary a weight stat to be found in either the summaries OR their entire Wikipedia articles.
