What tennis players tell each other

Stan to Roger: asshole
Roger to Rafa: you bastard
Andy Roddick to Roger: you selfish bastard
Rafa [on Roger]: you don’t always have to agree with your wife
Roger to Murray: Sir Andy
Rafa to Murray (text message): Hi Andy. You look great tonight. Shame your girlfriend is here….😙😚😚

I learned a long time ago not to be surprised by Roger Federer. Straight out of the gate. Six months. Beating guys like Berdych and Nishikori. I don’t begrudge Roger any of his success and I’d probably be the poster boy for jealousy as it pertains to him. But the way he lives, the way he carries himself, the way he talks and handles his business. Having him and Rafa top, it’s trickled down and people handle their business and they act like professionals now. I think that has a direct line back - I don’t think it’s coincidence - I think that has a direct line back to Roger and Rafa.
