Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: »Ich wusste nicht, ob daraus der beste oder der schlimmste Text über mich werden würde.« Roger Federer. 2006 reiste David Foster Wallace im Auftrag der New York Times nach Wimbledon, um über das dortige Tennisturnier zu schreiben. Wallace, selbst in seiner Jugend ein erfolgreicher Tennisspieler, traf Roger Federer – für ihn eine fast göttliche Begegnung. David Foster Wallace' Reportagen sind Herzstücke seines großen Werks. 2006 traf Wallace Roger Federer und führte ein Interview mit dem damals noch nicht ganz so berühmten Schweizer, dessen »übermenschliche Karriere« langsam Fahrt aufnahm. Herausgekommen ist ein Text, der Federers Talent beschreibt, der aber auch wie immer bei Wallace die scheinbaren Nebensächlichkeiten des Turniers in den Blick nimmt. Dieser Text ist berühmt geworden – nicht zuletzt, weil die Tennisspielerin und Autorin Andrea Petković ihn wie die anderen Tennistexte von Wallace mit Nachdruck immer wieder empfiehlt.

Summary Book Review Roger Federer: The Greatest by Chris Bowers:
Download or read book Roger Federer: The Greatest written by Chris Bowers and published by Kings Road Publishing. This book was released on 2011-05-02 with total page 330 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Roger Federer is a legend not only in the world of tennis but also in the wider sporting arena. With a record-breaking tally of 16 Grand Slam titles to his name, he shows no sign of slowing down and in 2010 added another Australian Open win to his collection, as well as taking the trophy in the end-of-season ATP World Wide Tour Finals in London. This authoritative and affectionate biography traces the rise of Federer, from his first tentative strokes with a tennis racket to how he dealt with being sent away to a training academy where he struggled to communicate in a French-speaking part of Switzerland; and how he handled the sudden death of his first real coach and mentor. It looks at his development as a sportsman and how he has matured into a family man with his marriage to Mirka Vavrinec and the birth of their twin girls. It also examines how Roger bounced back from arguably one of the most challenging periods of his career as, following a serious illness and a dip in form, his run of successive Wimbledon championship wins was ended and he was toppled from the number one spot by his long-time rival Rafael Nadal. In characteristic style, Federer silenced his critics by winning the French Open title for the first time, reclaiming his Wimbledon crown and ending 2009 at the number one position for the fifth time.

In this innovative graphic biography, Federer's genius is explored and celebrated like never before, with beautiful infographics looking at his serving patterns, the speed of his shots, the spin he generates, his movement, as well as his performance in high-pressure situations such as tiebreaks and Grand Slam finals. Federer's astonishing records - no man has won more majors, or spent more weeks as the world number one - are also showcased against his rivals and the legends of the game. Drawing on his conversations with Federer, as well as exclusive interviews with those close to the Swiss, Mark Hodgkinson tells the story of how a young hothead from Basel transformed himself into a calm and poised athlete who came to dominate tennis. And who, while deep in his thirties, has continued to seek improvements, to challenge men many years younger than him and to contend for the sport's biggest prizes. The infographics, stunning photography and insight and analysis - from Federer's rivals, idols, coaches and members of his inner circle - will give you a new appreciation of his greatness and how his tennis has moved so many people.
Summary Book Review Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal by Sebastián Fest:
Download or read book Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal written by Sebastián Fest and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2018-07-10 with total page 999 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since 2004, two names have dominated men’s tennis: Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Each player is legendary in his own right. The Spanish Nadal is the winner of sixteen Grand Slam titles, including five consecutive French Open singles titles from 2010-2014, and is the only player ever to win a Grand Slam for ten straight years. Federer, from Switzerland, has spent over three hundred weeks of his career ranked as the number-one player in the world and has won twenty Grand Slam titles and two Olympic medals. But neither player’s career would have been nearly as successful without the decade-long rivalry that pushed them to rise to the peak of tennis excellence. Nadal and Federer have met thirty-eight times over the course of their careers, and have shared the distinction of being ranked the two best players in the world for an astounding six years in a row from 2005-2009. In Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, international sports journalist Sebastian Fest uses information gleaned from his numerous interviews with both players over the last decade to narrate the rivalry, and its impact not only on the players, but on the sport itself. Documenting their respective wins and losses, hopes and disappointments, and relationships with their rivals, Fest formulates a unique biography of two of the greatest players of tennis.

Download or read book Federer written by Chris Bowers and published by Kings Road Publishing. This book was released on 2016-05-05 with total page 300 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This admired biography traces the rise of Roger Federer, from his first tentative strokes with a racket to legendary status, and perhaps even the title of greatest tennis player ever. It looks at his development as a sportsman and how he has matured into a family man after his marriage and the birth of twin girls, followed by twin boys in 2014. With his remarkable return to top-level form after his grim 2013, culminating in his sealing Switzerland's Davis Cup triumph in November 2014, and his narrow loss to Novak Djokovic in the 2015 Men's Singles at Wimbledon, a fuller picture of the player's career can be painted. Far from being an endless recitation of tennis matches won and, sometimes, lost, however, the book also examines how Federer bounced back from arguably one of the most challenging periods of his career when he suffered a serious illness and a dip in form. In characteristic style, he silenced his critics by winning the French Open title for the first time, reclaiming his Wimbledon crown, winning Olympic gold, and in 2015 recording his 1,000th career win – a feat achieved by only two other players – as well as beating both Djokovic and Murray, the world Nos 1 and 2, to win the Cincinnati Masters for the seventh time. This masterly biography brings the player's story up to date, while also considering Federer the man and the player, as well as his place in tennis and sporting history.
