Roger Federer: It’s the Body That Tells You How Old You Are, Not the Age [Video]
by Tom Gainey | August 9th, 2011

For you Roger Federer fans here’s a really good interview with the Swiss. Federer reflects on turning 30, the state of his game, visiting his trophy room and what may be ahead.

Federer turned 30 yesterday. He said in the interview that he celebrated with friends and family back in Switzerland where he partied and danced the night away. And he again said he’s not concerned about turning 30.

Federer, a two-time Canadian Open champion at 2004, 2006 Toronto, plays tomorrow in the second round against the winner of the Vasek Pospisil-Juan Ignacio Chela match.

The former No. 1 hasn’t played a competitive match since his stunning loss to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at Wimbledon. In Federer’s last match in Montreal he lost to Tsonga in a similar fashion choking a 5-1 third set lead to the Frenchman in 2009.

Roger and Tsonga could meet again in the third round on Thursday.

The third-ranked Federer is 39-9 on the season with his lone title coming in his first event in January at Doha.

jane Says:

Aging is a lot about the body, I agree with Fed, as we often feel younger at heart or in our heads. It must be even more so the case with athletes.

Humble Rafa Says:

It’s scary. I feel like I am 90. I can barely move, my knee is connected to some machine, the medic is working on the foot…..not good. I wish I had Fed’s easy-on-the-body game and his 2 adorable children!
