As a tennis great, Roger Federer has been asked a of questions over the years. Yesterday, following a routine win over James Blake in Cincinnati, Federer was asked about his thoughts on the presidential race. And he responded by saying the process if far too long and could leave the incoming president exhausted.
“I did follow the presidential race with Obama, for instance, quite closely, because this time around I thought I was old enough and interested enough,” Federer said. “Whereas the last time I just heard it somewhat and I couldn’t believe the length of it and the brutality of it, you know. So felt like every president should be extremely tired becoming the president, you know, and this is actually when the job starts. So it’s pretty fascinating to watch, I’m definitely going to follow it the next time around the same thing again.”
The 30-year-old Federer plays this afternoon against Tomas Berdych, a man who has beaten the Swiss in two of their last three meetings. Federer has won Cincinnati four times including last year when he beat Mardy Fish in the final.
