The Young Roger Federer [Video]
For a little nostalgia this Wednesday, here’s a video of Roger Federer when he was an 18-year-old junior 1998.
From the footage, the baby-faced Federer had those same smooth strokes back then as he does now.
The Swiss has been resting since his two Davis Cup victories in Australia just after the US Open. Federer, however, returns to play next week in Basel along with Novak Djokovic and Andy Roddick.
Federer is already scheduled to play Monday night. He’s currently well back in 4th place in the 2011 point standings, so if Roger wants to finish in the Top 3 once again he’ll have to do well in the last three events.
On the season, Federer is 49-12 with one title (Doha) and two runner-up finishes (Dubai and French Open). In his last tournament – which seems so long ago – Federer lost in the semifinals of the US Open to Djokovic.
