"And that's the difference between, you know, the greats and some players who might win one. Is that somebody like a Roger Federer or an adult? Or Novak, they've been able to lock in for an extended period of time. And you can tell, especially when they're not playing well or when they're missing when they're missing shots. And how to deal with that. Like when you watch federal play and you know this, you can't tell if you hit the winner if he misses the ball. By his by his emotion, right? He literally, he finishes a point and he moves on to the next one. There's no belaboring, there is no emotional outburst. There's no negative energy, nothing. So that's very intimidating for an opponent, right? And that's something that the young players have to learn that yes, it's okay to emote, but it's better to emote in a positive way. Than to show your opponent that you're struggling. And I think that's the difference between faux winning the Australian open now and when the Australian open in two years, for instance, that he, I mean, he's got so much power. He's got so much speed. He's got such unbelievable hands, huge serve. He's got everything. He's got the full package. He is a captivating character on the court. People love him. He's a kind, amazing, just a great guy. I think we will see what happens when he's faced with these moments of inconsistency and how he manages them. In order to be consistent in the long run, right? Because in order to be consistent, you have to manage inconsistencies in a way. Almost disarm them by not putting too much energy towards when you miss when you miss a ball when you miss three points back to back or when you lose when you lose a service game. Yeah, you know, one of the things I think is a little bit crippling when I look at some American players who almost got it, you know, got that slam I say, if they were from a smaller country, like in Austria, lack of Germany, they would have made it sooner because I feel like in America, we market and monetize a good result. Well, there was some not a slam. You don't win. But we take a good result. You know, four rounds of good result. Corners is a good result. We take that market and monetize and blow it up, attach ourselves to it. So tight that it cripples the player and makes the distance between a quarterfinal result and

"Is struggling and obviously we know that coaching is not allowed. What was not allowed from the stands, but some coaches get away with it better than others. Tony said that he told Federer after he told Nadal after a set of match in a final somewhere where he said Nadal was just being beaten by Federer who was on fire that day. And he said, just slow it down, high up to the back and just remember the plan. It's always plan a plan a plan a, just do it. You slowed it down. You turn it around any one. And he said, you know, we had it all planned. It was all worked out perfectly. Until 2017 and it all turned around. And he said, that is the worst, that's the worst moment for him. Is when Federer suddenly came out and, as I said, tax on the back end. And from that moment on, I think federal won 5 in a row against Nadal. He started really mashing him up in finals, which was something he'd not done for years. So that was really interesting. Tony loved Tony loved the way Federer hit the ball. He talks about, you know, he likes, he likes what happens with the ball, but he likes the way the ball gets there. He did a nice way of explaining it. So obviously he liked Federer's aesthetic pleasing game. And he talks about the rivalry with Raphael as being for him, one of the greatest ever in sports, not just tenants, 100%. And for those that are listening, if we break down what Tony's tell, we talk about chip in the back camp, right? So if you're a lefty, someone like Nadal with sort of like what we call a reverse forehand where it's got this wicked spin. If you chip the return for Rafa, the ball slows down, it has backspin on it. So it's gonna land short and come towards the net. Yeah. That'll give Rafa enough time to turn any bad can into a forehand. And that almost guarantees that ball number two. They call it the surplus one. At the serve plus one ball four Rafa will then go to Federer's backhand again. And so he already kicking out wide nice and high. Then if he gets a chimp return, he can do he can get into the court and then give a second ball high up to the bank hand, right? And if it's too hot back cans for the first two shots of the point, then you're probably going to win 80% of the point. So that's the logic guys about not chipping the backhand or chipping the return to someone like Nadal who's a lefty because you're weak strikes on the right on the only sort of weakness to a one hand backhand is when it's above the shoulder, right? And so I always look at Federer and I always say, you know what? If he had a two hand backhand. Yeah. How many slams? What do you want? Yeah. Because when I look at the people who only, you know, obviously Djokovic and Rafa, the only place they had to go when they were in trouble was high to the backhand.

"When you go back to talking to the guys who worked within when he was really young, I mean Sven the Corona felt Dutch coach who obviously worked for Maria Sharapova in many players. He was head of the Swiss tennis foundation, but Swiss tennis federation student when Federer was coming through. As a teenager. And he talks of Federer being pretty badly behaved in terms of it was never, it was never picking on another player. He was never getting in someone's face or anything like that, but it was always about him. He was a perfectionist, as you might imagine. And he couldn't handle Sven says that he just could not handle playing okay or well. He had to play perfectly. As anyone who's ever played any sport knows, there is no such thing as perfection. And if you aim for it, you're going to fail, but he really was desperate to play as perfect tennis as he could, even at that age. He threw his racket all over the place. He got involved in all sorts of awkward situations in terms of his behavior on corpse. He Sven tells the story about how I think there was some sponsors regalia at the back of the court and Federer threw his racket and it hit the curtain and broke the sponsors hoardings at the back and caused a lot of fuss and but the interesting thing was how do you deal with someone who does behave like that? Do you just discipline them really hard or do you sort of work with them to try and get to what's causing that? And I think the sign of it a good coach is that they deal with everyone individually in general. And they work out what works for them and spend it. We knew we felt that we couldn't just say to roger, you can't play for two weeks. Because he would go nuts. And it would just do turn and maybe turn him off Tennessee. So what they did was they put in one sort of court cleaning duty and stuff like that. But he was still allowed to train. He was still allowed to play. And that sort of east him through that period. I mean, there are plenty of other stories of him throwing his racket, I don't think he necessarily was a swearer, badly on court. I mean, he can speak so many languages you could probably hide it. Nicely. But yeah, it was generated generally throwing rackets and just getting incredibly frustrated. And you can see that even if you go back and look at video of his early matches on court on the tour, you know, he lost to a lot of good players, a lot of top players, a lot early on. They lost to Hewitt. I think the first four of the first 5 or 5, 5 out of 5, Tim henman beating a lot, pat rafter beat him three times out of three, but in the book that rafter says, you know, I got lucky. I got him before he became roger, but still there were people who got on top of him. And after even describes it as being mentally, really weak. And the interesting thing is Peter lundgren was working with Federer when Federer won his first Grand Slam at Wimbledon. Before that, rafter played fed Federer three times as I said, and he said he remembers Peter being really annoyed because Federer was really weak mentally.

"And I said to him, we used surprise that Federer, the way he came out and played that final against Nadal. And as I said, he started to be more aggressive on his back end and from three one down in the final set. He just went nuts, cut loose, blade 5 of the best games you'd ever see in your life. And he sort of got really animated, and he said, no, no, I wasn't because he got the call from sever and lute, Federer's coach. The night before, saying, look, great. We need some help here. I want some advice. And so those guys met on the morning of the final. And it was fascinating to hear Craig sort of explain what he was trying to get across to several looting. He laid out a number of different tactical things that he could try against Nadal, but the one main one was he said, you can not slice your backend return or block it. You've got to go for it. Because it works well against everyone in the world except Nadal. And this is what you've got to do. And I've never heard that story told before. And of course, Federer went on to win that, and then that sparked his renaissance in later years. So when you think about Roger Federer, right? We think about his composure, right? I want to talk about how composed he was. But there are also a lot of stories about early in his career. Yeah. And maybe a little bit of YouTube video on some of the young Federer and his anger in his tirade and just the frustration with losing and how he handled sort of defeat. You did write a chapter about roger the student. And I think the thing is because as his career went on, so did social media grew. So did the media. So even the early stuff gets drowned out by the massive amount of content that we have access to now. But tell us a little bit about roger and the student, right? Because I'm a coach, right? And I actually love the fiery personality because I feel like we need some of that. You need, you can't be indifferent to the result. And sometimes composure can be miss understood as complacency and indifference. And early when kids are early in their career, they have a hard time masking it and it just comes out. But then later in their career, it's within, right? So tell me about a good story around the student chapter. Yeah, I mean, it's interesting. I've heard Federer talk himself recently about how, you know, in those years when he was not winning Grand Slam titles, 2012 to 17, he got to a lot of finals, but he lost final sets, 6 two, quite a lot. That sort of thing. And people were asking, you know, he's just not trying hard enough. He doesn't look like he's trying. He isn't got it inside him anymore. And he was really frustrated because of course he was. But he had turned himself into that machine that from 2004 onwards, just won all the time. So he didn't even have to worry about getting angry on court. Yeah. It's fascinating.

"No one gives a little nudge, seems like a compliment, but actually there was a bit more to it than you imagined, then Federer, but he did it with a smile, and because it was him, he always thought, okay, that probably didn't mean that. But maybe he did. He was a champion. He was all these champions have egos. They all have incredible winners, attitude, and sometimes that comes across in a different way and not as nice a way as you'd imagine. But it was hard because he did create such an amazing impact on so many people. It was hard to make sure that it wasn't all nice all the way through. Now, you know, his personality is one that lends you and say, hey, roger, we want to write a book about you. His personality lives and said, yeah, that's all right. You know, right about somebody else write it about Serena. Her impact on I could see him saying her impact on the game and on the people was much more than I can see him sort of deferring. And attempting to give somebody else a spotlight. So when you try to write the book or you start beginning the process, did you confer with him and let's say Tony is like, hey, here's what we're doing. Did you need their blessing? Or it was like, you know, we're just gonna do it. Well, we sort of knew that roger doesn't authorize any books about him. So we knew that it was very, very unlikely we were going to be able to actually get a sit down with roger. Now, I've interviewed roger a couple of times over the years, one to one, which was a great experience. And obviously I've spoken to him countless times in press conferences around the world and Simon the same. He's interviewed him more than I have. But he was never going to authorize the book as an official biography, if you like. He just doesn't do that. And as you know, there have been a lot of books about Federer already. But we did speak to so what we did is we started to gather the interviews and as we did, we realized that actually there was a really good story to be told. And the one thing we try to do is to split it into chapters according to the impact that he had on these people. So we have fans and friends and rivals and peers and the professionals that we talked to Mary carillo as a unbelievable commentator about what it's like to try and commentate on Roger Federer because, you know, when you're watching someone who just makes it look all so easy, what do you say? So she was amazing about that. Each person was good on their own subject. But I think it's just, you know, we knew that it was unlikely we were going to get to speak to his inner circle any more than we already had done. So I didn't try and speak to evaluate, for example. Simon Graf knows severin luthi very well, but we just left them alone because we didn't want to upset the apple cart. But we spoke to Tony, we told Tony what we were doing.

Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic, the third member of the so called Big Three, is trying to become the first man ever to win 21 Grand Slam titles and the first man since 1969 to win all four majors in the same calendar. You almost Frank Lindsay caught up with the New York Times tennis correspondent Chris Clary. You just released a new book about Roger Federer called the Master Chris before we get into the book itself. I wanted to get your sense. Is this it? Are we finally at the end of the era of the Big Three. The end that we know will come eventually, and we've been talking about for years now, you know, Frank, I think we are. You know, it's sort of it's sort of snuck up on us. Could say it snuck up on us quickly or gradually, But I mean, I think the big three as we've known them Federer, Nadal and Djokovic just routine legal and deepen slams Now that Roger's tried to come back from his Third knee surgery and ended up not working.

Now you've been if Roger manages to come back against the eyes of place, or I don't see him being a regular factor with just those two guys at the top anymore, So it was a tremendous period of time in tennis history.

All those things have been i think. Just as big a factor if bigger factors than the record. But i can guarantee to anybody listening to this that regardless of all stories. You've heard in this podcast. it is well worth. He's still reading this book because there is so much more decide i mean i. I was captivated. I ready was. I couldn't my my daughter's read it. She's any eleven years old but she's absolutely loving it and it's very interesting as well just getting her view from somebody who's you know. She's seen him on the tv in the last couple of years. And that's it and to to understand that the so much more that that has gone into the person that you see there i mean just just a couple of final points one is given. You've done twenty interviews with him over twenty year period. Plus how how is he. How's he changed as a person. I thought a lot about that and turn the evolution. Because obviously he's evolved many ways business is Is for public image and privately. You know it's interesting. He definitely seems an early years. I'd say a little bit more guarded little bit rough around the edges But he always had that ability from an early stage in my view to kind of block out all the noise. While got all the distractions and really focus on the conversation in the interview at hand and felt more like conversations. Can that even from the early ages. I remember two thousand five. In paris interviewing him in the hotel creole without amazing view of the plus concord utter luxury and he sat down and mirka was so kind of photo. Shoot parry match. I think later in the day or later in the week so she kept coming in and out of the room with different clothes on and he would give her attention and say nay and then go back to our interview and give full focus so he was able to manage and compartmentalize things very well then but he very know human warm on a one on one level. Had a lot of curiosity about where you're coming from as person interviewing him he wanted to get a sense of. What made you who you were. What brought you to that place. That was always there. I think he's gotten so much more coppin relaxed about you know what. He brings to the equation over time. I mean people can look things he's done with the jackets wimbledon and some of the comments after matches the times and see a with arrogance or cockiness. I honestly have never felt any kind of entitled nature in any of the interviews with them and one hundred percent clear about it. I'm also in for the new york. Times international tribune. So i'm not. He's not just talking to me talking to my paper and what it represents so at beg. I can't forget that but the fact of it is. You always had the impression that it was a real exchange and not just a transactional thing and that honestly there another people like that. I've interviewed. i've covered many many sports in my career. As a sportswriter to the other athletes like that. But somebody who's been public is that law and that kind of position to so feel that human face to face in that unin entitled. I would say i think it's very rare. I think it. I think it is very rat. A couple matt roberts My cut host here on the tennis. Podcast is sent through. What wants to know how the name of the book the master was arrived at. Is that something that you came up with. The publishes work. And why that i have. A great publisher guy named shawn desmond. The twelve work does work on. I think it might be as that. He hasn't done any tennis books for sports books. I don't think he's more of a broad brush. And he really felt strongly about that title. And i think it works in the sense that roger really was about master in so many domains in his career. That was the key and i don't think he's the go down. There is a goat. I really don't like that term. I don't think we need to have that determination to go. Forward their lives. Frankly all the column inches and twitter space has been used over the last decade about it. But i think what's important is that sorta searched for for mastery really on a personal level and a professional one. I think that's been definitional for him. So i like the title. It wasn't my idea was johnson and i thought it wore thought about it the more i felt like working obviously with tennis's connections to the masters and year tournament it's get some residents there for the sports.

"I listened to making my fertile today. Sam better than it was to watch. I mean look. That's nothing against jokes. Which one in straight-sets but even he didn't play that well and he did. He did enough struck me just how challenging. It is for him to find a reason on the spot to get inspired and two there was no threat martin future which did not put him under any real pressure at any point in that match even though he got it relatively close in the in the one set but made a respectable in the first when he was five down. But he's just he didn't have anything to hurt jackovitch what he's like. Not as good version of novak chuck rich rarely the way he plays careful. He's measured. he's a good player. He deserved his place in the quarter-finals. But you could see how flat yerkovich was. And he's having to try to manage this match when when there's no real threat to his future unless he capitulates I think jackovitch will get way better at some point in this tournament friday. Yeah i think. Friday could be quite tents for him. I think it could. I think that could be a bit of a tense. When i think he'll still win. But i think the crowd and all the rest of it could get him tense but then i think he will find a way and then a suspect in the final. You'll see the real hip. So are we expecting jackovitch bertini final. I think i probably am yes But i would need to look up the head to head her catch bertini if they've played before whether there's anything to go on there that does feel pretty close. Generally i felt bertini from the start of the tournament. But i didn't know that we were going to get her. Catch plane linus. That's we talked about the four sets in a row. He's he's a real threat to to anybody except chocolates and he may even be against chocolate. But yeah. I don't think if he plays where beretania love who who john jumping ahead. I'm guilty of doing it again. Who would jovovich as she me. Be chiappa valve rather face in the fine. Because i do think bertini you think okay has the weapons to hurt jackovitch. But he also has the weaknesses that djokovic can hone in on an exploit. I think her catch. Maybe has a bit more bit more. Well rounded than bertini fuel holes to to aim at and i. i can't think of them playing other than wimbledon where a couple of years ago a hook did get set of djokovic. Twos of seven five and six seven two sets In not in bear which is credited without set so Yeah i think there is quite a strong case. Actually that Jovic withdraw the face bertini in terms of game styles. You could possibly be. The bertini might deal with the occasion better but her catches a masters one thousand winner. He don't with facing federal center coot today like it was like it was a breeze disruptors. Because he doesn't get talked about very much bit lack severe cannon. Oh someone hopes up every now and then doesn't mean he's just there. Oh look he's. Just beaten stiffness. It's about just beaten down a method that i think overall just bertini's built up self belief with all of these winds is makes him the favourite for that match and the bigger threat to jackovitch in the final so those two semi finals.
