Novak Djokovic Knocks on the Door of a Very Exclusive Club

"Today in New York, and some of the most legendary players won't be there because of injury. Serena Williams. Venus Williams, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. 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. I think you have to say that era is over. 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. I think it is over. And now we're looking at Least for now, Novak Against the younger generation until that going for one of the ultimate achievement sport, not just tennis a true Grand Slam. And he had a bunch of talented young guys who are going to try to hold him off. Do you think as he's dealing with this

"In those final rounds per titles anymore. I i sense the things turning the young guys are are coming on their calling them the little store. Now which is kinda funny Zverev medvedev sebastian. But rube f there if you want and those guys are coming in and novak is still around and still hungry and ralph is still going to be a factor place. I just don't i just don't see it. I think but. I don't think he knows that yet. But i've always felt from the last ten years or so that he's taken some private joy in proving people wrong and he has repeatedly people have been asking about retirement since two thousand nine. I kid you not spend twelve years of retirement questions. Even when the guy was still ready to keep rolling so i just think he's got his own sense of confidence and he knows he's putting people around before and i think he wants to his time line but i don't think he's gonna find is going to be kind of comeback. He's looking for when he does come back if he does. I appreciate that. Yeah like has been feels like he's been getting retirement questions forever. Here's the last one and it's very specific to To writing a tennis book internationally. My sense is that This book connor promotes itself. Roger federer's a global global star in the with a capital g And you know known. Worldwide and there are certainly countries where tennis's massive and so i think people would be naturally interested in reading A long form examination about roger the us market. Chris is different You know it's it's it's the book market as you probably know and you'll learn obviously the next couple months is just sort of just uniquely crazy itself and always hard to know what what book sort of captures the public's attention or doesn't and so i just wonder because this is a sports media pockets and we do get into process and stuff like have you thought about just like what is the best way to to sell this book in the states and is it very much maybe target Like the tennis specific audience as best as possible. Meaning like when you're at the. Us open you. You know you try to do book signings you. Try to let people know. I'm i'm really curious. Like i've seen people sell nfl nba books. I'm not sure what the best course of action is to sela tennis book in the states. How do you find like you're going.

"His his pleasure in process and his ability to Reinvents practices travel things. He does with creativity and above all his connection on an elementary level with the public. 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 i liked. What do you think david. I like it too. And i also i do like the cover as well. The it's sharing roger federer in i guess backhand slice completion mode and just shows the full sort of balance and poise. Doesn't it. yeah that's the thing you talk to people like ella ling rape photographer. Who took shots for this book or shared a bunch for shots for the book and said that it's really hard to get roger. Awkward position in a photograph because his body is at baletic natural balance and poise south. It was a nice choice in it could easily picked a inside out leaping forehand for the cover but i thought that was a nice almost insider kind of kind of shot to choose from a personal view the dedication just inside is for my dazzling mum who handed down her love of words and tennis Tell us.

"Roger had already beaten sampras. At wimbledon in the fourth round in two thousand one trying to renegotiate his nike contract. He was not getting anything close to what he wanted so he went out to try to talk to some other people. Bill talks about this other other companies. You talked to everybody. Feel theodore lacoste. Everybody wanted to at at the price. Bill was reinforced. The president trying to get him for which was like a million a year in the first year of the contract which you think about the billion rogers one in his career earned in his career if crazy to think back on that and really as a swiss guy at the time with all his talent. You had lleyton hewitt you had one carlos ferreira. You had murata thin you had. You had andy roddick all these guys. They could have been the guy as far as the sponsors in agents were concerned. It wasn't clear at all that roger was the guy he was one of the guys but he was not the guy so he had just to see how much he had kind of fight and struggle to get to his place in the sun in those early years. Despite people inside the game followed at knowing you had this talent that was fascinating to me and also just to break down things. Like who knew that peter carter also kept his eyes on the ball after he made. Contact david mcpherson. No great coach told me that using knew. Peter carter when he was young. So why does roger keep his eyes in the baltic golfer. A little bit longer after each shot which is really his trademark. Peter carter did it all these kinds of details in the book that i learned along the way that just added dimension and let's face it their worst jobs in the world and having watched roger federer. You're right it's that detail because of having lived through its in in my various roles. There's a certain amount that i already knew. But it's the detail ready sometimes took me by surprise. I also i enjoy your your takeaways on various elements of his career and his rivalries. And you mentioned getting into those was one of the things that you want to do and there. There are a lot of them. We tend to think of jackovitch and the dow first of all but obviously there were many others whole roddick and hewitt ones which i remember really well from from that part in his career but i mean the the ones the one that radi the conclusion that i was maybe most surprised by was was your interest in the jockey. Rich rivalry and chaka. Vich himself in that you. I think you said he was the most fascinating the big three to you. Why was that. Well i think to me. It's not even close to be honest with you. I mean a human journalistic level. I'm not sure as a tennis fan. I would say that or tennis spectator. I would say that. But i was just the whole arc of his career his life the twists and turns of his story. Roger has plenty of those rafa. I think has fewer. I would say it's more of a straight line sort of thing with his backer. You obviously had physical issues and his anxieties but straighter line. But novak i'm it's it's cinematic is life is truly cinematic and i'm sure there will be cinematic. Work done on novak djokovic sometime or another just because of the situation. He was in early in his career his life for this family in serbia the kind of grit that he had probably naturally through family and all they've been through and just to kind of edge they is a group and he brought to to the microcosm of the two were in these to establish figures especially roger who was the most established from the arrived and just seeing novak always searching for something in himself in his entourage in his game in his health. Everything he's just he's a he's a searcher and i feel like a seeker if you will and i. I feel like that. Just gives him a an era of arc. The nobody else in this era possesses. And they're all they're all good stories. Don't get me wrong. I haven't gotten tired of writing about any of them over the years. I think it's it's definitely helped to have all them in the mix because it gives you all these different plotlines and personalities to focus on different times but the way they've played each other. We've all seen a lot of the matches. That's sort of the tip of the iceberg. If you will a below the water there is so much that's happened. And i really wanted for my own memory's sake and hopefully for the people's enjoyment of the in the book we get into those big matches. I wanted people who maybe didn't follow the sport as closely to have a full full picture as possible of of rafa novak before we really dug into those match in the narrative that that was important. I know for me when i know a lot about something or somebody. I'm sorry when i watched them compete or whatever they do. My interest is piqued seinfeld. That was important I it was fascinating. Ready to to relive him in my mind and also to learn new things about what those rivalries meant for him and did did to him and caused him to do because the tendency to well once he cracked it he just had it all to himself from wild and then and then you make it quite clear. Actually the dow was in the slipstream. Pretty early on wasn't he yes he was. That's the thing i mean. People have this impression that like Roger with pete sampras. Who's one of his idols. Now roger basically no toppled his idol at wimbledon in two thousand and one. I think everybody kind of feels. Because there's a pretty decent size age gap rough and roger almost five years. That was similar with them. But really that wasn't the case rough Rafa knew about roger for sure and and took note of his triumphs but he was not the guy.

"On his coach on tour at some point. If peter carter lived. I didn't happen. Roger new all that he owed to peter he knew What a connection had been. And i also. He knew that where he died. He died in south africa And i think there was some guilt there because that was roger always said you gotta go down there and see. This is a great place. 'cause rogers mother was from there i think lynette federer even played a role in helping picard organized that honeymoon trip to africa where he died. Of course it's not the federal fault but there is a link there which i think contributed to the feelings being so powerful and i think roger was also at that age. We're in our forties or fifties losing somebody you care about. It's always tragic when you're twenty one as emotional a person is roger is is empathetic as he is talk about a lot in the book. Yeah just sort of how close as motions to the surface and how deeply he kind of feels for things for people. That's a huge transformational moment to lose somebody who's pivotal free like that kind of a second father figure it hits you in such a profound way and i think his conclusion which is a great boon to tennis and a great boon to ultimately to him is that he decided i think really very concrete you that he wanted to honor peters peter carter's legacy and peter carter's belief in him and there's paper trails of this. Peer smith was australian. Who coached weight. And hewitt and peter carter and a lot of other great ozzy players over the years. No sheridan email. If we the roger had sent to him shortly after. Carter's death saying i'm going to that. You know that. Whenever i play on court think of peter and i'm gonna do can't honor his memory and that kind of thing can fade. But i honestly don't know having watched them a rogers reactions in recent years to talking about. Peter carter still. I'm not sure it ever did entirely fade. And i think it has been the thread running through his career in many ways. That line of motivation. That line of getting the most out of themselves. And i think it's a it's sad to say but i don't think roger not convinced roger would have been the player that he became if peter carter hadn't done actually. It's one of the things that i really enjoyed about. The book is because it it reads like you'll work in the new york times inasmuch as it's it's pro in a lot of people it's not just profiling roger federer. It feels like it's profiling. Peter carter peer paganini and mac of vavrinec who was a tennis plan before she ended up mating roger and and i mean she was managing him to to some degree for a while and she was obviously his girlfriend in subsequent his wife. Is that something that you started out planning to do to to end profiling them and there was the sections on safran lleyton hewitt and it feels like we. I learned a lot about a lot of different people in this book. I probably wasn't really expecting to line delighted to hear that coming from you. Who knows a lot about dennis. My goal with a book was to reach tennis. Nerds like you make and people who follow the game really.

"Very different tennis podcast for you today. Because we are joined by a guest. Christopher clary from the new york times who has written a new book about the life and career of roger federer and it is cold the master. It's a book that chris was kind enough to send to match catherine a myself in advance and we want to talk to him about it and find out everything that t- He went through in terms of the process of writing it. And what he learns in that process Matt's is here with me. He's gonna have a chat about the book after. We've heard this interview with chris clarry from new york times. Well chris great to have you with us as always on the tennis podcast and now with another subject to discuss an really feels like a really meaningful and important subject particularly now because of everything that we've learned about roger federal recently and what he's been going through but before we get into that maybe you could just tell me why a book about federal you've been covering a lot of people over a lot of years why federal i just felt for a couple reasons. David felt like I had had a privileged opportunity in the last twenty years to really spend a lot of time with him and quality time across a number of years in a number of places number of continents. And that i think i would have had a big regret. I'm more of person who wants to live with disappointment instead of regret and I really wanted to. I realized over time capture this. I felt like it was a special opportunity given me in the new york. Times and the international herald tribune and also. I felt like this era. Minnesota's really has been exceptional. And i wanted through rogers story to explore the rivalries and this era and not just novak rafa and andy murray but the ones who came earlier like legged hewitt rod safran andy roddick and i also had access to those people so i felt like it was just add so much material and i really send after the loss to jovovich in the twenty nineteen final in a way that season ended that rogers main body of work was was done now and it seemed like really the right time knowing that. I'm sure he'll do not about or be at some point and There's been a lot of agassi's written. But i don't think anybody's had the access to all the people like i have over such a long period of time and also all his rivals and putting sampras as well so it just seemed like the right moment to do it and you know frankly for some reason with a pandemic. I ended up with a good chunk of time at home. That made it easier to. But it's a book i really think i would have regretted not writing Yeah that's something that struck me reading. It is that it was put together. Although you've written now it was basically put together in several stages over very long period of time. Because i mean how many how many options is did you do you. Reckon you've had to interview him over the course of his career. Oh it's been it's been over twenty exclusives for sure and and then obviously so many times in small groups or news conferences but yeah it's in the low twenty s. I would say over the years beginning in two thousand one and and going through the end of the the twenty twenty nineteen twenty. Twenty was the last ones to now so just a lot of material tone. I printed out all the transcripts from my interviews and one hundreds and hundreds of pages so it was just going through all that was a monumental task and i suppose one of the tasks. He's trying to decide how to use all of that material. Because there's probably a number of different ways. You could write a book like this guys. Had more than half of his forty years is a tennis proud one twenty grand slam singles titles all the wreck codes. How did you come to the decision and the conclusion to write it as you did in the in this set of it felt like you've tightened chronologically you've taken it in meaningful moments and meaningful people in his life and and i guess your your reaction to them your discovers in your senses as well. That's a great question. Neither wonderful question. I really was the biggest challenge to me Of writing the book was organizing all that material. And i did it will radio interviews as well just for the book On top of my reporting over the years is i wanted to go back and talk to people again and people might have missed and try to really get their perspective. Now the rogers getting near the end of his kerr. But i think the big problem was how to marshal all that information and also yes you say to structure also because he no he still is playing as it turns out. I think the odds are against him playing a lot more tennis now. Going forward because of the way things have worked out but It was it had to be still relevant but also i think capture the whole arc of his career and i think i thought hard about maybe trying to focus in on i even thought about trying to do with shots for while we'll take shot and take that as representation and instruction book around his game and then expand from there. Then i think. I just realized i had interviewed him in. So many places and so many places are important to him because of the way he's lived his life and he's he's lived this global life extremely global for the last twenty five years or so and i felt like the way to structure. It was to capture that. And obviously there's a lot of chapters and they cover most of the continence and most of the major places tennis. But i think they were in some cases very in-depth on the place like the chapter on. It could belong in switzerland where he had his Ex patriot moment. I would say when he had to go one how to speak french at age. Fourteen joined the national center there. That's very much inequitable The other chapters. He's gonna use it as more of a leaping off point the place A meeting we had or something had happened to him in that spot but i really wanted to capture his global nature because that's such a huge part of him and it means a lot to him and it was tricky because if the chapter on wimbledon early which i did because that's when he when he wanted obviously he played wimbledon so many times through the years and had many moments so the real challenge was trying to take those places but not they want to bring them back again. I wanted to have them be in there. Once was trying to leave all the things that happened in those places multiple times over the years together. That was the real challenge of the when you go back to the first of those encounters the first sense the you got to him. When was that in an what was it about him. What was he like. I suppose what what did you. What was your sense of him as a player in the person well. The first time. I saw him play in person was actually the french open. grandson debut. We had against patrick rafter. Nineteen.

"roger federer" Discussed on Here & Now

"Publication true. Thanks for taking the time. Yeah thanks so much for having me. Tennis fans can't even escape the grim news with their sport this week over the weekend roger federer announced he's pulled out of the us open for a fourth knee surgery he posted about it. Instagram hobie coaches for for many weeks and then also Out of the game for many months. So it's going to be difficult course in some ways but at the same time I know it's the right thing to do. Because i want to be healthy. I want to be running around later as well again. And i want to give myself a glimmer of hope. Also to return to the tour in some shape or form federer is forty. He has twenty grand slam. Titles tied with novak djokovic rafael nidal. He been hoping to make history at the open new york times sports writer. Christopher clary has written a biography a federal that's hitting the shelves next week Pity the shelves. it's huge. It's titled the master the long run and beautiful game of roger federer. chris first congrats. Thanks rob knows. It's been quite a work in progress. Kind of twenty plus years in the making and it's Definitely poignant to see the situation. He's in now but he's accomplished so much followed him across six continents. You've done twenty long interviews meeting with him in cars as you know at airports you're surrounded by fans let's talk about this headline the knee makes its appearance on page. Three hundred and seventeen. The year is two thousand. Sixteen one of the great players of all time is drawing a bath for his twin daughters also has twin sons. He hears a click in his left knee as he twists. It's a torn meniscus. Now we have a new surgery. What do you make of this news. So he was really kind of blessed for a long time in terms of his his physical health and being able to play deep into his thirties. So the of the moment you describing in melbourne australia when he was running the bathroom as for his kids that was sort of when things began to change but then he came back so strong after that took six months off at the end of two thousand sixteen and came back and had some of his best results. Ever in two thousand seventeen in two thousand eighteen went back to number one at age thirty six and was just kind of a a fairytale run for him there but inevitably game is very grueling. Your body's going to break down at some point in his knees are really betrayed him In the last couple years be his fourth knee operation. He's going to do this. One could be a bit more complicated from what i'm hearing. We haven't heard details yet but this could be a really tough one to come back from when you said a shattering to tennis fans but to those. You know mildly interested. They may know him from rolex ads. You know i mean. He's the beautiful guys any french or something. He's not he's swiss-born but why should they care about roger. Federer who is he you know. Roger is a naturally gifted player one of the most actually gifted ever but he's also a self made man. I've covered him since he was in his teams and have seen evolution. But i don't think i really grasped how challenging was an accomplishment. It was on so many levels. And he's somebody who Started with a bad temper. He learned to manage his temper and his expectations and really became a zen-master on the court working with psychologists and on himself and his coaches he managed to really channel all that nervous energy and frustration and do a a very very composed tennis player in style. Well you know as you say this. It strikes me as as i read your book. Tennis stars get cast enrolls. Nidal is the pugilist and jovovich. The joker federer is now the smooth kind of fred astaire tennis and rolex ads but as you write one commentator called him a mini mcenroe. When he was a kid he would throw his racket. He would scream his there. Was that one story about his father. Throwing him some money in and saying. Get yourself a ride home when he was a kid. That's you know. His parents didn't even like it he was he was not fun no he was. He was tortured. Get a very difficult time. Losing his quite young at the time but their stories from the swiss coaches when he was young about him sitting under the chair empires chair after a junior match lost and crying. Everybody else went to have lunch and their picnic. And roger stayed there on the court in tears basically unable to control his disappointment. So i think we have to recognize the achievement there in terms of being able to master that he's been able to master himself as well as the game and it also applies to awkward things robbins business careers well. He started from a very low point. Unpromising point is a swiss player from the small country even though it's a wealthy country and he built himself into the the most successful financially a tennis player aries earned over a billion dollars on court and off during his career. Well we'll talk about the game itself. There's a scene in the book. Where the great andre agassi. Who is much older than federer plays him at the end of his career. Agassi's in the locker room. He's got his head in his hands. Not because he lost because he says federer is taking the game to a different level. It's just like i can't. I can't go there. What level is that. We'll talk about his game. Well first of all that from coming from andre s story comes from daring. Kale was andres coach for a long time. And darren was blown away by that moment just because he'd never seen andre great long lasting champion had that kind of reaction to imagine. I think it's basically like realizing that technology is moved beyond you or the the world that you're living in. Suddenly you longer fit entirely. That was on andres epiphany that day i think and i think the problem with roger is that when andrea played other players in the past beat pete sampras or boris becker stefan edberg previous great players. He always felt there was a safe place to go. But against roger. Because of rogers ability take the ball early and and create angles and power from anywhere on the court. There was really no safe haven anymore for andrea. And i think that's what he was feeling and he also had a really really hard time reading. Rogers game i think it's just that feeling of being rushed and confused and during rogers heyday players. Felt that way. We'll talk about that. He has with the french call. Relaxed mall looseness and ease. Here's a beautiful play. You talk about how he runs around to do a forehand rather than a backhand. I don't think he ever did a two-handed backhand what what is it about. His play french word which is about relaxing and looseness really does summit up but the question is why and if you talk to people who are part of his career early on a part of it is his childhood coach. Peter carter who was an australian who sadly died in a car accident in two thousand two but he basically built rogers game and one of the things he did was he sort of had him keep his eyes on the ball and the contact point quite a bit longer than the usual tennis player..

"Fakes if there is radiant joy emanating from voices that is because the three of us have just sat together in tennis pocus towers and watch england win three to the euro's final a final if something for the first time in all of our lifetimes and more and more so we will very much do our best to make this the tennis podcast because i know there are a lot of people listening the majority of people listening that either. Don't give to either give no hoots or worse than no. Who's all go to other people for their football analysis. Yes that's possible. Yeah so we really will try and make this the tennis podcast. But if the joy and voice isn't in keeping with the with what we're talking about tennis wise than you'll you'll understand why because it's been a raw the jubilant night for for england fans us included but before that jebron at night we spent a whole day watching tennis. And there's there's a whole lot to talk about from men's quarterfinals day. At wimbledon and one leading story she's three-set defeat averge ephedra to heeb her catch. Three sets that culminated in a bagel. Six love set is how roger federal left wimbledon today. Possibly for the last time he tells us he doesn't know if it will be for the last time that is a discussion. I'm sure will end up having. But i've got ahead of myself because i need to ask you both what adjective beginning with. W would you like to prefix wednesday with. I'm not sure mine too loud. But i'm not try look away. Wednesday is eve managed to find two words. Neither of which begin with. W you're out the game matt. I think it's very hard to find a word that sums up all of those matches that we had. If we're if we're leading with the federer. I think is woeful to too harsh. Yes he was he was bad he was bad he was he was pretty well. He was part. But i just feel the day isn't just about him. Okay well not either beginning. W david so people in glass houses and all that my words matt you allowed another. Go weird Okay elaborate well. Russia federal six offset wimbledon. Yes never happened before never happened before. His first six loves anywhere. Since i think one that everyone remembers his his sixth set in on garrison. Fine of two thousand and eight and look. I had virtue federal losing in the quarterfinals of this tournament at the start of the tournament. Him going out. This stage is not a huge surprise in the context of roger. Federer's life over the last eighteen months I think i felt like medvedev. Going out would help him Her catch was still the highest ranked player. He'd he'd faced on his return and her catch played a fantastic match. I think that's probably why you think woeful is is not the right word because her catch was excellent. Today absolutely This was this was a step back from fatter. Think all tournament. It felt like he'd been not progressing rapidly but taking small steps in the right direction and i. I didn't say this performance coming from him. Today he was he was slow. Really slow i thought to the ball is movement was not sharp and whenever he did have the chance to finish the point or was in the right position he just just missed any missed badly. There was some really shocking shocking. Mrs either sort of sprang it wide or dumping it in the middle of the net. It was it was a sad sight to be honest to say yorkshire federal like that so some massively off his game but you know as i said within the context of federer's last eighteen months ident- think should be that surprising. I think federer is kind of his own worst enemy in terms of how we view in. Because if you look at the last time he came back from something he was kind of rejuvinated and better than ever but he said aligns lines damage press conference that he was hoping to be back for last wimbledon. Jobs it didn't happen because a code. But he barely made it to this wimbledon. That's an indication of just how slow and long and drawn out this recovery and rehab is been post two knee surgeries aged. What is he now. Thirty nine it's an entirely different situations what we had a few years ago. such a good point because i- i- pre-tournament predicted that he would make it to the quarterfinals and lease. I think i had amazing to medvedev. Let me down yesterday anyway. And so i shouldn't feel like this but i do. I feel i feel shocked. And really i mean obviously right now i feel utterly jubilant in the immediate aftermath of the federal match i you know i love her catch a really to. I'm so thrilled for him. But surely every tennis fan understands feeling saddened at one of the all time great male player putting in a performance like that on on his core on the court where he is one bowl titles than any other male player is. It's a it's a sad. Sorry sight So trying to put my finger on. Why exactly. I feel the way i do when when i thought something along these lines woods would happen. I didn't i didn't quite know because it sounds like federal something along. These lines might happen as well. He said you know. I i in amongst the sort of yeah. I'm i'm really disappointed. It was nowhere near good enough today. He said about actually did better than i expected. This thing is a massive achievement..

"When he came back briefly in doha a few months ago he felt like his tennis was still there okay. It was rusty because he hadn't played for so long but what was. Alarming was the fact that he had two matches in his legs. And that was it and he said. I need to go back and train and clearly. That training has paid off and he doesn't seem to have had any further setbacks because he's managed to play about three and a half hour match in pretty much the worst conditions possible for his game. Slow night against the left-hander who is can can chase everything down and who can just make life really difficult for him and yet he's he's finished it strongly and you know if if we're trying to view this match in the context of federer's season which i think we have to because he's talked about that. The french open being preparation for the grass. I think there was so many positive signs with his tennis as well. Yes it's up and down. It's not perfect by any means. But he's doing a lot of good very good things on the call. I think set him up very nicely. Variety wants to be in a few weeks. mataya bertini for him next. Just i'm just quickly. I think it's very easy. The almost the saudi of mind because this was ended up being radio uplifting experience. I mean make that sound unobjective but to see a thirty nine year old. Who is one of the greatest of all time just giving you a little insight into an element of greatness was was inspiring tonight. But i don't want to completely forget about the fact that this mattress played an obsessed time of the night in front of nobody and it really feels a strange decision to to be shambling matches the way they are not from from nine o'clock at night or best of five-set match that They've dodged a bullet with not having ended up with roger federer's very possibly lost ever roland garros match played in the middle of the night in front of absolutely nobody. Now i understand that events events could away from them. Covert wise and the the lack of crowds in the night sessions of the first ten days is unavoidable and broadcast deals. Had already been signed at that point. There was no there was no backing down on having the night sessions whilst this curfew is still in place but the original decision entirely separate to any matters cova to have a start time for these night sessions of nine pm has never been explained to me. And i don't understand. I i can't see who's benasing benefiting from it who is waving the flag and saying nine pm is a great start time for night session. It's exactly what we want. I haven't heard that voice yet. And nobody's communicating it and there's also the point the six of the seven night sessions have been men's matches they put serena room i in every match since then has been amends match and i mean it's time slot which benefits nobody. There was a press. Release that the f. f. t. put out in april. I think saying that the night session would be in their words. The match of the day so by picking those men's matches based on their previous statement. They are saying the the men's matches most of the time of the match the day but also the reality is that slot in front of nobody is a graveyard slot. Nobody wants that. It's it's terrible so kind of nobody wins in this scenario it was. It was very patronizing statement. Wasn't it back in april saying we'll free cool prize money so you compulsively accuse us of ever doing anything sexy staffer. We prizemoney hitching out the at a report that had said that they were only going to have men's matches night session. What niane basically apart from one match.

So demand on the money is the skill set of the person managing that Which is why and it's self serving to say this. We believe you should have a professional working with you to do that. And you know if you ask yourself Even the best basketball player, the best tennis player, you know. Roger Federer, I think is the best tennis player who has ever lived. He has a coach. So why does he have a coach? He's I mean, he's probably the best players ever walked the Earth. And yet he's gotta coach because he understands that he's not objective When it comes his own game. He can't look at himself and somebody a professional, helping him with that could make him better. So it's the same thing. We believe their investments.

second and then we talked about cook off in fifteen years old ousting the defending champ in Melbourne in the cocoa Gough whose I'm sorry in Naomi Osaka who's had a really rough past year or so since she won the Australian Open she's a she struggled a bit and she was really frustrated just imploded in that match but good for cocoa golf at fifteen Serena is out early affect that fourteen years and then Caroline Wozniacki who I talked about earlier in the year she had said that this would be her last major and does she was a champ in Australia in two thousand eighteen I she also lost in the third round and so her tennis career is done though it year she had planned on this being her last chance her last opportunity because she's got married and a mother so she wants to do so congratulations to her and and to cocoa and and now to the other to move into the round of sixteen get down to the nitty gritty the after hours on CBS sports radio how you fill the void this weekend I

yeah I heard your clip earlier dizziness go with their writer talking about brown's coaching change and everything I just thought I call and give you my perspective as a fan thank you every since they came back in ninety nine every year to that they hadn't new new regime changing coaching change whatever always take the I was always cautious you know okay well hopefully this is the right one this is the right group you know it centers that are always there to stay at the home will waiting to see what the maybe they think of what it is the last year oh my gosh I I was Ali and I was pumped I was excited I just knew that they were found you know when the division come going to play Elsa center center going based upon what they did the previous year the way the year under Greg Williams in credit kitchen associate what have you so I the mistake I made last year never do again so I'm back in my guarded wait and see and hope you know I hope that this is the right person this is the right what are the new GM will be you be the right one and center it's at a but I will never make that mistake again okay so just really quick just to clarify what makes right you said you so you last year if you feel like you fell into a trap by believing all of the the preseason buzz that Hey this time it's going to be different and now you feel even more guilty than before yeah yeah it was it was a big big let down I was so in game one I was like I could not believe what I was seeing and and but the the game one against the Titans Titans thirty point loss yeah and all the buildings and I said my wife right which we watch it I see it that's coaching that lack of discipline I said oh my gosh it it it got worse right here and I'll say this with a handle yeah they they have been so impatient and pull the trigger but they had no choice Freddie was one way over his head he just could not guide this team is that the new that that's the part that bothers me it's not like he pulled the wool over their eyes and that they didn't know he had no experience your experience if the like the Jim Tomsula situation in favorites is go after trend bulky and you more about parted ways there was a big clash of personalities they wanted to be was completely the opposite they went with Jim Tomsula he never should have been a head coach it was a bad situation it was sent to the sacrificial lamb they knew what they had a kitchen that they hired in anyway they probably were snowed like I was you know both the way they the Browns ended the season previously that they were playing so dynamically and I think they they thought well I thought that wasn't the head coach Greg Williams was the interim head coach well that that was John Dorsey that wanted Freddy I create so they were led John Dorsey call the shots into which is still there they're responsible being the owners now and I'm not dependent albums have you know they had been a disaster the way they run the team I I'm not saying that I'm not defending them for anything anyway but I you know I do agree that Freddie had to go I mean yeah it is their fault for high he had to go in so I'm just bam back the hoping maybe maybe he will be the guy hope well yeah you don't have one of these years that's going to have the right god that's right I agree with you there thank you so much for your phone call and you have to let you go through at the top but I would agree with you and I think to faith he's got the the credentials he's got the training it's just it's new again and I understand the frustration have a good weekend

"Can Roger Federer win five years in between his grand slam titles I have to go back and look at it really quickly and or get up to the bottom of the hour here but Federer also later in his career he went five years in between grand slam wins and part of that is age part of that is the fact that there are so many other incredible players are Rafael Nadal Novak Djokovic so you're not just playing in a vacuum but my point is if not impossible four three to win another one it's not she could go two more years potentially and could still be a major factor because of her strength because of our power now opponents have figured out how to adjust to it but it doesn't mean she couldn't still went again I'm I've managed to do it amazed to Google it while I was talking to you and so the the Roger Federer streak it was going back to his last his last grand slam title it's amazing how relevant he states that the completely other story but I I feel the same thing about Serena Williams it's amazing that she still at the point at which she can win grand slam matches because saw a lot of times athletes in their late thirties get bypassed by all the use in their sports but every time she loses the question is about her legacy every time she loses the question is about not putting yourself in position to win that twenty fourth grand slam all time it's not even about the slams about just me playing good tennis and I didn't do that today and that is more disappointing so it's not even about the wind or is just more about I'm better I'm better than that and that is what it is for me today and I appreciate that because for the for a lot of us looking out in from the outside that's that's what it's all about winning number twenty four however for her for the athlete she has to stay in the moment where she is she have to be able to focus on the here and now good if you skip the here and now you're never going to get to where you want to go in and that's true of anything in in real life so to speak now her career will go on her BFF Caroline Wozniacki also lost in the third round at the Australian Open today and her career is now done so she had indicated that this would be her last grand slam her last tournament that she was retiring after the Australian Open and I I think the reason she chose the Australian Open is because she won this tournament in two thousand eighteen but she has lost in the third round not that long ago and was understandably emotional when it was done and she is now retired she got married to the former NBA player hi David she whatever his last name David late yes she got married member she was engaged for a long time to write McElroy that whole thing flamed out in really dramatic fashion but then she got married to David Lee and she talked about wanting to start a new life and she's got from the things she wants to do with that's great good for her but her certainly her Australian Open ended before she wanted to they're keeping tabs on what's happening down under I like having live tennis while we're on the radio that's always fun we'd like to the flight bill speaking of golf we at the start of Torrey pines and Tiger Woods without a real strong opening round along with was the Aggies xray McElroy actually can win Torrey pines this weekend and take over the number one ranking in the world for the first time in four years which is also a really impressive O. K. coming up next the Cleveland Browns are restructuring hit the reset button again Kevin debates key in place none of this is his fault I don't blame him there's always a silver lining and so I'm gonna ask our next guest from Cleveland one of the positives let's accentuate the positive shall we there's always a reason for optimism it's always darkest before the dawn you try to drop my cliche thought all right on Twitter a little radio also on our Facebook page thanks so much for tuning in if nothing else I make myself laugh it's after hours with Amy Lawrence here's our latest board update and here's Jay Berman.

"And he's just driving an unreasonable bargain and the executives have flown in from Bristol here to talk to him. They're they're like, they're crawling all over the place, like cockroach, let's be clear. It's note bargain. Okay. We add some talks yesterday, we are inching closer to something were deep inside of negotiations right now. But again, I put a number on the table. I slid it across and I said when you can meet this number. I'm ready to go. And so far no-one has met the number. He actually says being negotiations. It's. Not it's not a joke. He's uttered at several times. And I've realized I'm spread way too thin. So I've flown in some of ESPN's best digital audio premiums your fed up with the managing of this stupidity. It's a fulltime job. It's no, it's two full time jobs. Thanks, dan. But you know, they had they brought three people three damn people ever from ESPN executives of the highest order coming at the same time. They put three more zeros on it. We'd be okay. A few weeks. We've been seven in it a lot lately. Yeah. It seems like every time it snows. Well, that's another thing. This is interesting because these Bristol executives have been taking vacations down here coming down here, and we're like their meetings with the lebatardshow crew, and you look up and everyone's in a bathing suit in the water. They should be trying to get my deal done except for Brodsky. Ross didn't wanna go anywhere near the what kind of Rowley polling anyways. Serena Williams, and Roger Federer Roger Federer. This was funny this week Roger Federer was denied access to the locker room. He was denied access. What's the joke? We missed what happened? I brought skis no longer with a company. So it just pointed up to the heavens to shout. My boy Brodsky and God's was looking at the. Thank you. Is. Tiger mention that is a lot. You know, what this Mike doing the show with? Stugatz. His like doing a show with a cat. If you have a laser pointer. You can just move around. The puppet strings on the back of his neck. You just pointed the heavens r I p David meeting inside joke. An inside joke from my home is still here with us. Just not with those with the company, and you guys is eyes were fixated on the ceiling for ten seconds trying to figure out what I was doing. Franchi's dead. So Roger Federer's STAN was denied access to the locker room at the Australian Open, which is funny because he didn't have his credentials, and no one in the history of the sport it had more credentials like he couldn't get in. He couldn't get in. And I wanna marvel though at on the other side, Serena Williams, and the both of them and their longevity in that particular sport when it drowns, it's young you get lonely. It's so boring monotonous practice. It's just a lonely place, Venus, flamed out, a hell of a lot long little hell of a lot faster than Serena didn't I just wanted to explore the idea how the hell do these two people not get tired of this pursuit? When I mean wasn't Jennifer Capriati in like a drug motels in entertains because of what this sport does to its young people. You can't get into your thirties. And now, she's got a baby the amazing thing about both of them is how consistent you have people who have had these types of careers like Nidal. He. Was great for awhile couple years.
