When I retired from tennis I wanted to do other things with my life.
I was fascinated by a compelling character embroiled in a controversial topic that told the story from a different point of view.
I just hated to lose.
I’m amazed that years after I stopped playing tennis, people still recognize me in restaurants and ask for my autograph.
Roger Federer is stylish.
I wanted to win, even in practice.
It’s not easy to part with the trophies. However, I do need to have some long-term financial security for those close to me.
Basically I started playing double handed on both my forehand and backhand side because my first racket was very heavy.
I’m an actor who plays an intriguing character, not a political pundit.
I play tennis five hours a week, from Monday to Friday, for one hour every day. I like to be fit. If I can’t exercise, I feel bad – I need to sweat and run to feel like I’m in good shape.
You know growing up in Sweden meant we had a lot of rain when we played tennis. We were taught on clay courts but because of the weather, we had to go indoors a lot.
If you’re afraid of losing, then you daren’t win.
You never know how long Federer is going to play, but in my opinion he has at least one or two more grand slams to win. It depends how long he stays motivated. For me, he is the greatest player to ever play the game.
I enjoy fashion.
You have to find it. No one else can find it for you.
