As you can see in the first link above, Roger and Steffi Graff, who happens to be one of my favourite female players as well, was named top role models of sport by a survey of 1500 people run by Barclays. Now I don’t know where they found these people, but I think it’s a pretty good result nonetheless. Tennis was also named the most positive sport, as you can see in the second link. That brings us to the conclusion that Roger could well be the most positive role model in all of sports. And why not? I’ve written about this before in my post Federer Last Man Standing as Woods Falls from Grace . Tennis seems to be a pretty clean sport, and none is cleaner than Roger himself. I mean the guy is just the ultimate sportsman and role model. Tiger Woods used to be a good role model, but look at how he turned out.
It’s good to know I am a fan of such a positive sport, and more specifically a fan of such a positive role model. That makes this blog pretty special if I may say so myself. Most tennis blogs you find will be about tennis in general, because there is just so much more to write about when you follow tennis in general as opposed to a specific tennis player. Unless of course your blog follows Roger Federer. It’s amazing how much interest there is in this special tennis player and human being, and rightly so. I’m proud to be a Fedfanatic and proud of this blog, and so should you! Neither Roger nor this blog is the same without you!
