A collection of memorable quotes on Roger Federer, my role model, my inspiration and the greatest player ever. Will keep updating them 🙂

“Connors loved to fight, Sampras loved to win; Federer just loves to play.”
–John McEnroe

“I’ve always thought of Roger Federer as the Baryshnikov of tennis, possessing a similar ability to apparently bend time to his will as he executes the most difficult of physical feats -– and to do it with both grace and clarity, making it look not just easy but inevitable.”
–Rosyln Sulcas, The NY Times

“The guy has single-handedly separated himself from a world-class field year after year after year in a way that’s probably never been done.”
–Andre Agassi

“I threw the kitchen sink at him but he went to the bathroom and got his tub”
–Andy Roddick

“In an era of specialists, you’re either a clay court specialist, a grass court specialist, or a hard court specialist…or you’re Roger Federer.”
— Jimmy Connors

“If he is playing very good, I have to play unbelievable. If not, it’s impossible, especially if he’s playing with good confidence. When he’s 100 percent, he’s playing in another league. It’s impossible to stop him. I fight. I fight. I fight. Nothing to say. Just congratulate him.”
—Rafael Nadal

 “Interviewer: Last time, at Wimbledon, you said “Next time I may have to punch him.” Do you have a plan B?
Kick him.”

—Andy Roddick

 “The consistency in the big tournaments is ridiculous. No one will ever match that.”
—Andy Murray

 “In this age of nuclear equipment and super-sized players, Federer plays with the deftness of long-ago men of modest size in long white slacks, rolled-up shirtsleeves and wooden rackets.”
—Sportswriter George Vecsey

He’s the most gifted player that I’ve ever seen in my life.  I’ve seen a lot of people play.  I’ve seen the (Rod) Lavers, I played against some of the great players—the Samprases, Beckers, Connors, Borgs, you name it. This guy could be the greatest of all time. That, to me, says it all.”
—Tennis legend John McEnroe

“His shot-making is second to none.”
—Lleyton Hewitt

“Roger can produce tennis shots that should be declared illegal
—Tracy Austin

”But there’s probably — I don’t think there’s anyone that hits the ball like that. Sure, if you take Roddick’s serve and Agassi’s returns and my volleys and Hewitt’s speed and tenacity, then you’ve probably got a good chance against Federer (laughter). That’s a lot of people involved in, you know, one player.
—Tim Henman

“Oh, I would be honored to even be compared to Roger. He is such an unbelievable talent, and is capable of anything. Roger could be the greatest tennis player of all time.”

“He deserves everything he gets.”
—Andy Roddick

“He’s got everything. He’s a legend. Now he’s an icon. He’s got 15 majors—that’s a lot of majors. That’s a lot of work.”
—All-time great Pete Sampras

“The Greatest? I have to give it to him. The critics say Laver, and Nadal’s beaten him a few times, but in my book he is.”

“For the next four or five years, his competition will be the record books.”

“The game needs him…let’s hope he has the same drive that Sampras had for so long “
Hall of Famer Jack Kramer

“He’s creating every point as it should be.”
—Former Swiss Davis Cup coach Jakob Hlasek

“This is a guy who buys drinks for photographers and thanks reporters who show up for his press conferences.”
—Sportswriter Rene Stauffer

“Roger has this natural instinct for getting better—and he did. I find that incredible. I always had someone to tell me if something was wrong. He just feels it.”
—Martina Hingis

“I wish I could play like Roger Federer.”
—Serena WIlliams

“He’s a really great guy. He respects people.”
—Doubles partner Jonas Bjorkman

“Tennis has never seen anything quite like him.”
—Sportswriter S.L. Price

“If you want to be a tennis player, then mould yourself on Roger Federer. I won three Wimbledon titles and I wish I could play like him.”

“Roger’s forehand is the greatest shot in our sport.”

“This guy is the real deal, and his game is the whole package.”
—Broadcaster Patrick McEnroe

“He can hit from anywhere on the court and plays with elegance.”

“You can talk to Roger like a simple man on the street.”
—Swiss tennis official Roger Brennwald

“Roger is a magician.”
—Russian star Marat Safin

“He’s a genius.”
—2004 French Open Champion Gaston Gaudio

“We have a guy from Switzerland who is just playing the game in a way I haven’t seen anyone – and I mean anyone – play before. How fortunate we are to be able to see that. If he stays healthy and motivated – and the wonderful feel he has stays with him – he is the kind of guy who can overtake the greatest.”
—All-time great Boris Becker
