First of all thanks to a friendly GTT reader/Fed Fanatic for helping me “curate” these Roger Federer Wimbledon videos. There were so many I didn’t know where to start! Here are some of the best so far.
*UPDATED* The videos just keep coming. I’ll try to update this post for the next day or so, otherwise I’ll have a homepage full of Roger Federer vids (I know some of you are asking “And what’s wrong with that?)
Okay, not a video but a great interview with Roger via ESPN radio – he even talks about the 15 jacket! Click here.
Roger’s Facebook videos make me think of another Roger – Mr. Rogers. Especially with the zip up jacket – it could almost be a cardigan (ack, memories of 2008!) Here you go kiddos:
I read somewhere that before the Champions Dinner, Roger Federer did interviews with over 24 television stations. Pretty sure this was one of those interviews. I think it’s really cool to hear that Roger never doubted that Pete would make the trip:
So happy that ESPN posted this on their site (before I had a crappy quality version.) This might be my favorite Fed Video of all time. ALMOST MADE ME CRY. ESPN’s Rick Reilly writes a letter to BabyFed. (Thanks to “Auburngirl” for the heads up.)
A really nice 7 minute long interview from Monday with CNN. Roger talks about how he’s looking forward to the changes that BabyFed will bring as well as spending the next 3 – 5 weeks at home in Switzerland. Thanks to “whynotme” for sharing!
Here’s Tiger Woods on what he admires in Roger. Interesting and kind of cool that the two guys talk or text everyday. Guess it isn’t just a Nike friendship, after all:
Here’s Mats “Wilanders” Wilander talking in depth about Roger and his place in history. Catch that comment about Roger being “bigger”?
ESPN’s post match interview with Roger Federer where he talks about his “amazing summer,” being a “young 28,” and possibly playing Nadal at the US Open:
Federer’s achievements from a Champion’s perspective. Great comments by Laver, Sampras and Navratilova:
Pete Sampras elaborates on his return to Wimbledon and watching Federer break his record. Can’t believe he’s flying across the world twice in two days. Live a little, Pete!:
The big ATP tribute video to No. 15. “Roger Federer really is the power and the glory in men’s tennis.” Oh YES! Pure Fedophile porn.
Match highlights, of course:
Click here for the trophy ceremony (the BBC’s nabbed it from youtube.)
Some of Federer’s comments in his post-match presser, with a focus on the “cruel” side of the sport:
But victory must be sweet for Roger right now! And the tennis world a very happy place.
Enjoy the glow, Fed Fans!
