Sporting Hero and Why? Roger Federer. He has the model mentality - calm, cool collected and also has huge amounts of flare. He has learnt to control his emotions and also when to use his flashy shots and when to not, I think that is what has made him the best ever.


Comment on TT :  Hardest sport to master I think. The physical demands are hugely underrated as well as the mental. A game/match can fly by in a heartbeat so it's important to be in control at all times and be resilient. If I could give my younger self some advice, it would be on the psychological aspect - to forget mistakes and focus on the next point and what you can change. In addition, I think it's important to know your weaknesses, have a plan for every session you have, and never waste a second on the table.
