But isn't he just the bestest tennis player. He shames Australia's current tennis players by his on court behaviour. While I am not really a tennis watcher, I cannot help but know about him from tv and other media. I have never seen him slam a racquet to the ground, criticise an umpire or abuse anyone, make excuses for an off match, let along brag about the money he makes. He just plays tennis, really well.
There is no contrast between him and Australia's horrors', Tomic and Kyrgios.
Former tennis champions Boris Becker and John McEnroe are often asked for their opinions on current tennis players. I am not sure why, as they started the rot that is generally acceptable in tennis today. Ultimately it is about money. Bad tennis player behaviour should mean a player is sent off and banned for a period. But the players have created such larger than life personalities, that clubs and media have too much to lose if they are banned, Wimbledon included.
Maybe Federer is the last of the gentlemen tennis players? Yeah, Federer, respect.
