Star tennis player Roger Federer is now preparing for the Australian Open from January 14. Last month when he was in Dubai, he gave an interview. He gets emotional when he questioned about his former coach Peter Carter. He said, “I still remember him. The technique of my game is gift by him.” Carter passed away in a road accident in 2002 at the age of 37. A year later, Federer won his first Grand Slam title.
When 37-year-old Federer was asked if he had Carter, what would he think of winning his 20 Grand Slam? Federer started crying over this question. He said, “I wish he were, I still remember him very much, I hope he will be proud, I have never been so emotional like this.”
Federer said, “I think they did not want to let my talents go waste. His demise was a painful moment for me, but I started working hard after that. They were the most important men for me. I want to thank him for the technique.”
