One of this years most exciting new book coming out have been "The Master: The long run and beautiful game of Roger Federer" written by Christopher Clarey. Clarey has covered global sports for The New York Times for more than 25 years. He have over the years interviewed everyone in the tennis world from Björn Borg to the stars of today and is today known as one of the world's leading tennis journalists and have reported from more than 90 Grand Slam tournaments. In this special episode we focus on Clareys great new book about Federer and I get to ask him about: - why he decided to write a book about Federer at this time, even before his career is over - Federers attitude and temper on the court and how big part his parents have played in the change of that - when Robert Federer told Roger that he needed to be top 100 at a certain age - what part Pierre Paganini, Federers fitness coach, have played in his success - the rivalry and friendship with Rafael Nadal - all the matches Federer have lost when holding match points and the reason behind the big numbers of lost matches when being just one point away and how Federer have learned to move on from setbacks - the great "dentist-story" I can highly recommend the full book which is available in 17 languages (including Swedish).
