Experts & Not-So-Experts Weigh in on How to Beat Roger Federer
We all know that Roger Federer is practically unbeatable, but that didn’t stop the International Herald Tribune from asking a plethora of random personalities, including athletes, parents of athletes and sports psychologists, just how they would go about defeating Pong.
Here are some of the best ideas:
I think you have to get him emotionally out of balance. And to get him emotionally out of balance, you have to check in the hotel next room to Roger and make all the possible noise in the room that he couldn’t sleep. Don’t let him get any sleep, and steal his luggage and his rackets so that he couldn’t play. You can kiss his girlfriend, and maybe he’d get jealous, you know, he’d get upset and whatever. Put a sleeping pill in his drink so that he barely can walk on the court. Ambien works pretty good.

I guess I would have to tie his legs together so he couldn’t move. If that didn’t work I would wear a short skirt, and hopefully that would distract him.

You first pay him enough money not to show up. That’s the first thing you do. If he turns that down, then you try your best to get a baseball bat and break his leg, because he runs so fast. Now, if he gets away from you, then the next one is just to sit like I do and watch him play, then you can beat anyone just sitting in the stands because you never miss a shot.

After coming up short against Roger time after time, Andy Roddick might want to take notes, while Roger might want to watch his back, knees and girlfriend.
