At 36 years of age, Roger Federer is doing everything he can to prolong his fantastic career. Last year, the Swiss legend decided to skip the entire clay court season even if he felt ready for the Roland Garros to preserve his body for the grass court stint.

Roger decided not to play on the dirt also this year, and that attracted some criticism.

It’s not fair. TIRIAC

Talking to the Sport Bild the Ion Tiriac, the former 1970 French Open doubles winner, commented

“Roger Federer is certainly the best player ever, but he does not behave correctly. I do not think his approach is fair.”

Lewis Hamilton does not just say no more after five Grands Prix in Formula One, because he does not feel like it.”

Well, probably Tiriac fails to understand that tennis and formula one are 2 completely different things.

Massive BS. Tiriac like just to say things to get the headlines. Roger is completely entitled to do so and it`s for the good of the sport. What`s the alternative? Roger getting injured?
