Roger Federer is arguably the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) with his 20 slams. At almost 39 years of age, the Swiss Maestro is still one of the most feared players on tour and he has no intention to call it a career.
As per Federer’s words, one of the keys to his success is sleeping. He has always maintained that he tries to keep things simple, like not using fancy “oxygen machines” and ice baths (he hates them). Instead, besides having more enjoyable warmth showers and stretching, he loves sleeping a lot, especially during competitions.
Roger once conceded that: “If I don’t sleep 11 to 12 hours per day, it’s not right. If I don’t have that amount of sleep, I hurt myself.” Apparently, the Swiss Maestro sleeps 10 hours during the night, and he is used to having a 2 hours’ nap during the day.
There are some other successful athletes that also consider a good sleep essential for their performance. Valentino Rossi used to have a nap right before his races; Usain Bolt used to sleep 10 hours per day; James Lebron also likes to sleep 12 hours per day according to reports.
