Bartoli reflects on Roger Federer
According to former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli, it is impossible to gauge Roger Federer’s mind and emotions, especially during his press conferences. As such, Bartoli reckons that only Federer knows when and how he will bring an end to his illustrious career. “I’ve learned something about Roger: it’s impossible to read his mind; impossible,” Bartoli said. “You can listen to all of his press conferences, read [articles about him].… You can think something and the opposite will happen. I think only he knows what he really wants and how he wants to end his career,” she added. “I believe he wants to end on a high and on something that makes him happy.”
