Roger Federer: The only statistic that matters is how many you win

Roger Federer: Good value in tennis betting markets

Roger Federer has blasted what he perceives to be an over-reliance on statistics in Tennis.

The 20-time Grand Slam winner is rarely on the wrong end of a statistical battle, but insists the level of analysis still frustrates him.

”I never look at statistics,” Federer said.

“There are fanatics of numbers, of how many double faults I made, of how many first serves I hit, of how many points I won.

“I frankly do not care. And I do not care if the winners/errors record is positive or negative.

“What really matters is how you face the opponent: the tactics, the wind, there are so many important things.

“You need to be strong to win, whatever you are number one or not.

“I do not know what my fans think, but fans definitely do not underestimate my toughness during matches.

“It would have not been easy, otherwise, to stay at the top for many years.”
