Roger Federer: 'I don't ski because I am really afraid of getting injured'

A few days ago, Michelle Gisin reveales she was about to faint when she met Roger Federer on Sunday in St. Moritz after winning the silver medal in the Ski World Cup. Interviewed by Blick, the Swiss tennis player admitted he isn't excited about reading such sayings.

'To be honest I prefer that people remain themselves when they see me. Supporting Swiss athletes for me is a natural oblige, no matter how they are successful. If I can help them in some ways, I am available. Even if they need me for a suggestion or anything.

It's like when I am at the Olympic Village and an athlete asks me for a photo. I never say no. We feel the same emotions watching each other.' Speaking about by what he was impressed the most watching Ski races, Federer added, 'The fact that in a few seconds everything is finished, it's all-in.

You have less time. In tennis it's different.' Federer prefers not to take risk skiing: 'I am really afraid of getting injured. Already putting those heavy shoes would be difficult. Last year I had time to go skiing with my daughers in mountain, but I didn't do it.

They like to ski, this is the right age to learn how to do it.' ALSO READ: David Ferrer: 'Roger Federer dominates the points like no else does'
