Roger Federer always travels with many members of his team and his family. In an interview to Credit Suisse prior to Wimbledon in June, Federer said: 'The team is very important for me. I always feel like you're only as good as your team members.
Compared to the average tennis player, I have a huge team. A big team sometimes can also create a lot of pressure, then you have to play quarter-finals to break the even in terms of money.' Asked how important it is for him to have pressure, the 36-year-old replied: 'I think it's a good thing because if I would never get nervous anymore, that means I don't care so much.
You can't avoid it, we are not robots, we are human beings and sometimes you feel more confident and sometimes you feel overly confident. That's also not a good sign, so you need that right balance.' Federer's perception towards losses has also changed: 'I had a hard time moving on from defeats.
Today, I know every time I walk on a tennis court I try my very best, then you can also deal with it better. Once you change surface and play another match, then it becomes something of the past.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal likely to beat Roger Federer's 20 Slam record - Tim Henman
