In an interview to Idnes, the American skier Mikaela Shiffrin commented on what her main idols are. Shiffrin mentioned many tennis players: "Roger Federer is my favorite. But I love Djokovic and Nadal too. I liked watching Andy Murray and I am excited by Dominic Thiem.
Obviously on the women's side Serena Williams and it's so emotional now to see Naomi Osaka. She has a real style, she is strong. Hopefully, she continues like this." What sport would Shiffrin have liked to be good at beyond ski? "Wow.
Difficult to say. If I could really choose something I would be good at, I take tennis. That would be a dream. But ski is already enough for me." On Miss Ester Ledecka, Shiffrin added: "She is super cool. She is not here for the snowboard, which probably tells about her entire story.
I can only imagine how difficult is to be the best both in ski and snowboard. It's something amazing for all of us. But she is a good person. She is relaxed, but so focused on what she does. And very funny." On what's next in the ski season, Shiffrin concluded: "We are all tired now but I am looking forward to it.
Spring is coming, it's almost summer. I love winter, but the summer too. The environment at the World Cup is a more relaxed one." Shiffrin and Federer had an advertisement video together in Chicago
