Andrew Castle: Roger Federer's greatest skill is that he hasn't got bored

Former British tennis player and commentator Andrew Castle is impressed to see that Swiss Roger Federer is still fighting hard and leaving it all on the court in his matches. Despite being 37 years old, world No. 3 Federer's dedication and commitment to the game remain at the highest possible level as the Swiss is still motivated to compete and win the biggest titles.

"Federer's greatest skill, or greatest gift, is that he hasn't got bored," Castle opinioned while commentating the Federer and Jay Clarke Wimbledon second round match on the BBC. "He hasn't got bored of being out there and playing."

Meanwhile, record 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer has safely cruised into the Wimbledon third round after beating British wildcard Clarke 6-1 7-6 (3) 6-2. After feeling the pressure and losing the first set easily -- world No.

169 Clarke put up a much better effort in the second set -- but still, it wasn't enough as the Swiss controlled the tie-break from the beginning until the end to take a two-set lead. The record eight-time time Wimbledon champion then broke Clarke twice in the third set to seal the win and set up a third-round meeting against No. 27 seed Lucas Pouille.
