Serena On Roger: 'He Is Really The Greatest Player'
WTA superstar Serena Williams won her first-round match at the Emilia-Romagna Open in Parma, and afterwards she had plenty of praise for former World No. 1 Roger Federer, who will play his second tournament of the year this week at the Gonet Geneva Open.
“I think two words sum it up: Roger Federer," Williams said of Federer’s legacy. “He’s just a synopsis of greatness and class and amazing and really changed the game. You see players playing like him, moving like him, doing his techniques. The guy is [a] genius.”
Williams has accomplished everything there is to achieve in professional tennis, and even she admitted she is a Federer “superfan”.
“I just feel like he is really the greatest player. Just look at him," Williams said. “You can’t not like the guy, that’s how I feel. His game is so fantastic. If I could only play like him!”
