HACK:

  • Roger Federer was once insulted saying he is good for nothing but to serve coffee
  • This was told by a coach in Federer's first tournament
  • He further revealed that his coach made him grow in anger and changed his personality

Can one imagine that Tennis ace Roger Federer, who has claimed 19 Grand Slams in his career, was once insulted saying he is good for nothing but to serve coffee.

Federer, rather than losing confidence with that, practiced day and night to prove himself

"There was a coach at my first tournament who told me, at most, you can have coffee in a bar with those hands. You have no talent boy," media quoted Federer, as saying.

The 36-year-old, who is also the world no. 2, revealed that his coach made him grow in anger and changed his personality.

"I got up at night to practice. I would put on the lights in the garden and hit against the wall hundreds of times. I hit forehands, backhands.every kind of shot until I could convince myself that each was perfect," he added.

But the tennis fans should thank the coach, as he in a way gave the world a tennis legend.
