Peter Haas: “It’s almost unbelievable that this type of person exists”

Peter Haas talked to Mark ‘Scoop’ Malinowski about Roger Federer:

Question: You’ve obviously gotten to know Roger, can you share a memory or anecdote that may capture his essence?

Peter Haas: “I know Roger through Tommy. I am very friendly with Mirka. From tennis coaching I know her for ten years before she met Roger at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. I’ve never seen a tennis player – and I’ve met many athletes and champions from all professions throughout Tommy’s entire career – as a person and a complete athlete, Roger is so friendly, so cordial, so open with people. With zero arrogance. The hair on my arm is almost standing up right now. What I’m saying, in essence, it’s almost unbelievable that this type of person exists. He’s such a pure, class act. In other words, he’s humble. Yet he does not need to be.”
