Federer/nadal/murray/djokovic all have very good builds for football. Ultimately we will never know but the amount of coordination/footwork needed for tennis would be handy in football.
I dont know if you watched the interview with peter schmeichel on the atp site but he said that nowadays the football coaches have realised that the best sport to do in conjunction with football is tennis and a lot of players even at the pro level are encouraged to play tennis. i know for a fact that ronaldo absolutely loves tennis.
INB4 yanks calls it soccer.. idiots
Much lower than him having the aptitude for being a world class performer in tennis AND
football - wouldn't you say?
I don't get what point you are trying to make in the bolded paragraph? That tennis is a good complementary sport for footballers to play? I suppose it could well be - but that has no bearing on the chances of Federer being a world class perfromer at football AND tennis.
Finally, the word soccer is an English invention, it came about to differentiate Assoc
iation Football from Rug
by Football - Rugger and Soccer.
