Roger Federer is certainly impressed by the next generation of tennis stars and has kindly offered them some pearls of wisdom of how they can make the step from ATP star to tennis great.

Isn’t it great to get some advice from the one of the finest player of tennis ? Certainly it is.

The 19-time Grand Slam champion believes the likes of Denis Shapovalov, Alexander Zverev, Nick Kyrgios and Dominic Thiem all have what it takes to be ranked among the world’s best, and that they are all already adding plenty of value to the tour.

The quartet have convinced Federer they can go far in the sport but he picked out six things they all need to have in place in order to make the transition from a top player to a tennis legend.

‘(To be a legend), you need hard work, passion, and a good team, good training facilities, and being able to withstand pressure, and understanding the tour, making it like the second home,’ he told Gulf News.

‘It takes a little bit more time, but they are doing great. ‘It’s nice to see these young talents in the tour, and they make tennis a better place and exciting for fans.’

Not in the field of tennis, these six points will help you in every aspect of your life

Shapovalov, 18, burst onto the scene over the summer, reaching the semi-finals in Montreal before storming through qualifying to reach the fourth round of the US Open, while Thiem, 24, enjoyed a run to the semi-finals of the French Open.

Zverev, 20, has climbed as high as fourth in the ATP rankings in an incredibly impressive season – winning two Masters 1000 titles – while Kyrgios, 22, has been to the quarter-finals of both the Australian Open and Wimbledon in the past.

On asking about the future plans of Federer, he insisted that he’s not focused on hanging up his racquet just yet. ‘I know it [retirement] is sooner or later,’ he told Gulf News. ‘I know I’m not 22 anymore, but I don’t have a date. ‘If the body allows me to play, my family allows me to play, if the success is still there, if I’m happy to travel, I will continue.

‘But the four things have to work, if one of the four doesn’t work, it maybe the time to stop. But for now, it’s ok.’ Federer’s form in 2017 has been the subject of amazement for the majority of onlookers, although he has played a reduced schedule.

The father of four skipped the clay-court season in order to gear up for Wimbledon as effectively as possible and he’s learnt that spending less time on court keeps him more motivated to peak at the most important moments. ‘For me, I have come to realise that sometimes less is more,’ he added.
