Federer's Mona Lisa

" If Federer were a painter his Mona Lisa would be the match he played in the
Tennis Masters Cup Final in Shanghai 2007 against David Ferrer. It was a near
perfect match. That match might have changed the way players play the game
regarding court positioning." - ATP Tour Webpage.

After viewing this video, many people can attest to Federer's mighty greatness.
Great court awareness, positioning, transitions, anticipation, all the elements
are in tune during this match. Ferrer just couldn't keep up with Federer's game.

In another interview Federer stated, " I am a big believer in taking breaks to recover
such as going on vacations and putting the racket down to try and get inspired for the next
time you step on the court again to practice hard."

Great Players have the ability to MAINTAIN A HEALTHY PERSPECTIVE at all times.
