    TFP 358: Christopher Clarey – The Long Run and Beautiful Game of Roger Federer – From the 2021 archives

    TFP 358: Christopher Clarey – The Long Run and Beautiful Game of Roger Federer – From the 2021 archives

    [From the archive: This episode was originally recorded and published in 2021]

    On Episode 358 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I spoke with New York Times correspondent and author Christopher Clarey about his book: “The Master: The Long Run and Beautiful Game of Roger Federer.”

    Chris is a top international sportswriter and has been a New York Times correspondent for over 25 years. He has covered Roger Federer since the beginning of the Swiss Maestro’s professional career and has interviewed him exclusively more than any other journalist since Federer’s rise to prominence. Chris has just published a new book, “The Master: The Long Run and Beautiful Game of Roger Federer,” this week. It focuses on the pivotal people, places, and moments in Federer's long and rich career and features hundreds of perspectives from him and the many people he played, trained, and interacted with since his early days in tennis.

    I was fortunate enough to read an advanced copy of Chris’s book and have thoroughly enjoyed its detailed insights, entertaining stories, unique humor, and the many teachable principles that we can all integrate into our tennis games and our lives. As a result, I very highly recommend that you pick up a copy of “The Master: The Long Run and Beautiful Game of Roger Federer” here. 

    On the show, you’ll learn the critical decisions that Federer made from a young age which shaped his legendary career, the influence of coaches Peter Carter and fitness trainer Pierre Paganini on Federer’s game and fitness, how working with a sports psychology took his results to the next level, how he manages to live in the present, funny stories about Federer’s mischievous other half, and much more!

Great Tennis Podcast

Mehrban does a great job of finding guest to discuss tennis related topics! There have been many times I found great takeaways from guest. His technology related topics allowed me to discover swing vision and the Proton ball machine. Mehrban is also a very good tennis player! I had the chance to meet him and get to see him play at tennis con live last year.

Dedicated host with access to great guests!

Really enjoying the show. Plenty of excellent interviews along with tips and tricks for improving your game. Good stuff!

GT1only1 ,

The Best Tennis Podcast for recreational players trying to improve, here’s why:

Mehrban started interviewing top coaches so he could improve — we get the benefit.
His episodes cover all aspects of performance, Technique, Tactics, Mental, and Physical.
His guests all explain proven insights that apply to recreational players of every level.
He is an excellent host and has a smooth way of keeping the information flowing
He also makes sure that it is easy for us to absorb with clarifying follow-up questions.
Through this podcast and his annual summit with dozens of top coaches, I have been exposed to so many different perspectives on all aspects of playing — while I am not able to absorb nor implement it all, this has shown me a clear path forward for my own areas of improvement.
I cannot recommend the Tennis Files Podcast strongly enough. Please keep it up, Mehrban! Thank you
