Abadlali abafana noRoger Federer bafika kanye empilweni, kodwa njengazo zonke izinto ezinhle ukubusa kwabo kwezemidlalo kumele kuphele.

Umdlali wethenisi wase-Switzerland uthathe umdlalo wethenisi wawubeka kwenye indima.

UFederer ube ngumdlali wokuqala wethenisi wesilisa ukuwina izindondo kulandelana, kodwa indlela adlala ngayo emenza agqame.

Ngazo zonke izindlela ube yisibonelo esihle sokuthi umdlalo wethenisi unjani njengoba waziwa ngobukhazikhazi kanye nezinga lokuthobeka kubadlali bawo. 

UFederer obeyikho konke ongakucabanga nakuba ubevele engumpetha.

UFederer uphethe irekhodi lesikhathi eside asichithile njengomdlali wethenisi ohamba phambili emhlabeni njengoba esehlale esicongweni amasonto angu-237.

Kodwa ukuwina ama-Grand Slam angu-20 kunomthelela omkhulu emzimbeni futhi ekugcineni umzimba wakhe omlahlile.

“Njengoba abaningi benu bazi, iminyaka emithathu edlule ingilethele izinselelo ngendlela yokulimala nokuhlinzwa,” kubhala uFederer.

“Ngisebenze kanzima ukuze ngibuyele ekubeni umpetha kumqhudelwano. Kodwa futhi ngiyawazi amandla omzimba wami nemikhawulo yawo, futhi umyalezo wawo kimi muva nje ubucacile.”

UFederer ubuye abe isakhamuzi sakuleli njengoba unina edabuka e-Kempton Park e-Gauteng – ujwayele ukuvakashela kuleli kanti kuthiwa unezindlu zamaholidi khona kuleli.

UFederer ugqugquzele sonke isizukulwane sabadlali bethenisi abazamaya ukuba bazame ukusayina i-backhand yakhe yesandla esisodwa.

Wonke umqeqeshi wethenisi emhlabeni angakweluleka ngokumelene nokusebenzisa isitayela sikaFederer, hhayi ngoba sasingalungile kodwa sicishe sangenzeka. 

Impumelelo kaFederer igqugquzele abadlali abafana noRafael Nadal noNovak Djokovic ukuthi bahambisane naye futhi izimpi phakathi kwalaba abathathu zihlala zikhona.

“Lesi isinqumo esibuhlungu, ngoba ngizophuthelwa yikho konke ukuvakasha. Kodwa ngesikhathi esifanayo kuningi okumele sikubungaze,” kusho uFederer.

Lo mdlali oneminyaka engu-41 ubudala uqeda umsebenzi wakhe ephethe izicoco ezinhlanu ze-Australian Open, isicoco esisodwa se-French Open, eziyisishiyagalombili ze-Wimbledon nezine ze-US Open.

Kodwa akukapheli okwamanje. Abalandeli bazothola ithuba lokugcina lokubuka uFederer enkundleni njengoba ezobe ebambe iqhaza kwi-Lavar Cup e-London ngesonto elizayo, okuzoba umdlalo wokugcina womdlali wethenisi ohamba phambili kunabo bonke owake waba khona.
