EP 12: Special Guest! Christopher Clarey, New York Times tennis writer, talks about 'The Master,' Roger Federer

Live from the Book Shop: John Updike's Ghost

This week, we're joined by local Christopher Clarey, who will be talking about his book about tennis great Roger Federer, "The Master," at the upcoming Newburyport Literary Festival. Hear about how he decided to write the book, what it's like covering sports in the age of social media, what Roger Federer is really like ("the most interesting thing about him is that he's interested"), and what he thinks about "King Richard," having such an up-close view of the Williams sisters and their father. Along the way, we talk about other great sports books ("Barbarian Days"!) and how you organize a book that could have been 1,000 pages long.

Embracing each moment like Roger Federer: Christopher Clarey

Life Lessons: From Sport and Beyond

What lessons can we take from the approach, attitude and outlook of Roger Federer? Helping me answer that question is Christopher Clarey – arguably the top tennis journalist in the world, who writes for the New York Times. Chris has written a book called ‘the Master – the Brilliant career of Roger Federer’, which has rocketed to the top of the bestsellers list. Federer is not playing at this year’s US Open because of knee surgery – and there are question marks as to whether we will ever see him on court at one of the major’s again. And while he may soon be overtaken by Novak Djokovic on the all-time Grand Slam winners list, you could still argue that no one has had such a big impact on the game as Roger Federer. In this episode we talk about what anyone can learn from the Swiss maestro – and Chris shares many stories to illustrate Federer's lessons – including around treating people with empathy and authenticity, taking care of your own business, planning spontaneity and time to recharge - and choosing to let go of disappointment and resentment. We also talk about what traits Federer took from his parents Robert and Lynette – and how they helped nurture his talent. And crucially, how Roger has a rare ability to treat all moments somewhat equally. Whether it is playing on centre court or doing some of the less enjoyable parts of the job – Roger relishes it, and that is something we can certainly all learn from. ** Follow me: on instagram https://www.instagram.com/simonmundie/ on twitter https://twitter.com/simonmundie And for the 'Mundie on Monday' newsletter - featuring three of the best Life Lessons from three years and more than 150 of these interviews - head to simonmundie.com **additional production by Frank McWeeny** See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

TFP 213: Christopher Clarey - The Long Run and Beautiful Game of Roger Federer

The Tennis Files Podcast

On Episode 213 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I spoke with New York Times correspondent and author Christopher Clarey about his new 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!I hope you enjoy my interview with Chris!
