Success is not a coincidence

Tore a page from an issue of SI a week or two ago about Roger Federer. It was too good to pass up:

"For all his talent, he works as hard as anyone else on the men's tour, whether by practicing in Dubai to simulate the hottest conditions imaginable or by maintaining a strict diet.

It's no coincidence that he has gone through his entire career without a serious injury. It's no coincidence that, at 27, he can still play seven rounds of a tournament and have plenty of energy left."
