Improving your strengths

Roger Federer has won 13 Grand Slam titles, second only to Pete Sampras who won 14. Federer won five straight Wimbledon titles (2003-07) and five straight U.S. Open titles (2004-08).

After losing in five sets to Rafael Nadal last month in the Australian Open finals, Federer was asked what he thought he needed to work on:

"You can’t win everything. The idea is to take positives from those setbacks and work at getting better. I have never believed in working on my weaknesses. My serve and my forehand are my strengths and I work on them to get better."

[Here's a great highlight video of Federer.]
