injuries through all the 20 years as He did not suffer many serious injuries, He faced back pain for long
but He could deal with it perfectly, the durability of Federer and the great comeback of 2017
had a big part in Paganini efforts with Roger as He prepared him in very good conditions
in interview with swiss publication He had been asked how his emotions react when He sees Federer
entering the court in better fitness and answered that He’s happy for him and to be healthy
“Sure, when he reaches his calf, I hope right away that a mosquito stung him and did not pinch a muscle.
“In general, however, everyone who supports Roger feels the same.
“Happiness when he plays and nervousness that everything is going well”
“We, who work with him, also know what’s going on behind the scenes.
“We’ll see right away if he’s having a great day, or just moderate or difficult.
“Based on this information, we often react even more sensitively.”
For the Clay season Paganini mentioned that there are no worries about Roger for the clay
and they prepared very well for the clay surface
“He was rarely injured in the course of his career and in principle no more often on a certain surface.
“It is important when changing surface to quickly adjust to something new in your head, so you have
the right reflexes in the implementation. Luckily, that’s one of Roger’s most underrated qualities.
“His adaptability is fascinating. If I create a different session in training, he will find the optimal version
within a few seconds. I do not just want to be nice with him, but he’s also intelligent. Roger is much
more strategic than you think. His playing style is very spontaneous, but he always thinks one step ahead.”
