French journalist Benoit Maylin made some staggering comments about the former world number one Roger Federer.
The 42-year-old is often regarded as one of the best players in the history of men’s singles tennis in the Open era.
Maylin, in his podcast, stated that the more he thinks about the personality of the Swiss tennis star, the more he thinks of his megalomaniacal side.
"The older I get, the more I begin to ask myself questions about the image I have and had of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic,” he said. “The further we go, the more I realize that Novak Djokovic is the clean man, the image man of this sport."
