Today, Roger Federer took another step in becoming his GOAT, winning his 8th Wimbledon title. Tennis legend Boris Becker suggested that it wasn't just time on the court that helps him succeed.
"We thought it's impossible to win 18 Grand Slams - then he won his 18th and 19th Grand Slam. The secret is his family life - they are a great supportive base. Maybe the struggles with other players is that they try to please everybody."
Becker's words are worth considering. Improvement and success cannot be obtained by just hard work and talent alone. It requires external support. Do you have the support you need to become your own GOAT?
Federer's win in numbers
8 - his record eighth Wimbledon title
19 - more Grand Slam wins than any other man
35 (and 342 days) - the oldest man to win Wimbledon in the Open Era
5 - years since his previous Wimbledon win
3 - the third man to win multiple Slams without dropping a set
