“I collected a lot of posters of various events that have been in the early 90-ies of XX century. All the players of that time were in my album. Gathered all about the tournaments, the trophies, the players even met with all of them. And then I became Balboa in the tournament in his native Basel, where he also did not forget to take autographs from the players. Previously, it was easier, because the self did not exist” — quoted Federer Tennis World USA.
