Athletes tend to be in a tier of their own. Top tier athletes in their respective sports usually have top-notch gym routines, top-notch recovery methods, and top-notch nutrition to keep them at the top of their game. But tennis star Rodger Federer may be putting that theory to the test.
In case you haven’t been following tennis for the last twenty years, Roger Federer is one of the best in the game. With over twenty Grand Slam Titles (think tournament wins vs the best in tennis), he is the record holder for most Grand Slam titles ever in the sport. But what exactly does it take to create a legacy like that? It all starts in the kitchen.
Roger Federer starts each morning before a match with waffles and fruit compote and a large glass of orange juice. The juice is normally accompanied by coffee and a small shot of vinegar. But fueling for a match is different.
For a pre-match lunch, he eats a bowl full of pasta and sauce. And to finish a tournament-winning day, Roger Federer usually eats some sort of Italian or Indian food with, of course, some ice cream for dessert. Talk about carb loading.
