“You Have To Go Through Such Moments”: Marc Rosset
But such moments pass easily if you have adequate support. Following this, Rosset also reminisced an occasion where he supported his friend and compatriot. He held up with the former number one when he needed him.
“When Roger was in Melbourne for the Davis Cup, he wanted to visit Carter’s parents. I went with him to be there for him – it’s normal with friends. And I hope a few people will do it for me too if I need to.”, He said.
According to the Swiss, such events in a player’s life are more educational than the tournament wins. Such are the events that help the player develops into who is. Rosset believes in learning from such moments and in growing by absorbing in those memories.
“After such a tragedy, we always have regrets. We say to ourselves that we could have foreseen. And then you can’t stop feeling guilty. You wonder why? If you could have changed the course of things? You have to go through such moments; they are more formative than an Olympic victory. If you win a medal, you’re happy, and everyone congratulates you, okay. But grief triggers more intense emotions.”, Marc concluded.
