The Swiss superstar said, “I have definitely not hit 2 million serves in my life. I don’t think my shoulder would survive that. I feel though that I may have hit 2 million shots in my life. With all the practices as a junior, doubles you name it. Maybe I’ve hit 2 million shots. But I wonder who’s the person who is counting all the bubbles in the glass. You take a slow-motion video and for how long and how difficult that must be. I don’t even know.”

It is rather hilarious to wonder who is keeping a count of all these shots and services.
