Championship drive

One essential success factor champions possess is an all-consuming passion to win.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was a violent sore loser as a child; I believe he even broke a TV after losing a video game.

Here’s Roger Federer as a child:

“He was a really bad loser,” remembered Madeleine Bärlocher, Federer’s first coach at the Old Boys Tennis Club in Basel. “After he’d lose a match he’d sit under the umpire’s chair and cry for half an hour sometimes. The other players would already be in the clubhouse eating sandwiches and he’d still be crying on the court.”
