Radhika Gupta took to X to share how Federer's speech was "simple, thoughtful and vulnerable". She also shared about three things that stood out for her from the speech.

First, she wrote, "Everybody can play well in the first two hours when you are fast, fit and clear. It is when your body is tired, mind wandering and discipline fading that a champion finds a grip on themselves. Resilience is lasting for the long term."

She then said, "Talent is not gift, but grit. It has a broad definition. Trusting yourself is talent. Patience is talent. Discipline is talent. The process is talent. Managing yourself is talent. In the investing world, too, all these are talents, more than picking funds and stocks."

Lastly, she added, "A legend won 80% of his matches but only 54% of his points. You don't need to win more than that in life and investing. Champions don't win every point; they realise they will lose points and learn how to deal with failure and learn from mistakes."
