Tennis Career Highlights
Roger Federer, Switzerland Born : 1981 in Basel. Federer holds the record for number of weeks as World No1. A complete all court player with superb ground strokes and serve - volley game . Seven times Wimbledon and five times US Open champion , he  dominated Tennis for  four years. In 2008 he lost the No1 spot to Nadal who has been his nemesis on clay. As younger challengers test his powers, his winning of the French Open has completed the Grand Slam of Majors He passed  Sampras in  all-time career Grand Slam wins with his 15th victory at the 2009 Wimbledon Championships. His claim to the title of "Greatest Ever" is very strong. 2010 began with his 4th Australian Open and in a season dominated by Nadal, he ended with victory in the ATP Finals. After losing his World No1 status he finished 2011 strongly with a repeat victory in the ATP Finals. In 2012, after 2 years without a major, he equalled Pete Sampras' record of 7 Wimbledon titles. After a quiet 2013 he returned to competitive form in 2014 helping Switzerland to its first Davis Cup. As his competitive success began to wane Federer became prone for the first time in his career to injury but amazingly after a 6 month lay-off he returned at the beginning of 2017 to champion form. Victory at the Australian Open was his first Grand Slam title for 7 years and his 18th overall confirming his status as the greatest player of all time !! To top off his annus mirabilis he won a record 8th Wimbledon crown. At the age of 36 he achieved his 20th Grand Slam title in Australia. A year later he achieved his 100th ATP title win.
