Roger Federer is considered by many as the greatest tennis player of all time. The 38-year-old Swiss has won a staggering 20 Grand Slam titles and has spent a record 310 weeks as World No.1. Federer is the undisputed emperor of the grass court. The iconic Swiss has won the Wimbledon title on eight occasions and has given tennis aficionados memories that will last a lifetime.
Federer won the Wimbledon Championships for five consecutive years between 2003 and 2007, a time when he was unchallenged on the grass courts. His bid for a record sixth consecutive title was thwarted by his great rival Rafael Nadal, who beat him 6-4,6-4,6-7,6-7,9-7 in the 2008 Wimbledon final. This match between the two men will be etched in the memories of tennis fans for a long time, for the ethereal performance that they provided on that day.
Federer won the Wimbledon in 2009 again, edging out Andy Roddick 5-7,7-6,7-6,3-6,16-14. After a gap of two years, Federer won the title in 2012, by defeating Andy Murray in four sets to equal Pete Sampras’s record. And then, in the year 2017, the emperor won a record eighth Wimbledon title, defeating Marin Cilic in straight sets.Published 04 Feb 2020, 12:26 IST
