Federer is unarguably the greatest ever Tennis player. See the statistics. Federer, with 20 Grand Slam titles is ahead of all male players. He is competing in an era which is the ‘Golden Age’ of Tennis with great rivals like Nadal, Djokovic, and Murray, who have reduced the number of Grand Slam titles that Federer could have won. Some other aspects which indicate his greatness are:
- At almost 36 years of age, he moves as well as anyone else on the court in modern Tennis. Modern Tennis is witness to some of the best movers on the court in the history of the game like Nadal, Djokovic, and Murray.
- He can match the pace and power of guys who are 6’6”.
- The power of serves and strokes of modern Tennis are way ahead of past years. Raonic serves at 240 km/hr. Thiem hits forehands at 170 km/hr. Federer can handle all these and remain aggressive.
- He moves and plays with grace & not brute force and yet he can beat the biggest hitters & best movers.
