Roger Federer is an international Swiss tennis superstar known worldwide for his aggressive volleys at the net as well as his winning personality offcourt and impressive sportsmanship oncourt.

At his best, Federer could be unbeatable on a grass court surface. His grass court skills have led him to win eight Wimbledon singles titles with his first coming in 2003 at age 21.

You will find Federer competing on the center courts only where he has won a record 20 Grand Slam men's singles titles. Federer shares this record he shares with Rafael Nadal of Spain and Novak Djokovic of Serbia. Federer has been world No. 1 in the men's professional tennis rankings a total of 310 weeks - including a record 237 consecutive weeks - and has finished as the year-end No. 1 five times. Federer has won 103 men's professional singles titles, the second most of all-time behind Jimmy Connors of the USA, including a record six men's professional year-end tournament finals. Federer plays in an era where he has dominated men's tennis together with Nadal and Djokovic, who have been collectively referred to as the Big Three and are widely considered to be the three greatest tennis players of all time.

In 2004, Federer won three out of the four major singles titles, a feat he repeated in 2006 and 2007. From 2005 to 2010, Federer made 18 out of 19 major singles finals. During this span, he won his fifth consecutive titles at both Wimbledon and the US Open. He completed the career Grand Slam at the 2009 French Open after three previous runner-ups to Nadal, his main rival up until 2010. At age 27, he also surpassed Pete Sampras's then-record of 14 Grand Slam men's singles titles at Wimbledon in 2009.
