Roger Federer is a Swiss professional tennis player who is currently ranked world No. 2 by the Association of Tennis Professionals.
Many commentators and players regard Federer as the greatest tennis player of all time.
He has been ranked inside the top 10 since October 2002 and the top 20 since April 2001.
