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.
Federer holds several records of the Open Era: holding the world No. 1 position for 302 weeks; winning 17 Grand Slam singles titles; reaching each Grand Slam Final at least five times; and reaching the Wimbledon final nine times.
He is among the seven men, to capture a career Grand Slam.
Federer shares an Open Era record for most titles at Wimbledon with Pete Sampras and at the US Open with Jimmy Connors and Sampras.
Federer appeared in 25 men's singles Grand Slam finals, with 10 in a row, both records, and appeared in 18 of 19 finals from the 2005 Wimbledon Championships through to the 2010 Australian Open.
He also recorded semifinals at 23 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments, from the 2004 Wimbledon Championships through the 2010 Australian Open.
