Roger Federer Retirement news: Highlights of Federer

  • Roger Federer won his first grand slam championship at Wimbledon in 2003 when he was just 21 years old, and within 14 months he had established his domination. At his best between 2004 and 2007, he had a 247-15 (94%) record, meticulously redefining what excellence in the men’s game meant.
  • The standard that Federer set prompted prominent opponents to follow, and as a result, Rafael Nadal, now 36, and subsequently Novak Djokovic, now 35, rose to prominence to create the big three, probably the finest era of men’s tennis.
  • The figures and accomplishments only cover a small portion of Federer’s biography.
  • Roger Federer spent some of his formative years as a ball kid at the Swiss Indoors in Basel, which he still frequently references.
  • He was born in Basel to a Swiss father, Robert, and a South African mother, Lynette.
  • Despite the apparent talent that made him stand out, Federer’s volcanic temperament and lack of court discipline were well known when he was younger. Federer built on those early skills to become a player whose poise under pressure was a key to his success.
  • The ease with which Roger Federer appeared to move through the sport made his accomplishment even more significant in the eyes of many.
  • Roger Federer stood out at a period when modern tennis was still moving back towards the baseline because of his fluid, effortless style, his eagerness to continuously explore the net, and his arsenal of strokes that was as diverse as any in the world.

Roger Federer transcended the sport to become one of the most well-known athletes in the world thanks to his accomplishments, style, and charming personality. He is still by far the biggest earner in the sport even after winning the 2018 Australian Open, his last grand slam victory, four years ago.
