Personal life Childhood and early life Federer was born in Basel, Switzerland.[23] His father, Robert Federer, is a Swiss-German from Berneck in the Canton of St. Gallen, and his mother, Lynette Federer (née Durand), is an Afrikaner from Kempton Park, Gauteng, in South Africa. Federer has one sibling, his older sister, Diana,[24] who is the mother of a set of twins.[25] Since his mother is South African, he holds both Swiss and South African citizenship.[26] He grew up in nearby Birsfelden, Riehen, and then Münchenstein, close to the French and German borders, and he speaks Swiss German, Standard German, English and French fluently, as well as functional Italian and Swedish; Swiss German
Swiss German
is his native language.[23][27][28][29] Federer served as a ball boy at his hometown Basel
Basel
tournament, the Swiss Indoors, in 1992 and 1993.[27][30]

Federer's signature

Like all male Swiss citizens, Federer was subject to compulsory military service in the Swiss Armed Forces. However, in 2003 he was ruled "unsuitable" and was subsequently not required to fulfill his military obligation.[31] Instead, he served in the civil protection force and was required to pay 3% of his taxable income as an alternative.[32] He grew up supporting F.C. Basel
Basel
and the Swiss national football team.[33] Federer also credits his hand-eye coordination to the wide range of sports he played as a child, including badminton and basketball.[34] Family Federer is married to former Women's Tennis
Tennis
Association player Miroslava Vavrincová. He met her while they were both competing for Switzerland
Switzerland
at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Mirka had retired from the tour in 2002 because of a foot injury, seven years before she married Federer.[35] They got married at Wenkenhof Villa in Riehen
Riehen
near Basel on 11 April 2009, surrounded by a small group of close friends and family.[36] In July 2009, Mirka gave birth to identical twin girls, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva.[37] The Federers had another pair of identical twins in 2014, this time boys whom they named Leo and Lennart (known as Lenny).[38][39] Philanthropy and outreach In 2003, he established the Roger Federer
Roger Federer
Foundation to help disadvantaged children and to promote their access to education and sports.[40][41][42] Since May 2004, citing his close ties with South Africa, including that this was where his mother had been raised, he began supporting the South Africa-Swiss charity IMBEWU, which helps children better connect to sports as well as social and health awareness. Later, in 2005, Federer visited South Africa
South Africa
to meet the children that had benefited from his support.[43][44][45] Also in 2005, he auctioned his racquet from his US Open championship to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina.[46] At the 2005 Pacific Life Open
2005 Pacific Life Open
in Indian Wells, Federer arranged an exhibition involving several top players from the ATP and WTA tour called Rally for Relief. The proceeds went to the victims of the tsunami caused by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. In December 2006, he visited Tamil Nadu, one of the areas in India
India
most affected by the tsunami.[47] He was appointed a Goodwill Ambassador by UNICEF
UNICEF
in April 2006 and has appeared in UNICEF public messages to raise public awareness of AIDS.[48][49] In response to the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Federer arranged a collaboration with fellow top tennis players for a special charity event during the 2010 Australian Open
Australian Open
called 'Hit for Haiti', in which proceeds went to Haiti earthquake victims.[50][51] He participated in a follow-up charity exhibition during the 2010 Indian Wells Masters, which raised $1 million.[52] The Nadal vs. Federer "Match for Africa" in 2010 in Zurich
Zurich
and Madrid
Madrid
raised more than $4 million for the Roger Federer Foundation and Fundación Rafa Nadal. In January 2011, Federer took part in an exhibition, Rally for Relief, to raise money for the victims of the Queensland floods.[53][54] In 2014, the "Match for Africa 2" between Federer and Stan Wawrinka, again in Zurich, raised £850,000 for education projects in Southern Africa. On 24 November 2017, Federer received an honorary doctorate awarded to him by his home university, the University of Basel. He received the title in recognition for his role in increasing the international reputation of Basel
Basel
and Switzerland, and also his engagement for children in Africa through his charitable foundation.[55] Tennis

career Pre–1998: Junior years Main article: Roger Federer
Roger Federer
junior years Federer's main accomplishments as a junior player came at Wimbledon in 1998, where he won both the boys' singles final over Irakli Labadze,[56] and in doubles teamed with Olivier Rochus, defeating the team of Michaël Llodra
Michaël Llodra
and Andy Ram.[57] In addition, Federer lost the US Open Junior final in 1998 to David Nalbandian. He won four ITF junior singles tournaments in his career, including the prestigious Orange Bowl, where he defeated Guillermo Coria
Guillermo Coria
in the final.[58] He ended 1998 with the No. 1 junior world ranking, was awarded ITF junior World Champion, and entered his first tournament as a professional during 1998 in Gstaad, where he lost to Lucas Arnold Ker in the first round. 1998–2002: Early professional career Main article: Roger Federer's early career Federer entered the top 100 ranking for the first time on 20 September 1999 and started at the 1999 Marseille Open defeating the reigning champion of the 1998 French Open, Spaniard Carlos Moyá. His first final came at the Marseille Open in 2000, where he lost to fellow Swiss Marc Rosset.[59] Federer won the 2001 Hopman Cup
Hopman Cup
representing Switzerland, along with Martina Hingis.[60][61][62] The duo defeated the American pair of Monica Seles
Monica Seles
and Jan-Michael Gambill
Jan-Michael Gambill
in the finals. Federer would later say that winning the Hopman Cup
Hopman Cup
with Hingis "definitely helped me to become the player I am today."[63] Federer's first singles win was at the 2001 Milan Indoor tournament, where he defeated Julien Boutter
Julien Boutter
in the final.[59] Although he won his first title already in 1999 on the Challenger tour, winning the doubles event in Segovia, Spain
Spain
with Dutchman Sander Groen, the final was played on Federer's 18th birthday. In 2001, Federer made his first Grand Slam quarterfinal at the French Open, losing to former world No. 2 and eventual finalist Alex Corretja. His run to the French quarterfinals launched him into the top 15 for the first time in his career.[64] His international breakthrough came at the 2001 Wimbledon Championships, where a 19-year-old Federer faced the four-time defending champion and all-time Grand Slam leader Pete Sampras. The teenage Swiss stunned the seven-time Wimbledon champion and No. 1 seed in a dramatic five-set epic to reach the quarterfinals.[65] In the quarters he faced Englishman Tim Henman, eventually losing in an overtime fourth-set tiebreaker. Federer's breakthrough at Wimbledon signaled the record-breaking dominance he would display at the All England Club over the next two decades. The first final he reached at the prestigious Masters level came at the 2002 Miami Masters
Miami Masters
event, where he lost to former and future world No. 1 Andre Agassi
Andre Agassi
on hard court.[66] Federer won his first Master Series event at the 2002 Hamburg Masters on clay, over Marat Safin; the victory put him in top 10 for the first time.[66] Federer made 10 singles finals between 1998 and 2002, of which he won four and lost six.[59][66][67][68][64] He also made six finals in doubles. Of note are Federer and partner Max Mirnyi's defeat in the final of the Indian Wells Masters in 2002, and their victory in the same year in the final of the Rotterdam 500 series event. Federer had won the latter a year earlier with partner Jonas Björkman.[66][64] He finished 2001 with an ATP ranking of No. 13, and 2002 was the first year he was ranked within the top 10, finishing at No. 6. 2003: Grand slam breakthrough at Wimbledon Main article: 2003 Roger Federer

if he made it to the Montreal final. However, he fell in the semifinals to Roddick, in a final-set tiebreaker, leaving him 120 points behind Agassi.[70] This, coupled with early losses to David Nalbandian
David Nalbandian
at Cincinnati and the US Open, denied Federer the chance to become No. 1 for the duration of the season. Federer won his first and to date only doubles Masters Series 1000 event in Miami with Max Mirnyi[71] and made it to one singles Masters Series 1000 event in Rome on clay, which he lost.[69] Federer made it to nine finals on the ATP Tour and won seven of them, including the 500 series events at Dubai and Vienna.[69] Lastly, Federer won the year-end championships over Andre Agassi, finishing the year as world No. 2, narrowly behind Andy Roddick

by only 160 points.[69] 2004: Imposing dominance

tennis season During 2004, Federer won three Grand Slam singles titles for the first time in his career and became the first person to do so since Mats Wilander in 1988. His first major hard-court title came at the Australian Open

over Marat Safin, thereby becoming the world No. 1 for the first time. He then won his second Wimbledon crown over Andy Roddick.[72] Federer defeated the 2001 US Open champion, Lleyton Hewitt, at the US Open for his first title there.[72] Federer won three ATP Masters Series 1000 events, one was on clay in Hamburg, and the other two were on hard surfaces at Indian Wells and in Canada.[72] Federer took the ATP 500 series event at Dubai and wrapped up the year by winning the year-end championships for the second time.[72] He also won his first tournament on home soil by capturing the Swiss Open in Gstaad. His 11 singles titles were the most of any player in two decades, and his record of 74–6 was the best since Ivan Lendl

in 1986. He reached the year-end world No. 1 ranking for the first time. 2005: Consolidating dominance Main article: 2005 Roger Federer

Andre Agassi
in the latter's last major final.[73] Federer also took four ATP Masters Series 1000 wins: Indian Wells, Miami and Cincinnati on hard court, and Hamburg on clay.[73] The win in Miami was particularly noteworthy as it was the first final contested between Federer and Nadal. Federer recovered from two sets and a break down to take the final in five sets. Furthermore, Federer won two ATP 500 series events at Rotterdam and Dubai.[73] Federer lost the year-end championships to David Nalbandian
David Nalbandian
in five sets while playing through a foot injury that sidelined him for almost the rest of the season after September.[74] He maintained his position as world No. 1 for the entire season.[73] Federer won 11 singles titles, which ties his 2004 season. Federer's 81 match victories were the most since Pete Sampras
Pete Sampras
in 1993, and his record of 81–4 (95.2%) remains the third-best winning percentage in the Open Era behind John McEnroe's 1984 and Jimmy Connors's 1974. 2006: Outstanding season Main article: 2006 Roger Federer
Roger Federer
tennis season The 2006 season was statistically the best season of Federer's career. In November 2011, Stephen Tignor, chief editorial writer for Tennis.com, ranked Federer's 2006 season as statistically the second-best season of all time during the Open Era, behind Rod Laver's Grand Slam year of 1969.[75]

Federer hits a forehand at the 2006 US Open, where he became the first man in history to achieve the Wimbledon-US Open double for three consecutive seasons

Federer won 12 singles titles (the most of any player since John McEnroe in 1984) and had a match record of 92–5 (the most wins since Ivan Lendl
Ivan Lendl
in 1982). Federer reached the finals in an astounding 16 of the 17 tournaments he entered during the season. In 2006, Federer won three Grand Slam singles titles and reached the final of the other, with the only loss coming against Nadal in the French Open. This was Federer and Nadal's first meeting in a Grand Slam final.[76] He was the first man to reach all four finals in a calendar year since Rod Laver
Rod Laver
in 1969. Federer defeated Nadal in the Wimbledon Championships final. In the Australian Open, Federer defeated Marcos Baghdatis,[76] and at the US Open, Federer defeated Roddick (2003 champion).[76] In addition, Federer made it to six ATP Masters Series 1000 finals, winning four on hard surfaces and losing two on clay to Nadal. Federer, however, consistently pushed Nadal to the limit on clay throughout the season taking him to fourth-set tiebreakers in Monte-Carlo and Paris, and a thrilling match in Rome that went to a deciding fifth-set tiebreaker. Federer won one ATP 500 series event in Tokyo and captured the year-end championships for the third time in his career, again finishing the year as world No. 1.[76] Federer only lost to two players during 2006, to Nadal four times in finals, and to 19-year-old Andy Murray
Andy Murray
in the second round of the 2006 Cincinnati Masters, in what would be Federer's only defeat before reaching the final of a tournament that year. Federer finished the season on a 29-match winning streak, as well as winning 48 of his last 49 matches after the French Open. A personal highlight for Federer came near the end of the season when he won his hometown tournament, the Swiss Indoors

for the first time, having finished runners up in 2000 and 2001, and missing the tournament in 2004 and 2005 due to injuries. 2007: Holding off young rivals Main article: 2007 Roger Federer

tennis season In 2007, Federer reached all four Grand Slam singles finals, winning three of them again. He won the Australian Open

in the final. This made him the first man in the 21st century to accomplish the feat, as Björn Borg
Björn Borg
at the 1980 French Open

was the last to win a Grand Slam tournament without the loss of a set.[77] Federer had entered the year on a huge winning streak and after capturing his fourth Dubai crown Federer's winning streak stood at 41 matches, the longest of his career and only five shy of the record. Federer entered Indian Wells as the three-time defending champion, but his streak would end in controversy. He was defeated by an Argentine, Guillermo Cañas, who had failed a drug test for illegal doping.[78]

Federer was coined "Darth Federer" by fans and commentators at the 2007 US Open

This surprising first-round defeat marked the first time since August 2006 he suffered defeat, a period spanning over seven months. During the clay season, Federer's victory in the Hamburg Masters
Hamburg Masters
final was particularly impressive, as it snapped Nadal's 81-match winning streak on clay, an Open-era record. Federer turned the match around from a set down to sweep 12 of the final 14 games, including a final set bagel. At the French Open, some anticipated that Federer could become the first man in almost 40 years to hold all four majors simultaneously, having just resoundingly defeated young rival Nadal on clay entering the tournament. However, in a repeat of the previous year Federer played a tough four-set final against Nadal, but was undone by going 1/17 on break-point chances.[79] At Wimbledon, Federer entered the tournament not only as the four-time defending champion, but also riding a 48-match winning streak on grass. Once again, he defeated Rafael Nadal
Rafael Nadal
for a second consecutive year in the final, this time in a thrilling five-set encounter that many analysts hailed as the greatest Wimbledon final since 1980. Victory at Wimbledon equaled him with Björn Borg
Björn Borg
for the record of five consecutive championships at the All England Club. Federer reached the final in Montreal before playing a young and relatively unknown Serbian named Novak Djokovic. Djokovic proved his potential by stunning the world No. 1 in a final-set tiebreaker upset. Federer rebounded in Cincinnati to capture his fifth title of the year. Federer entered the US Open as the three-time defending champion and faced Djokovic in the final. This time, Federer prevailed in a close straight-set match. Victory in New York moved him ahead of Laver and Borg for third on the all-time list of major championship victories. Throughout the tournament, the American press labelled him Darth Federer for his all-black attire (which included tuxedo-striped shorts) and the tournament played The Imperial March
The Imperial March
from Star Wars when he was announced onto the court for each of his matches.[80] He would close out the year with victories in Basel
Basel
and the Year End Championships in Shanghai. He finished the season as the year-end world No. 1 for the fourth year in a row, demonstrating his dominance, and during these four years he won 11 Grand Slam singles titles. After his phenomenal triple Grand Slam season yet again, Federer became the only player in history to win three Majors in a year for three years (2004, 2006, 2007).[81][82][83][84] It was the third consecutive season that Federer would hold the world No. 1 ranking for all 52 weeks of the year. 2008: Illness, fifth US Open and Olympic Gold Main article: 2008 Roger Federer

tennis season Federer's success in 2008 was severely hampered by a lingering bout of mononucleosis, which he suffered from during the first half of the year.[85] At the end of the year, he suffered a back injury that prove to be recurring throughout his career. In 2008, Federer captured one Grand Slam, a singles title at the US Open over Andy Murray.[86] Federer was defeated by Nadal in two Grand Slam finals, the French Open
French Open
and Wimbledon, which was regarded as the best match of tennis history by many, when he was going for six straight wins to break Björn Borg's record.[86] At the Australian Open, Federer lost in the semifinals to eventual winner Djokovic, which ended his record of 10 consecutive finals.[86] He lost twice in Masters Series 1000 finals on clay to Nadal, at Monte Carlo and Hamburg.[86] Federer captured three titles in 250-level events at Estoril, Halle, and Basel. At the Olympic Games, Federer and Stan Wawrinka

with few predicting him to win the elusive Parisian title having lost to Nadal in the final weekend for the past four seasons. After Nadal's unexpected defeat to Robin Söderling, Federer suddenly became the overwhelming favorite. It would not be easy as, in his next match, he was forced to come from two sets and break point down in the third set to defeat Tommy Haas

in five sets.[90] He was also forced to fight back from a two-sets-to-one deficit against a young Juan Martín del Potro to win a five setter in the semifinals.[90] In the final, he faced Söderling, and with straight sets victory, he finally captured the Coupe des Mousquetaires
Coupe des Mousquetaires
and career Grand Slam.[91] This victory also tied him with Pete Sampras

for the most Grand Slam singles titles. Federer immediately turned his sights to the grass courts of Wimbledon, where he breezed his way up to the final. In the championship match he faced long-time rival Andy Roddick

in what would be their eighth and final meeting at a Grand Slam. Roddick pushed Federer into a record-setting fifth set, which the Swiss claimed 16–14 to win his 15th Grand Slam singles title, breaking the all-time record of Pete Sampras. Federer continued his summer run by winning his third title on the lightning-fast courts of the Cincinnati Masters, defeating Novak Djokovic in the final.[90] At the US Open he defeated Söderling in the quarters and Djokovic, for the third consecutive year, in the semifinals. On the penultimate point of the Djokovic match he hit what many consider to be the greatest shot of his career, a tweener winner, to set up match points.[92] Federer played del Potro in the final and led two sets to one before ultimately losing a fourth-set tiebreaker and subsequently the match.[90] The 2009 season was perhaps the most historically relevant of Federer's career as he completed a career Grand Slam by winning his first French Open
French Open
title and won a men's record fifteenth Grand Slam singles title at Wimbledon, surpassing Pete Sampras's mark of fourteen.[90] The Wimbledon final was also historic for being the longest Grand Slam final in terms of games played with Federer prevailing 16–14 in the fifth set. Federer finished the season as the year-end world No. 1 for the fifth time in his career. 2010: Fourth Australian Open Main article: 2010 Roger Federer

titles.[86] Since Wimbledon 2005 Federer had made 18 out of 19 finals in Grand Slam tournaments, a period of sustained excellence unparalleled in the Open Era. This tournament, however, would mark the end of his utter dominance at the majors. At the French Open, Federer won his 700th tour match and 150th tour match on clay.[93][94] However, he failed to reach a Grand Slam semifinal for the first time since the 2004 French Open, losing to Söderling in the last 8 and relinquishing his No. 1 ranking,[93] having been just one week away from equalling Pete Sampras's record of 286 weeks as world No. 1. In a huge upset at Wimbledon, Federer lost in the last 8 again to Tomáš Berdych
Tomáš Berdych
and fell to No. 3 in the rankings for the first time in 6 years and 8 months.[93][95][96] Towards the middle of July, Federer hired Pete Sampras' old coach Paul Annacone on a trial basis to put his tennis game and career back on track.[97] At the 2010 US Open, Federer reached the semifinals, where he lost a five-set match to Novak Djokovic

and Wimbledon final. They then met in the 2009 Australian Open
Australian Open
final, the 2011 French Open
French Open
final, and the 2017 Australian Open
Australian Open
final. Nadal won six of the nine, losing the first two Wimbledon finals and the second Australian Open
Australian Open
final. Four of these finals were five set-matches (2007 and 2008 Wimbledon, 2009 and 2017 Australian Open), with the 2008 Wimbledon final being lauded as the greatest match ever by many long-time tennis analysts.[190][191][192][193] Of their 38 meetings, 13 have reached a deciding set. They have also played in 12 Masters Series finals, including their lone five-hour match at the 2006 Rome Masters which Nadal won in a fifth-set tie-break, having saved two match points. Federer vs. Djokovic Main article: Djokovic–Federer rivalry Federer and Novak Djokovic
Novak Djokovic
have played 45 times, with Federer trailing 22–23 wins.[194][195] They are tied 17–17 on hard-courts and 4–4 on clay while Federer trails 1–2 on grass. The Federer–Djokovic rivalry is the largest rivalry in men's Grand Slam tournament history with a record 15 matches played against each other. Djokovic is the only player besides Nadal to defeat Federer in consecutive Grand Slam tournaments (2010 US Open and 2011 Australian Open, also 2015 Wimbledon, US Open and 2016 Australian Open), and the only player besides Nadal and Murray who has double-figure career wins over Federer. Djokovic is one of two players (the other again being Nadal) on tour to have defeated Federer in straight sets at a Grand Slam event multiple times (2008 Australian Open, 2011 Australian Open, 2012 French Open) and the only player to do so three times. Of their 45 meetings, 15 have reached a deciding set. Federer and Djokovic first played in a Grand Slam final at the 2007 US Open where the three-time reigning champion and world No. 1 Federer emerged victorious in straight sets. Federer ended Djokovic's perfect 41–0 start to the 2011 season in the semifinals of the French Open, but Djokovic was able to avenge this loss at the 2011 US Open in five sets after saving two match points against Federer for the second straight year.[196] In the semifinals of Wimbledon 2012, Federer beat defending champion and world No. 1 Djokovic in four sets.[197] The two met again during the finals of the 2014 Wimbledon Championships
2014 Wimbledon Championships
with Djokovic emerging victorious after five sets.[198] Federer also ended Djokovic's 28 straight wins in China at 2014 Shanghai Open. Federer and Djokovic rematched in the 2015 Wimbledon Championships
2015 Wimbledon Championships
with Djokovic once again claiming victory in four sets.[199] The pair met once more for the final major of the season, the 2015 US Open and once more Djokovic prevailed in four sets.[200] Many experts have included the rivalry between Federer and Djokovic as one of the best rivalries in the Open Era.[201] Federer vs. Murray Main article: Federer–Murray rivalry Federer and Andy Murray
Andy Murray
have played 25 times, with Federer leading 14–11. Federer leads 12–10 on hard courts, and 2–1 on grass. They have never met on clay.[202] The two have met six times at the Grand Slam tournament level, the first three times in the finals, Federer winning all three of these matches; at the 2008 US Open[203] and the 2010 Australian Open,[204] both of which he won in straight sets, and at the 2012 Wimbledon Championships in which Murray took the opening set, but went on to lose in four sets. However, Murray won their encounter in the semifinals of the 2013 Australian Open, defeating the Swiss for the first time at a Grand slam tournament in five sets. At the 2014 Australian Open, Federer reversed that result, defeating Murray in four sets in the quarterfinals. The most recent meeting between the two in a Major was in the semifinals of the 2015 Wimbledon Championships, where a dominant Federer triumphed in straight sets. They met in the final of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, in which Murray defeated Federer in straight sets, denying the Swiss a career Golden Slam. Murray also leads 6–3 in ATP 1000 tournaments, 2–0 in finals. They have also met five times at the ATP World Tour
ATP World Tour
Finals, with Murray winning in Shanghai in 2008,[205] and Federer in London in 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2014.[206] Murray is one of only three players to have recorded 10 or more victories over Federer (the other two being Nadal and Novak Djokovic). Federer vs. Roddick Main article: Federer–Roddick rivalry Federer and Andy Roddick
Andy Roddick
played 24 times, and Federer leads their head-to-head 21–3. Roddick lost his world No. 1 ranking to Federer after Federer won his first Australian Open
Australian Open
in 2004. Their rivalry includes four Grand Slam event finals, three at Wimbledon and one at the US Open, all won by Federer.[207] Roddick himself said it was not much of a rivalry, being so one-sided.[208] In the 2009 Wimbledon
2009 Wimbledon
final, Roddick lost to Federer in five sets. The match included a 30-game fifth set (a Grand Slam final record) and lasted over four hours. In the final game of the deciding set, Roddick's serve was broken for the first time in the match. With that victory, Federer broke Pete Sampras' record of 14 Grand Slam singles titles, and Roddick apologised to Sampras (who was there) for not being able to stop Federer. Federer vs. Hewitt Federer and Lleyton Hewitt
Lleyton Hewitt
have played 27 times, which Federer leads 18–9. Early in their careers, Hewitt dominated Federer, winning seven of their first nine meetings, including a victory from two sets down in the 2003 Davis Cup
Davis Cup
semifinal which allowed Australia
Australia
to defeat Switzerland. This marked a turning point in the rivalry, as Federer would win 16 of the next 18 meetings from 2004 onwards. This is Hewitt's longest rivalry as these two first played each other as juniors in 1996. They met in one Grand Slam tournament final, the 2004 US Open final, where Federer won his first US Open title in a lopsided encounter in which Federer scored a bagel on both sides of a second-set tiebreak. Federer met Hewitt at six of the Grand Slam tournaments in which he lifted the trophy, including all five of his triumphs between 2004 and 2005. Their last meeting was at the 2014 Brisbane International, where Hewitt triumphed over Federer in three sets for his first title since 2010, when he also beat Federer to the Halle title. Hewitt and Federer teamed up in the men's doubles at Wimbledon in 1999. They lost in the third round to Jonas Björkman
Jonas Björkman
and Pat Rafter.[209] Federer vs. Agassi Federer and Andre Agassi
Andre Agassi
played 11 times, and Federer leads their head-to-head 8–3. This was Federer's most significant rivalry with a dominant player of the previous generation. They first met in only the third tournament of Federer's career at the 1998 Swiss Indoors
Swiss Indoors
in Federer's hometown, with Andre Agassi
Andre Agassi
prevailing over the 17-year-old. Agassi also defeated Federer at the 2001 US Open and the finals of the Miami Masters
Miami Masters
in 2002. Federer began to turn the tide at the Masters Cup in 2003, when he defeated Agassi in both the round robin and the final. They played a memorable quarterfinal match at the 2004 US Open that spanned over two days, with Federer eventually prevailing in five sets. At the 2005 Dubai Championships, Federer and Agassi attracted worldwide headlines with a publicity stunt that saw the two tennis legends play on a helipad almost 220 meters above sea level at the hotel Burj al-Arab. Their final match was at one of the most prestigious platforms in the sport, when they played in the finals of the 2005 US Open. Federer was victorious in four sets, claiming the 6th Grand Slam tournament of his career and denying Agassi his 9th. Federer vs. Čilić Federer and Marin Čilić
Marin Čilić
have played 10 times, with Federer leading 9–1.[210] Čilić's only victory came in the 2014 US Open semifinals, after which he went onto win the Grand Slam title. Their first encounter was in the 3rd round in the 2008 Paris Masters, which Federer won in straight sets. They have played five Grand Slam matches, two in Wimbledon, two in the US Open, and at latest in the 2018 Australian Open
Australian Open
final, of which Federer leads 4–1. They have played two Grand Slam finals, the 2017 Wimbledon final, which Federer won in straight sets and the 2018 Australian Open

Juan Martín del Potro
and Roger Federer
Roger Federer
have played 25 times, with Federer leading 18–7.[211] They have met seven times in Grand Slam tournaments, with Federer leading 5–2. Their two most famous Grand Slam tournament meetings came in 2009. The first was in the French Open semifinals, when Federer survived a five-set clash when he was on his way to the only French title of his career. The second was in the final of the US Open, where del Potro stunned five-time defending champion Federer in five sets, ending his 20-match winning streak at Grand Slams. Another high-profile match was in the semifinals of the 2012 London Olympics, where Federer prevailed 19–17 in the final set to secure the Olympic silver medal. They also met in the finals of the Swiss Indoors
Swiss Indoors
in 2012, 2013 and 2017, with del Potro prevailing on first two occasions, and Federer on last one of them in tight three-set matches. In the 2017 U.S. Open quarterfinals, in a rematch of the 2009 US Open final, Del Potro again stunned Federer in four sets to end his unbeaten streak in grand slams that year. With this win, Del Potro also denied the first Federer-Nadal match at US Open, as in 2009 where he crushed Nadal in straight sets in the semifinals. Federer, however avenged this loss at the Shanghai Masters semifinals, where he beat del Potro in three sets after coming from a set down. Federer vs. Safin Marat Safin
Marat Safin
and Federer played 12 times, with Federer leading 10–2.[212] Federer and Safin turned pro within one year of each other, with Safin turning pro in 1997 and Federer in 1998. Federer leads 4–1 on hard courts, 3–0 on grass, and 3–0 on clay courts, while Safin leads 1–0 on carpet. Notable meetings include Federer's defeating Safin at the 2002 Hamburg Masters to win the first Masters 1000 title of his career, as well as Federer's emerging victorious in the semifinals of the 2004 Tennis
Tennis
Masters Cup, after winning a tiebreak 20–18 on his eighth match point. Federer also defeated Safin in the finals of the 2004 Australian Open
Australian Open
to capture his first Australian Open
Australian Open
and second Grand Slam tournament title. However, Safin defeated Federer in the 2005 Australian Open
Australian Open
semifinals, having saved one match point in the fourth-set tiebreak, to end a 26-match winning streak by Federer.[213] They met each other five times in Grand Slam tournaments, with Federer leading 4–1. Federer vs. Nalbandian Federer and David Nalbandian
David Nalbandian
have played 19 times, with Federer leading 11–8.[214] David Nalbandian
David Nalbandian
was Federer's biggest rival in his early career. Nalbandian dominated early on, winning their first five matches from 2002 to 2003. Federer reversed this trend at the 2003 Masters Cup, where he recorded his first victory, and would go on to win 11 of their last 14 meetings. Federer leads 6–5 on hard courts, 1–0 on grass, and 3–1 on clay courts, while Nalbandian leads 2–1 on carpet. Notable meetings include Nalbandian's win in a fifth-set tiebreaker to win the 2005 Masters Cup, and Federer's win in the 2006 French Open
French Open
semifinals. They met each other six times in Grand Slam tournaments, with Federer leading 4–2. Federer vs. Berdych Tomáš Berdych
Tomáš Berdych
and Federer have played 26 times, with Federer leading 20–6.[215] Federer leads 12–5 on hard courts, 3–1 on grass courts, 4–0 on clay courts, and 1–0 on carpet. Berdych won their first professional match, notably upsetting then world No. 1 Federer at the 2004 Summer Olympics. Federer then went on to win their next eight meetings, before Berdych ended the losing streak in 2010. Between 2010 and 2013, Berdych won 5 of 8 meetings. Federer then switched to a larger racquet in 2014 to prevent being overpowered by players like Berdych and leads 9–0 since. They have met ten times in Grand Slam tournaments, with Federer leading 8–2, and Berdych is one of five players, along with Arnaud Clément, Álex Corretja, David Nalbandian, and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, to defeat Federer multiple times in majors before the semifinal stage. Their most notable Grand Slam matches took place in the 2009 Australian Open, when Federer prevailed in five sets after dropping the first two sets, the 2010 Wimbledon Championships and the 2012 US Open, both of which Berdych won in four sets. Berdych went on to reach the only Grand Slam final of his career after the Wimbledon quarterfinal victory which was significant as it ended Federer's run of seven consecutive finals at Wimbledon dating back to 2003.[216] Federer vs. Tsonga Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
and Federer have played 17 times, with Federer leading 11–6. Federer leads 5–3 on outdoor hard courts and 4–0 on indoor hard, while Tsonga leads 1–0 on grass. They are 2–2 on clay courts.

They have also one Grand Slam semifinal meeting in the 2010 Australian Open, with Federer winning in straight sets. Federer and Tsonga have played in the 2011 ATP World Tour Finals final and the Swiss maestro won his record-sixth Year-End Championship, after a three-setter. The pair have also met in two ATP World Tour Masters 1000
Masters 1000
finals. The first was in the 2011 BNP Paribas Masters, with Federer winning his first title in Bercy, and the second was in the 2014 Rogers Cup, with Tsonga winning his second Masters 1000 title. Federer vs. Wawrinka Federer and his fellow Swiss player Stan Wawrinka
Stan Wawrinka
have played each other 23 times, with Federer leading 20–3. Federer leads 6–1 in Grand Slam tournaments, 15–0 on hard courts, 1–0 on grass courts and 4–3 on clay courts. The pair are 1–1 in finals. Their first meeting in a final came at 2014 Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters where Wawrinka defeated Federer in three sets to win his first Masters 1000 title before Federer avenged his loss at the 2017 BNP Paribas Open
BNP Paribas Open
by beating him in the final.[217] While the rivalry is one-sided in Federer's favour, the two have contested some close matches. Wawrinka defeated Federer in straight sets during the 2015 French Open quarterfinals en route to winning his first French Open
French Open
title, although Federer then won a straight-sets victory in the 2015 US Open semifinals. Other close matches include the 2012 Shanghai Masters and the 2013 Indian Wells Masters, both of which Federer won in three sets, the 2014 Wimbledon quarterfinal, which Federer won in four sets, the 2014 ATP World Tour
2014 ATP World Tour
Final semifinal, which Federer won in three sets after saving four match points, and the 2017 Australian Open semifinal, which Federer won in five sets. Despite their on-court rivalry, they are friends off court,[218] and they have played doubles together on numerous occasions,[219] most notably when they won the doubles Olympic Gold at the 2008 Beijing
Beijing
Olympics and when winning the 2014 Davis Cup. Achievements Many players and analysts consider Federer the greatest tennis player of all time.[12][15][220][221][222] He has also been called the greatest athlete of his generation.[223][224] Tennis.com
Tennis.com
listed him as the greatest male player of the open era.[225] He dominated the game at his peak and has won more Grand Slam tournament titles (20) than any other men's singles player.[226][227] He is also the first men's singles player to have reached ten consecutive Grand Slam tournament finals and a total of 30 Grand Slam finals.[228] He has earned a men's doubles gold medal, and a men's single silver medal at the Olympics in 2008 and 2012, respectively.[229] He has spent the most amount of time in the Open Era at the top of the ATP Rankings (308 weeks). He also holds the record for the most titles (6) at the year-end tournament, where only the year-end eight highest-ranked players participate. Federer was ranked among the top eight players in the world continuously for 14 years and two weeks—from 14 October 2002 until 31 October 2016, when injuries forced him to skip much of the 2016 season.[230] Federer has won the ATPWorldTour.com Fans' Favourite Award a record 15 times consecutively (2003–17), won the ATP Player of the Year five times (2004–07, 2009), become ITF World Champion five times (2004–07, 2009), and won the Stefan Edberg
Stefan Edberg
Sportsmanship Award (voted for by the players) a record 13 times (2004–09, 2011–17),[231] both being awards indicative of respect and popularity. He also won the Arthur Ashe
Arthur Ashe
Humanitarian of the Year Award twice (2006, 2013), the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year five times (2005–08, 2018), and the Laureus World Comeback of the Year once, following his 2017 renaissance.[232] Federer is at times known as the Federer Express,[233] shortened to Fed Express or FedEx, and Swiss Maestro,[233] or just Maestro.[233][234][235][236] Federer is one of the founders, via his management company TEAM8, of the Laver Cup; the annual team tennis tournament which pits Europe against the rest of the world. He co-founded the tournament in honor of tennis legend Rod Laver
Rod Laver
and the inaugural edition was played in 2017. In 2018, Federer returned to the Australian Open
Australian Open
to defend his 2017 title and won his 20th Grand Slam tournament. This win placed him a total of four major titles ahead of long-time rival Rafael Nadal, who has won 16 Grand Slam tournaments. Cultural impact Federer helped to lead a revival in tennis known by many as the Golden Age. This led to increased interest in the sport, which in turn led to higher revenues for many venues across tennis. During this period rising revenues led to exploding prize money; when Federer first won the Australian Open
Australian Open
in 2004 he earned $985,000, compared to when he won in 2018 and the prize had increased to AUD 4 million.[237] Upon winning the 2009 French Open
French Open
and completing the career Grand Slam, Federer became the first individual male tennis player to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated
Sports Illustrated
since Andre Agassi

as: "In an era of specialists, you're either a clay court specialist, a grass court specialist, or a hard court specialist... or you're Roger Federer."[240]

Federer serving

An elite athlete, Federer is an all-court, all-around player known for his speed, fluid style of play, and exceptional shot making. Federer mainly plays from the baseline but is also comfortable at the net, being one of the best volleyers in the game.[241] He has a powerful, accurate smash and very effectively performs rare elements playing tennis, such as backhand smash and skyhook, half-volley, jump smash (slam dunk) and SABR (Sneak Attack By Roger, a half-volley attack on an opponent's second serve). David Foster Wallace
David Foster Wallace
compared the brute force of Federer's forehand motion with that of "a great liquid whip",[242] while John McEnroe
John McEnroe
has referred to Federer's forehand as "the greatest shot in our sport."[243] Federer is also known for his efficient movement around the court and excellent footwork, which enables him to run around shots directed to his backhand and instead hit a powerful inside-out or inside-in forehand, one of his best shots. Federer plays with a single-handed backhand, which gives him great variety. He employs the slice, occasionally using it to lure his opponent to the net and deliver a passing shot. Federer can also fire topspin winners and possesses a 'flick' backhand with which he can generate pace with his wrist; this is usually used to pass the opponent at the net.[242] His serve is difficult to read because he always uses a similar ball toss, regardless of what type of serve he is going to hit and where he aims to hit it, and turns his back to his opponents during his motion. He is often able to produce big serves on key points during a match. His first serve is typically around 200 km/h (125 mph);[244][245][246] however, he is capable of serving at 220 km/h (137 mph).[244][245] Federer is also accomplished at serve and volleying,[247] and employed this tactic frequently in his early career.[248][249] Later in his career, Federer added the drop shot to his arsenal and can perform a well-disguised one off both wings. He sometimes uses a between-the-legs shot, which is colloquially referred to as a "tweener" or "hotdog". His most notable use of the tweener was in the semifinals of the 2009 US Open against Novak Djokovic, bringing him triple match point.[250] Federer is one of the top players who employ successfully the "squash shot", when he gets pushed deep and wide on his forehand wing. Since Stefan Edberg
Stefan Edberg
joined his coaching team at the start of the 2014 season, Federer has played a more offensive game, attacking the net more often, and improved his volley shots.[251][252] In the lead-up to the 2015 US Open, Federer successfully added a new unique shot to his arsenal called SABR (Sneak Attack by Roger), in which he charges forward to receive the second serve and hits a return on the service line. The SABR is a unique shot that Federer owns, in the way that he manages to add enough power and placement into the shot, which makes it very difficult, or close to impossible for the opponent to reach it.[253] With the switch to a bigger 97 inch racket from 90 inches, Federer has gained easy power while relinquishing some control on his shots. The bigger racket has enabled easier serving and better defense on both wings with fewer shanks. However this has diminished his forehand, slice backhand and dropshot.[citation needed] Since his comeback in 2017, Federer is noted for his improved backhand both down the line and cross court which was cited as the reason for his win against Nadal in the 2017 Australian Open
Australian Open
Final and Indian Wells 4th round. Federer is also noted for his cool demeanour and emotional control on the court. In contrast to his early career, most of his professional game has been characterised by lack of outbursts or emotional frustration at errors, which gives him an advantage over less controlled opponents.[254][255] Federer declared:

I don't get the anxiety during a match so much anymore. You know, to throw racquets, to toss balls out of the court, scream and stuff. I almost laugh [on the inside] about it a little bit today when an opponent does it. But that's something for me that's not a problem any more.[256]

Equipment and apparel Equipment Federer plays with the Wilson Prostaff RF97 Autograph, a 97 square inch tennis racquet with 21.5 mm beam, 366 g weight, 340 swing weight and 16x19 string pattern (all strung with overgrip). Since the 1998 Wimbledon Junior Championships Federer has played with a Pro Staff 6.0 85 racquet. He switched to a bigger custom-built 90 tennis racquet in 2003,[257] which is characterised by its smaller hitting area of 90 square inches, heavy strung weight of 364 grams, and thin beam of 17.5 millimetres.[258] His grip size was 4 3/8 inches (sometimes referred to as L3).[259] Federer strung his racquets at 21.5 kg mains/20 kg crosses pre-stretched 20 percent, using Wilson Natural Gut 16 gauge for his main strings and Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Rough 16L gauge (polyester) for his cross strings.[259] When asked about string tensions, Federer stated "this depends on how warm the days are and with what kind of balls I play and against who I play. So you can see – it depends on several factors and not just the surface; the feeling I have is most important."[260] As of November 2017, Federer's preferred tension is 26.5 kg mains/25 kg crosses.[261] Apparel Federer has a contract with Nike footwear and apparel.[262] For the 2006 championships at Wimbledon, Nike designed a jacket emblazoned with a crest of three tennis racquets, symbolising the three Wimbledon Championships he had previously won, and which was updated the next year with four racquets after he won the Championship in 2006.[263] At Wimbledon 2008, and again in 2009, Nike continued this trend by making him a personalised cardigan that also had his own logo, an R and an F joined together.[264][265] Endorsements Federer is one of the highest-earning athletes in the world. He is listed at No. 1 on the Forbes "World's Highest Paid Athletes" list.[266] As of 2013[update], he remains the top earner in tennis with ten endorsement deals. He makes 40 to 50 million euros a year from prize money and endorsements from Nike and the Swiss companies Nationale Suisse, Credit Suisse, Rolex, Lindt, Sunrise, and Jura Elektroapparate.[267] In 2010, his endorsement by Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-Benz
China was extended into a global partnership deal.[268] His other sponsors include Gillette, Wilson, and Moët & Chandon.[266][269][270] Previously, he was an ambassador for NetJets, Emmi AG,[271] and Maurice Lacroix.[272] Career statistics Main article: Roger Federer
