Few players have dominated their sport like Roger Federer, considered by many to be the greatest tennis player of all time. The Swiss player’s career includes a record 297 weeks with a Number 1 ranking, 17 Grand Slam singles titles and 8 Wimbledon finals. In an era of tennis dominated by speed and power, Federer’s all court game has stood apart for its elegance and fluidity. Featuring great sports journalism from The New York Times, this e-single follows Federer’s career from his breakthrough Grand Slam victories through his dominant years and late career, in which he has been joined at the top of the sport by his chief rivals, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
