      The greatest _pure_ *player* and *shotmaker* to play this wonderful sport. He may not end up as its most successful winner (though he'll be right up there), but he did something much greater than just winning - he singly-handedly _elevated_ the sport by creating and revealing a new aesthetics for it. To put it simply - tennis incarnated itself in the Fed.

      1. John uyakonwu

        You've said it all. He's a god of tennis 🔥🙌🙌🔥

      2. Joe Marshall

        @Mike Moggerson There's more to it than that. Fed has a winning record against Rafa on grass and on hard courts. But Rafa killed him on clay. The reason they met so much more often on clay than you would expect (the clay season is only about 18% of the year, but 40% of their matches were played there) is because Rafa was getting knocked out in the earlier rounds of hard court tournaments when he was young, while Fed almost always made it to the finals on clay. That needs to be taken into account. Novak also met Rafa on clay much more often that one would suppose because Novak made it to the clay finals much more often that Rafa made it to the hard court finals. Fed had a comfortable lead in teh h2h against Novak until Fed was in his early 30s, passing his prime. It's after that that Novak caught up. Fed dominated the sport like no one else for five years before the other three (including Murray) came into their own. Look at his win-loss records during those years, and the h2h records between them and Roger. It was amazing domination. Roger had the best "peak" ever, if you consider the peak 3-5 years. But Novak has had the best career, and the weeks at number one prove it. Roger still has more tournament wins and total match wins than the others, and a better overall slam performance than Rafa, who lost in the early rounds more often and got to fewer finals and semis than the other two. Comparing them to Brady or Jordan doesn't work for me. Those are team sports,a nd different from tennis. There is an argument for all three to be considered the GOAT. I give it to Novak at present, but it's just semantics, really.

      3. Julie Kim

        I wish I had appreciated him more.

      4. boz

        @Mike Moggerson djoko can't serve/volley. He'd have adapted but I can't see him beating pistol pete. We know fed can, because he did

      5. Mike Moggerson

        @Joe Marshall I agree that at the end of the day, one or two more slams when they all have 20+ means little. However, if Federer was really the goat, he wouldn’t have struggled like he did against Novak and Rafa. You cannot make any excuses for that. The best of the best overcome any adversity and that’s why they’re GOATs. Michael Jordan still dominated in his late 30s. Tom Brady won a Super Bowl at 44 years old. All I hear from Fed fans is EXCUSES when it comes to him getting beat by Novak/Rafa. Federer is comparable to those two, but unfortunately, the head to head statistics and overall advanced stats suggest Fed is the weakest because he had the weakest competition to win most of his titles (of the 3).

    2. Hot Takes

      There has never been a player with the artistry and skill of this man. I can watch his highlights any day and time.

      1. kyo azakura

        his like efren bata reyes in billiards. roger is magician in tennis

      2. boz

        @Ben Howlett the thing is, u see djoko fans on fed highlight vids, gassing up the place. i said to one of them: "if you hate fed so much why are you here? why dont u go to a djoko fan channel?". He said: "there are no djoker fan channels". Sad but true.

      3. Ben Howlett

        Exactly! Does anyone actual watch nadal or Djokovic highlights? No player yet has the draw like roger! Maybe young alcaraz

      4. Stefan Hammel

        Exactly the same with MJ

    3. R C

      Happy birthday, Roger. To me, the GOAT. The fact that he still has passion to play at this age says everything. An inspiration to so many people, myself included.

      1. Carlos

        If "greatest" in GOAT refers to legacy, impact on the sport, being the reason why many players decided to turn pros and the reason they fell in love with the sport (the way I interpret greatness) Federer is without discussion the GOAT of tennis. Objectively you could argue that he was not the best and definitely not the most successful or efficient player, but man his greatness is like no other

      2. Dimitrije Stanković

        @Dragan Milosevic Isto,bravo brate.

      3. CateDoge


      4. marcyfan

        how about roger federer as the next james bond?

      5. ALES KATIČ

        @za21 Pa isti kao Jordan u košarci. Šta se bre ložite kao da su Noletove pobjede vaše osobne pobjede.

    4. Samer

      Tennis isn’t the same without him. You feel something is missing out there.

      1. Cyril Culton

        My sentiment exactly. No one can compare to his artistry & shot making on a tennis court. R F will always be the GOAT IMO. A humble champion.

      2. Maria Luisa Cortes

        Si Roger tengo 83 años y te sigo desde niño porq vi tu talento innato ya q soy adicta al tenis por una tía q fue campeona en Chile y pertenecieron al Stade Francais de Santiago de Chile. Yo no pude ser tenista por problema a la vista y fui bailarina clásica. Espero q tu rodilla mejore para la Copa Laver ya q es un espectáculo muy hermoso y se recuerda a un gran tenista.Muchos cariños a tu familia desde este hermoso país al fin del mundo con grandes tenistas!!!!

      3. Canute

        I dunno that 2019 final loss was very enjoyable.

      4. DNAngel

        @Johnny713 Tran06 Agreed!

      5. Johnny713 Tran06

        Federer was the only player I enjoyed watching the entire 4 hour matches.

    5. Boney Johns

      Of the Big 3, currently most records are against Federer, but he seems to enjoy the game much more than others. He is willing to play high risk shots, take ball on half volley or even innovate new shots. Casual brilliance is something you can associate with Federer unlike Rafa or Novak. Kyrgios is another player that comes to mind when thinking of casual brilliance. Federer game style is like Messi's. Lots of talent and less physical. Whereas, Novak or Rafa style is like Ronaldo's, where the game is a lot more physical. Really miss seeing him play.

      1. Nadine Markus

        @BonSomAnnJen Oh sorry, I was looking at the wrong post. As for Alcaraz, he does seem to play with more effort than Federer, but then again, everyone seems to play with more effort than Federer. We'll see how successful Alcaraz ultimately is, but it's hard to imagine him not winning at least 10 grand slams.

      2. BonSomAnnJen

        @Nadine Markus I was replying to your comment about the casual brilliance of Carlos Alcaraz. Not sure why you are talking about Nadal.

      3. Nadine Markus

        @Boney Johns Considering his foot has been disintegrating this whole time, that's even more impressive. Moreover, winning is what counts, as long as you play fair, which Nadal certainly does. Whether it looks smooth and effortless doesn't matter. At the end of the day, Nadal has won 22 grand slam titles, the most of anyone in the history of tennis. This is what matters.

      4. Boney Johns

        @Nadine Markus I disagree, because to me it feels like he puts lots of effort into his play. Doesn't look casual/smooth/effortless.

      5. Tony Miller


    6. Ballistischer Falke

      Happy birthday Roger, one of the best players to ever grace the sport, great guy, pretty composed, stylish playing still without compromising precision, absolutely clinical. He is one of the reasons I started watching tennis, just like many others. Also the respect he has for his rivals and the spectacular games he plays against them makes him an admirable sportsman. People might argue about who is the GOAT in tennis, but the bottom line is very few get to this level.

      1. Dorothy Smith

        ​@Mike Moggerson You are so right. Federer and NADAL. It's a pity injuries halted their success. Bravo Boys we will always love you and you will be forever remembered. Thank you 😊👋😊🤗❤️❤️🙏🙏

      2. The cire

        @MKA Nadal leads h2h on federer 24-16, and djokovic leads 27-23. 2006-2014 Djokovic was 5-9 against Federer 2006-2009, and that wasn't even his prime. The truth is with everyone's primes being at different times it's simply just too hard to say who's the greatest of all time.

      3. Mike Moggerson

        @MKA as I said in many other comments, it’s hilarious how Federer fans are finding new ways to cope. I’m sure you will deny it, but his fans were constantly saying how he’s the best BECAUSE of his records. Now since he’s surpassed by two players, suddenly achievements and records are irrelevant 🤣🤣

      4. MKA

        Actually, _nobody_ else in tennis history has got to Federer's level. Some of them have been more successful or efficient perhaps, but Fed is the *only* player in the history of _any_ individual sport to *simultaneously* be that sport's aesthetic touchstone, its greatest shotmaker, and its most prolific winner. (This was during the 2003-2009 period.) Of course, he eventually stopped being the most successful winner, but he remained its greatest shotmaker and will forever remain the sport's aesthetic gold standard.

      5. The cire

        @Dragan Milosevic a little debatable

    7. Ferguson

      No one can make tennis look this easy, it´s art.

    8. Markus Bender

      No one will ever be like him. The Hero, the Legend, the one and only, simply the GOAT. Happy Birthday Roger

      1. crazyBanana

        @Ben french open is still a major right? To measure skill of course numbers count. H2h djoker wins both roger and nadal. Slams nadal leads. Olympics gold maybe counts? Nadal leads. No of weeks in no1 djoker leads. Roger third in goat debate. Gn

      2. Ben

        @crazyBanana A ridiculous way of measuring skill. In Nadal's case, how many of those were the French Open, the only surface on which he can effectively oppose Djokovic and Federer when they're playing their best?

      3. Bruno fernandez

        @Günther F Exactly.He was in the GOAT debate for his success,not playstyle.The one who accomplishes the most becomes the Greatest which federer isn't.

      4. Günther F

        @Bruno fernandez well he is obviously pretty successful too, this is just the distinguishment that puts him on top for me.

      5. crazyBanana

        @Günther F roger is the most elegant most popular player make everything looks effortless, but goat? Not so sure

    9. sarang gujarathi

      The greatest there was, the greatest there is and the greatest there will be! Happy 41 RF! ❤️

      1. Lap Nguyen

        @Joseph D T Weak era? He plays in an era where there are two players that won more slams than Sampras. No one during Sampras' era even won 9 slams, and despite that, Sampras only won 14 slams. Also, Sampras didn't achieve a career grand slam since he didn't win the French Open.

      2. Menkaura

        @Jonathan Stirling The stats they all want people to ignore. ty for this.

      3. Ben

        @Joseph D T Don't be ridiculous. Federer is not a "weak era" player. From 2005 onwards, he continuously opposed Nadal in Slams.

      4. Mike Moggerson

        @Choo Choo MotherTrucker mental toughness is an actual rating, determined by how good a player is in clutch situations. Look it up. Nole best ever by far. Fed not top 5.

      5. Veli-Pekka

        @Dragan Milosevic I'm from switzerland and i have to admit that rafa and novak are both long way ahead of roger... :-(

    10. PAWS & HANDS

      Roger literally HITS EVERY SHOT IMAGINABLE! Then he goes on to invent nee ones.

    11. Ralph Wyatt

      He uses his racquet like a an artist uses his paint brush, covering the canvas of the court with masterpiece strokes. A real treasure in the sporting world.

    12. ToxicPickles

      Im a huge Novak fan but this guy was playing tennis like its the easiest sport in the world, just unbelivable

    13. Santiago Chaparro

      Watching this gives me mixed emotions. It's just a reminder of how great Roger is, and the good moments he made me live. But it just makes me miss him even more, and the fact that he's 41 makes his retirement look close. Just hope the GOAT can have one last dance.

      1. laila ahmed

        Today is his last match

    14. dasglasperlenspiel10

      There are several good compilations of Roger's most magical moments. This may well be the best of them. Not having seen him work these miracles for a couple of years now, this brings back the excitement of his artistry for all to see. No one like him, really, not even close.

    15. Olly Paton

      A sporting ICON, the one and only, Roger Federer 🪄

    16. 男のロマンChannel

      I'm waiting for Federer to come back so badly I'd trade him for a body, and I'm hoping for a comeback like he had in 2017!

      1. sun dromos

        You got your answer this week.

      2. Mr Sir

        @Ben Johnston hope to be one

      3. Ben Johnston

        @Mr Sir you a doctor?

      4. Mr Sir

        Unfortunately he’s just getting too old, playing at that level when he’s 41 would be very dangerous for his health

    17. Divinity Mode

      The reason why Federer is the greatest is his tennis. Incredible though they are, Novak is essentially a defensive player and Rafa is essentially a boxer with a tennis racket. Federer wasn’t just an artist he played ruthless offence. He was a killer with silk gloves. There’s a reason why most players and fans say he was the greatest. It’s because he was.

      1. DNAngel

        @codegeek1001 Because Novak fans always believe that Federer is in his prime! XD

      2. codegeek1001

        @Angerisdiscipline Prime Federer would mostly beat Prime Djokovic. Until 2013/2014, Federer was ahead in their head to head. Djoker started beating him more consistently after late 2014/early 2015. Plus, I wouldn't call Djoker the Goat since last 10 of his wins came in last 4-5 years which is awesome but we can call it the "weak era" since the best competition he had was an aging federer and a much weaker nadal (other than clay). So if 2003-2007 was the weak era for Fed (where he was fighting aging Agassi and single GS winners) , why can't we call say 2015-2022 the weak era as well ?

      3. Bruno fernandez

        @MKA The way one plays makes him your favourite.The one who accomplishes the most becomes the greatest which federer isnt.Big difference.

      4. Divinity Mode

        @MKA Great reply. Thanks. Honestly, I find discussions (even my own) about which is the greatest of the Big Three to be a bit ridiculous. They’re all such absolute titans. But for me Federer just plays the game how the gods want it to played. I’m more interested in watching the next gens now. Going to be a fascinating few years. Alcaraz is astonishing. And Sinner is his perfect foil and rival, stylistically and technically. Great times ahead :)

      5. MKA

        Too true. The description of Rafa is one of the better ones I've seen...though his racquet skills and talent are not too far behind the Fed. (The Djoker is quite a long way back.) The thing people don't often realize about the Fed is: between 2003-2009, he was _simultaneously_ his sport's aesthetic touchstone, greatest shotmaker, and most prolific winner. No other player in _any_ individual sport has ever done this before. Outside of those years - he still remained its greatest and most inventive _elite_ shotmaker and aesthetic gold standard.

    18. Kurt Wild

      I love Tennis, saw many players playing this beautiful sport..but Roger, my god..seeing him playing it's so unique..he looks like a butterfly floating on the field...what a class,style,technique...absolutely the master class of this sport!

    19. Paperbagman555

      I miss Roger. He is the most effortless, watchable player of all time.

    20. ANACAR-2

      Bon anniversaire Roger! Merci beaucoup pour tout ce que tu as apporté à notre sport. A toujours dans nos cœurs. ❤❤❤

    21. Ganesh V

      Tennis legend, the" Greatest of all time" , no tennis player can play or even come close to the level of tennis that Roger federer can display

      1. sun dromos

        @Bruno fernandez Your bar is low.

      2. Deafsiamang

        @Bruno fernandez but your mother is his first's

      3. Bruno fernandez

        That's why he is 3rd in Grandslam count lol

      4. Dragan Milosevic

        Federer is the GOAT and I even say this as a Serbian!!

    22. Minister Avilez

      GOAT by a long way. Yes Nadal and Djokovic are legends. Great competitors with an unrivaled tenacity for the game, but show me a highlight reel from any of those two legends compared to this one. I love all three players in their own right, but if we’re speaking of pure tennis, there’s only one man to name: Ernests Gulbis. 😉

      1. Roger Federer

        How are you my fan ? Where you from

      2. blucat4

        1 point. That's all .. 😉

    23. David Kunutsor

      Watching this on Sept 15 2022, the day Federer announced his retirement, makes me so emotional. My GOAT without a doubt! Professional tennis would never be the same without him but I hope to see younger generations influenced by him, continue to make waves in the game just as he did.

    24. Fer Blues

      Technically speaking, I consider him to be the best of all times. Happy Birthday to an amazing tennis player.

    25. Lelliot

      The most talented player. Hands down.

    26. uutuu

      I'm going to bawl my eyes out when this man retires 😭 Hoping for one more magical run 🪄🏆🪄

      1. Michael Wirth

        You are crying now right?

      2. tennnis

        @Shawn Jaffar yeah, I hoped he was coming back to school some players

      3. Shawn Jaffar

        this is the worst day ever.

      4. Aravind R

        Are you fine ? 😢

      5. uutuu

        @tennnis 😂

    27. Yanini Rivera

      Para mí es el jugador más completo de todos los tiempos. Es increíble su sagacidad, sus movimientos, su técnica, la facilidad con que gana, su creatividad. Extraordinario!!! Federer, el más grande de todos los tiempos!!!

    28. Fieldofdreams

      The best player of all time. Federer at his best , would destroy Djokovic

      1. codegeek1001

        I also believe that Federer is a better player than Djokovic. It is just that once he started going towards mid 30s, he played Djoker a lot more and Djoker got the better of him in close matches. Until 2013, Federer was ahead in their head to head. Yes djoker beat him in 2008 AO which was big but in general, Prime Fed would be much better than Prime Djokovic (in match up). I doubt a 2011 Djokovic would beat a 2005/2006 Federer. Only exception is Nadal on Clay. Fed just has the most versatile and entertaining game. No disrespect to Djoker and Nadal though. They are legends for sure.

    29. Robert Laframboise

      Happy birthday Mr. Federer - you will always be my favourite tennis player - your talent, your finesse, your graceful movements make of you the finest, the best and simply put the greatest of all times (GOAT). And to top all that, the love from everyone around the world that have had the pleasure of watching you play. Hopefully we will again. Take care and hopefully we will see you at the US OPEN.

      1. Dragan Milosevic

        Federer is the GOAT and I even say this as a Serbian!!

    30. GNS Basil

      Happy birthday Roger! And thank you for entertaining us with your graceful and unique style of play. You will always be my favorite player even when you retire.

    31. Arnatri

      There might be players with much better stats than him, but no one, absolutely no one can match his finesse!

    32. Aakarshit Srivastava

      Happy 41st Birthday to Roger Federer who made Tennis look Beautiful with his Elegance on the Court

    33. Creative Guana

      Federer is an artist, an inspiration, and a legend.

    34. dileep raghunath

      The elegance and ease with which he plays aww!! Arrogantly stylish yet so composed. Undoubtedly in his own element “GOAT” “ROGER THE IRREPLACEABLE”

    35. Dan Zhou

      You can really tell where Kyrgios got so much of his shotmaking from. The Legend himself.

    36. H

      The man the myth the legend the icon and the greatest sportsman in history

    37. akdongirl

      There’s truly something so special about Roger… I’m someone who has never had any interest in tennis or any sport in general and yet by chance I stumbled on a video with Roger playing and I was transfixed?! I knew nothing about the game or its rules or how it should or shouldn’t be played but I just found Roger’s play style so wonderfully aesthetic and fun to watch?! In the little that I‘ve managed to learn about tennis, still no other player has made me feel this interested or fascinated with the sport! He’s in a league of his own when it comes to his style and charisma both on and off court - as he’s such a charming and cute person! Anyway, I hope he has a fabulous birthday, to still be playing and this integral to a sport at 41, it’s nothing short of incredible and inspiring! ❤️

      His shocking 2017 comeback was 5 years ago… holy shit

      1. MKA

        @tennnis Well, one can dream. 🙂 The question is: how's the knee doing? We all know those hand-skills remain, but can he move around the court on auto pilot or will his knee constantly make him second guess himself? After all, few human knees in history have undergone the kind of strain the Fed's has.

      2. tennnis

        Fed 3.0.

      Happy Birthday to the Greatest Of All Time! 🎂🔥🎁

      1. Jonathan Stirling

        @Average Jojo Fan stats don’t mean anything? Funny how they did when Roger had them all. If they didn’t mean anything, they wouldn’t keep stats.

      2. Average Jojo Fan

        @Jonathan Stirling having the most records does not equal being the best. Michael Jordan has some records but not all of them. Does that mean he is the best? Yes because of his play style atheletism. Same here applies for Federer. Stats don’t mean shit when comparing who’s the goat.

      3. Dragan Milosevic

        @Jonathan Stirling you don’t live in Switzerland LOL. Fed is the GOAT, get over it already!

        @Jonathan Stirling ​ Federer is the GOAT and I even say this as a Serbian!!

    43. YugiBoy-UK

      I've had the pleasure of being able to watch this man many places around the globe. No player in history knows how to captivate an audience and acquire a huge tennis fanbase quite like RF. I'll miss him so much when the time comes. But not just yet!

    44. Equipe Rocão

      This appeared after his retirement announcement. Damn, we may not ever see a player with this kind of magic ever again.

    45. Alexandre Sa

      Happy birthday Roger. For me the best tennis player ever. Great behaviour on and off court

    46. BrotherTree1

      Happy Birthday, you outrageously insane legend of the game.

    47. Rafa Messi

      One of the most beautiful moments and heartbreaking moments both came from Rogers backhands

    48. Naam Amar Kishore Kumar

      Good bye Roger. Thank you for giving us the good times and the bad times. You are the best I’ve seen and you showed my son and I how tennis should be played, with style and elegance. Through the Borg, McEnroe, Connors, Lendl, Sampras, and Agassi days, I’ve seen it all. You are the GOAT by far

    49. feri7mble

      It's also funny to compare the reaction of opponents to shots like these. Funny faces and smiles from the likes of Djokovic and Roddick and total poker face from Agassi.

    50. Emmanuel Abenu

      Watching Roger is inspiring and exciting,a great icon

    51. Joan Holland

      I love watching him play! He’s amazing and his dedication hard work is an inspiration to me! Thank you for that Roger 😊Have a Wonderful rest of your Life ❤

    52. Daniel B

      The most genius tennis player ever.

    53. 黃日恆

      Happy bday Roger!!! Always genius, always amazing, always the Mastero.

    54. Sirnius Kullu

      Happy birthday to the GOAT . Hard work has been a lesson to everyone.

    55. Sons Of The Phoenix

      Look at Federer, man... So, inspirational 🙌

    56. Tarako

      We can remember which shot just by looking at the court, the wear and the opponent. Roger is great.

    57. BItter Truth

      Gotta love Fed in beast mode. Watch the footage from hard courts and Wimbledon until 2008, also the 2015 Dubai final when Fed schooled Djokovic. Everyone will talk about how Fed won his titles during the "weak era", and conveniently ignore the fact that no one would've come close to his records if they hadn't slowed the courts down so clay court players like Nadal could catch up (after Fed neared/touched his 40s and barely played, of course).

    58. Kee U

      "I think Federer, out of the other three guys, Federer can make you feel really bad, like he makes you want to leave the court. He can make things seem really quick and that the court's really small." Nadal and Djokovic, they allow you to play a little bit from the back and if you're not playing great, then you struggle," Kyrgios said.

        @Bruno fernandez you make us Novak fans look like losers..

      🎶 Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you Mister Federer... 🎶 And thank you for your game play absolutely amazing, beautiful and spectacular !! Magic Roger Federer forever !

    60. Lucas Ericson

      Though he may not go down as the game’s most decorated player, I think many already see him as the greatest to ever play. Throughout the entirety of his career, he has been excellence personified. The grace he carried himself with on the court and the elegance he made his shots with will never be forgotten.

    61. Ivan Lau

      Great compilation - this is poetry in motion, love the top 3 shots in particular :)

      1. Roger Federer

        Really appreciate your comment and am about to retire just saying great to my fan

    62. Accro

      He was just something else.. We won't see anything like this in many many years to come, thanks Roger.

    63. David Malebranche

      Others may be slightly more “accomplished,” but Fed is the GOAT.

    64. Kandelise Kandle

      If there was anyone who made tennis look like an art form it was Roger Federer. Nothing more to add.

    65. somesh narayan

      On a Roger binge since the news broke about his retirement. He might not be the greatest when it comes to slam wins but no one can deny at his peak he is and will always be the best player to ever play and watch. His talent skill and creativity in shotmaking is just beyond what anyone can do.

    66. PiotrekTiger

      Unmatched style😍

    67. Positron81

      I read that Roger once said that it's possible to play perfect tennis. When I watch points like these, especially the shots leading to extraordinary moments of inspiration, like a crazy half volley or drop shot, I imagine he's thinking "this is what I tennis played perfectly would look like". The man truly is an artist, even if statistics are what people pay attention to.

    68. tvtotalforever

      His improvisation skills and quick hands are unmatched

    69. streetspirit 95

      What a great video but also now sad to watch as we wont be able to see anymore of this genius. Every Federer match wether he won or lost, there was always at least one shot of jaw dropping wizardry.

    70. Anshuman Mohanty

      He is not famous because of tennis Tennis is famous because of him Happy birthday The real 🐐

    71. Paul ES

      I read that Federer went to Diagon Alley and bought a magic wand which he'd insert in the handle of his racquet unbeknownst to his opponents. That's why his shots are magic.

    72. Moorish Brooklyn

      Roger Federer's School Of Tennis Wizardry.

    73. ClueSign

      What I love about watching these highlights are the dozens of almost forgotten players who Roger dispatched in the 90s, 00s, 10s, and 20s.

    74. Faizal Amir Bashiira

      If you want to find a definition of artistry in this wonderful sport You'll find it within him

    75. Dem0nGa_ming

      Sheeesh Federer is just a magician!:O watching the shots over and over again still amazes me.He is such an inspiration to many of us.Happy B'day CHAMP!

    77. Alex Fed

      Happy Birthday, Roger! I wish that video included one-handed backhand lob volley against Youszhny in Dubai.

    78. Denny PFA

      You may never see anything like it anymore from a great and most beautiful tennis Shotmaker like Roger, He really is the Greatest

    79. Radim Tichý

      #39 is the most insane thing in tennis I've ever seen. Still a mystery how he could generate enough energy for a lob with that motion.

    80. InvictuZ

      0:29 class act Djokovic always smiling at greatness.

    81. Syed Shahrukh Raza

      The only player who makes tennis look like art. Yes, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray and some of the next-gen are all supremely talented and possess every shot in the book. But no one makes it look effortless. Except Roger.

    82. Alex Salgado

      que fortuna haber visto a Roger jugar. Ojalá alguien se acerque algún día a su perfección.

    83. NUFC Sam

      That shot against Agassi still lives in my memory. I was lucky enough to be there and see it live. One of the best shots ever!

      1. Roger Federer

      The most stylish great player of all time. Massive respect to Mr. Federer.

    85. Julia Rego

      I could watch him play all day. Simply the best. Love you Fedex

    86. Toun

      Happy Birthday to the Master of tennis, a big inspiration for me, happy birthday Roger!

    87. Susmito Rittik

      It's so sad that we won't get to see a match between peak Federer -- the greatest from the previous generation -- and Alcaraz -- the next step in the evolution of men's tennis. That would've been an epic generations match.

    88. CRiSTiAN

      Nadal and Djokovic may have more titles but they will never have Roger's talent. The genius, the Goat, the best!

    89. Ford 69BOSS429

      His shot making was pure magic in a time of baseline bashers like Murray, Andersen, Berdych, Djokovic, etc. So much fun to watch.

    90. ic8x67eb

      I love Federer for the same reason I love Messi. It's the magic in their performance that looks as effortless as a dance

      Sometimes i get why federed don't want to play anymore, when reaching this level of clinical perfection it's hard to imagine how he could bring something else to the sport
