Roger Federer is known for his tennis performance all over the world. Federes’s style of play can be easily summarized by the Jimmy Connors statement: “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”.
Federer reached all 4 Major finals (in a year) three times, reached all 4 major semi-finals (in a year) 5 times and reached all 4 major quarter-finals (in a year) 9 times. No other player has achieved this feat and this itself shows how great Federer is.
