“In the modern game, you’re a clay court specialist, a grass court specialist
or a hard court specialist ... or you’re Roger Federer.”
—Jimmy Connors to the BBC, 2006


“I’d like to be in his shoes for one day to know what it feels like to play
that way.”
—Mats Wilander to the Associated Press, 2004


“I’ve probably run out of adjectives to describe him on the court to talk about
his excellence. He’s just unbelievable.”
—James Blake, 2006


“He’s a real person. He’s not an enigma. Off the court he’s not trying to be
somebody. If you met him at McDonald’s and you didn’t know who he was,
you would have no idea that he’s one of the best athletes in the world.”
—Andy Roddick, 2005


"Roger can produce tennis shots that should be
declared illegal.”
—Tracy Austin, 2004


“The best way to beat Roger Federer would be to hit him over the head with a racquet."
—Rod Laver, 2007



“Well, I think when I look at Roger, I mean, I’m a fan. I’m a fan of how he
plays, what he’s about… he’s a class guy on and off the court. He’s fun to
watch. Just his athletic ability, what he’s able to do on the run. I think he can
and will break every tennis record out there.”
—Pete Sampras, 2006



“Roger is a complete player. What he has—and it’s not luck—is the ability
to change his game slightly as to what his opponent’s doing to him…He’s
not known as a great aggressive player, but he’s so good on the defense and
so good at the return of serve that he’s forcing the other player, mentally, to
get a little bit of scaredness. ‘I’ve got to serve a little better or Roger’s going
to knock it by me. ... I’ve got to make a better approach shot or he’s going
to pass me.’ He’s getting errors because of the threat of his skills. That’s why
he’s the champ.”
—Jack Kramer to the Associated Press, 2004



“Roger is like a good red wine, he’s getting better with age”
—Tony Roche to The Age, 2007



“I really consider myself a top five player in the world, which it doesn’t mean
that I am close to Roger.”
—Ivan Ljubicic, 2006



“You bring up tennis in this day and age and a lot of people roll their eyes,
and they’re not interested. But listen: if you’re not paying attention to this
guy, if you appreciate sports, you have to take a moment to appreciate this
guy.”...
—Mike Greenberg of ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike in the Morning, 2006

Just like Sachin Tendulkar is God of cricket,Federer is God tennis.but comparatively Roger is the best.i like him as the most decent person too.
