Roger Federer's 5 Most Unbreakable Records Federer has regained his spot at the top of the world rankings and now has the all-time record for most weeks at the top. No one knows how many more weeks he will spend there before finally passing on the reins for good. Those reins may go to Nadal, Djokovic or even Andy Murray, who made an impressive showing However, some of the records Roger is leaving behind will never be broken by any of his successors. Five such records in particular are unlike anything else accomplished in the sport of tennis It is a testament to Federer's consistency and longevity that his all-time record of 17 Grand Slam wins is fifth on this list. His Grand Slam wins record is often viewed as the most important to the game and the one that sets him apart as the greatest of all time. While this is true, it is not his most dominant record. Pete Sampras got 14 Slams in his career and Rafael Nadal has 11. Novak Djokovic might get into double digits as well. Roger's 58 percent Grand Slam-winn ...

Wake up Federer fans,Federer is not that humble as you guys say...I like and respect Federer,but he ain't that humble.Rafa is more humble than him :) Here are some of Federer's quotes: "I came so close [to breaking Sampras' record] and I could have chased it if I had wanted to. I didn't choose to.'' This is why we play the game. Federer didn't break Pete's No. 1 record because he didn't want to. Not because Rafael Nadal took it away from him or Novak Djokovic denied him. Nope, Roger chose not to pursue the record, just as I choose not to be a billionaire. "It would be great having [Pete Sampras' record for most weeks at No. 1] but my life is very much OK without it, too. Pete is a good friend and was an amazing champion for our game. I don't need to break every record he has." A perfect starting point. Federer is gracious (talking about how amazing Pete was) and honest (he wants the record but is cool if he doesn't). And then he makes sure to let you know that he's broken most of Sampras' records already. ...
A versatile player, Novak Djokovic has won six Grand Slam titles, including three in a superlative 2011 season that saw him capture 10 tournament titles overall, post an ATP-best 70-6 record and seize the No. 1 ranking. In 2012, The world No. 1 added to his legacy in fighting back from a 2-4 fifth-set deficit to defeat Rafal Nadal, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 7-5, and capture his third Australian Open championship in the longest Grand Slam final in history — a five hour, 53-minute epic. It was Djokovic's seventh straight win over Nadal and came after his five-set triumph over Andy Murray in the semifinals, marking the first time he had won back-to-back five-set matches. Djokovic became the fifth man in the Open Era to win three straight majors, joining Nadal, Roger Federer, Pete Sampras and Rod Laver.  The top-seeded Serbian beat Andy Murray, 6-1, 7-6, to collect his third career Miami title without surrendering a set. It was Djokovic's 30th career title, including his 11th Masters crown, tying him with Pe ...
Seven years ago, a precocious 20 year old named Rafael Nadal took to Rod Laver Arena to face an emerging star in Stanislas Wawrinka, in the third round of the 2007 Australian Open. In what would be the first of 12 encounters between the Spaniard and the Swiss, Nadal has dominated the FedEx ATP Head2Head, having yet to relinquish a set. Wawrinka, however, has made inroads in recent meetings, particularly on hard courts, and will be looking to play spoiler when they battle for the 2014 crown in Melbourne on Sunday. This will undoubtedly be Wawrinka’s greatest challenge, but the Swiss is up to the test and is no stranger to pulling off the big upset on the big stage, less than a week removed from stunning three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic in a pulsating quarter-final affair. “I’m at the top of my career,” Wawrinka said. “Already last year I had the feeling that I was playing better, but I was dealing better with the pressure also. I’m more mature. I’m 28 now. I’m on the tour since ...

Pete Sampras on Rafa: Tennis legend Pete Sampras described Rafael Nadal as "incredible" after watching the world number one live for the first time at the Australian Open. Nadal, 27, faces Stanislas Wawrinka in Sunday's final, and a win will see him equal Sampras's 14 Grand Slam titles. "I think he's incredible," Sampras told BBC Sport. "I saw him play live for the first time on Friday night and the movement he has is incredible." "He's able to adjust his shots on the run. I've never seen anything like it." Sampras, 42, ended his career in 2002 with a record 14 major singles titles, only for Roger Federer to surpass him and amass 17 in his career to date. And Nadal is widely expect to draw level with the American on Sunday when he takes on Federer's fellow Swiss Wawrinka, playing in his first major final. Sampras arrived in Melbourne on Friday in time to see the Spaniard beat Federer in straight sets in the semi-finals. "To see him play - he hits a very heavy ball, serves pretty well, he does everything," ...

Annacone on Federer: 'Plenty of greatness left' Few have held a better seat to observe greatness than Paul Annacone. The coach of Pete Sampras for the majority of his career until he officially retired in 2003, and, until last week, a mainstay of Roger Federer's entourage since 2010, Annacone has witnessed firsthand the challenges these overlapping champions faced as age and rivals inevitably whittled away at their dominance. According to Annacone, even past 30 count them out at your own peril. "Greatness doesn't stop," Annacone told USA TODAY Sports in a phone interview Sunday following the announcement the day before that he and Federer had parted ways after a 3½-year association. "It doesn't just go away. He's not all of a sudden now not that good anymore. The problem is that the expectations and the bar are so high." Annacone said he would be "surprised" if Federer finished his career without nabbing another major. "Whenever you start to doubt people like this you kind of set yourself up to get your ...
Pete Sampras thinks Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic are not dominant enough to win seven Wimbledon titles:
Roger Federer admitted at The Championships on Sunday that he is “ready for the challenge” of potentially needing to beat Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic if he is to retain his Wimbledon title.
Ten years after Roger Federer made his Grand Slam breakthrough at Wimbledon, the 17-time major winner returns to the All England Club next week as defending champion, but with the clock ticking. The Swiss put his growing army of critics firmly in their place in 2012 when, after back-to-back quarterfinal defeats, he captured his seventh Wimbledon title, equalling the record of Pete Sampras. Federer, meanwhile, ended a 10-month title drought at the weekend when he won the Halle grasscourt tournament for the sixth time – it was his first piece of silverware since Cincinnati on the eve of the 2012 US Open. That would have spiced up his confidence ahead of Wimbledon, but there are huge doubts over whether or not he can carry that spring in his elegant step onto the famous lawns of south-west London and be the first man to win Wimbledon eight times. Age is a factor. Federer will be 32 in August while Sampras won the last of his Wimbledon titles as a 28-year-old in 2000. An eighth victory for Federer next mont ...

Dubai: Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have played in the last two Grand Slam finals and it's easy to imagine their rivalry overshadowing an aging Roger Federer and an injury-plagued Rafael Nadal in the years to come. But the second-ranked Federer will have none of it. As he prepares to defend his Dubai Championships title, the 31-year-old Federer said on Sunday he is playing "excellent tennis" and is confident he can overtake Djokovic for top spot although he acknowledged it will be a challenge given that he plans to scale back his schedule in 2013. He plans to take several weeks off ahead of the start of the clay season. "Absolutely realistic, if you play great," Federer said of returning to No. 1, a spot he last held for 17 weeks until Oct. 29, 2012 , breaking a record of 286 weeks at the top held by Pete Sampras. "The question is will I be able to do that or will I be allowed. Time will tell," Federer said. "I know it's possible. I know it's possible to win tournaments. But right now, a big focus is on ...

Rafael Nadal beats Novak Djokovic to win seventh French Open Rafael Nadal won a record seventh French Open title after ruthlessly snuffing out Novak Djokovic's comeback to win 6-4 6-3 2-6 7-5 in a rain-affected final. Nadal resumed leading 6-4 6-3 2-6 1-2, but his uncharacteristic wobble late on Sunday had fuelled Djokovic's belief. The Spaniard broke back in the first game of the day however, and then piled pressure on an unsettled Djokovic. The Serb finally folded with a double fault to hand Nadal an 11th Grand Slam. Having drawn level with Bjorn Borg on six Roland Garros titles last year, the victory gave Nadal sole ownership of the landmark, and the 26-year-old is likely to have plenty of opportunities to stretch further clear. The only three men to have more Grand Slam victories - Roger Federer with 16, Pete Sampras on 14 and Roy Emerson on 12 - are now in his sights. The crowd had returned to Court Philippe Chatrier entertaining the possibility that they may witness a different piece of tennis histo ...
