Greatest player of all time?
Federer is currently 29 years of age and ranked number 3 in the world. Many players his age drop a significant amount in the world rankings. Federer is 4 years older than Rafael Nadal and 5 years older than Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray who are his biggest rivals. Its amazing how he can keep up his quality of tennis against his younger rivals.
Debate has broken out recently about who is actually a better tennis player than Federer. Names like Pete Sampras, Rod Laver, John Mcenroe, Bjorn Borg, Andre Agassi and Rafael Nadal were all suggested. All the players above have been some of the greatest tennis players the world has ever seen. But is one of them better than Federer?
In my opinion, Federer is the greatest player in history. Modern tennis is a tougher and more demanding game than it used to be. For Federer to still be playing at the level he is now is simply extraordinary.
What do you guys think? Who is the greatest tennis player in history?
