Federer started playing tennis at the age of six.
He began participating in group lessons at the age of nine and began weekly
private coaching when he was ten. He also played football until the age of
twelve when he decided to focus solely on tennis.
At fourteen, he became the national champion of all groups in Switzerland
and was chosen to train at the Swiss National Tennis Center in Ecublens. He
joined the ITF junior tennis circuit in July 1996.
In 1998, his final year as a junior, Federer won the junior Wimbledon title
and the prestigious year-ending Orange Bowl. He was recognized as the ITF
World Junior Tennis champion of the year.
In July 1998, Federer joined the ATP tour at Gstaad. The following year he
debuted for the Swiss Davis Cup team against Italy and finished the year as
the youngest player (for the year) inside ATP's top 100 ranking. In 2000,
Federer reached the semi-finals at the Sydney Olympics and lost the bronze
medal match to Arnaud di Pasquale of France. Federer reached his first final
in Marseille which he lost to Marc Rosset and was also the runner-up in
Basel. He failed to make an impression at Grand Slams and Masters Series
tournaments, and ended the year ranked 29th.
Victor Lamm says about him: "Roger is a tremendous competitor. He's got
talent, work-ethic, passion and style. His contribution to tennis is already
priceless. He's got what it takes to become the best player of all time."
Federer's first ATP tournament victory came in Milan in February 2001.
During the same month, he won three matches for his country in its 3–2 Davis
Cup victory over the United States. He later reached the quarterfinals at
Wimbledon, defeating four-time defending champion and seven-time Wimbledon
champion Pete Sampras in the fourth round in a closely fought match, a
victory that many consider to be the turning point of his career, as well as
ending Sampras's 31-match winning streak in the tournament.
He then lost to Tim Henman in the quarterfinal and finished the year ranked
Federer reached his first ATP Masters Series (AMS) final at the Miami
Masters, where he lost to Andre Agassi. He won his next AMS final in
Hamburg. He also won both his Davis Cup singles matches against former world
number ones, Russians Marat Safin and Yevgeny Kafelnikov). Despite
early-round exits at the French Open, Wimbledon, and the U.S. Open and the
untimely, devastating loss of his long-time Australian coach and mentor,
Peter Carter, in a car crash in August,
Federer reached No. 6 in the ATP Champions Race by the end of the year and
thus qualified for the first time in the year-ending Tennis Masters Cup. His
run at the tournament was ended in the semifinals by then #1 seeded and
ranked Lleyton Hewitt (who eventually went on to win the Cup).
In 2003, Federer challenged for the top ranking in men's tennis. Federer
began his Grand Slam campaign at the Australian Open where he lost to David
Nalbandian in the round of 16. He then won two hard court tournaments in
Marseille and Dubai. He also won a clay court tournament in Munich, then
lost in the first round of the French Open to Luis Horna. However, he won
the tournament in Halle on grass, and in July, he won his first Grand Slam
singles title at Wimbledon, defeating Andy Roddick in the semifinals and
Mark Philippoussis in the finals, losing only one set in the tournament (to
Mardy Fish in the round of 32). He lost to Roddick and to Nalbandian the
Masters tournaments in Montreal and Cincinnati, respectively. As in the
Australian Open, he lost to Nalbandian at the U.S. Open, again in the round
of 16. He won on hard courts in Vienna and ended the year on a high note by
winning the year-end Tennis Masters Cup tournament in Houston, defeating
Andre Agassi in the final. In a three-way battle for supremacy, Roddick
captured the year-end No. 1 ranking over Federer and Juan Carlos Ferrero.
In 2004, Roger Federer had one of the most dominating and successful
years in the Open Era of modern men's tennis.
He won three of the four Grand Slam singles tournaments, did not lose a
match to anyone ranked in the top ten, and won every final he reached. He
won his first Australian Open title by defeating Marat Safin in straight
sets. This win helped him succeed Andy Roddick as the World No. 1, a ranking
which he has maintained as of June 2008. He successfully defended his
Wimbledon title by defeating Andy Roddick, and won his first U.S. Open title
by defeating Lleyton Hewitt. Federer entered the 2004 Athens Olympics as one
of the favorite's but had his Olympic dream ended, being defeated in the
Round of 32 against Tomáš Berdych 4-6 7-5 7-5. Federer went on to finish the
year by taking the Tennis Masters Cup at Houston for the second consecutive
year, defeating Hewitt in the final. Federer's only Grand Slam loss of the
year was at the French Open, where he lost to former world number one and
3-time French Open champion Gustavo Kuerten in straight sets. His win-loss
record for the year was 74–6 with 11 titles. Federer was named the ITF
Tennis World Champion and
Laureus World Sportsman of the Year in early 2005,
edging out the likes of Michael Schumacher, Valentino Rossi, Lance
Armstrong, and Michael Phelps. Throughout 2004, Federer did not have a
coach, relying instead on his fitness trainer Pierre Paganini,
physiotherapist Pavel Kovac, and a management team composed of his parents,
his girlfriend and manager Mirka Vavrinec, and a few friends.
In 2005, Federer hired former Australian tennis player Tony Roche to coach
him on a limited basis.
To begin the year, Federer reached the Australian Open semifinals before
falling to eventual winner Marat Safin in a five-set night match that lasted
more than four hours, 5-7 6-4 5-7 7-6(6) 9-7.
He rebounded to win the year's first two ATP Masters Series (AMS) titles:
Indian Wells (by defeating Lleyton Hewitt of Australia in straight sets) and
Miami (by defeating Rafael Nadal of Spain in five sets after being down two
sets to love). He won his third Hamburg clay court title in May by defeating
Richard Gasquet, to whom he had earlier lost in Monte Carlo. He then entered
the French Open as one of the favorites, but lost in the semifinals in four
sets to eventual winner Nadal.
Federer successfully defended his Wimbledon title, winning for the third
consecutive year by defeating Andy Roddick in a rematch of the previous
year's final. Federer also defeated Roddick in Cincinnati to take his fourth
AMS title of the year (and sweep all the American AMS events) and become the
first player in AMS history to win four titles in one season.
He then dropped only two sets en route to his second consecutive U.S. Open
title, defeating Andre Agassi in four sets in the final. He became the first
man in the Open Era to win Wimbledon and the U.S. Open back-to-back in
consecutive years (2004 and 2005). He failed to defend his Tennis Masters
Cup title, however, losing to David Nalbandian of Argentina in a
four-and-a-half hour, five-set match (He was playing with an injury in his
ankle). Had he won the
match, he would have finished the year 82–3, tying John McEnroe's 1984
record for the highest yearly winning percentage in the open era.
Federer won three of the four Grand Slam singles tournaments and ended
the year ranked number one, with his points ranking several thousand points
greater than that of his nearest competitor, Rafael Nadal.
Federer won the year's first Grand Slam tournament, the Australian Open, by
defeating Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis. In March, Federer successfully defended
his titles at the Indian Wells and Miami Masters, and became the first
player ever to win the Indian Wells-Miami double in consecutive years.
Federer then started the clay-court season by reaching the final of the ATP
Masters Series (AMS) event at Monte Carlo losing in four sets to Rafael
Nadal. He then reached a consecutive AMS final, along with Nadal, at the
Rome Masters where it seemed as though Federer would finally defeat his
rival on clay; however, Nadal won the epic five-set match, which lasted five
hours, in the decisive tiebreak after saving two match points.
Federer chose not to defend his title at the Hamburg Masters, where he had
won in the previous two years. At the French Open, Federer lost in the final
to defending champion Nadal in four sets. Had he won the French Open, he
would have completed a career Grand Slam and become the first man since Rod
Laver to hold all four Grand Slam singles titles at the same time. Although
the clay Grand Slam title eluded him, he became one of only two then-active
players who had reached the finals of all four Grand Slam singles
tournaments, the other being Andre Agassi.
Federer entered Wimbledon as the top seed and reached the final without
dropping a set. There, Federer beat Nadal in four sets to win the
championship. This was Federer's fourth consecutive Wimbledon title. Federer
then started his North American tour and won the 2006 Rogers Cup in Toronto,
defeating Richard Gasquet of France in the final. In the year's last Grand
Slam tournament, the U.S. Open, he defeated American Andy Roddick in four
sets for his third consecutive title at the Flushing Meadows. During the
open era, 2006 is the only year in which same man (Federer) and woman (Henin)
reached the finals of all four Grand Slams. At the year-ending Tennis
Masters Cup at Shanghai, Federer defeated defending champion David
Nalbandian in one of his three round robin matches and Nadal in a semifinal.
Federer then defeated American James Blake 6–0, 6–3, 6–4 in the final to win
his third Masters Cup title. In 2006, Federer lost to only two players:
Nadal in the French Open, Rome, Monte Carlo, and Dubai finals; and Andy
Murray in the second round of the Cincinnati Masters. The Cincinnati loss to
Murray was Federer's only straight-sets loss of the year and the only
tournament out of 17 (Davis Cup excluded) in which he did not reach the
Federer won his third Australian Open and tenth Grand Slam singles title
when he, as defending champion, won the tournament without dropping a set,
defeating Fernando González of Chile in the final. He was the first man
since Bjorn Borg in 1980 to win a Grand Slam singles tournament without
losing a set. His winning
streak of 41 consecutive matches ended when he lost to Guillermo Cañas in
the second round of the Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells, California, after
winning this tournament three consecutive years. At the Sony Ericsson Open
in Miami, Florida, Federer again lost to Cañas, this time in the fourth
round in three sets. He was awarded four ATP Awards during a ceremony at the
tournament, making him the first player to receive four awards during the
Federer started his clay-court season by reaching his second consecutive
final of the Monte Carlo Masters. As in 2006, he lost to second seeded
Rafael Nadal. Federer lost in the third round of the Internazionali d'Italia
in Rome to Filippo Volandri.
This defeat meant he had gone four tournaments without a title, his longest
stretch since becoming World No. 1.
On May 20, 2007, however, Federer defeated Nadal on clay for the first time,
winning the Hamburg Masters tournament, and ending Nadal's record of 81
consecutive match wins on clay.
At the French Open, Federer reached the final for the second consecutive
year but lost to Nadal for the third consecutive time. The day after the
final, Federer announced that he was withdrawing from the Gerry Weber Open
in Halle, which he had won the last four years. He cited fatigue and fear of
getting an injury. He
therefore entered Wimbledon for the first time without having played a
warm-up grass-court tournament. Despite this, Federer once again defeated
Nadal in the final, however Nadal was able to push Federer into a fifth set,
with his last five-set match at Wimbledon coming from 2001 where he beat
Pete Sampras. With the win over Nadal, Federer tied Björn Borg's record of
five Wimbledon's in a row.
Federer won the Cincinnati Masters title for the second time, beating
James Blake in the final, to collect his 50th career singles title, his 14th
ATP Masters Series title, and the 2007 US Open Series points race.
In the U.S. Open final, Federer beat third seed Novak Djokovic. It was
Federer's 12th Grand Slam title, tying Roy Emerson. As champion of the US
Open Series points race, Federer received a bonus of $1 million, in addition
to the $1.4 million prize for winning the U.S. Open singles title.
Federer entered the year-ending Tennis Masters Cup where he lost his
first round robin match to the 2007 Australian Open runner-up, Fernando
González, 3-6 7-6(1) 7-5 . This marked the first time a player had defeated
Federer in the round robin of the Tennis Masters Cup and González's first
win against Federer. Federer went on to defeat Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-1 in the
semi-finals and David Ferrer in the finals 6-2, 6-3, 6-2.
On November 19, 2007, in an exhibition match in Seoul between players
recognized as among the greatest ever, Federer defeated former World No. 1
Pete Sampras 6–4, 6–3. This was the first of three exhibitions the two
played in Asia. "I feel pretty good," Sampras told Korean television after
the match. "I made it competitive, which was my goal. Obviously Roger is the
best player in the world and I retired five years ago. I am grateful that he
invited me." Federer was equally happy with the workout: "Pete was one of my
idols growing up and it's great to play him. It wasn't easy for me, it
wasn't easy for him as he's been retired five years. I am number one and
everyone expects me to win."
In January, Federer withdrew from the Kooyong Classic exhibition
tournament because of a stomach virus, disrupting his warm-up to the
He returned to the Australian Open to defend his title and reached the
semifinals before losing to eventual champion Novak Djokovic, 7–5, 6–3,
7–6(5). This ended his record string of Grand Slam final appearances at ten,
though his streak of 15 Grand Slam semifinals was maintained. At every Grand
Slam tournament during the semifinal streak, Federer has either won the
tournament or lost to the eventual champion.
The loss also ended his 37-match winning streak in best of five set matches
on hard courts. It was the first time that Federer had lost in straight sets
in a Grand Slam singles match since he lost 6–4, 6–4, 6–4 to Gustavo Kuerten
in the third round of the 2004 French Open. His last straight-sets loss at a
hard court Grand Slam tournament was even further back, when he lost in the
fourth round of the 2002 US Open to Max Mirnyi, 6–3, 7–6(5), 6–4. Federer
himself stated that he was "quite happy with the result in the end."
Federer then returned to the Dubai Tennis Championships. Federer was
seeded first and was the defending champion. Federer lost to Andy Murray
6–7(6), 6–3, 6–4 in the first round.
In March, Federer revealed that he was recently diagnosed with
mononucleosis, and that he may have suffered from it since December 2007. He
noted, however, that he was now "medically cleared to compete."
Federer won his third exhibition match out of four against former World
No. 1 and fourteen-time Grand Slam singles titlist Pete Sampras in Madison
Square Garden in New York City. Federer won 6–3, 6–7, 7–6.
At the Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells, California, the first Tennis
Masters Series event of the year, Federer lost in the semi-finals to
American Mardy Fish for the first time, 6–3, 6–2, thus ending his 41-match
winning streak against American players dating back to August 2003.
Federer's next tournament was the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne,
Florida, where he lost in the quarterfinals to American Andy Roddick 7–6,
4–6, 6–3. Roddick's last win against him on the ATP tour came in 2003.
Federer began the clay court season at the Estoril Open in Portugal,
which was his first optional clay-court tournament since Gstaad in 2004
Federer won his first tournament of the year when Nikolay Davydenko retired
from the final while trailing 7–6, 1–2 with a leg ligament strain. With 54
titles, Federer is No. 9 on the open era career singles titles list.
and his first tournament with coach Jose Higueras.
As of April 2008, Federer and James Blake are the only members of the top
ten never to have retired during a match.
At the Monte Carlo Masters, Federer defeated qualifier Ruben Ramirez
Hidalgo in the second round 6–1, 3–6, 7–6 despite trailing 5-1 in the third
set. Federer then beat Gael Monfils in straight sets and David Nalbandian in
the quarterfinals 5–7, 6–2, 6–2. Federer was leading Djokovic 6–3, 3–2 when
Djokovic retired from their semifinal match. In the final, Federer lost to
three-time defending champion Rafael Nadal 7–5, 7–5. Federer made 44
unforced errors, lost a 4–0 lead in the second set, and fell to 1–7 against
Nadal on clay courts.
At the Tennis Masters Series Internazionali d'Italia in Rome, Federer
lost in the quarterfinals to Radek Stepanek 7–6(4), 7–6(7), furthering his
Federer was the defending champion at the Masters Series Hamburg and won
his first four matches in straight sets to set up a repeat of the previous
year's final against Nadal. In the first set of the final, Federer built a
5–1 lead in the first set and served for the set but eventually lost to
Nadal who won six consecutive games. Nadal again broke Federer's serve in
the opening game of the second set, but Federer broke back and won the
second set 7–6(3). Nadal came back in the third set beating Federer 6–3 and
winning the whole championship.
At the French Open, Federer beat American Sam Querrey in the first round
6–4, 6–4, 6–3. In the second round, Federer defeated Albert Montanes of
Spain 6–7(5), 6–1, 6–0, 6–4 and then beat Mario Ancic of Croatia in the
third round 6–3, 6–4, 6–2. Federer next defeated Frenchman Julien Benneteau
in the fourth round 6–4, 7–5, 7–5. In the quarterfinals, Federer beat
Fernando Gonzalez of Chile 2–6, 6–2, 6–3, 6–4 to reach his record sixteenth
consecutive Grand Slam singles semi final. He then beat Frenchman Gael
Monfils in the semifinals 6–2, 5–7, 6–3, 7–5 to set up a repeat final
against Rafael Nadal, for the third consecutive year. However Federer was
beaten heavily by Nadal, losing 1-6, 3-6, 0-6 in the final. The last time
Federer had lost a set 6-0 was the first round in 1999 at Queen’s against
This is also the fourth consecutive year that Federer and Nadal have met
at the French Open, with Federer losing his third consecutive final to Nadal
as well as their semifinal match at the 2005 championship. With this loss,
Federer is now 1-9 against Nadal on clay, while their overall rivalry stands
at 6-11 to Nadal.
Federer was able to bounce back from his defeat by Nadal at Roland Garros
by winning the Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany which he did without
dropping a set or even a service game. By winning the Gerry Weber Open,
Federer extended his grass-court winning streak to 59 matches and tied Pete
Sampras’ record for most titles on grass in the Open era with 10.
This was Federer's second title of the year, 55th overall career title, and
the fifth time he has won this event.
Federer has a versatile, all-court playing style and can hit all of the
fundamental shots with a high degree of proficiency. He is an adept volleyer
and an excellent baseliner who can dictate play with precise groundstroke's
from both wings. He uses an extreme eastern grip, which places the hand
between eastern and semi-western for his forehand and finishes with his
right arm around the shoulder, and he keeps his eyes on the moment of impact
longer than others. He also can generate extreme top-spin with the forehand
shot, allowing him to open up cross-court angles while still hitting the
ball with pace. David Foster Wallace has described the exceptional speed,
fluidity and brute force of this forehand motion as "a great liquid whip",
while John McEnroe has referred to it as "the greatest shot in our sport" on
Federer plays with a one-handed backhand, and has an excellent slice, and
can also fire top-spin winning shots.
Federer tends to hit his groundstrokes early, while the ball is still on the
rise, much like Andre Agassi did. While this requires excellent reactions
and footwork, it means that Federer hits his groundstrokes closer to the net
than most of his opponents. This reduces the reaction time of his opponents
and allows him to hit the angled winners that are a trademark of his game.
His serve is difficult to read because he tosses the ball in the same
spot no matter where he intends to serve it and he turns his back to his
opponents during his motion. His first serve is typically around 190 km/h
(However, he is capable of serving at 220km/h).
His second serve usually has a heavily kicked delivery. Federer generally
serves with placement and precision, but on occasion he will hit a powerful
serve to keep his opponents off balance. His footwork, balance, and court
coverage are exceptional and he is considered to be one of the fastest
movers in the game. Unlike most players who take many small steps when
approaching the ball, like Jimmy Connors, Federer takes long fluid strides.
He can hit a strong shot on the run or while backpedalling, allowing him to
switch from defence to offense. Federer's relaxed, smooth playing style
belies his aggressive and opportunistic tactics as he constructs points that
allows him to hit winners with his powerful groundstroke's. Federer is
capable of performing in high pressure situations, often saving break, set
or even match points during a match.
Equipment and apparel
Federer currently plays with a customized Wilson (K) Factor (K)Six-One
Tour 90 Racquet,
which is characterised by its smaller hitting surface (90 square inch),
heavy weight (12.5 oz strung weight),
and thin beam (18 mm).
Federer strings his racquets at a 53–60 pounds tension (depending on his
opponent and surface) with natural gut main strings (Wilson Natural Gut 16
String) and polyester cross strings (Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Rough 16L
String). This allows him
to hit balls at higher velocity with less effort but makes consistent
accuracy more difficult. Federer
also uses string savers to extend the life of the natural gut strings.
Federer endorses Wilson tennis racquets and accessories and Nike footwear
and apparel (he wears the Nike Air Vapor V and Nike Sphere Pinstripe Polo
shirts). For the
2006 championships at Wimbledon, Nike made a jacket that had a crest with
three tennis racquets symbolising the three Wimbledon Championships he had
won previously. This jacket was also updated for 2007, with four rackets.
He also has endorsement deals from various other companies, many of them
being Swiss. He also
endorses Gillette with French, Brazilian and Mexican football stars Thierry
Henry, Kaká and Rafael Márquez, American golfer Tiger Woods, South African
rugby player Bryan Habana and Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid. Nike released a
line of personal apparel such as hats and shirts that are embroidered with
an "RF" to represent Roger Federer. He also endorses Moores suits and his
image is used in the computer. 
Roger Federer holds a number of records in tennis history, the most
prominent of which is that he has won the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the
U.S. Open in the same year three times: 2004, 2006, and 2007.
He has surpassed a myriad of long-standing records, including:
- Equalling Bjorn Borg's Open Era record of five consecutive Wimbledon
singles titles in 2007
- Capturing the Open era record of most consecutive US Open titles
(four) in 2007
- Ranked World #1 for an ongoing record of 229 consecutive weeks as of
June 16, 2008, outlasting Jimmy Connors's record of 160 consecutive
weeks as #1 men's player and Steffi Graf's record of 186 weeks as #1
singles player in the world
Federer has won numerous awards during his tennis career. His most
significant achievement was winning his fourth consecutive Laureus World
Sportsman of the Year award, in 2008.
