If there’s anything greater than the breathtaking natural ability that Roger Federer brings to a tennis court, it’s the many records that his rare gift has delivered. Alongside 20 Grand Slam titles, there are a further 10 major finals and 310 weeks at world No.1 – 237 of them consecutive. He holds tournament records for most championships at Basel (10), Halle (10), Wimbledon (8), ATP Masters 1000 Cincinnati (7) and ATP Finals (6). Federer has been a member in three of Team Europe’s championship teams at the Laver Cup: Prague 2017, Chicago 2018 and Geneva 2019.
A husband to Mirka and father to twin daughters Myla and Charlene, as well as twin sons Leo and Lenny. Federer has thrived in his position as an elder statesman of tennis, with his outstanding performances on tour enhanced by many off-court services to the sport and charitable causes. As reverential as he is revered, Federer’s commitment to honor the game’s glorious history helped establish the Laver Cup.
Shortly after winning his 20th Grand Slam title at Australian Open 2018, Federer became the oldest world No.1 in history. His return to the top spot came 14 years after he first achieved the feat, setting a new record for longest span between reigns as No.1. In February 2019, Federer became only the second man in history to win 100 ATP singles titles. Federer underwent knee surgery after reaching the quarterfinals at Wimbledon 2021 and is set to return to competitive tennis at the Laver Cup in London. He remains unbeaten in Laver Cup singles from six matches.
