Roger Federer

Roger Federer is the greatest tennis player the world has ever known. He holds almost every record in the game and is a 16-time Grand Slam Champion. His most recent slam victory was the Australian Open.

Unfortunately, very few people here in Canada even know his name. His next appearance is the French Open and even if you know nothing of the game take the time to watch him play. What he does on a tennis court is a testament to the wonder of the human mind and body, as it is with many professional athletes.

On and off the court Roger Federer is one of the finest, if not the best, of what an athlete should be to their sport. For those who know or play the game of tennis none will have enough adjectives to describe the greatness of Roger Federer at this time in our history. And with all respect to his competitors, Roger Federer is the best.
