Roger Federer: The Rise and Fall of a Star

Roger, Six Sports

Roger Federer, a name which will never be forgotten from the minds of tennis lovers. The Swiss legend has 20 Grand Slams under his belt. This tally includes 8 Wimbledon Open, 6 Australian Open, 5 US Open and 1 French Open. It has been a long struggle to reach to the top of the tennis world and Roger knows how to face every challenge life throws at him.

It all started when a boy defeated the tennis great, Pete Sampras in the fourth round of the Wimbledon by 6–3, 3–6, 6–3, 2–6, 9–7. The centre court never expected a boy to play so well in front of a packed audience. He then went on to win a record five consecutive Wimbledon titles from 2003 to 2007.

He never looked back and outplayed every opponent. Roger remained calm even during the most critical sets.

He accepts the fact that it is a significant change from playing on Court 2 to the Centre Court.

It’s been a tough year for Roger since the player dropped out of several tournaments after sustaining an injury during Wimbledon 2021. He is hopeful about his comeback in the Laver Cup which will be held in August this year.

There are also speculations about Roger exiting the sport. These came after he made few comments in a talkshow : “I don’t think I need the tennis. I am very happy at home.”

Let’s see how things will turn out in the future.
