    legend Rod Laver says Roger Federer is the greatest of all time

    Laver said: “For me, I think Roger Federer is certainly the greatest player that has come along.

    “He’s stood the test of time. That’s probably the one thing that puts you in that category of the best ever.

    “It’s just unusual to see a wonderful champion like that be able to win at age 36 after seven tough matches.

    “You just marvel at his tenacity and his floating ability on the court.
    “He just seems like he’s floating all around the court, he’s not running. That’s something else.
    “I marvel at the age of 36 to be playing what I think in many ways is the best tennis that he’s played.”

    Rod Laver watched as Federer reached 20 Grand Slam titles

    Roger Federer suggests he’s not actually the GOAT after all

    ‘Like Bjorn Borg, he only went to Australia once or twice because it was during the Christmas, and he was happy at home instead of travelling,’ Federer told Gulf News.

    ‘I worked extremely hard to have a great career, and sometimes have chased records.
    ‘But you know, it’s hard to judge who is the best of all time, you see Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, Rod Laver, Rafael Nadal, Ivan Lendl, Jimmy Connors and Pete Sampras.

    ‘There are so many players [who] did fabulous things,

    so I tried my best with my career. I didn’t expect myself playing maybe this well at this age. I’m happy with what I achieved, and hope I can keep going.’

    What was the results of Brisbane open round 1

    Posted on January 1, 2014 at 05:00 ET


    sailed a backhand long, then missed two forehands to get broken.
    In the second game, the man who has spent more weeks ranked No.
    1 than anyone else dumped a backhand into the net,
    then shanked two other backhands several feet wide.
    I am able to do it at - its cool.
