The great Roger Federer turns 39 today. The Swiss who has cancelled the rest of his 2020 season to continue to recover from two surgeries on his right knee.

Federer’s last match was a semifinal loss to Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open.

At 39, the 4th-ranked Federer is the oldest player in the Top 100 and the second oldest in the Top 500 behind only the 41-year-old Ivo Karlovic.

Also on a busy birthday roll today are Canadian phenom Felix Auger-Aliassime who turns 20, Tatjana Maria (33) and Sesil Karatantcheva (31).

While I often rooted against Federer, Hewitt, before I knew that Leyton Hewitt was a louse. Nalbandian, Safin, early “pirate Rafa” Cora, then Murray, DelPo, and for me of course Djokovic.
But knowing Roger will not be around much longer, time to also say I have been privileged to see the legend Federer is. The elegance, the shots, all the classic matches the not widely seen classics – most often outside the Slams.
I deeply respect his commitment to the sport and the phenomenal consistency he has had, always being in the hunt, still dangerous to any foe between his age of 33 to maybe 37, for two decades.

Happy 39th Roger! And hope you are still ruining younger player’s days at age 40. (the non star-struck ones).

I subscribe to every single word, @chrisford1. It truly has been a priviledge, even if he’s not the player I root for in the Big 3. I hope he can play a bit more next year. It would add to his legend and give us the pleasure of enjoying his game for a little bit more.

Maybe the forced rest will help him with that.

Fed’s not the GOAT. Piled up his GS titles during weak era, then Nadal and Djokovic came along and he has a losing record against each of them.

I missed this. Happy Bday GOAT!
