Tomas Berdych v Roger Federer match highlights (QF)

Federer is one of the founders, via his management company TEAM8, of the Laver Cup ; the annual team tennis tournament which pits Europe against the rest of the world.

He co-founded the tournament in honor of tennis legend Rod Laver and the inaugural edition was played in In , Federer returned to the Australian Open to defend his title and won his 20th Grand Slam tournament.

This win placed him a total of four major titles ahead of long-time rival Rafael Nadal, who had won 16 Grand Slam tournaments.

However, Nadal winning the French Open narrowed the gap back to three. Roger Federer has huge popularity in the world of athletics, to the point that he has been called a living legend in his own time.

No other male tennis player has won 20 major singles titles in the Open Era, and he has been in 30 major finals, including 10 in a row.

He has held the world No. He was also ranked No. Federer has won a record eight Wimbledon titles, and a joint-record six Australian Open titles.

He has been voted by his peers to receive the tour Sportsmanship Award a record thirteen times and voted by tennis fans to receive the ATP Fans' Favorite award for fifteen consecutive years.

Federer helped to lead a revival in tennis known by many as the Golden Age. This led to increased interest in the sport, which in turn led to higher revenues for many venues across tennis.

Upon winning the French Open and completing the career Grand Slam, Federer became the first individual male tennis player to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated since Andre Agassi in Federer's versatility has been described by Jimmy Connors as: An elite athlete, Federer is an all-court, all-around player known for his speed, fluid style of play, and exceptional shot making.

Federer mainly plays from the baseline but is also comfortable at the net, being one of the best volleyers in the game.

David Foster Wallace compared the brute force of Federer's forehand motion with that of "a great liquid whip", [] while John McEnroe has referred to Federer's forehand as "the greatest shot in our sport.

Federer plays with a single-handed backhand, which gives him great variety. He employs the slice , occasionally using it to lure his opponent to the net and deliver a passing shot.

Federer can also fire topspin winners and possesses a 'flick' backhand with which he can generate pace with his wrist; this is usually used to pass the opponent at the net.

He is often able to produce big serves on key points during a match. Later in his career, Federer added the drop shot to his arsenal and can perform a well-disguised one off both wings.

He sometimes uses a between-the-legs shot, which is colloquially referred to as a " tweener " or "hotdog".

His most notable use of the tweener was in the semifinals of the US Open against Novak Djokovic , bringing him triple match point.

Since Stefan Edberg joined his coaching team at the start of the season, Federer has played a more offensive game, attacking the net more often, and improved his volley shots.

The SABR is a unique shot that Federer owns, in the way that he manages to add enough power and placement into the shot, which makes it very difficult, or close to impossible for the opponent to reach it.

The bigger racket has enabled easier serving and better defense on both wings with fewer shanks. However this has diminished his forehand, slice backhand and dropshot.

Federer is also noted for his cool demeanour and emotional control on the court. In contrast to his early career, most of his professional game has been characterised by lack of outbursts or emotional frustration at errors, which gives him an advantage over less controlled opponents.

I don't get the anxiety during a match so much anymore. You know, to throw racquets, to toss balls out of the court, scream and stuff.

I almost laugh [on the inside] about it a little bit today when an opponent does it. But that's something for me that's not a problem any more.

He switched to a bigger custom-built Wilson 90 square inch head racquet in Federer first signed with Nike footwear and apparel in Federer's contract with Nike expired in March , and he later signed a deal with Uniqlo.

Federer is one of the highest-earning athletes in the world. He is listed at No. Federer received fourth-round walkovers at the US Open and and the Wimbledon Championships , and a second-round walkover at the Australian Open ; these are not counted as wins.

He has been voted by his peers to receive the tour Sportsmanship Award a record thirteen times and voted by tennis fans to receive the ATP Fans' Favorite award for fifteen consecutive years.

Federer helped to lead a revival in tennis known by many as the Golden Age. This led to increased interest in the sport, which in turn led to higher revenues for many venues across tennis.

Upon winning the French Open and completing the career Grand Slam, Federer became the first individual male tennis player to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated since Andre Agassi in Federer's versatility has been described by Jimmy Connors as: An elite athlete, Federer is an all-court, all-around player known for his speed, fluid style of play, and exceptional shot making.

Federer mainly plays from the baseline but is also comfortable at the net, being one of the best volleyers in the game. David Foster Wallace compared the brute force of Federer's forehand motion with that of "a great liquid whip", [] while John McEnroe has referred to Federer's forehand as "the greatest shot in our sport.

Federer plays with a single-handed backhand, which gives him great variety. He employs the slice , occasionally using it to lure his opponent to the net and deliver a passing shot.

Federer can also fire topspin winners and possesses a 'flick' backhand with which he can generate pace with his wrist; this is usually used to pass the opponent at the net.

He is often able to produce big serves on key points during a match. Later in his career, Federer added the drop shot to his arsenal and can perform a well-disguised one off both wings.

He sometimes uses a between-the-legs shot, which is colloquially referred to as a " tweener " or "hotdog". His most notable use of the tweener was in the semifinals of the US Open against Novak Djokovic , bringing him triple match point.

Federer is also noted for his cool demeanour and emotional control on the court. In contrast to his early career, most of his professional game has been characterised by lack of outbursts or emotional frustration at errors, which gives him an advantage over less controlled opponents.

I don't get the anxiety during a match so much anymore. You know, to throw racquets, to toss balls out of the court, scream and stuff.

I almost laugh [on the inside] about it a little bit today when an opponent does it. But that's something for me that's not a problem any more.

It has a 97 square inch head, 16x19 string pattern, gram strung weight, gram swing weight, 68 RA stiffness, and 9 point head light balance.
