Roger Federer would undoubtedly be the most well-liked, claims a former ace.

Finally, Roger Federer concluded his letter of resignation from tennis, a sport he has participated in for more than 20 years, with the words “To tennis: I love you and I will never leave you.” When the Swiss tennis player joined the men’s circuit before the new millennium, a new era in the sport’s history had just begun.

Twenty Grand Slam titles: six Australian Open, five United States Open, one Roland Garros, eight Wimbledons, none like him. Nobody liked him in this, either. On February 2, 2004, he became the number one person in the world for the first time during 237 consecutive weeks.

Carlos Alcaraz, a new Slam champion and the new world number one, paid respect to the glory of the Swiss. The Spanish tennis player kept his first social media posting to only stating his name and a shattered heart on Twitter.

The Iberian prodigy didn’t truly express his gratitude until much later, when he penned the following: “Roger Federer is one of my idols and a source of inspiration!

I appreciate everything you’ve done for our sport. I want to play with you still. I’m hoping for the best for what lies ahead for you,” he stated in an Instagram post. In his social media post, the Spaniard made it apparent that he still harbors a competitive urge to take on Roger Federer.

The phrase alludes to a recent declaration made by Alcaraz. The current top player had expressed interest in playing the former top player after winning the US Open, saying, “I would like to play against Federer.”

Mats Wilander considers Federer.

Tennis hero Roger Federer has received praise from Eurosport expert Mats Wilander, who compared watching the Swiss superstar to listening to Pavarotti sing Bob Dylan songs. “I thought maybe he had three or four more events in him.

But at the same time, I believe that when we realize the level that the game has reached recently, both he and we should understand that returning to that level at age 40 or 41 is practically impossible.

So I suppose the answer is indeed, and sad. However, I also think it’s important to acknowledge that Roger Federer elevated our sport to the pinnacle of professional athletics since, in addition to being the greatest tennis player of all time at one point, Federer was also named one of the world’s finest athletes for a year or two.

Federer was by far the best athlete and accomplished three in a single year three times. He will always be the most significant and greatest advocate of our sport, in my opinion, because of the manner he performed. And while we cannot consider him to be the best tennis player in terms of ability, he is without a doubt the most well-liked and the one who has brought our sport into homes where people who had never even watched tennis before have enjoyed him.
