THANKS TO THEM
Every year,lots of Tennis tournaments are organized such as Australia Open,Barcelona Open etc.We have the chance to see the most brilliant players of all time.Thanks to them,we love tennis. Let’s see who they are!
With a long career that included both the pre and post Open Era, Ken Rosewall certainly deserves a place among the all-time greats of tennis. His eight Grand Slam titles combined with 15 Major Championships undoubtedly qualifies Rosewall a place in tennis immortality. With a career that started in the early 1950s and ended with his retirement in 1980, the quick and agile Aussie was renowned for his backhand and crisp and accurate volleying. His last Grand Slam title came at the 1972 Australian Open at the age of 37, still a record for the oldest Grand Slam winner. Rosewall also owns the record for the second oldest Grand Slam winner when he won the 1971 Australian Open at the age of 36.
Were it not for the recurring tendinitis in his knees, and wrist injuries, Rafael Nadal may well have a few more Grand Slam titles to his already impressive resume. At 31 years of age, the fiery Spaniard, known as Rafa and “The King of Clay,” already has 16 Grand Slam titles and certainly has the potential to catch Roger Federer. Rafael is regarded as the greatest clay court player of all-time, although fans of Bjorn Borg may dispute this claim. His record 10th French Open title in 2017 certainly makes it difficult to imagine anyone being better on clay.
And here it is, Roger Federer
It’s hard not to select Roger Federer as the greatest of all time. His record 20 Grand Slam titles speak for themselves, and even at the age of 36, he is still winning and competing at the highest levels. His 302 weeks ranked as number one in the world is an open-era record.
From 2004 to 2008, Federer went 237 consecutive weeks being ranked number one in the world, a record that may never be surpassed. Even though younger players are now finding a way to beat him, his consistently high level of play over his twenty year career is a testament to his conditioning and ability. Winning the 2018 Australian Open at the age of 36, after his outstanding 2017 season that saw him win Wimbledon and the Australian Open prove without a doubt that Roger Federer is indeed the greatest of all-time.
