FEDERER RISES ABOVE
by James Buddell | 16.07.2012
Roger Federer is a genius at winning matches, with aesthetic beauty, in the power era of tennis. Over the course of his career, he has left an indelible mark on the sport’s record books.
Today, he starts his 287th week at No. 1 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings. It is another record-breaking milestone in a career of unrivalled achievement.
….Eight days ago, his hard work paid off. By equalling Pete Sampras’ record of seven Wimbledon titles, Federer once again became the World No. 1 just four weeks shy of his 31st birthday.
It was a source of great pride.
