The GOAT, the classiest tennis player in the history of the game, happens to be this man. His forehand is a weapon, and his backhand is a thing of beauty. His mind is among the most sophisticated in the tennis world, and this man is an artist of the sport. Born on the 8th of August, 1981, in Basel, Switzerland, the king of tennis began his journey just like any other kid. Switzerland had never produced anything like him before and, quite frankly, might never again. No one had any reason to think otherwise. There weren’t any high hopes for him, and the media didn’t hype him up. But when he won the Wimbledon in 1998 as a junior, it was very clear where he was going to be. With 103 career titles, second only to Jimmy Connors, this Swiss man didn’t disappoint the very few that believed in him from the beginning.
He has twenty Grand Slams to his name as well. As the most complete player in history, he will go down as the best in our books. There is no doubt whatsoever in our minds.
