Roger Federer has huge popularity in the world of sport, 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.

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.

His serve is difficult to read because he always uses a similar ball toss, regardless of what type of serve he is going to hit and where he aims to hit it, and turns his back to his opponents during his motion.

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.

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.
