I once told somebody, Roger Federer plays tennis like God would, and the person was quick to reply, "He doesn't play like God, he is one."
5 years down the line, even the most practical parts of my brain have started believing the same. After all, winning 20 grand slam titles is something that has never been done before, and will most probably never be done again.
He's making history with every game that he plays. Don't take our word for it, here's what everyone else has to say about the tennis legend.
