The greatest Tennis Player in History

Roger Federer became tennis's greatest men's champion, watched by millions around the globe, to claim tennis's holy grail the world's number one tennis event, the Wimbledon crown.

It was also a record 15th Grand Slam title for the Swiss master, overhauling the total of Pete Sampras who was in the Royal Box along with fellow legends Bjorn Borg and Rod Laver.

Pete Sampras later said of Roger:" He is a great champion and a good guy. He is very humble, which I like." Pete later predicted that Federer, who is still only 27, can go and get more Grand Slam records. Winning the event brought Roger Federer back to No 1 position.
