Federer The Best Player in Tennis
If Muhammad Ali, Pele, Tiger Woods, Michael Schumacher and Michael Jordan are arguably the greatest proponents of their respective sports, Roger Federer made a compelling case for joining that pantheon of greats after securing a record-equaling seventh title on Sunday.
At the age of 30, considered a grand old age in tennis, he came from behind to leave Andy Murray -- an opponent five years his junior -- shattered and tearful .
It ended Federer's two-and-a-half-year wait for a record-extending 17th grand slam title, and equaled his hero .
"I believe Roger is the best player to have ever played the game," American tennis coach Nick Bollettieri told CNN.
