As of now, the number one tennis player in the world is Roger Federer. The Swiss born legend has been ranked number 1 for an astounding total of 307 weeks throughout his career and of those weeks, 237 have been consecutive up to now. Federer is considered one of the greatest players of all time for a multitude of reasons. He has a level of finesse and creativity to his game that most players only dream of acquiring. While his opponent can batter him with speedy shots, Federer knows how to get the upper hand and entertain the audience while doing it. Another thing that is truly amazing about the tennis legend is his age. Federer is 36 years old, the oldest player to ever become number 1. Federer´s first official tournament was in 1998. The man has been playing the game for 20 years now and he has maintained his high level of playing ever since the beginning. Roger first appeared at the number 1 rank in 2004! What’s even more unbelievable is when you consider it from the standpoint of an up and coming player. The youngest tennis player in the top 30´s is 20 year old Alexander Zverev Jr. Alexander was just a kid back when Federer was number 1 in 2004. Federer was already a superstar then and now Alexander plays tennis professionally and actually has played against Federer multiple times. As times goes on, the tennis legend continually does something new or breaks a new record. Not only is he the oldest player to ever earn a number 1 ranking, but he has also stayed at the number 1 spot longer than any player ever. No matter where you look, you can easily find some record that Federer has set or broken. Now, all we can hope for is for Federer to continue playing as long as he can but as age may start taking its toll, the road ahead for the Swiss tennis legend is more than a little foggy.
