Roger Federer. An All-Time Great

Original title: Roger Federer. Le plus grand de tous les temps


Preface by Mike Powell

A uniquely personal vision and account of the life and career of the 20-time Grand Slam champion, Roger Federer, accompanied by stunning photography.

Much has been written and said about the life, career, playing style, and victories of the inspirational tennis champion, Roger Federer.

This superb biography, filled with photos from his remarkable career, features a wealth of interviews, quotes, and accounts from family, friends, adversaries, and the press, not to mention remarks by Federer himself, from his early days in Ecublens to the present day. Björn Borg, for example, is quoted saying: “For me, Roger is the greatest player to ever play the game. Watching him play and win is always a pleasure, and I am sure we are going to see a lot more of Federer in the future; he is going to win more Grand Slams.” An exceptional volume presenting a unique perspective of Federer’s career – up-close and personal, and captured in images!

Radio France presenter Fabrice Abgrall and renowned sports journalist François Thomazeau have followed Federer since his early days on the pro tour.

A few years back, Abgrall had a lightbulb moment and began keeping a written record of all of Federer’s post-match statements, together with those of his opponents and other select observers. Captured in the heat of the moment, their remarks today provide invaluable insights into the tennis champion’s personality. Though he has not always won unanimous praise – and over the years, has even made a few enemies – one thing is certain: Roger Federer has left an indelible mark on the sport of tennis.
