In Roger Federer: The Inspiring Story of One of Tennis' Greatest Legends, you will learn the inspirational story of one of tennis' premier players, Roger Federer.

An excerpt from the book:

There are four things for which Switzerland is globally renowned: Chocolate, precision timepieces, neutrality, and Roger Federer. The last allows the Swiss people to blissfully ignore the third when it comes to discussing where the superstar tennis player ranks in the sport’s pantheon.

Federer has an enjoyed a playing career that is at the sunset of a second decade, and his recent recovery from knee surgery and Renaissance to win the Australian Open in January 2017 shows that the Swiss maestro still has something left in his bag of tricks, even at age 35.

His 18 Grand Slam singles titles are the most of any player in the Open Era. That number is more impressive considering that his career intersected the sport’s history at a time where Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic tied for second and fourth place in that category with 14 and 12, respectively.

These three players have had a stranglehold on major titles for nearly a generation, winning the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and the U.S. Open a combined 44 times dating to Federer’s first Wimbledon crown in summer of 2003. But it is the elegant Federer who currently stands above the gritty Nadal and the jack-of-all-surfaces Djokovic, due in large part to his metronome-like consistency at an elite level for more than a decade.

On the path to becoming arguably the greatest of all time in his sport, Federer’s rise was one seen in the distance, starting with his play in juniors. He had to mature from petulant teenager to talented and promising young player on the ATP Tour. Federer then had to absorb match and life lessons from his peers to become a better player.

And since the summer following his first victory at the all-England club, Federer’s place in tennis lore has come by way of reaction and evolution. He has honed his already finely tuned all-around game and enhanced it with strategy. That often kept him one step ahead of the chasing pack, though now in the autumn of his playing days, it is helping him try to emerge from it.
