If you want to read a perspective on just how amazing he is as a player and contributor to his sport, I cannot recommend David Foster Wallace’s article “Roger Federer as a Religious Experience” more highly. Click here to read it now.
In one sentence David Foster Wallace states “The Moments are more intense if you’ve played enough tennis to understand the impossibility of what you just saw him do.”
Below then a link to three perfect examples of just how ridiculously good this man is at his sport, both on the court and off it.

2. Under the leg shot #2 – US Open 2010
3. 2010 Gilette Ad Shoot behind the scenes footage
I particularly love the”Bartlett Moment” at the end, when he just walks away from the stunned crew, turns to his assistant as they leave the room and says “Whats Next?”. Perfect.
