Before the 20 Grand Slam
Titles, the most in tennis history, Roger Federer was slanging aces as a child in Switzerland. The country’s junior champion at just age 14, Federer quickly rose to high rankings. He was the youngest player ever to finish in the world’s top 100. His first grand slam title came in 2003 at Wimbledon. He would go on to win the title at Wimbledon and additional seven times, his most won grand slam tournament.
Federer’s early success continued and in 2005 he had a signature year winning 11 of 15 tournaments including Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.
