Becker Believes Federer Is Best Player In Game

Boris Becker, who himself is considered as a legend, has said that the game of tennis has not seen a better player than Roger Federer till date.

Federer lost yet another final last week when Novak Djokovic of Serbia got better of him at All England Club in 5 sets.

Becker was present during that match as Djokovic’s coach and he was pretty impressed with the way Federer kept fighting and took it down to the wire despite not being in the best of rhythms that day.

Speaking in one of his recent interviews about that match, the former German player said, “Well, as far as I am concerned, I am yet to see a better player than Roger and I don’t think anybody else would have seen a better player than him because he’s the best till date. I admire and salute the man not only for his skills, but, his temperament as well.”

“Clearly, he was not having the greatest of days against Novak, but, his fighting spirit was phenomenal and that’s what the players coming through can learn from him. He is a fierce competitor who never gives up.”

When asked about Federer’s failure to secure victories in the title round of the tournaments of late, Becker said, “I don’t think that’s a concern for him. He doesn’t need to prove anything to the world now. He has won almost each and every trophy that a player can dream of. Not winning another one is not going to have any effect on his greatness.”

Federer has won the Grand Slam trophies more number of times than any other male tennis player so far. He has won 17 Grand Slams, 3 more than what Rafael Nadal and Pete Sampras have won.
