Winner: Wimbledon, U.S Open, Australian Open, six other titles (and counting). First men's player to win three Majors in 16 years.
Currently 69-6, this at a time when the field in men's tennis has never been deeper.
Forehand, backhand, volleys, serves, returns, slices, cutters, half-volleys, offensive lobs, defensive lobs, running passing shots. He has basically every shot in the book -- and a good many which aren't. Oh yeah, he probably moves as well as any player in tennis history, too.
Won multiple titles on every major surface.
Plays without a coach. Doesn't even have an agent.
GRACE UNDER PRESSURE
Reached nine tournament finals; took winner's trophy every time.
LEVEL OF DOMINANCE
Has won past 17 matches against other players ranked in the top 10. Sewed up year-end No. 1 ranking for 2004 by mid-September.
You will be hard-pressed to find a more genuinely humble and genial professional athlete.
Speaks four languages. Makes a mean fondue.
