Recently, on Vogue Series, 73 Questions with Joe, Roger Federer claimed that defeating his idol, Pete Sampras on Wimbledo's Centre Court, was one of his favorite memories from Wimbledon. That was the first and last time they met each other on a professional tennis court, and that match remarked the dawn of a legendary tennis player.

Phase One: Achievements

ROGER FEDERER has always made impossible look easy, and this skill was abundantly in evidence against Andy Murray on Friday. I must have watched Swiss play hundreds of matches, but I am not sure Ive ever seen him reach such giddy heights of brilliance. His serving was flawless. He barely miss groundstroke. No matter how much pace Murray injects into his shots, FEDERER would be there, cat-like, to meet them. And then, of course, there were irruptions of pure fantasy, fairy-dust sprinklings that give his performance Its aura of other-worldliness. That flick cross-Court backhand in the final game, for instance: has FEDERER ever produced more outrageous-and, for his opponent, spirit-crushing-shot? In a sense, none of this is news. FEDERER, playing magisterially, dashes nations ' hopes. Ice bucket of class deposit over drunken head of jingoism. It is not as if we have been here before. Except that Swiss turn 34 next month-age when tennis players are supposed to be capable of pulling off such feats. Not now game is so fast and demanding. Weve learn, from Agassi and others, how shattering top-level tennis is-rack of post-match recovery, those frayed tendons and aching backs. Doesnt Rafael Nadal, five years younger than FEDERER but already looking older, seem to illustrate precisely this predicament? The Spaniard undoubtedly has the will, mindset, to make it back to the top, but it is as if his body is defying him, as if those famously dodgy knees are saying: Enough already! Federers appeal, for me, has always been based on the fact that his achievements are readily comprehensible. Im not talking here simply about his ability to pull off remarkable shots. More fundamentally, I mean the way he makes it to the top when he does playing the type of tennis he does It didnt make sense. At the end of the 90s, men's tennis was caught in a cul-de-sac. Power-hitting was All rage, with its pounding baseline rallies and mammoth aces. Wimbledon authorities, concerned by the dominance of the lanky big serving brigade, took the step of slowing down the grass, but this had the effect of making the courts at SW19 resemble those at Roland Garros, and producing such unedifying spectacles as the Hewitt-Nalbandian final of 2002, when neither man serve-and-volleyed once. And then along came FEDERER, with his dreamy touch, his array of spins, his sense of always having hundred options, his style that was a mash-up of Rosewall, Borg and Sampras with just a hint of Lendl-game that shouldnt have been World-beating but was, and then some. He raises mens Tennis up again, exposing, as novelist David Foster Wallace wrote in FEDERER in 2006, its limits and possibilities. He achieve dominance not by taking tennis forward, but by taking it back. He reconciles modern games with its lighter, more elegant antecedents. This was Phase one of a career that increasingly looks as if it will end up dividing into three neat acts.

Phase Two: The Obstacles

The US Open crowd in Queens, New York, do its best to support John Isner as the American goes up against legendary Roger Federer in the fourth round Monday night at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Isner hung tough and had his chances against his favored opponent but ultimately fell to Federer for the fifth time in six meetings by a score of 7-6 7-6 7-5. Sneak Attack by Roger tactics Federer has deployed to revamp his return game at this stage of his career couldn't be utilized often against massive servers in Isner. That requires Federer to stay patient, strike with precision and avoid unforced errors, pressing Isner to match him shot for shot. As he's been known to do, Federer executed his game plan to near perfection, hitting a whopping 55 winners compared to only 16 unforced errors. Isner had solid numbers of 53 and 34 in those respective categories. Prior to the match, Federer spoke about SABR strategy and how it pertains to his impending opponent, per associate Press: Federer protected his serve with 15 aces to Isner's 17, but Isner did a commendable job of holding his own. The only break occurred in the final game as Federer sealed the deal in style: Nick McCarvel of USA Today passed along stats that show how impressive Federer was in closing out his latest adversary: of course, both players held serve all the way to the first-set tiebreaker. Isner was pushed to 30-30 on his serve, down 6-5, yet managed to hold. Seizing control right away in extra points, though, Federer struck a big backhand winner down the line that tilted the tiebreaker 3-0 in his favor: points appeared to defeat Isner's spirit during that pivotal stretch as Federer rolled en route to a 7-0 shutout. Never before had Isner been beaten in such lopsided fashion, as ESPN Tennis note: Nick Nemeroff of Tennis View Magazine highlights how rare it was for Federer to take his foot off the gas under such circumstances: adversity beset Isner when he went on serve at 1-1 in the second set, facing deuce seven times and empty all his challenges in that span. Clutch hold gave him a shot of momentum as he took the first three points on Federer's serve in the subsequent game. However, Isner couldn't convert any of three golden break opportunitiesand even had three deuce Games to get job do thereafter. As effective as Isner's serve was as equalizer, it wasn't enough to compensate for the fact that Federer was unflappable. A nice rally saw Isner bounce back from a 30-0 deficit at 5-5 to hold before getting two points off Federer in the next game, setting up yet another tiebreaker to decide the second set. The extended action went better than it do prior time, as Isner got a mini break with a backhand on the line to go up 4-2.

Phase Three: The Main Opponent

Among the elite, Federer played Rafael Nadal 6 times in 2006, and three other players 4 times. As we know, there is a five year age difference between Nadal and Federer, so while the former turned just 20 years old in May of 2006, latter turned 25 in August of that year. 2006 was just the second year of Nadals long stay in the Top-10, which continues up to this day. He break through in 2005, going from 51 spot in the Rankings all way to the number 2 slot he would occupy until the midway point of the 2008 season, when he finally took over No. 1 slot. Nadals 2005 season is astounding, given how he burst through the ranks like supernova: 79-10 match record, 11 titles, including first Grand Slam trophy and 4 Masters 1000 shields as well. Nadal also picked up 3 ATP 500 trophies, and 3 ATP 250s. He went 11-1 in Finals, taking 8 of his titles on clay, 2 on outdoor hard, and 1 on Indoor hard courts. If there is a blemish on this extraordinary season, it is that Nadal managed to go past the fourth round at just one Major that year. However, stress of an extremely busy breakthrough season saw Nadal miss the Final act, and also the 2006 Australian Open due to a foot injury that almost threatened his entire career. Thus, 2006 started in February for Nadal. True to form that has frequently seen him bounce back in style after long spells on the sidelines, Nadal won just his second event back, beating Federer in Dubai. Spring North American hard court was good, though not great, but that matter little when Nadal arrived on his beloved clay. He would go 26-0 on surface, with Dominance Ratio on that stretch of 1. 35. Compared to 2005, 2006 was not in the same vicinity as a great season for Nadal. He won 20 fewer matches, won 2 fewer Masters 1000 titles, and finished the year with just 5 titles, Four of them on clay, and only Dubai on outdoor hard. Still, Nadal improved his 2005 results at majors, by defending his French Open crown, making the Wimbledon Final for first time, while also reaching the Quarterfinals of the US Open. In terms of statistical measure of how Nadal was playing points that year, his Dominance Ratio in 2006 was 1. 24, which was a step down from his 1. 33 from the previous year. Not only that, but Nadals 2006 Dominance Ratio would be the lowest of his post-breakthrough career until the 2015 season. With all of that being say, Nadal surely excelled at beating Roger Federer in 2006, even though it was arguably Federers best season ever. After meeting his nemesis just twice in 2005, Nadal would get 3 more wins over Federer as a teenager before nabbing a fourth as a 20 year old in Paris.

Phase Four: Deep Statistical Dive

Roger right himself when mens tour moved to grass, winning at Halle, one of the tune-up events for Wimbledon. He was firing on all cyliders at All-England Club, and for a change, things seemed to be breaking his way. Co-favorites Hewitt and Agassi lost early, which means the spotlight was retrain on Roger and Roddick, who were both unbeaten on grass in 03 as they headed for their semifinal clash. It was all Roger could do to get on court for this match after straining his back during his fourth-round victory over Feliciano Lopez. Deep massage, pain pills, and a shot at his first Grand Slam kept him going. The day before the Federer-Roddick match, tennis legends John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Martina Navratilova and Ilie Nastase author Open letter to ITF claiming that serve-and-volley tennis was dead, and that new rules needed to be implemented to save the beauty of tennis. Roger answered their charges in eye-Opening fashion, demolishing Roddick in straight sets with a masterful display of all-court tennis. Roddick played well and served bullets, but had no answer for Game Roger brought to centre court that day. In final, Roger faced only guy on tour who served harder than Roddicks, Mark Philippoussis. The Aussie held serve most of the time, but was overmatched by Roger once points went into play. The final score of 7-6 6-2 7-6 makes the match look closer than it was. At no point was the outcome really in doubt. With Grand Slam monkey off his back, Roger set his sights on 1 ranking. Roger reached the final in his next tournament, in Gstaad, but lost to Jiri Novak, ending his unbeaten streak at 15 matches. At the US Open, he lost in the fourth round to David Nalbandian. So much for 1. After the tournament, Roger sucked it up for what he knew would be an emotional meeting with the Australian Davis Cup team. The winner of this competition would not only get to the finals, it would claim the first Carter Cup, named in honor of Roger's old coach. Anytime Switzerland and Australia compete in tennis, trophy is on line. Roger won his first match, but by by the time he faced Hewitt, Swiss were down 2-1. He played inspiring tennis and take first two sets. Up 5-3 in the third set, Roger failed to chase after pretty shot by Hewitt that he assumed was going out. This one point turned the match around, giving Hewitt extra fire in his belly andRoger too much to think about. He lost the third and fourth sets, and then Hewitt ran him off court in the fifth, 6-1. Roger rushed to the locker room sobbing. Carters ' parents meet with Roger privately after the match and try to console him. They tell him that in Rogers Tennis, they saw their son living onthat when they pulled for Roger, it was like pulling for Peter.
