Player Profile

Refreshed after his Middle East break, Roger Federer arrives in London attempting to make history, once again.

The five-time Tour finals winner will surpass Ivan Lendl as the most successful player in the tournament's 40-year history with victory in the English capital.

And the Swiss sensation will have extra motivation to complete that feat following his shock US Open final defeat to Juan Martin Del Potro in New York.

That abberation aside, it has been another year to remember for Federer, the 28-year-old breaking Pete Sampras' all-time record of 14 Grand Slam titles with success at the French Open and Wimbledon.

He has also become the father of twins and seems as focused as ever to add to his already glistening trophy cabinet.

A player with every shot in the book, Federer will be favourite once again to reign supreme.
