(3) Roger Federer
- DOB: 08/08/1981
- Nationality: SUI
- Became Pro: 1998
- Height: 1.85
With 16 Grand Slam singles titles to his name, Federer has strong claims to be regarded as the greatest player of all time.
He is one of just seven players to have completed a career Grand Slam of all four majors, doing so at Roland Garros two years ago to widespread acclaim.
Reports of his demise have often been mentioned, particularly since that 2009 feat, but right now they hold more validity than ever.
The Swiss maestro, who turns 30 this summer, has slipped to third in the world rankings this season, with rivals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic outperforming him by some distance. At time of writing, Federer had beaten neither man in 2011.
That said, Federer remains head and shoulders above most of the players on the ATP World Tour and should be expected to go deep into the tournament once more.
However, with the standard of the top two so good at present - and clay having never been Federer's favourite surface - it's hard to see this legend adding a second French title to his CV.
