January 28/2018

Roger Federer was overcome with emotion as he concluded his remarks to the Rod Laver Arena crowd following his Australian Open victory over Marin Cilic.

The 20-time major winner had difficulty finishing his speech, tearing up as he thanked his team and then starting to cry as the crowd gave him a lengthy standing ovation. Federer then blew kisses to the crowd as the Australian tennis great Rod Laver marked the moment by taking a photo with his mobile phone in the stands.

After Federer posed for photos with the trophy, he walked over to his wife Mirka in the stands and grabbed her hand while she blew him a kiss.

Federer said winning the title was "absolutely a dream come true." He says, "The fairytale continues for us, for me, after the great year I had last year, it's incredible."

My favorite tennis player of all time. Sampras comes close. The level of class and humility of this man is unmatched.

I don't think I see enough of him playing in recent years so I probably can't call him my favorite....but clearly unmatched in style and grace , as you said....Sampras deserves mention.
I grew up watching the bad boys of tennis....Borg, Mcenroe, BJK...etc.
Ego's!! Plenty of style and short on grace :/
