Roger Federer knows how to win grand slam titles. We have gathered that much over the years as he has gathered 20 of the major trophies to form his own personal collection.
But the fact that he is still on the hunt for more at the age of 37-going-on-38 seems remarkable. And the fact that Rafa Nadal at 33 and Novak Djokovic at 32 are still rounding up the biggest titles in the world is something of surprise. Or it should be given there were gaggles of young men with serious talent and ambition stalking them down the walkways of Wimbledon as The Championships began.
