I've been watching tennis for a long time and I've never seen the tennis crowd unanimously submit unyielding adulation to a player in quite the way we do for Roger Federer. I actually feel like he can divide by 0 sometimes when he hits shots that don't seem to exist.

Federer's French Open win in 2009, Andy Murray's Wimbledon win in 2013, Rod Laver's Grand Slam in 1969, or do we go back to the Suzanne Lenglen vs. Helen Wills match in 1926? There are so many great moments in tennis history.

Ozymandias

Joe Singh

An empire, more often than not, doesn't erupt so much as erode. The "Big Four", composed of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray, is no longer the force of nature it once was. But it happened quietly, subtly, the way water wears away at rock.
