8 - No of Wimbledon men's singles titles, now the most of any player in tennis history. This surpasses both the pre-Open (William Renshaw) and Open (Pete Sampras) records of seven.

15 - Years between his first slam title and his most recent. Only Ken Rosewall (20 years) has a longer span between his first and last.

5 - No of Australian Open titles - only Novak Djokovic and Roy Emerson, each with six, have won more. Also his number of US Open titles, the most of any non-American player.

35 - Age at which he won the 2017 Wimbledon title, the oldest winner of the event in the Open era. The previous record holder was Arthur Ashe in 1975, who was 31.

29 - No of grand slam finals he has reached, a stand alone record.

3 - No of times he reached all four grand slam finals in a single season (2006, 2007, 2009). Between 2005 and 2007 he reached 10 consecutive finals.

70 - No of Grand Slam tournaments he has played at, a record jointly held with Fabrice Santoro. If Federer plays at the US Open, this will be another record he holds to himself.

320 - No of matches Federer has won at grand slam tournaments.

1976 - The year the last time a player won the men's singles at Wimbledon without dropping a set (Bjorn Borg) before Federer did it in 2017.

3 - Federer's current world ranking despite winning Wimbledon - although he could, should tournaments go his way, be No 1 at the US Open.
