    Is it his 4 years of dominance? nu uh
    Masters series wins? not quite
    Is it his 14 GS? no
    His career slam? nope but close

    It's his ability to attract people and cause peace...people who don't even watch Federer matches are in his threads, any and all threads generally become about him positive or negative. Everyone spends good amounts of time analyzing his words and style of dress.

    Most importantly, is that despite the 4 way rivalry within the top 4 (they all played each other AT LEAST once) all Murray, Djoker and Nadal fans can unify in an effort against him.

    I don't about you but if i have that many people exerting the energy it takes to hate me when they've never met me i'd say i was doing something.:)

    it's easier to hate an opponent than admitting his strengh as a fan...
    as a player you won't do that because it does not help your game.

    Non necessarily, i pretty much like all of the top 4, if this was the case i'd hate Murray,Djok and Nadal since they've been spanking Fed all year long until the turning point in Madrid.

    the real reason why Roger Federer is amazing (to me) is:
    he has won 14 grand slam titles with a pretty small headsize racquet :)

    In terms of tennis popularity worldwide (and please don't anyone post meaningless online follower #'s), the difference between Nadal/Djoko and the rest of the field is the difference between Federer and Nadal/Djoko.

    That is simply myth by Federer fans to make like Federer peerless or something. Now Federer far more popular than Djokovic, 0 doubt of it. But Nadal different story. He' as popular as Federer.

    No, just like you have 0 doubt that Federer is more popular than Djoko, there is 0 doubt that Federer is more loved than Nadal.

    I'm mostly amazed by the way he hits balls on the rise consistently. never seen a player who can hit baseline half volley winners consistently.
