Federer: "The Greatest Player of All Time"

During the 2012 Australian Open an online poll of over 46,864 tennis fans voted Roger Federer the 'Greatest Ever' men's player of all time.

Federer, the 16-time Grand Slam tournament champion, was the emphatic winner of the poll as more than 71 per cent of people chose him as their greatest ever player. In total he received 33,624 votes.

A distant second, with less than a fifth of the votes of Roger, was Rafael Nadal, who has received just 5,743 votes.

Former American ace Pete Sampras was third with six per cent of the vote, and Australian legend Rod Laver, who is at Melbourne Park this year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his first Grand Slam, was fourth with just under four percent of the total count.
