Same. And if he does come across as smug sometimes (I never really thought that), 20 Grand Slams does rather suggest a degree of supremacy that's hard to argue. Ignoring the French, which the steroid ape has had on lock for as long as anyone cares to remember, Federer has won something like 50 % of the remaining Slams since he won his first. That is an astonishing statistic, given how long he's been playing.

Our new number 1. Edmund is a break up against Novak. Though I’ve not watched it I believe Federer has effortlessly moved into the thrird round at Wimbledon.

UNlike Andy he doesn’t blow it when serving for the set. Edmund has a future.

Federer is smug because he’s the best human to ever play tennis. I’d be fairly pleased with myself, too.

Federer is my favourite player in the present time, but I do admire the two on centre court playing now.

So where's the outrage about the wheelchair players not getting paid as much as the able-bodied competitors? The women screeched for decades about how they should get equal money, despite playing 3-set tennis. Why aren't the wheelchair players getting paid the same, too?

The wheelchair game, IMO, is better viewing anyway, and not just because they don't insist on screaming every shot or taking a couple of minutes to fart around before serving. The co-ordination to move the chair and set up shots defies belief.
