Tim Henman has hailed Roger Federer as the greatest player of all time after his latest Wimbledon triumph and believes the Swiss is the overwhelming favourite to win the US Open.

Federer recently won his 8th Wimbledon and 19th Grand Slam overall with Rafael Nadal at second with 15 Grand Slams. Henman further expressed that though picking and comparing players from different eras is tough, it would be tricky to pick anyone over the Swiss Maestro.

And while former world No. 4 Henman believes it’s hard to compare the best players of different generations, he can’t look past Federer as the greatest of all time.‘In my opinion, he is [the best], but I think it’s difficult to compare generations,’ Henman told Sky Sports.

‘You think of Rod Laver who won all four majors in a calendar year – he did that twice.

‘And for seven years of his professional career he didn’t play Grand Slams because he turned professional. So how many Majors would he have won?

‘And then you reflect, the four Grand Slams were on grass when he played. So if you had (Pete) Sampras playing three of the four Grand Slams on grass, I’m sure he would’ve won a lot more.

‘But right now it does come down to a numbers game and Federer’s won 19 Grand Slams – that’s the most of any player, any male player, so he would go down as my best of all time.’

Even with Federer turning 36 ahead of the US Open, Henman views him as the man to beat at Flushing Meadows and believes he can add a 20th Slam to his collection.
