Roger Federer, the man, the myth, the G.O.A.T, turned 37 on Wednesday. Since 1981, the world has been graced with a man who would eventually become not just the best tennis player of all time, but a father of twins (two sets!), philanthropist, ambassador for the sport, and overall, great guy.

Although Federer won't be celebrating his birthday on the court, withdrawing from the Rogers Cup, many wished him a happy birthday in his absence.


The Australian Open went above and beyond with a 37-point compilation of Fed.


And others also posted their celebration of the Swiss. 









Federer's first tournament as a 37-year-old will be at in Cincinnati.
