He reached the Wimbledon final in successive years in 2000 and 2001, losing to Pete Sampras and Goran Ivanisevic.
And his success on grass came after winning the US Open in 1997 and 1998, leading him to rank first in the world in July 1999.
He became a household name after his first US Open win and became part of an elite club that includes David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

The 50-year-old appeared on the front cover of GQ magazine and became an underwear model for Bonds.
