This is Roger Federer: tennis god, Swiss idol and undoubtedly THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME.

I'm not making that up. Rod Laver (the man, not the stadium) said so, and you have to believe him.

The Fed disappeared from the tennis world after last year's Wimbledon because of an injury. But like the wizard that he is, he returned after six months to the Australian Open, vanquishing everyone in his path to the final.

He might be just World No.17 at the moment and we might have had our doubts about a smooth-sailing comeback, but this legend made it look so easy.

And he especially didn't need to stay awake at post-match interviews.

C'mon Jim, give the man a break! He's been doing this for 19 years and he needs some rest.

Maybe his secret weapon is the ability to pass on sleepiness to his opponent. Unfortunately for the guy on the other side, he's just not as talented as the G.O.A.T.

He's so good that even though he played with his eyes closed, and even though he's currently the lowest-ranked player left in the men's singles, he still made it all the way to his first Australian Open final since 2010.
