Roger Federer has won an all-time record 20 Grand Slam Titles from 2003–18 including an all-time record of 8 Wimbledon Titles.

Roger Federer has won an all-time record 20 Grand Slam singles titles and has reached a record 30 Grand Slam finals (10 consecutive, and another 8 consecutive – the two longest streaks in history), 43 semi-final appearances, and 53 quarter-final appearances. He is one of eight men to have won a career Grand Slam (winning all four Grand Slams at least once) and one of four players to have won a career Grand Slam on three different surfaces, hard, grass and clay courts. Federer has won 8 Wimbledon titles, an all-time record. He is one of only two male players to have reached 11 finals at a single Grand Slam event (Wimbledon). He is the only male player to win 2 different Grand Slam tournaments at least 6 times (Australian Open, Wimbledon) and the only player to win 3 different tournaments at least 5 times (Wimbledon, Australian Open, US Open). He is the only player to win two Grand Slams five consecutive times at Wimbledon from 2003–07 and the US Open from 2004–08. Federer has spent 310 weeks as the No. 1 ranked player in the world (ranked No. 1 for 237 consecutive weeks), the most of any men's tennis player since the inception of these rankings in 1973.

Federer has won an all-time record 11 hard court Grand Slam titles and is the only player to achieve such a feat in the Open Era. He is the only player to win 5 consecutive titles at the US Open (2004–08). Federer has won an all-time record of 67 hard court titles. Federer has won an all-time record 7 Cincinnati Masters 1000 titles. He has also won an all-time record 8 Swiss Indoors titles and has reached the final at the Swiss Indoors for a total of 13 years (2000–01, 2006–15, 2017) and 10 consecutive years (2006–15) and is the only player to ever achieve both feats in the Open Era in any tournament. Federer has also registered a 56-match win streak on hard courts which is the all-time record.

Federer's success does not hold strictly to hard courts, his most successful surface is grass where he has won an Open Era record 18 grass court titles including an all-time record 9 Halle Open titles and an all-time record of 8 Wimbledon titles. He reached an all-time record 7 consecutive Wimbledon finals from 2003–09 and is the only player to achieve this feat in the Open Era. Federer has the longest grass court winning streak in the Open Era as he won 65 consecutive matches on grass from 2003 to 2008 where he was beaten by Rafael Nadal in the 2008 Wimbledon final. Due to his success on grass courts, Federer is considered by some as the greatest grass court player of the Open Era having surpassed the likes of Pete Sampras (winner of 7 Wimbledon trophies and undefeated in finals), Björn Borg (won 5 consecutive Wimbledon finals), Boris Becker, John McEnroe, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal due to his consistent record on grass and the number of titles/finals he has accrued.

Alongside his record on grass, Federer has been successful on clay courts. He has reached 5 French Open finals (being beaten in 4 finals by Rafael Nadal, who is classed by many as the greatest clay court player ever), and has won 6 Masters 1000 titles on clay from 16 finals. Federer won his first and only French Open title in 2009 when he also won Wimbledon thus achieving the "Channel Slam" alongside Rod Laver, Borg and Nadal. Federer has won 11 clay court titles from 26 finals (11 of his clay court finals losses have been to Nadal, against 2 wins). His consistency in his prime years on clay was rivaled only by Rafael Nadal, and Federer was widely viewed as the second greatest clay court player during Nadal's era in the French Open from 2005–11 when he achieved 1 quarterfinal, 1 semifinal, 5 runners-up, and 1 title (he succumbed only to Nadal in the semifinal and finals he lost).

Federer is the only player to register at least ten titles on clay, grass and hard courts, he has 67 hard court titles, 18 grass court titles, and 11 clay court titles. In his prime years, he won an unparalleled 11 Grand Slam tournaments (3 Australian Open titles, 4 Wimbledon titles and 4 US Open titles) of a possible 16 events from 2004 to 2007. He reached the finals of all four Grand Slam tournaments in the same calendar year in 2006, 2007, and 2009, joining Rod Laver (1969) and later joined by Novak Djokovic (2015). In the World Tour Finals, Federer has won 6 titles from 10 finals, both Open Era records, at the prestigious year-end tournament featuring the top-8 players in the year-end rankings. He has qualified for the tournament a record 14 consecutive years from 2002 through 2015. Following an injury enforced absence for 6 months in 2016, in which Federer did not play on the tour after his defeat in the semifinal of Wimbledon, he qualified second to Rafael Nadal for the ATP Finals for a record 15th time in 2017. It would be the first time Federer had won multiple Grand Slam titles since 2009.

Federer was selected by fellow players as winner of the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award 13 times (2004–2009, 2011–2017). Fans voted for him to receive the ATPWorldTour.com Fans' Favourite Award for a 15th straight year (2003–2017). Since his Grand Slam winning debut in 2003, Federer has won a record total of 36 ATP World Tour Awards.
