Roger Federer shared an emotional tribute to all the coaches from over the years after reclaiming the numero uno position in the latest ATP rankings.

Federer, 36, became the oldest player in the history of sport to be ranked No. 1 – a feat he achieved after winning his 97th singles title in Rotterdam over the weekend.

And the Swiss maestro made sure he thanked his teachers, taking to his official Instagram to post a collage of pictures to his 4.6 million followers.

“Could never have been the oldest #1 without my team. Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way,” the 20-time Grand Slam champion captioned the collage, which also had an image of his family.

Federer will now look to consolidate the lead over arch-rival and current No. 2 Rafael Nadal of Spain when the two participate at the Indian Wells Masters, scheduled to begin on March 5.
