GQ Magazine Is Getting Trolled For Calling Roger Federer "The Greatest Tennis Player Of All Time"

Weird, they misspelled Serena Williams.

Posted on March 21, 2017, at 12:51 p.m. ET

On Tuesday, GQ re-promoted their latest feature on Roger Federer on Twitter. This time they kept him nameless, and simply hailed him "the greatest tennis player of all time."

We caught up with the greatest tennis player of all time

Federer was also dubbed "the greatest tennis player of all time" in the actual feature.

People online were pretty confused by the handed title. And the photo that was accompanying it.

This looks nothing like Serena Williams.

Many presumed if there were a GOAT tennis title, it'd be to Serena Williams — aka the winningest Grand Slam title holder in the Open era, male or female.

But this isn't Serena Williams

That ain't Serena, tho

Not to undermine the undisputed GREAT talents of Federer, but people were seriously perplexed, since Williams has proven her ranking.

Listen, no disrespect to Federer, but this is some bullshit. We ALL know that Serena is the greatest tennis player…

Some decided to help the publication with some light editing: Perhaps they left the word "male" out in the tweet?

@GQMagazine you left out the word "male" in front of "tennis player"

Or needed to quickly add "...who is not named Serena Williams" to the end.

Not Named Serena Williams

Folks trolled hard. "Did Serena transition into a white man??"

@GQMagazine did Serena transition into a white man??

"...Is [Federer] standing in front of Serena orrrrrrrrrrrrr...??"

...Is he standing in front of Serena orrrrrrrrrrrrr...??

"You did? That's wonderful. How's Serena doing?"

You did? That's wonderful. How's Serena doing?

Or maybe GQ isn't wrong, and it's just a bad photo of Williams.

Man Serena looks like shit in this picture

Wow this is not a good photo of Serena Williams at all

Serena looks different in a Black and white pic... 😕

Serena sweetie you look....bad.

But idk, guys. She seldomly takes a bad photo. We'll further investigate.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to GQ.

UPDATE: The Fader has taken their position. They re-shared their own cover story of Williams, tweeting "We caught up with the greatest tennis player of all time."
