Ronnie O'Sullivan praises Roger Federer's all-time Grand Slam title record

Snooker superstar Ronnie O'Sullivan thinks that tennis superstar Roger Federer would probably win a crazy number of 40 Grand Slam titles if he came along now. Federer, 36, holds a record of 20 Grand Slam titles captured.

O'Sullivan, 42, is strongly bidding to make it past snooker legend Stephen Hendry on the all-time list with the most ranking snooker titles. Hendry, who retired in 2012, holds a record of 36 ranking titles captured. O'Sullivan, who has earned six ranking titles only this season, has a total of 33 ranking titles in his collection.

Five-time World Snooker champion O'Sullivan now targets to win the 2018 World Snooker Championship title and conclude an already great season in style. When asked how he ranks against Hendry, O'Sullivan provided a respectful answer: "It is hard because it depends what era you have done it in.

It is all right winning tournaments when the field is weak, so to compare records is difficult. "The best record would be that of Roger Federer in tennis, who has done it in the era with Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, so it makes it even more impressive.

If he came along now, he would probably win 40 Grand Slams." Also read: Janko Tipsarevic set to launch tennis academy in Belgrade
