Former Australian tennis player Sam Groth revealed that playing the Davis Cup and competing against the great Roger Federer at Wimbledon were the top moments of his career. The 30-year-old, who retired from the game after this year's Australian Open, debuted in the Davis Cup in 2014 and represented his country in at least one tie per year from 2014-2017.
The former world No. 53 featured in a total of eight Davis Cup ties -- collecting a 2-4 record in singles and a 3-3 record in doubles, respectively. Groth played at Wimbledon only three times during his career -- and his career-best result at The Championships came in 2015 when he beat American Jack Sock and fellow compatriot James Duckworth to reach round three and set up a meeting against Federer.
Groth put up a good effort but still went down to record eight-time Wimbledon champion Federer 6-4 6-4 6-7 (5) 6-2. Also read: James Ward: I've been through some dark days
