Tennis Channel will review the careers and impact of all-time greats Serena Williams and Roger Federer Saturday, December 10, at 8 p.m. ET. 

Honoring Legends: Roger & Serena will look at the many achievements of the unparalleled stars, who put away their racquets this year after decades of rewriting the sport’s record books. The hourlong conversation will be held by people who know Williams and Federer well. 

Caroline Wozniacki (@CaroWozniacki) is a former Australian Open champion, was one of Williams’ fiercest competitors on the court and remains one of her best friends. She will be joined by Hall of Famer Andy Roddick (@andyroddick), one of Federer’s great rivals at the top of the rankings and in the final rounds of tournaments during their playing days. Former player and coach Paul Annacone (@paul_annacone) will bring a unique perspective to the discussion. As someone who coached Federer to the 2012 Wimbledon title, he understands how the legendary player dealt with pressure and prepared for matches, as well as the star’s devotion to the sport itself and the tennis community.
