Roger Federer’s fans have opened their hearts, cameras and art books to celebrate the living legend’s 33rd birthday today, 8 August.

Using the hashtag #Roger33, fans flocked to Twitter to submit myriad photos, graphics and art of the player many call the greatest ever. Soon after his dramatic three-set win over Marin Cilic at the Rogers Cup, and shortly after midnight that rang in his birthday, Federer personally selected his favourite submission in the players' lounge in Toronto.

He chose a drawing from the United Kingdom's @Wendy_redRobin, who describes herself on Twitter as a "quiet dreamer who enjoys peaceful landscapes & wildlife. Concerned about conservation & cruelty. Love birds & corgis. Roger Federer fan."

While he was making his selection, Federer was presented with a surprise 33rd birthday tray of sweets in the players' lounge. Federer closed out his 7-6(5), 6-7(3), 6-4 win over Cilic at 11:31 p.m. and was given the tray of sweets shortly after midnight.
