Tennis superstar Roger Federer is one of the most decorated personalities when it comes to promoting brands. Over the years, he has partnered with companies such as Mercedes Benz, Lindt, Moet & Chandon, and many more. However, one of the most prominent companies is Rolex.
Roger Federer has been part of the Rolex family for over a decade. Over the years, he has sported various exquisite timekeeper designs. Rolex and tennis go hand in hand, most of the Grand Slam events along with the other mainstream events are sponsored by this latest prestigious watch company.
The Swiss ace recently wore the "Oyster Perpetual" from the latest Rolex collection. The watch has a deep forest green dial. It is one of the last pieces but the inspiration goes back to history. He wore the watch until the first point of the match began and returned to his conclusion.
The colorful new Oyster Perpetual that the Swiss ace has been wearing is a return to a famous Rolex watch collection dating back to the 1980s. This watch and the personality of the 20 Grand Slam winner go hand in hand. Coming to tennis, Federer has not performed up to his usual standards.
It has a lot to do with the two knee surgeries he underwent the year before.
Rusedski recalls Roger Federer's 2017 season
Former US Open finalist Greg Rusedski recently gave his thoughts on Roger Federer's knee setback that forced him to withdraw from the Tokyo Olympics this month.
"Knowing Roger from quite a young age, around 16-17 years of age, I don’t think he will be satisfied just showing up without really believing he can win”. Rusedski also reminisced about Roger Federer's 2017 season, which saw the Swiss make a winning return to the sport after a serious knee injury.
“Roger Federer has defied logic, he has defied time, he created a new game in 2017,” Rusedski said. “There is not more he can create anymore because it was all based on movement, taking the ball early coming forward”.
Due to the ongoing pandemic outbreak, Tokyo Olympics has many rigid restrictions. Therefore, numerous top players have taken the difficult decision to withdraw, including Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. However, determined on his path to Golden Slam, Novak Djokovic will travel to Japan and try for the gold medal.
“Cannot disappoint my little friend Koujirou. I booked my flight for Tokyo and will proudly be joining #TeamSerbia for the Olympics,” Djokovic wrote on Twitter.
