Roger Federer decided to auction off various memories that he accumulated throughout his career, such as the outfit he used in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, as well as rackets, jackets or sneakers that he used in the different scenarios in which he played.
All this for charitable purposes, and the fact is that the Swiss already has raised almost 4 million euros, which will be allocated to programs to support education in Africa and also in Switzerland. "We began to collect objects that have accompanied me throughout my career, because we thought that maybe one day we could make sense of them," Federer acknowledged.
Alexander Zverev comments on Roger Federer
The ultimate ‘G.O.A.T’ debate is a never-ending conversation for fans and followers of the big 3, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic. However, the youngsters already have a favorite and it’s no surprise who they love the most.
From Canadian star Denis Shapovalov to the 2021 Wimbledon Championship finalist, Matteo Berrettini, all hail the legendary Roger Federer to be their idol. In a newly emerged video, Denis Shapovalov recalls idolizing Federer, as he watched him play growing up.
He said, “He was always my hero and I kind of wanted to match my game to his”. Germany’s golden boy, Alexander Zverev, was all hearts for the Swiss legend too. He said,” How he was playing the game it looked so easy in a way, it looked like he was really playing the ball.
He was the best player to watch”. Roger Federer made an emphatic return to the court after an unfortunate injury saw him rest out for an entire year. However, he was back to his very best at the 2021 Wimbledon Championship, garnering world attention with every sublime backhand.
Regardless, his return was cut short after a certain Hubert Hurkacz outplayed the legend in the quarter-final round. Devastated, Roger left the center court, as fans watched in utter shock. In a recent interview, Daniil Medvedev faced a really strange question.
He was asked that how he felt when he didn’t get to play many matches on the Center Court at the Wimbledon Championships 2021 despite being the World No. 2 player. Interestingly, the Russian came up with a pretty impressive response.
“In fact, at Wimbledon, there was a somewhat logical story. There should have been two men when the top of the bracket played – they were Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. Accordingly, when it was our day, there was supposed to be the only men’s match.
The organizers put Roger Federer there and this is understandable. Every year can be the last for him in his career, he is a legend of sports, so everything is fine here,” said Medvedev in the interview.
