Roger Federer: 'I'm not a fan of it, not even in tennis'

The march towards the Top Ten of the young blue player Jannik Sinner continues. The young 20-year-old dominated the Antwerp tournament this week by becoming the first Italian to win four ATP tournaments in a year and returning to become one of the eligible candidates for the Finals in Turin.

From a Ranking point of view, Jannik is number 11 in the world, has reached the Best Ranking and is only 50 points behind Dominic Thiem, currently in tenth place. Entry into the Top Ten is therefore closer than ever. Meanwhile, in the Top Ten Ruud and Hurkacz have already improved their Best Ranking by overtaking Thiem.

Roger Federer also collapses, overtaken by Cameron Norrie and Denis Shapovalov and now number 15 in the world. Best Ranking also for the winner of Moscow Aslan Karatsev who makes his entry into the Top 20, Sonego also gains a position and many changes in these positions with De Minaur who loses six positions and as many recovers Marin Cilic.

Fabio Fognini, now number 36 in the world, loses two more positions. Jenson Brooksby enters the top 60 in the world, gaining 11 positions and reaching number 59 in the standings. Ten positions also for Brandon Nakashima, immediately behind Lorenzo Musetti (who loses one position) and Gianluca Mager who instead gains two.

Federer was honored with a tram

Roger Federer recently inaugurated a tram named after him in his birthplace of Basel. The tram, called the 'Federer Express' or 'FedExpress' for short, has turned quite a few heads with its sleek structure and eye-catching colors.

"Well, it was a long process," Roger Federer said. "And I have to say, it feels a bit strange to present yourself on a tram. It was therefore important for me that it is a tram for the city, not for me." Federer admitted that there were instances when he traveled black (without buying a ticket) over short distances, but stressed the importance of practicing "fairness and correct behavior".

"I have the feeling that I have very rarely driven black. I was never caught doing so," Federer said. "But I had the GA (Switzerland travelcard) for many years and therefore rarely had to buy a ticket. Basically, I'm not a fan of it, not even in tennis.

Fairness and correct behavior are extremely important to me in life. But of course, it certainly happened to me that I got on for a short distance without a ticket."
