Last week Roger Federer was announced as a new ambassador for Rimowa, the suitcase company that is celebrating its 120th anniversary. Commenting on his partnership with Rimowa, in an interview to CN Traveler the Basel native said: 'I felt it was a very natural fit for me, for both of us.
I’m a world traveler for 20 years now—I compare myself to a musician, but I do a world tour every year. I started in ‘96, it’s been a long long time, and suitcases, traveling, organization is just my life, you know.
I know the Arnault family very well through a partnership with Moet and Chandon, they asked me if I would be part of their first global campaign and I said absolutely, it’s a very natural fit—I love the suitcases and the brand and there’s so much potential for the brand.
Being from Switzerland, I appreciate quality and craftsmanship.' Speaking about his mindset before a trip, the 20-time Grand Slam winner said: 'It’s mental preparation. You know what, things will go wrong, and if they do, no problem, don’t dwell over it.
Priority comes with the children: make sure they’re comfortable. What we can control on our end, we try to do. Always leave on time, always give yourself a buffer. You don’t want to start missing flights and trains and trams and buses; better to take a bit of time.
And eating healthy as you go along.' ALSO READ: 'Novak Djokovic will be world No. 1 and pass Roger Federer's 20 Majors'
