Roger Federer and his agent Tony Godsick started negotiations with Alexander Zverev to bring the German player in their Team8 Management company during the 2018 Halle Open. The negotiations got deeper during the Laver Cup in Chicago.
After the ATP Finals, Zverev and Apey were no longer in bad terms. In the past Federer also tried to meet Nick Kyrgios's mother in order to bring him to Team 8. But he failed. The legal dispute between Zverev and Apey could end in autumn 2020 in Great Britain.
Federer was asked what makes a caravan trip a good one. The Swiss replied: "Good weather. I don't know, rain is not the fun bit. I think the people you're with. We had another family traveling with us in another caravan.
Then my full family, four kids and Mirka. We had a blast. But we were happy to come home again, as well. I was beat after Wimbledon and the caravan trip. I needed a vacation after the vacation!”
