Despite being close to 40, Roger Federer still manages to be competitive at the highest level. In addition to being one of the most successful athletes in history, the Basel phenomenon is also the one with the greatest media and advertising appeal.
Recently, the former World number 1 was ranked by Forbes as the highest paid sportsman in the world at $ 106 million. The 39-year-old Swiss only participated in the Australian Open this year, where he almost miraculously reached the semi-finals after risking a lot against John Millman and Tennys Sandgren.
Also thanks to a groin injury remedied in the quarterfinals, the 20-time Grand Slam champion was unable to play his cards to the end against Novak Djokovic. Roger then went to South Africa for a historic charity exhibition with his eternal rival Rafael Nadal, which was also useful for establishing a new audience record for a tennis match.
To the chagrin of his countless fans, Federer underwent two surgeries on his right knee to resolve an injury that had been tormenting him for a long time. The eight-time Grand Slam champion chose not to force his recovery time, preferring to close 2020 early to focus all his energy on 2021.
'King Roger' starred in a commercial for Lindt Chocolate in the recent period, during which he was asked to reveal the secret of his straight.

Midway through the tour, Roger Federer's host is tempted to ask him a 'personal' question.
He hesitates before going ahead and asking: "I'm a pretty good tennis player myself. I'm just wondering, what is the secret of that forehand?" Roger Federer, who is known for his sense of humor, doesn't bat an eyelid before replying: "A bad backhand!" Later in the commercial, Roger Federer is seen playing around in front of the giant tower of chocolate as the maitre chocolatier clicks some pictures for the 39-year-old to show to his children.
Now, Federer has shown off his dancing moves and his vocals in a new ad for Swiss communication company Sunrise. Federer, to the tune of ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’ by the Beatles, can be seen singing and dancing around a room to the famous British song.
He is quickly joined by a group of singers where he leads them in dance and song. Fans couldn’t get enough of Federer showcasing his admirable singing ability.
