In a recent article by the British tabloid The Sun, Roger Federer's scream house in Switzerland's Wollerau district was revealed. The price spent? The modest sum of $ 6.5 million. The luxury residence of the champion King Roger's residence covers an area of ​​one and a half hectares and includes several swimming pools, a fully equipped gym, a spa and covered parking for the car park.

The Swiss has divided the property into two parts: in one he lives with his family, in the other his parents Robert and Lynette live there. The house has an incredible view as it overlooks Lake Zurich. It is called a glass house because of the huge windows that cover the entire structure.

The district where the property is housed, Wollerau, is populated by many sportsmen, including drivers Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen. The reason is simple. The inhabitants of this area pay just 10/12% tax, half as much as other areas of Switzerland such as Zurich, Basel and Geneva.

For most of his fans, the sight of Roger Federer lifting another Wimbledon trophy would be a dream come true. It would also be the proof they need that the Swiss extend his career beyond 2021. But not for Michael Stich; the former World No.

2 believes that a ninth Wimbledon title would serve as the perfect setting for Federer to announce his retirement.

Stich refuses to write off Roger Federer's chances of winning another Slam

"You should never write Roger Federer off because he is a player who has a gifted set of skills that help him to still play tennis that good at his age," Michael Stich said.

"But especially at Wimbledon, Roger Federer is certainly still a candidate for the title, because there he has this mental strength, because there he has the greatest joy." Many had considered Dominic Thiem's US Open triumph last year as a signal that the younger generation were ready to contend for the Majors.

Before the Austrian, the last time a male player had won their first Grand Slam was Marin Cilic in 2014. "It's up to the young generation now and they are no longer 19," Stich said. "They are all 22, 23, 26. Dominic Thiem achieved it at the US Open.

One would of course wish that they actively shape this transition, but that is looking into the future. As a spectator and fan, I naturally wish that the passing of the torch would still happen during the active time of the 'Big 3'," Stich continued.

"It's the big goal of all young players that they would like to beat a Roger Federer, a Novak Djokovic, and a Rafael Nadal in a Grand Slam final."
