Federer said: "Yesterday I was playing in Ecuador, right at zero degrees latitude, right on the Equator—the line was right on the court and you play the North vs.
the South. And, I mean, the language was a barrier—I speak French, English, and German, but not Spanish—so communicating was highly interesting, but on the tennis court everything is easier. It’s a great privilege to do that, and to have my kids grow up in that same world as we travel to Australia, America, Africa, Europe—every continent, so many countries. I just think it’s an incredible upbringing for them”.
