Federer was born in Basel, Switzerland, on August 8, 1981. His Afrikaner mother, Lynette Federer (née Durand), is from Kempton Park, Gauteng, in South Africa, and his Swiss-German father, Robert Federer, is from Berneck in the Canton of St. Gallen. His older sister Diana, who is also the mother of twins, is his only sibling. Federer is a dual nationality of Switzerland and South Africa because his mother is a South African. He was raised in the border towns of Birsfelden, Riehen, and Münchenstein and is proficient in Swiss German, Standard German, English, and French. He also has a working knowledge of Italian and Swedish. His mother tongue is Swiss German. The Swiss Indoors, a competition in his native Basel, employed him as a ball boy.

Roger Federer has to perform military service in the Swiss Armed Forces, just like every other male citizen of Switzerland. He was, however, declared unsuitable in 2003 and was hence exempt from his military commitment. Instead, he was forced to join the civil protection force and make a payment equal to 3% of his taxable income. He grew up rooting for both FC Basel and the Swiss national side. He also attributes the variety of sports he participated in as a kid, such as a basketball and a badminton, to helping him develop his hand-eye coordination.

Roger Federer's Affair and Relationship with wife Mirka

The young couple actually ran into each other at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Unbelievably, Mirka was engaged to a wealthy Arab, according to the Italian magazine Gioia, but it didn't take long for her to start dating the 20-time Grand Slam champion. Federer once said that on the final day of the Sydney Olympics in 2000, the two did in fact share their first kiss.

In April 2009, the tennis lovers exchanged vows in a private ceremony at Basel's Wenenhof Villa, Federer's hometown. On his website, the tennis champion of the globe revealed that the couple wed in front of a modest gathering of dear friends and family.

A month before their wedding, the couple made the first-child announcement.

They had no idea that 2009 would see the birth of Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, identical twin girls.

Then, in 2014, Leo and Lennard, two gorgeous twin boys, were born.

When pictures of the seven-year-old girls and three-year-old boys supporting their father appeared on big-screen media in 2017, the identical twin sets won the hearts of the entire globe.

The two sets of twins, who were each decked out in matching outfits and making goofy faces for the cameras, created a tremendous amount of social media attention, and curiosity about this fairytale family continues to this day.

 

Roger Federer's Social Work

Roger Federer started the Roger Federer Foundation in 2003 to support underprivileged kids and increase their access to sports and education. He has been supporting the South Africa-Swiss organization IMBEWU since May 2004, claiming his strong ties to South Africa (his mother is from that country), which helps kids better connect to sports as well as social and health awareness. He traveled to South Africa in 2005 to meet the kids who had benefited from his assistance. He also auctioned off his US Open-winning racquet in 2005 to raise money for Hurricane Katrina victims.

Roger Federer organized the Rally for Relief show at the 2005 Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells alongside a number of top athletes from the ATP and WTA tours, with all earnings going to the tsunami victims affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. He traveled to Tamil Nadu in December 2006, one of the tsunami's worst-affected regions in India. He was chosen by UNICEF as a Goodwill Ambassador in April 2006, and he has since participated in UNICEF public service announcements to increase AIDS awareness.

Federer organized a partnership with other elite tennis players for a special charity event during the 2010 Australian Open dubbed Hit for Haiti, with all earnings going to Haiti earthquake victims. This was done in reaction to the 2010 Haiti earthquake. During the 2010 Indian Wells Masters, he took part in a charity exhibition that raised $1 million.

 

Roger Federer's playing style, Strength, and Weaknesses

roger federer style

Roger Federer is a competitive player who enjoys taking the ball up and finishing points quickly. Although he began as an all-court player, winning his first Wimbledon championship primarily from the forecourt, he eventually moved back to the baseline as the game became less suited to full-on attack. Federer's forehand is his strongest wing, and he uses an unusual grip to give it a tremendous amount of topspin. One of the most devastating tools ever used on a tennis court, it is regarded as one of the best forehands in tennis history.

Federer's one-handed backhand, which is well known for its grace and beauty, has been made vulnerable by opponents who attack it aggressively with spin and bounce, most notably Rafael Nadal. The worst aspect of his game has improved over time, most notably when he won the 2017 Australian Open with a barrage of backhand winners. Federer has a valuable tool in his arsenal: the serve. Federer's deception, accuracy, and variety allow him to win a ton of free points in practically every match, even though he can't create the same amount of pace as the heavyweights of the sport like John Isner and Ivo Karlovic.

Over time, Federer's defensive skills have been worse. When he was at his best, he was incredibly swift around the court, but lately, he has depended more on reflexes and anticipation to fend off bigger opponents.

 

Roger Federer's Matches

roger federer career

In a time of intense competition, Roger Federer won an almost unimaginable number of major slams. He was the first player to win 20 grand slam titles, and aside from Novak Djokovic, he has held the top spot in the ATP rankings for the longest period of time. Federer has also participated in 31 major finals, including a record 10 consecutively (one more than Djokovic).

Roger Federer has received the Sportsmanship Award from his peers a record 13 times, and he has won the ATP Fan's Favorite for 17 continuous years. He has received the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year award a record five times, including four in a row from 2005 to 2008. He has also been named the ATP Player of the Year, the ITF World Champion, and the ITF World Champion five times. Additionally, he is the only individual to have received the BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year honor four times.

Federer held the top spot for 237 straight weeks during his 310-week reign.

He competed against Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic, among other greats of his era and those that came before. Federer has achieved numerous records while competing against some of the greatest players of all time, including the oldest world No. 1 record at age 36.

 

In addition to Wimbledon, which is synonymous with him and where he won his first grand slam, he has also won the Australian Open six times, the French Open once, the US Open five times, and a record eight times at the French Open.
Federer dominated the Open Era like never before during the time he held the No. 1 ranking, which he did from 2004 through 2008. He won at least one grand slam title every year up until the conclusion of his rule, including three in each of the years 2004–2006–2007. His seasons as the top player in the world were among the most dominant in history, and he was without a doubt the best player in the world.
Roger Federer normally serves at a speed of 200 km/h (125 mph), but he is capable of serving at 220 km/h (137 mph). Federer is skilled at serving and volleying and frequently used this move in his early career.

 

Early Tennis Career

Roger Federer lost his debut professional match against Lucas Arnold Ker at Gstaad, Switzerland. Although he had previously made a name for himself in amateur tennis, he needed time and experience to duplicate the success in the professional game. In 1998, Federer won the boys' singles and doubles titles at Wimbledon. Later that year, he went pro. He made headlines in 2001 at Wimbledon when he defeated Pete Sampras, the reigning singles champion, in the fourth round. After a productive season on grass, Federer won Wimbledon in 2003 to become the first Swiss person to win a Grand Slam championship.

 

Roger Federer’s Career Bad Performance Phases

Roger Federer had two Grand Slam title losses to start the year 2005 off poorly. He quickly recovered, though, and went on to win the US Open and Wimbledon. In addition, he continued his winning streak at the two ATP 500 series and four ATP Masters Series 1000 events, which helped him hold onto the top spot.

Federer's career struggled in 2008, losing to rival Rafael Nadal at the French Open and Wimbledon as well as to another rising talent, Novak Djokovic, at the Australian Open. Also falling to No. 2 for the first time in four years was his ranking. His career graph continued to decline as he failed to win any titles at any of the four Grand Slams in 2011, which was the first time since 2002. He was removed from the top 3, which caused his world rating to steadily decline.

2013 saw Roger Federer's unexpected exit from Wimbledon. He was eliminated from the singles competition in the second round by 116th-ranked Sergiy Stakhovsky. Federer once again had trouble on the court at the U.S. Open. In the fourth round, Tommy Robredo of Spain defeated him, defeating him in three sets. Federer acknowledged that he struggled throughout, which is not very satisfying, according to the U.S. Open website. He complained that he missed so many opportunities and that his rhythm was off during the game, his confidence seemed to have been dented by the defeat.

Roger Federer faced up against Djokovic in the 2014 Wimbledon men's singles final but was defeated in five sets to miss out on a chance to win a record-tying eighth title on the illustrious grass courts.

Then, he was defeated by hard-hitting Croatian Marin Cilic in the U.S. Open semifinals, and Cilic went on to win the match.

 

Roger Federer lost to Italian Andreas Seppi in the third round of the Australian Open to start the 2015 season off on a depressing note. He defeated Djokovic to win the Dubai Championships in February, demonstrating that he could still fight with the sport's top players. However, his attempt to capture a second French Open title was dashed when he lost to fellow countryman Stan Wawrinka in the quarterfinals.

A month later, Roger Federer stormed through the Wimbledon tournament, but he lost to Djokovic in the championship match, prolonging his quest for a record-tying eighth victory by at least another year. The same thing happened to Federer at the U.S. Open: despite a strong performance that hinted career Grand Slam victory No. 18 was imminent, Federer was unable to defeat top-ranked Djokovic in an intense final.

Roger Federer missed the Wimbledon finals in July 2016 as well. Milos Raonic defeated him in five sets, making history by becoming the first Canadian man to go to a grand slam final. Federer had earlier that year lost the Australian Open to Novak Djokovic, and following their match, Federer injured his knee. Roger Federer experienced back issues later in the season, and in order to prevent additional injury, he was forced to retire from the French Open.

 

Roger Federer's Career Best Performance Phases

With a No. 2 world ranking at the start of 2004, Roger Federer went on to win the Australian Open, U.S. Open, ATP Masters, and the Wimbledon singles championship. At the beginning of 2005, he was ranked first, and that year, he won the U.S. Open and Wimbledon singles for the third time in a row. He won three Grand Slam singles titles in 2006, demonstrating that his skill level in the sport was higher than that of his rivals. He also won one of the two ATP 500 series and four of the ATP Masters Series 1000 finals. He completed a hat-trick by regaining the top spot in the world for the third time.

In terms of his Grand Slam performance, 2007 was a carbon copy of 2006, as he again reached the finals of all four and ultimately took home three victories. He won one ATP 500 series match while taking home five ATP Masters Series 1000 victories. He achieved No. 1 for a fourth time, effectively controlling the match. In 2008, Federer won his sixth U.S. Open match by defeating Scottish star Andy Murray.

For the Swiss star, 2009 was a season to remember. In addition to defeating Andy Roddick in a thrilling Wimbledon final to surpass Pete Sampras for a record 15th Grand Slam singles victory, he overcame Robin Soderling to win the French Open and complete his career Grand Slam. In addition, Federer made it all the way to the championship matches of the other two major competitions, losing in five sets to Nadal in the Australian Open and Juan Martin del Potro at the U.S. Open. His outstanding all-around performance allowed him to reclaim the top spot in the world.

Roger Federer defeated David Ferrer to get to the year-end championships final for the seventh time, which was his 100th final, in 2011, reviving his waning career. He was able to regain the third spot because of his ATP Tour performance.

When he overcame Andy Murray in 2012 to win a record-tying seventh Wimbledon singles title, Federer's career took off once more. The 30-year-old tennis pro's triumph assisted in his return to the top spot, and by the end of the year, he had set a record by spending a total of 302 weeks at the top of the world rankings. In January 2017, Federer participated in the Australian Open and the Hopman Cup. He defeated top-10 players Kei Nishikori and Tomá Berdych at the Australian Open to advance to the quarterfinals, where he defeated Mischa Zverev and became the oldest player to participate in a grand slam semifinal since Jimmy Connors in 1991.

 

Roger Federer Olympics

In Sydney in 2000, Federer competed in the singles event to make his Olympic debut. He shocked many by making it to the semifinals, but Federer left Sydney empty-handed after losing to Tommy Haas and Arnaud Di Pasquale in the bronze medal match. Roger Federer was the overwhelming favorite in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens after winning the Australian Open and Wimbledon and rising to the top of the global rankings earlier in the year. Tomá Berdych, 18, defeated him in the second round, though. He and his countryman Yves Allegro suffered defeat in the second round of doubles.

Roger Federer was once again the top seed and favorite in the singles competition at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, however, he was defeated by James Blake in the quarterfinals. He experienced greater success in men's doubles, as he and fellow countryman Stan Wawrinka captured the gold medal by defeating Simon Aspelin and Thomas Johansson of Sweden. Roger Federer carried the Swiss flag during the opening ceremony at both the Olympics in Athens and Beijing. In London 2012, Federer again entered as the top seed and defeated Andy Murray in the final to win his first singles medal, a silver. He and Wawrinka were unable to defend their doubles gold title after falling to Israel's Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram in the second round.

After taking the remainder of the season off after Wimbledon to recover from a knee injury, Federer did not participate in the 2016 Rio Olympics. In a similar vein, Federer declined to take part in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics due to a setback in his knee surgery recovery.

 

Roger Federer’s Best Competitions

Roger Federer dominated men's tennis for the past two decades while competing against 21-time grand slam champion Novak Djokovic and 22-time grand slam winner Rafael Nadal. 

The most matches Federer has played against any opponent are the 35 he played with Djokovic in the 2010s decade. The Swiss master has suffered 22 losses, including 12 in tournament finals, which is the most of any player during this decade.

Nadal has defeated Federer 11 times, which is the second-highest number of opponents Federer has lost to in this decade. Nadal is one of only six players with a winning head-to-head record versus Federer.

 

Roger Federer Injuries

Roger Federer injured his knee in 2016, the day after losing to Djokovic. He underwent arthroscopic surgery in early February to repair a torn meniscus. He had to leave Miami due to a stomach virus, extending his time on the sidelines. He was hurt during practice in Madrid, withdrew soon after, due to a back problem. He lost in the semifinals of Stuttgart and Halle while playing on grass because he was still dealing with reoccurring knee discomfort. He tied Jimmy Connors' all-time records of eleven Wimbledon semifinal appearances and 84 victories on July 6 when he rallied from two sets down to overcome Marin Cilic in the 2016 Wimbledon quarterfinals in five sets.

Roger Federer declared on July 26 that in order to fully heal from his knee injury, he would miss the 2016 Summer Olympics and the rest of the 2016 tennis season. Roger Federer withdrew from the 2021 Australian Open in January because he was still recovering from knee surgery and because Australia has severe COVID-19 quarantine regulations. Federer said on August 15 that he had another knee operation as a result of suffering yet another injury during the grasscourt season. He announced his withdrawal from the US Open and said he would be out of the game for several months, although he wanted to return in 2022.

 
 

Roger Federer's Retirement

At the September 2022 Laver Cup, Federer made the announcement that he will be making a comeback to the tour. He announced his impending retirement from competitive tennis on the ATP Tour on September 15, 2022, adding that the Laver Cup will be his final ATP match which is held on 23 September 2022. 

Federer said goodbye with one final match on Friday night before retiring at age 41 after a stellar career that includes 20 Grand Slam victories and a statesmen role. His career as a professional athlete came to an end after he and his old rival Rafael Nadal lost in doubles for Team Europe in the Laver Cup to Frances Tiafoe and Jack Sock of Team World. The truth is that the winners, the numbers, and the score (OK, for the record, it was 4-6, 7-6 (2), 11-9) were completely irrelevant and unimportant. After all, the occasion revolved around the actual farewell.

I'll play more tennis in the future, of course, just not in Grand Slams or on the tour, he said in reference to his future tennis playing. In his final match, he lost to Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe in doubles while playing alongside longtime nemesis Rafael Nadal. His 1750th match of the tour was the one in question.

Federer hugged Nadal first, then Tiafoe and Sock, signaling the end of the match and his career as a professional tennis player. Federer then started crying. Federer placed his hands on his hips while his chest heaved in response to the cheers and loving shouts that were coming from the audience. The crowd screamed, Let's go, Roger! were then applauded as he mouthed, Thank you. Let's go! was shouted in the last seconds of a game that lasted more than two hours and finished at around one in the morning.

Following the game, Federer's wife Mirka, their twin girls and twin boys, as well as Federer's parents, joined him on the court for hugs and, yep, more sobbing. Federer was lifted into the air by both squads working together.

It’s been a wonderful day. I told the guys I’m happy; I’m not sad, Roger Federer said. I enjoyed tying my shoes one more time. Everything was the last time.

 

The crowd rose for a loud and prolonged standing ovation when Federer, 36, and Nadal, also 36, emerged together from a tunnel leading out to the black court for the final match on Day 1 at the O2 Arena. He had stated that he wanted this to feel more like a party than a funeral, and the crowd complied. They stood there for about ten minutes, taking pictures with their phones while the team warmed up before the game.

They arrived prepared to cheer for him, some carrying Swiss flags and others holding homemade placards that read, Idol Forever, and they created a wall of sound when Federer won the match's second point with a forehand volley. Similar responses were only raised when Roger Federer was called upon to serve before the third game and again after he ended that game with a 117 mph service winner.

In the world of sports, Roger Federer is incredibly well-liked and regarded as one of the all-time great tennis players, with many players and pundits in the years between 2009 and 2018 thinking him to be the best player ever. The finest sportsman of his generation has also been said to be him. He has received the tour's Sportsmanship Award from his peers a record 13 times, as well as the ATP Fans' Favorite award from tennis fans for 17 straight years. A record seven times have seen him honored as the Swiss Sports Personality of the Year.

Roger Federer has received the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year award a record five times, including four in a row from 2005 to 2008. He has also been named the ATP Player of the Year, the ITF World Champion, and the ITF World Champion five times. Additionally, he is the only individual to have received the BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year honor four times.

Roger Federer’s Controversy

 

Roger Federer Controversy with Stan Wawrinka

Mirka Federer may have been overly excited during her play against Stan Wawrinka in the 2014 ATP Tour Semifinal. In the closing moments of the match, ES thinks Mirka had accused Wawrinka of complaining. Before Federer won the match, Wawrinka missed three match opportunities, one of which came in the decisive service game at 5-4. Then, he reportedly withdrew from the championship game because he wasn't match fit. Who knows, there may be a second explanation for that!

 

Roger Federer's controversy with Pakistan

When Roger Federer backed India in the 2015 World Cup match between Pakistan and India, he offended his Pakistani followers' feelings. With the hashtag #BleedBlue, he tweeted a picture of himself donning an Indian jersey. Many Pakistani supporters took that way too seriously and responded to Federer's tweet with some thought-provoking remarks.

Is Roger Federer supporting India? read one of them. Let me commit suicide. Why are you testing me, God?

In the end, he was forced to apologize to his supporters for hurting their feelings!

 

Roger Federer controversy with Boris Becker

The most popular male athlete on the Tour is by far tennis legend Roger Federer. 

Rivals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have also seen comparable success on the court, but the Swiss ace has approached his path with grace.

But a while back, Federer was chastised by former Grand Slam victor Boris Becker in his book Boris Becker's Wimbledon. He believed that the 40-year-old footballer hides his true personality out of respect for his hefty sponsorship deals and his international reputation.

 

Roger Federer's controversy with Andy Murray

Andy Murray lost his cool with the referee during the Australian Open 2014 quarterfinal match after Federer was awarded the point despite the fact that video replays showed that he had actually scooped up the ball after the second bounce. Roger Federer requested that they refrain from repeatedly playing the replay since it appeared contentious. In the same game, Federer broke Murray's serve and even went on to win the match!

 

Roger Federer controversy of banned shoes

Because Federer's Nike trainer shoes featured a lot of orange hues and so broke Wimbledon's all-white rule, they were disallowed from the 2013 tournament. The All England Club advised him to switch out his shoes in the following rounds since the authorities thought the bright orange sole was a bit much. Notably, he escaped punishment for the transgression.

 
 

Roger Federer’s Net worth

Roger Federer's net worth is estimated to be around $550 million or 4,469,05,25,000 Indian Rupees by Celebrity Net Worth. This includes his investments, endorsement deals, and tennis prize money. Forbes' list of the seven highest-paid athletes for 2021 included him.

Tennis players depend on prize money from various competitions held throughout the year instead of having a set salary. Roger Federer has collected a total of $130,594,339 in prizes since going pro. In terms of total winnings, he comes in second only to Novak Djokovic.

When compared to other sportsmen from various sports, Roger Federer has one of the largest endorsement portfolios. Barilla, Credit Suisse Group (ADS), Lindt & Sprungli, LVMH Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Mercedes-Benz, NetJets, On, RIMOWA, Rolex, Sunrise Communications AG, Switzerland Tourism, Uniqlo, and Wilson Sporting Goods are just a few of the brands he now endorses. Up until 2018, Nike served as his gear sponsor. He inked a $300 million, ten-year deal with Uniqlo after his deal with them expired.

 

Roger Federer made an investment in the plant-based food startup NotCo in 2021. The tennis star is a shareholder in Swiss clothing company On, whose sneakers he has been sporting since 2021. Additionally, he owns his own management firm, Team8, which played a key role in organizing the Laver Cup.

Federer still resides in Switzerland, where he has a magnificent home with a view of Lake Zurich. Along with his wife, children, and parents, he resides there. The home was constructed in 2014 on a 1.5-acre property for about £6.5 million. His parents and his family each have an apartment in the three-story house, which is divided into two separate units. The opulent lakeside estate has a number of cutting-edge facilities.

The number of vehicles in Roger Federer's collection will turn automotive enthusiasts green with envy. He has six vehicles, including the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster, Mercedes AMG G63, Mercedes-Benz V-Class, Mercedes AMG GT, Mercedes AMG GLE 63 S, and Range Rover SVR, according to an AutoBiz report from 2021.
