Roger Federer | How to be a Hero in 2018

When you hear the name Roger Federer, what do you hear?

You hear that he has 20 Grand Slams under his belt, that he was ranked one of the top tennis players in men’s singles and that he won his record-breaking 8th Wimbledon at the age of 35.

Not only is Federer loved on the court, but he triumphs our hearts off the court. The Roger Federer Foundation, run by his own family, is one of the many reasons why we admire him. The Foundation ‘believes in the power of people’ and stands as a strong advocate by supporting educational projects in both Switzerland and South Africa. The Roger Federer Foundation says that the charity, “enhances a world where children living in poverty are able to take control of their future and actively shape it.”

Federer himself was shaped in the image of his heroes. At just 11-years-old, Federer was amongst his country’s top junior tennis players, frequently imitating his idols, Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg so that his technique would become extraordinary, which is has. Although he had entertained other sporting activities, such as basketball and baseball, he soon realised that Tennis was his sole passion and decided to focus all of his attention on this natural ability. Clearly, you can see that this was the right decision just by looking at his Tennis career from 2017 alone where he held 7 titles, 2 Grand Slams and 52 wins, Federer is undeniably unstoppable when he steps onto the court.

At the beginning of 2018 Federer drove it up notch. He powered through the Australian Open finals without dropping set, ultimately beating Marin Čilić in a five-set final. With the number 1 spot within reach Federer entered Rotterdam on a wildcard. He had last held the top ranking in 2012. After beating Robin Haase in the quarter finals, and then Grigor Dimitrov in the final at Rotterdam Federer reclaimed his number 1 ranking. In doing so he also bested tennis legend Andre Agassi’s record by becoming the new oldest number 1 in history. As we write this he has held the top spot for record-breaking 303 weeks, longer than anyone in history. What a triumphant climax to his age-drying career – if indeed we are near the end.

So, we have come to a conclusion about Roger Federer – that he is an incredibly ambitious, dedicated and generous man who continues to grace us with his presence with nothing to prove, only his love for the game. We are very excited to see Federer adorning us at Wimbledon this summer along with some other remarkable, young talent. Will he see another victory? We hope so!
