Roger Federer has indeed become, and has established himself over the years, a face of aspiration and success for everyone. A person that everyone knows for his successes both on and off the court. It is difficult for fans to forget the achievements of the Swiss champion in the sport that, thanks to his incomparable style and the charisma that has distinguished him, he was able to rise up and re-launch himself, together with the help and talent of other great tennis players. The 20 Slams won in his career (6 Australian Open, 1 Roland Garros, 8 Wimbledon and 5 Us Open), as well as other important triumphs, have made him one of the most successful players in history along with the remaining two ‘ Big 3 ‘Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic. A record that the now 40-year-old from Basel still wants to try to tweak, making official in recent weeks the decision to end the 2021 season, to undergo surgery on his right knee and give himself another opportunity to return supercompetitive in 2022. But Roger Federer has distinguished himself as an entrepreneur and testimonial to major international brands, who have targeted him to dramatically increase profits. The former number one in the ATP rankings has relaunched On Running shares since 2019, when he joined the group, increasing online sales by more than 200%. His ‘endorsement’, especially in terms of image, was the decisive turning point for the company, which also took advantage of the presence of 6,500 stores in some 50 countries around the world.
Opelka on Roger Federer
Reilly Opelka believes that playing in the Laver Cup is a “huge honor” because Roger Federer and Rod Laver have their names associated with the tournament. Opelka will be making his Laver Cup debut this year but will not be able to share the stage with Federer, who is sidelined indefinitely due to a knee injury. “Yeah, I mean, first of all, the Laver Cup is the Laver Cup,” Opelka said. “They’ve done an unbelievable job of making it so special. There’s not many team events out there. They’ve capitalized on everything. They’ve built the dream event. Who wouldn’t want to be there? That’s a huge honor. Anything that Rod Laver has his name on, Federer has his name on, it’s a huge honor,” he added. It has been well over a decade since we have witnessed the greatness of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. These two supreme athletes have raised the bar of the sport and carried it forward. Over the years, they have been involved in some historic matches.
