ALWAYS A YOUNG GUN
During his 18-year pro career, Federer has not once retired mid-match.
The multilingual Federer speaks English, German, Swiss German and French.
ALSO A CITIZEN OF SOUTH AFRICA
He represents Switzerland in tennis but also holds South African citizenship. His father is Swiss but his mother is South African.
FIRST WIMBLEDON TITLE - BOY'S TITLE 1998
His first Wimbledon title did not come in 2003 as many think. He won the boys’ title there in 1998, five years earlier!
NOT IN SWITZERLAND ARMY BECAUSE...
In Switzerland, military service is compulsory for all citizens. Federer was, however, discharged from his military service obligation. No, not because he was considered a special case, but because he suffered from a back problem!
CLONE MACHINE HE IS!
The Federer’s family might look like a clone factory – Roger and Mirka have two sets of identical twins – two girls, Charlene Riva and Myla Rose, born in 2009, and two boys, Leo and Lennart, born in 2014.
