Roger Federer, the 20 time grand slam champion, has achieved almost everything in his 24 years long career. Throughout all these years, he has enthralled tennis fans with his smooth movement on court, its like poetry in motion. But now he has different plan for everyone and you’ll definiately love it.
Roger Federer shoots ad for Swiss Tourism
The Swiss tennis Superstar became a Switzerland Tourism ambassador in March this year, and they have gone all out with their new advertising campaign. It did help that they could get Hollywood icon and Oscar winner Robert De Niro to feature in the ad/film titled “No Drama”.
The film shows that Switzerland is calm and peaceful and basically has zero drama. The zero drama bit is intended to welcome people across the globe to visit Switzerland and enjoy its scenic calm, serene environment and beauty. The ad ends with de Niro declining to shoot in Switzerland and asking Roger Federer to talk to Tom Hanks about the role. So fans who have loved Federer’s acting can expect a second part soon.
Federer to play in Geneva, targeting Wimbledon and Olympic Games
Roger Federer has only participated in one tournament in the last year and a half, the Qatar Open 2021. In that tournament, he beat Dan Evans of the UK in the first round, in a tight three set match 7-6 3-6 7-5. In the second round though he went down to Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia in three sets 6-3 1-6 5-7. Since then, Roger Federer has not participated in any tournaments.
This year is particularly important for Federer as it is the Olympic year. Federer has time and again said that he wants to win one more Olympic medal for his country, and this realistically is his last chance. Ideally Federer would like to play a few tournaments before he heads to the Olympics, and the Geneva Open is where Federer is likely to start that process.
