Roger Federer has set a new ‘off-field’ record, surpassing Rafael Nadal after his milestone in 2019
Roger Federer may establish a new record: one of his outfits from January 2018 will be auctioned off for a big sum! This is Roger Federer’s attire from the 2018 Australian Open: an iconic suit from a time when he was still wearing Nike and had not yet signed his million-dollar contract with Uniqlo.
Federer’s clothing will be auctioned off at Prestige Memorabilia. The initial price is $35,000 USD. Federer defeated Nadal because his Nike gear is far more expensive than the shirt with which the Spaniard won the Roland Garros in 2019.
It will set a new auction record for tennis memorabilia.
Michael Jordan owned the most expensive memorabilia of all time: the shirt he wore in the 1998 NBA Finals versus the Utah Jazz, which was auctioned off by Sotheby’s for ten million dollars.
Roger Federer Appeared At Laver Cup 2023
Roger Federer flew to Vancouver for the Laver Cup in 2023. In an interview with Eurosport, the Swiss star spoke on the present level of tennis, applauding the youthful talents who have emerged in recent years while also expressing his disappointment at not being able to meet them.
Federer initially congratulated Coco Gauff on winning the US Open, her first grand slam victory at the age of 19.
He said: “Contemporary tennis is in good shape if I look at what Coco Gauff did at the US Open. I think she did something special, and unique.
She’s been on the circuit for five years and is an incredible girl.”
Federer then talked about young men players: “Coming to the men, we experienced some great moments: Novak is rewriting history, Carlos Alcaraz’s exploits at Wimbledon, Daniil Medvedev who played fantastically in New York.
Many young men are emerging, a generation against which I couldn’t play.
I am referring to Holger Rune, Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to challenge them on the court but I think the future is bright.
The game is evolving, we evolve. But the nice thing is that I really enjoy watching the matches and commenting on the results.”
