This includes a record 237 consecutive weeks. He had the second-most singles titles won on the ATP Tour with 103.

Federer had to complete his mandatory military service in the Swiss Armed Forces, just like every other male Swiss citizen.

However, he was declared “unsuitable” in 2003 and was hence exempt from his military commitment. Later, he admitted that his persistent back issue was the reason for his release.

Federer is not only tied up in tennis, but he is also interested in other sports. He attributes his hand-eye coordination to the variety of sports he participated in as a kid, such as basketball and badminton.

Furthermore, he loves soccer, and growing up, he supported FC Basel and the Swiss national team. Federer is a huge fan of soccer legends such as Lionel Messi and Pele

Diana is a huge pillar of support for Roger, she often attends his games with her family whenever her hectic schedule of being a nurse gives her a break.

When she was nine years old in 1987, her father took her to Germany’s Filderstadt to watch tennis. There, Maritna suggested that Mirka give tennis a try because she believed she appeared sporty.
