As I play catch up with tennis news from the last few days, here’s one you may have missed. Roger Federer’s international fame continues to grow. There are no limits! Yesterday the Swiss tennis great was honored by having a street named after him in Halle, Germany.

The “Roger Federer Allee” is the official street name and it will lead right to the main stadium at the Gerry Weber Open where he has a unique lifetime deal with the tournament. Now he can drive his Mercedes down his own street!

“I am extremely humbled and honored at this gesture and I look forward and coming to Halle in June to participate in the dedication of ‘Roger Federer Allee’,” Federer wrote in a letter to tournament head Ralf Weber. “Over the years playing in Halle has meant a lot to me.

“On behalf of my entire family, thank you once again for this amazing honor.”

Federer most recently won Halle trophy in 2008. The 30-year-old Federer has a 36-4 event record, winning 29 of his past 30 matches.

Federer will be on soon in Madrid against Milos Raonic.

Epsilon Says:

They should just cut to the chase and announce Federeropolis or even Federerland and get it done with!


Michael Says:

Roger is not getting the due recognition that he truly deserves. Such tributes are very small compared to his gigantic achievements. Switzerland should honour him with the post of Ambassador for all its Son’s glorious display of histronics.


Djokowins Says:

Will you be happy if they rename Switzerland to Federerland ?


Michael Says:

Why not Djokowins ? Roger deserves that too and so is Nadal and Novak who are true son of soil.
