Roger Federer received yet another honor. The 17-time Grand Slam champions had a street named after him in Biel, Switzerland.
The street called “Roger Federer Allee” will lead to the new Swiss National tennis center once it opens in 2017. Federer trained there as a teen from 1997 until 2002.
While this is Federer’s first street in Switzerland, he does have one already in Germany. Halle named a street after Federer in 2012.
Federer’s parents Lynette and Robert were among the 2,000 or so in attendance for the event.
It is still unclear is Federer will play either Madrid or Rome.
