With a slight delay, Roger Federer also hits a beat and shows his followers to warm up their engines for the upcoming season on the red which, for him, will be reduced to the bone. From his social profiles, the Swiss posted a reel that portrays him in training on a clay court.
Simple writing that accompanies the always graceful and elegant movements of the former world number one: “Gearing up for Geneva”. Roger, in fact, will open his two stages on clay right from the home tournament in Geneva – scheduled from 16 to 21 May – to then play the Roland Garros.

Roger Federer’s career
With 20 triumphs, Roger Federer, along with Rafael Nadal, he is the most successful player in the history of men’s tennis in Grand Slam tournaments. In 2009 with the victory in Roland Garros he completed the Career Grand Slam. In 2017, by beating Marin Cilic in the final, he became the only man to have won Wimbledon eight times, the oldest and most prestigious tournament in the world.
On 28 January 2018, by winning his twentieth Grand Slam, he marks one of the most significant feats in the history of sport. From that date to 27 January 2019, he is the only player in history to simultaneously hold the record for trophies won in two different Grand Slam events (8 titles at Wimbledon, absolute record and 6 Australian Open, ex aequo with Djokovic and Emerson).
He is the tennis player who has won the ATP Finals several times (6) (obtaining the highest number of participations in the final, 10) and who has won the most titles both on hard (67) and on grass (19). In 2014, winning the decisive singles match against the French Richard Gasquet, he led the Swiss team to win their first Davis Cup.
At the Olympics he won two medals: at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing he won gold in the double together with compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka, while in London 2012 he won silver in the singles by losing in the final at Wimbledon to Andy Murray.
With 54 successes he is, behind Novak Djokovic (59) and Rafael Nadal (56), in third place in the ranking of the winners of the so-called Big Titles, namely the Grand Slam tournaments, the Masters 1000, the ATP Finals and the Olympics. With a prize pool of around 130 million dollars, he is the second player in history in the ranking of career earnings, preceded by Djokovic.
