The Swiss tennis star found a way to please his restless avid fans with a Christmas treat.
For those seeing Roger Federer at his true value, not having him around the #Tennis courts for half a year has been cruel. But it was the way things went as the 35-years-old tennis star was unable to fully recover following his knee surgery from early February. It was a tough decision for Federer to make but there was no other way as the Swiss player wants to keep playing on a professional level for a few more years. So, his medical staff pointed out loud and clear that he needs to rest for few months if he still wants to consider competing at a high level.
His decision had multiple consequences as he failed to compete in Rio, his main objective in the early stages of the season. His fans also suffered but the ATP events and the stunning end of the season somehow compensated Federer's absence from the ATP World Tour.
Federer always stood close to his fans
While regarded as the most popular tennis player in history, Roger Federer never forget to please his fans. No wonder that when he plays a match the stands are over populated.
Now, with the #Christmas is knocking at the door, the former ATP no. 1 did not forget his fans.
