I am amazed by Roger Federer’s tenacity! He took six month’s off the game of tennis to rebuild, rest and regroup. The results speak for themselves. He just won his 5th Australian open title In Melbourne Australia for 2017! This marks his 18th singles Grand Slam title. In my opinion and the facts show that this makes Roger the best tennis player of all time!
Not only does he keep his composure and humility on the court no matter what the odds are, he is a gentleman off the court as well. His victory speech was incredible! He gave a lot of respect to Rafael Nadal and even said he would have been fine if he lost to Rafael. He also told Rafael to keep playing tennis because the sport needs him. He also went on to thank the crowd for all their support over the years as well as his team and Rafel Nadal’s team. You can watch his speech below.
Roger is one of the most iconic Rolex ambassadors in the world. So it was quite fitting that he was wearing a Rolex Day/Night GMT-Master II affectionally known as the “Batman” while giving his victory speech .
That’s what I love about Rolex, there is no mistaking what it is. That color of blue half way around the ceramic bezel is so distinct and unique to Rolex. Although many have tried to imitate it. The polished center links are so refined and sophisticated it makes the watch look like white gold. Just like Roger game this watch is a Swiss winner that will always withstand the test of time!
