Roger Federer History
Roger Federer was born on August 8th, 1981 in Basel, Switzerland to parents Robert and Lynette. Federer began playing tennis with his parents and older sister Diana at a very early age and quickly showed signs that he had great talent for the game. At the age of eight Roger joined the Basel junior tennis program and at ten he met Australian player Peter Carter who saw the youngster’s potential. Carter and Federer trained together for the next four years until, at the age of 13, Roger accepted an invitation to attend Switzerland’s national tennis training center. At the time, the training center was located two hours away from Roger’s home in a part of Switzerland that spoke mostly French. Federer trained there for three years until a new facility was opened closer to his home in Biel. Peter Carter was one of the instructors at the new training center and his guidance helped Federer quickly rise up the world’s top junior rankings. As an amateur, Roger won the Wimbledon junior singles and double titles and was eventually the number one ranked ITF player in the world.
Soon after turning pro in 1999, Roger reached the semi-finals of a tournament in Vienna. After a few more high profile wins, Roger became the youngest member of the ATP’s top 100. In 2000 Roger represented Switzerland at the Olympics. Though he did not win any medals, he did meet Miroslava Vavrinec who was part of the Swiss national women’s tennis team. They immediately began dating and nine years later were married.
In 2001 Roger’s potential came to full bloom when he won his first ATP singles title. He followed this triumph at the Davis Cup where he and his fellow Swiss teammates defeated the United States. All of these successes led to the press coining the term “Federer Express” in their headlines. Roger went on to win his first two ATP doubles titles and end the season ranked #13 in singles.
One night Roger received many missed phone calls from his Coach Peter Lundgren. By the time he finally picked up the messages, Roger found out that his former mentor and friend Peter Carter had died. Carter’s death shook Roger to the core. He realized that he had not lived up to anything that Carter had taught him as a tennis player and even a man. Roger decided at that moment that it was time to step up his game on and off the court.
Roger Federer would eventually become the number one ranked player in the world, a title he held for a record 237 consecutive weeks from February 2004 to August 2008. As of this writing, he has won Wimbledon eight times, the Australian Open six times, the French Open once and the US Open five times. Federer has become one of the highest paid athletes in the world both on and off the court.
