Swiss watchmaker Rolex shared a very moving tribute to Roger Federer, praising the Swiss for all he has been throughout his stellar tennis career. Federer, a 20-time Grand Slam champion, has been a Rolex brand ambassador for over two decades.
Throughout his career, Federer was considered one of the most elegant and stylish players in the sports world. On the other hand, Rolex is considered one of the most stylish brands. “There are certain things that numbers cannot convey.
The beauty he brought to the discipline, enriching and perfecting his playing year after year. His grace and elegance on and off the field made him one of the most respected athletes of our time,” the tribute said.
“Numbers can never fully encompass the magnitude of his ever-expanding legend, nor the breadth of his continually inspiring legacy. He is a greatness that can never be measured. Our sincere thanks to Roger Federer for his impact on the sporting world and for tennis forever to make.”
In his farewell message, Federer thanked everyone who helped him be the player and the person he is today. “To my tennis family and beyond, of all the gifts tennis has given me over the years, the greatest, without a doubt, are the people I’ve met along the way: my friends, my competitors, and most importantly, the fans who bring this sport to life Federer said in his farewell message.
Federer, who has been one of the most marketed players throughout his career, especially thanked his sponsors. “I want to thank my loyal sponsors, who are really like partners to me,” Federer added.
