The news of Wimbledon denied Roger Federer shocked his fans. Although Roger Federer has officially retired from the professional tennis circuit, the name “Roger Federer” will forever be associated with the sport. Federer, arguably the best player in the history of tennis, inspired a worldwide cult following. After just retiring from tennis, the tennis icon visited Wimbledon and shared a humorous memory from his time there. After he won Wimbledon for the eighth time, Wimbledon denied Roger Federer from entering. Federer, unaware of the existence of membership cards, informed them that he was, in fact, a member despite his lack of proof of membership.
Who is Roger Federer?
The Swiss master is held in high esteem not only because he has won 20 Grand Slam titles, but also because of the kind of person he is. Before retiring earlier this year, Federer had won every major tennis championship. As a Tennis legend, Roger Federer has won Wimbledon an unprecedented eight times in the Open Era. He won the first 20 men’s singles Grand Slam titles in a row. In 2012, at the Olympic Games in London, Federer took home silver. He declared his retirement in the year 2022. Federer’s classy play and gentlemanly demeanour have only helped his reputation, and he was once even elected the world’s second most respected person (after Nelson Mandela).
Why Wimbledon denied Roger Federer?
In an interview for a popular talk program, the man discussed the incident in detail. On a recent episode of Trevor Noah’s show, appropriately titled “The Daily Show,” Federer was pressed for comment on rumors that he had been denied admittance to Wimbledon. This was his first visit to Wimbledon when the tournament was not in session, and Wimbledon denied Roger Federer. He was denied entry because he didn’t have his membership card. He took her choice at its value and proceeded to the opposite gate, where he was able to gain access after introducing himself to the security guards. And “I almost went over to the other side to give a wave that I was in, but I didn’t,” he laughed.
