Federer renames Wimbledon trophy in tribute to “Former British Champion”

Federer renames Wimbledon trophy in tribute to “Former British Champion”

Roger Federer has given the Wimbledon trophy a special new name in a tribute to a previous winner at the All England Club

Federer won a historic eighth Wimbledon crown earlier this month to take his overall grand slam tally to 19.

The Swiss great has clearly been thinking about his record-breaking numbers, and posted the following photo on Twitter on Sunday

“Nice having Arthur at the dinner table,” he wrote, alongside a photo of the Wimbledon men’s trophy.

The tweet caught the attention of a number of his nearly 8 million followers, with many wondering where the name Arthur came from.

“He’s named after Arthur Gore, who won wimbledon in (19)0(8)!” Federer posted shortly after.

Federer put his total grand slams (19) with his Wimbledon titles (8) and re-named the trophy after the man who won it in 1908

Federer has played down his chances of winning a 20th grand slam title at next month’s US Open.

“That would be a joke, if I won three slams this year out of nowhere,” Federer told CNN recently.
