- Roger Federer honored by Blick (Swiss newspaper)
- Federer’s face was put on a 20 cents coin
20-time Grand Slam Champion Roger Federer continues to shine with lots of recognition coming to his way.Blick, one of Switzerland’s biggest newspapers published a special edition in honor of Swiss master after his Australian Open 2018 win.
On their special edition, Federer’s face can be seen on 20 cents coin.
‘Roger Federer has long been an icon’, said Felix Bingesser, Blick’s sports editor-in-chief. ‘And even at 36 years old he remains a fascinating and exciting figure.
This 20th Grand Slam win is another example of this.’ ‘With our ’20 Rappen’ [the price of the edition] campaign, we want to celebrate this historic success along with the people of Switzerland, since this is something we won’t experience ever again.’
World no.2 Roger Federer recently became the first man to clinch 20 Grand Slam Titles after defeating the 6″6 tall Croatian Marin Cilic in a thrilling Australian Open Final.
Also, Federer has the longest streak now of years winning at least one major championship — a Grand Slam, a Masters 1000 event, or a World Tour Finals. This proves how consistent the player is & really deserves the honor by Swiss newspaper.
“But I need to be very careful in my planning, really decide beforehand what are my goals, what are my priorities. I think that’s what’s going to dictate how successful I will be”.
We believe, with the player of his caliber, really deserves every recognition from his country or the sporting world.
