As if 16 Grand Slam trophies weren’t enough, now Roger Federer has his own street with his name on it.
Officials in Halle, Germany have renamed the street leading to the Gerry Weber Sport Park “Roger Federer Allee” in honor of Rog.
A five-time winner at the Gerry Weber Open — a grass court tourney that serves as a Wimbledon testing ground — Federer responded in typical fashion, saying he was “extremely humbled” by the gesture, calling it an “amazing honor.”
Just add it to the many unique honors Federer has received throughout his career.
- In 2007 Switzerland issued a one-franc Roger Federer stamp.
- In 2009, Federer was named “Ehrespalebaerglemer,” or outstanding citizen, by his hometown of Basel, Switzerland.
- In 2010 the Austrian post office issued 400,000 limited edition Roger Federer stamps.
- He has been the ATPWorldTour.com Fans’ Favorite for the past seven years.
- He was the 2007 Arthur Ashe Humanitarian of the Year.
- He currently sits at #25 on the list of Forbes Celebrity 100.
Oh, and in case you forgot, he’s also the Greatest Of All Time…
