Roger Federer memorabilia: Roger Federer is one of the finest and arguably the greatest to have ever played the sport, and the Swiss maestro remains popular even as his career is drawing to a close. The 39-year-old saw his dreams of an Olympic medal crash after withdrawing from the Tokyo games due to a knee injury but fans still flocked to get a piece of him at a two-phased Christie’s auction. Federer donated a collection of personal items for auction to raise money for the Roger Federer Foundation, which raked in a staggering $4.7 million (35 crore).
Roger Federer memorabilia: The auction happened in two phases, with the first phase focused on Federer’s career at the four Grand Slams: Wimbledon and the Australian, French and US Opens. The memorabilia included t-shirts, racquets, and shoes including the outfit and racquet from his 2007 Wimbledon and 2009 Roland Garros final wins, which raised a combined £187,500 (1.9 crore approx).
