Swiss Street Named In Federer's Honour
Swiss great hopes to see future champions on Allée Roger Federer
The national centre for Swiss Tennis can now be found at “1 Allée Roger Federer”. On Thursday, the Swiss star returned to Biel, where he trained as a junior, to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony inaugurating the street.
Federer, alongside Swiss Tennis president René Stammbach and Mayor Erich Fehr, also assisted with the ground-breaking for the extension of the Swiss Tennis training centre, to open in 2017.
This is not the first time a street has been named in his honour. In 2012, the city of Halle, in Germany, unveiled “Roger-Federer-Allee” in recognition of Federer’s success on the grass at the Gerry Weber Open.
