We know so much about Roger Federer, who is eyeing his ninth Wimbledon title this year. But is all the dope we have on the Swiss legend enough? You will probably be in a position to say yes only after reading this article.
So, the reigning Wimbledon champion, who is vying for the No. 1 ATP ranking, has revealed all that he carries in his kit bag during a Grand Slam tournament.
In an interview with The Sun, Federer said, “For each event, I would probably have to have 15 pairs of shorts maybe. For the shirts, maybe 20 to 30. I have 12 racquets. I have also the same amount of headbands probably and wristbands. It's always about the same amount of numbers.”
At the ongoing Wimbledon, Federer has made it to the round of 16, where he will face France’s left-hander Adrian Mannarino later today. Federer has beaten Mannarino every time they’ve met on court. But the Frenchman, who has enjoyed a great run this Wimbeldon, gave Federer a tough time in their last meeting in Basel.
“I was close to losing against him the last time we played in my home town of Basel. He likes a grass court. He’s had a good run so far. I hope I can stop it,” Federer was quoted as saying by The Guardian.
