Roger Federer is considered by many tennis experts to be the best tennis player in history. He led the world rankings for 310 weeks, 237 of them in a row. That remains a record to this day. Just one of many: He was the oldest player to top the list, Federer was the only player to win three Grand Slam titles in one season three times, he also has almost unbeatable records in many other areas of his sport, and he is and remains a serious opponent on the court - even for much younger opponents.
But Federer also shines off the court with his social commitment: since its establishment in 2003, the Roger Federer Foundation has supported educational projects in the region of southern Africa and in Switzerland. According to its own information, 1,750,000 children had already been supported by the foundation by the end of 2020.
