Playing in his seventh singles final in Melbourne, the Swiss phenomenon further enhanced his reputation as the one of the greatest champions of all time with his five-set victory over Serbia’s Marin Cilic.

In defeating Cilic to claim back-to-back Australian Open titles, Federer joined Australian Roy Emerson and Serbia’s Novak Djokovic as a six-time winner of the trophy.

It was Federer who dubbed the latter “the happy Slam”, a reference to the festive atmosphere enjoyed by players and fans alike at the opening Grand Slam tournament of the year, played each January below brilliant blue skies at the height of the Australian summer.

Federer has enjoyed his visits to Australia more than most, especially of late. It was at Rod Laver Arena last January that he embarked on a remarkable year of renaissance, defeating long-time rival Rafael Nadal in an epic five-set match to claim the first of two Grand Slam titles and a return to the top 10.

 
 

Associated with Rolex since 2001, Federer is indisputably a tennis legend. Among his achievements, he has spent 302 weeks in total as World No. 1, including 237 consecutively between February 2004 and August 2008.

Since his maiden Grand Slam tournament victory at Wimbledon in 2003, he has exemplified sporting greatness. His status goes beyond the tennis court he has graced with distinction for two decades.

Together, Federer and Rolex have built a partnership based on deep mutual respect and shared values. He is a sportsman of exceptional calibre, allied with human qualities that make him the perfect fit with the brand.
