Christie’s London will play host to The Roger Federer Collection
This summer, Christie’s London will play host to The Roger Federer Collection, serving up two unique auctions of the tennis star’s personal sporting memorabilia to support The Roger Federer Foundation. Roger Federer is tennis’ greatest icon. The Swiss sportsman has enchanted fans across the globe during a career characterized by unprecedented success and remarkable longevity. Grand Slam victories, Olympic medals, tour titles and the crowning glory of the Davis Cup tell their own triumphal story, one that has seen Federer rightfully placed in the pantheon of tennis greats.
The Roger Federer Collection: Sold to Benefit The RF Foundation celebrates Federer’s historic achievements, with 20 lots from his Grand Slam victories offered for auction in London on 23 June. From a racket used in his fabled tussle with Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon in 2007 to the clay-covered shoes from his win at Roland Garros in 2009, these items provide a window into some of the sport’s most iconic moments. The corresponding online sale, taking place from 23 June – 13 & 14 July, chronicles Federer’s incredible career from the early 2000s right through to 2021, affording fans across the globe the opportunity to own a momentous object from his journey to date. Both sales will benefit The Roger Federer Foundation, which supports educational projects in southern Africa and Switzerland.
Roger Federer comments, ‘Every piece in these lots represents a moment in my tennis career and enables me to share a part of my personal archive with my fans around the world. More importantly, the proceeds will support The Roger Federer Foundation to help us continue to deliver educational resources to children in Africa and Switzerland.’
