early life

Roger Federer was born on August 8th, 1981 in Basel. His father is Swiss and his mother is South African. He has both Swiss and South African citizenship. Federer grew up in various Basel suburbs. He has one sister, Diana (*1979). He started playing tennis at the age of three.


Federer’s tennis career began rather unspectacularly and he shone more with great continuity and constant further development than with extraordinary international successes. A major development only came when he joined the tennis club TC Old Boys at the age of eight.

At the age of 12, the Swiss could look back on a number of national successes and a year later decided to move to the Swiss training center in Eclubens. Here he was promoted by the Swiss Association and was able to win several national junior championship titles in the following years.

He left school at the age of 16 to focus on his sports career. Shortly thereafter, he made his breakthrough at junior level at the Australian Open and Wimbledon. From then on, his successes entitled him to participate in tournaments in the professional sector.
