Where does Roger Federer live when he's not dominating the courts?
Behind every great sportsman is an even greater house, and arguably they don't get any better than Roger Federer and his stunning home.
The professional tennis player is widely regarded as one of the greatest in the world, having won twenty Grand Slam singles titles; it may not be the most in the sport, but it is the record for a male player. Since he turned professional way back in 1998, the Swiss maverick has achieved endless victories and has been immortalised in the wider realm of sport in general.
It's no surprise that the tennis icon lives a life of luxury when he's off the courts. At the moment he's making waves at Wimbledon, which began on Monday, June 24th 2019 and concludes on July 14th; he's set to compete against Rafael Nadal on Friday, 12th July.
This semi-final is truly and surely history in the making. The pair's match in the 2008 Wimbledon final was grandly considered the greatest match of all time by many spectators. Considering they haven't met at Wimbledon since then, it can be considered one of, if not the most, anticipated tennis matches of the decade. No matter the result, at least he'll have somewhere nice to hang his racket afterwards...

Where does Roger Federer live?
Although the pro will doubtlessly have some luxurious places dotted around the globe, it's his pad in Wollerau in Schwyz canton which remains the ticket.
Architectural Digest noted back in 2018 that the home overlooking Lake Zurich cost Federer a staggering £6.5 million, but honestly, you could account for every penny when gazing upon its sheer design. The building is called The Residence and stands mighty as a 500-square-metre state of the art property.
Just as we expected, that's not the only place he can unwind away from the sport. The source also noted at the time that he had real estate in Dubai, South Africa and also two gorgeous corresponding chalets in the Swiss Alps. However, it really is The Residence that takes the cake on this one.
Inside the Wimbledon star's mansion!
We've all seen some really tremendous celebrity homes, and often they have the same sorts of facilities - the best that money can buy.
So, as you can imagine, the mansion is kitted out with a luxurious swimming pool and the works. Yet, it's the location and design of the building which makes The Residence really stand out from the rest. It offers spectacular views of Lake Zurich, giving him and his family breathtaking sights without them having to surrender the comforts of home.
Then, there's its general appearance. The windows are floor-to-ceiling, soaking the rooms in light and giving it such a modern look. If that doesn't sell you, then the added bonus of underground parking might! Check out these images in the video from Latest Celebrity News below:
Another home for the tennis legend?
According to Perfect Tennis in an article written back in April 2019, tabloids reported that Federer had purchased a 16,000 square meter plot of land right on the Kempratner bay, Zürichsee lakeshore.
They also note that the 16,000 square metre plot is simply taken up by grass, adding that building plans have been submitted; they're reportedly single-storey and considered to be understated in terms of layout.
So, perhaps a new luxury pad is on the cards.
