Federer And Wimbledon Mourn Her Majesty The Queen

Locker Room

September 9, 2022

Federer chose carefully and used words often favoured to describe his own distinctive qualities.

They were beautiful words to mark the passing of Her Majesty The Queen.

Roger talked of her elegance and grace. They have always had that in common, these two greatly revered figures, and have been loved the world over.

The All England Club also expressed its grief and gratitude towards Queen Elizabeth II with some poignant and fitting observations.

Federer and Wimbledon always have been in step. And it seems that nothing will ever change in that regard.

Roger clearly spoke from the heart when he said: ‘I am deeply saddened by the passing of Her Royal Majesty. Her elegance, grace and loyalty to her duty will live on in history.

‘I would like to send my thoughts and condolences to the entire Royal Family and Great Britain.’

We would dearly love to see Federer back at Wimbledon 2023 in whatever capacity he sees fit.

He commands such respect and admiration.

Meanwhile the organisers of Wimbledon were no less of appreciative of their former Patron.

They wrote: ‘On behalf of the All England Club, we wish to convey our deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to members of The Royal Family on the sad passing of Her Majesty The Queen.

‘Her Majesty dedicated her life to the service of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth realms, duties she undertook with great wisdom, dignity and charm for 70 years.

‘As our former Patron for 64 years, Her Majesty’s visits to The Championships in 1957, 1962, 1977 and 2010 were special moments in the Club’s history and were marked with enthusiasm and affection from spectators, players and colleagues alike…’

As the AELTC then pointed out, Her Majesty met Federer in 2010, along with the likes of Andy Murray and Serena and Venus Williams.

The Queen clearly left a lasting impression on Federer – just as she did on everyone she met.

Sadly those days and opportunities are now beyond us all.

But Her Majesty will live on in the memory of all tennis-lovers in Britain.

And at Wimbledon Debenture Holders, we simply echo the heartfelt sentiments and sincere condolences of Federer and the Club.
