Shakespeare once wrote, “The head that wears the crown is unstable,” and Dr. Dre once said, “You have to work hard to get it, you have to work twice as hard to keep it.” All of this means that being at the top is difficult – especially when it comes to sports.
Roger Federer has been at the top of the tennis world for decades, but it hasn’t been easy – especially given the competition he’s faced with stars like Novak Djokovic and Raphael Nadal. It’s been particularly difficult for him lately: the 39-year-old Swiss legend wasn’t particularly successful in 2021. She knocked out the Australian Open as well as a number of ATP Tour events and had a somewhat mediocre performance in Qatar. to open.
So it’s only understandable that he’s felt the need to dig into it a little lately. On a mission to recharge his batteries, The Rog returns to Switzerland for a little research and development – and apparently indulging in some of his country’s watchmaking masterpieces.
Federer shared a picture of himself with SC trainer Bern Severin Lüthi in the main stadium of the ice hockey team in the Swiss capital last week and rocked the new Rolex GMT-Master II “Pepsi” – a refreshing new watch for the tennis champion that fans will love becomes.
Pepsi is one of the most famous models from Rolex. Its sugary nickname comes from its blue and red frame, but that color combination – GMT-Master’s original color scheme – was actually inspired by the now-defunct Pan Am airline color.

It’s a rare and sought-after watch, but we suspect Federer has a big problem getting his hands on it. As a Rolex ambassador, Roger has the best choice when it comes to Rolex watches. He previously wore GMT-Master ‘Batman’ so it only seems natural that he would want to add the other incredibly popular color combination to his collection.
Here, too, the temperature of Rolex Roger doesn’t stop there. At the end of March, it was also discovered with a much rarer and more well-known model: Cosmograph Daytona ‘Paul Newman’ was on the wrist when he observed it in Val de Bagnes in the canton of Valais.
Rare watches, also rare sights … you have to be a nice Swiss.
Federer doesn’t just seem to be on vacation in Switzerland. After retiring from several tournaments this year, he appeared to save his return in 2021 for the Geneva Open, which will take place May 15-22.
It won’t be easy for The Rog, however. Some strong players are competing in Geneva, including the Australian Alex de Minor and the German Alexander Zverev.
