The former world’s number one and UAE’s favorite Roger Federer, has sent out a special message to his fans after being voted the fans’ favourite singles men’s player for 18th straight year at the yearend ATP Awards.
This was an amazing success for Federer after being fans favourite for another year in a season that saw him compete just a handful of tournaments. The all-British pairing of Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski claimed their first fan-voted honour in the men’s doubles.
Federer who is currently practicing in Dubai with the hope of playing at the 2021 Australian Open from February 8 has reached out to his fans.
He said to his fans,
“Hey, it’s Roger here. I hope everybody is doing well in a difficult year. I just wanted to thank you all for winning the fans’ favourite award this year again,” Federer said in his short video clip.
“Thanks to the ATP, to all the tennis fans out there voting for me, believing in me and wanting to see me back on the Tour. I am training hard in making that possible. I hope I can play in front of all of you guys again very, very soon,” he added.
“Happy holidays to everybody and a happy new year of course. Let’s hope it all gets better next year. Let’s be patient for now and I can’t wait to see you all again very soon, so take care and thank you, thank you. And I will see you soon. Bye, bye,” Roger concluded.
