“Sad” Roger Federer pays tribute to Queen Elizabeth after death




Shortly after Queen Elizabeth’s death was announced, Wimbledon champion Roger Federer wrote a farewell note and sent his condolences to the royal family. Federer posted the message on his Instagram Stories alongside a photo of him and Queen Elizabeth.

“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,” Federer wrote.

Federer once dined with the Queen

In 2010, as reported by the Daily Star, Federer dined with Queen Elizabeth. “She knew about my tough first round,” Federer said. “She told me to hit more backhands down the line,” Federer added.

Still, Queen Elizabeth isn’t the only royal who likes Federer. Kate Middleton admitted that her mother is a big fan of Roger. “Roger [Federer] is my mother’s heartthrob,” Kate, 35, said of her mother, Carole Middleton.

“I don’t think she’ll mind me saying that. I think he knows that too.” In a BBC documentary, Kate Middleton described her first memories of tennis. “I was really taken by [Andre] Agassi and [Pete] Sampras, [Goran] Ivanisevic and Steffi Graf,” Kate recalled of a childhood watching Wimbledon.

“Those were my first memories for me”. “It inspires young people including myself,” Middleton also said. “Every time Wimbledon is on I think, ‘Yeah, I could do the same’ and get out the racket.

Unfortunately not the same results”.

Wimbledon also sent condolences

The Queen was a great lover of sports. And of course, for many years she was the one who awarded the winners of Wimbledon when she came down from the Royal Box of the Center Court.

In a tweet, London Slam honored HM The Queen with a beautiful and touching message of condolence. See Wimbledon’s tweet here: Wimbledon offered heartfelt condolences to HM Queen Elizabeth
