The partnership between Rolex and tennis dates back to 1978 when Rolex became Official Timekeeper of The Championships, Wimbledon. This marked the beginning of a privileged association between two partners driven by the pursuit of excellence.
Since he won the first of a record eight men’s singles titles in 2003, Roger Federer has enjoyed a special relationship with The Championships, Wimbledon. His affinity with the hallowed grass courts has continued throughout a stellar 21-year professional career that has yielded an unprecedented 20 Grand Slam® singles titles.
Renowned for his skilful, elegant play, Federer underlined his remarkable longevity and dedication to his craft by winning the eighth of those Wimbledon crowns in 2017 aged 35, five years after his last Grand Slam® triumph.
