Re: How does Federer travel?

Andy murray used the super seacat.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

So of course Federer travels with private jet, keep in mind also that he travels with his entourage (wife, children, trainers, masseur, parents, etc), which makes more sense and is actually cheaper in the long run if he buys a private jet rather than flying first class or renting, except if he gets it for free, and as mentioned above, he is sponsored by Net Jets.

Even Maria Sharapova made US$ 24 millions, mostly from product endorsements (Nike,Cole Haan, etc) and Nadal made US$ 31 millions.

Tiger Woods have made US$ 1 Billion in his career, and you can bet all your money most of it is not from winning prizes.

These days the most elite and marketable sports stars are making most of their money from products endorsements.


Oh come on! This is not an issue of money but also about environment protection!!

I think it would be irresbonsible to travel by privat jet all the time!

Lol Like one jet less in the sky is going to change anything. Get a grip.

One?? Lots of sport stars travel from one tournament to other!

The travelling footprints of one tennis star is probably worse than a little town of 1.000 people

Roger flies two planes. One for his trophies and baggage (wife and kids), and another for him to lounge around.

Re: How does Federer travel?

Since Djokovic is superhuman now with his gluten-free diet, several mid-tier players that hate the hassle of commercial flying like Ivo Karlovic and Florian Mayer ride on his back as he flies from tournament to tournament. I have heard that there is nothing more romantic than flying on Novak's back heading toward the sunset on a warm summer's eve.
