Recently, the Swiss ace sported the “Oyster Perpetual” from the latest Rolex collection. The watch has a deep forest green dial. It is one of the last pieces but the inspiration goes back to history. He wore the watch until the start of the first point of the match and back at the end.

The colorful new Oyster Perpetual worn by the Swiss ace is a reminder of a famous Rolex watch collection dating back to the 1980s. This watch and the personality of the 20-time Grand Slam winner go hand in hand.

Coming to tennis, Federer did not live up to his usual standards. A lot has to do with the two knee surgeries he had the previous year. At 39, things are not going as planned.
