federesque coffee table 500

A new coffee-table book has just been published that will delight Federer fans the world over!

Called “Federesque”, the new large-format, 104 page, hardback book provides a unique photographic study of Roger Federer’s 20-year career on the ATP circuit, and pays testament to the never-ending record-breaking achievements that have now led to him being called the greatest tennis player of all time!

Not just another Federer book!

With approximately 30 books already devoted to Roger Federer’s tennis, what gave Geneva publisher, Sandor Szabados, the idea to produce another?  He told knowitall.ch,

“In November 2017, I was looking for an elegant book on Roger Federer to give as a Christmas present. Whilst I found many books about Roger’s tennis, I couldn’t find a single high-end photographic coffee-table book on the man himself. So, being a photographer, publisher and Federer fan in my own right, I decided to create the book that I was seeking myself!”

“Federesque” has been published by BTL- Beyond the Lens. Printed with an elegant landscape design, it includes artistic photos from the 20 Grand Slams he has won over his illustrious 20-year career.

Award-winning tennis photography

From his first appearance on the ATP World Tour as a wild-card entry at a clay-court tournament in Gstaad in 1998, to landing his 20th Grand Slam title at the 2018 Australian Open, Federer has played with unparalleled elegance, perfection and artistry. Sandor has chosen the work of award-winning tennis photographer, Antoine Couvercelle, to illustrate the emotion and humility of this Swiss tennis ambassador with over a hundred beautiful images for his book.

World-leading sports journalism

Accompanying the photographs are mini-essays from leading tennis journalist and author, Mark Hodgkinson, who has witnessed most of Federer’s career highlights, and has interviewed the Swiss role model icon several times. Originally written in English, Hodgkinson’s words have been translated into German and French to produce two different versions of the book for the Swiss Market: one French with English and the other German with English. (Although the book has not been endorsed by Federer, Mark is extremely grateful for the interviews that he has given him during his historic playing career).

Over the last 20 years, Roger Federer has changed how the world sees Switzerland, which has long been associated with watches, cheese, chocolates, and luxury goods, plus mountains and banks. Thanks to Federer, unquestionably the greatest and the most elegant tennis player of all time, the country is now also known for sporting genius. It was in 2003 - the same year that Ernesto Bertarelli’s Team Alinghi won the America’s Cup, giving landlocked Switzerland this trophy for the first time – that Federer became a Grand Slam champion. Fifteen years later, with the 2018 Australian Open triumph under his belt, he is still winning majors!

Priced at Fr. 55.- and available online and from leading bookstores in Switzerland from 1 May 2018, Federesque will make the ultimate gift for those who admire and adore Federer!
