Roger Federer: What if the maestro visited you at your workplace?
Ever wondered what you would feel if the master Roger Federer visited you at your workplace? Well, the great man recently made a visit to one of the offices of one of his sponsors Credit Suisse and gave a glimpse into what may happen if he arrived in someone's office.

Former World No.1 Roger Federer is one of the most adored sportsmen around the world – The 17-time Grand Slam champion is known for his humility, his accessibility despite being the biggest name in Tennis and once again he surprised a lot of people when he arrived in the Zurich office of his long-time sponsor Credit Suisse.

On being asked why he was so pleased to meet his fellow countryman just like another man and not like a tennis player on the court, he replied: “It was important for me to seek and also find normal human contact, and it’s been great having lunch here at the Uetlihof [Credit Suisse's complex] today.”

He added: “Well, you certainly don’t get much of a private life, that’s one disadvantage [of being famous]. The nice thing, of course, is that people are always pleased to see you and you receive a lot of support. Many people also come up to me and say how great it is to meet me. That obviously gives you a really nice feeling. Amongst all the stress and in such a surreal world in the big cities and permanently on the road and all the pressure that builds up, it’s important to remember why I actually play tennis.”
