A tube station with Roger's|name

02.04.2012 | Off Court, Starseite 3

In celebration of the Olympic Games in London 2012, the names of 361 tube stations will be changed to carry the names of Olympic athletes. Roger will have his own stop near the city centre. "Roger Federer" will be one of the stops on the black line, the so-called Northern Line and will replace the normal stop "Old Street".

Athletes like Lionel Messi, Samuel Eto'o, Usain Bolt, Fabian Cancellara, Carl Lewis, Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali will be honoured with their own tube station stops during the Olympics this summer.

Roger,

It is hard to believe that you want to be #1 again. If this is true, why are you taking 1 and half month away from tennis. Really I do not understand you. This tournament (Monte Carlo), cost the all #1 record for you, and it is going to cost a lot for you this year too.

Still is time to you wake up and play Monte Carlo.

I really love this idea, not only creative but also show the love from London to welcome all the Olympic athletes(of cos can't be all of them, but at least most famous ones). I think all the athletes would love to see their names as well. I wanna see Roger has his picture when he arrives at that station. Must be lovely!

Great idea ! Rodger Federer stop on the Northern Line tube station. Too bad the change is not permanent. It is a reminder of how special June & July is going to be. To focus with an indestructible life force in preparation... to be a Wimbledon Champion & an Olympic Champion in Men's Singles Tennis. Best of luck in the months ahead.

Always with you.

My two favorites will be in Olympic London together. Michael Jordan and Roger Federer. I'm impressed.

Great idea!
Fans- no pressure on Roger to play Monte Carlo. He knows best what he should be doing. If - IF - Murray wins there, as he is currently boasting he will do, yes he will go just above Roger in the rankings, but how long is that going to last? About five minutes! It's much more important for Roger to peak at the right time - i.e. Wimbledon and Olympics

What an honour! Congratulations Roger! Very well-deserved! I'd do anything within the scope of human capabilities to stop by at your post and watch you play at the olympics!

Roger deserve more than that

Nice! But if your neighbours is someone else it would be perfect!
