The FedererExpress

18.01.2008 | Off Court

Charged by the global community of rogerfederer.com with delivering fan mail in the “Red Envelope” to the no.1 tennis player in the world, a group of Australian fans are intent on creating a world first: a van converted into a mobile shrine to their hero, the "FedererExpress"!  


A 1988 Tarago, doomed for the scrap heap, is to get a new life, wrapped in professionally designed vinyl lettering and photos of our champion. In case the message is not clear, balloons and pom poms in the Swiss colours red and white will finish the design. The FedererExpress is the brainchild of a group of die-hard Roger Federer fans desperate to attract the attention of their hero. They come from all parts of Australia, but met here on Roger's website. They share a common passion and are now friends for life.


The FedererExpress will be running everyday the group is at the Australian Open. So it has been en route for a few days already and the reactions from the media and the tennis fans have been wonderful.


So look out for the FedererExpress and the “Shhh!! Quiet! Genius at Work” banner that has followed Roger to each of his tournaments around the world over the last two years.
