Tennis maestro Roger Federer has added several amazing properties to his real estate portfolio over the years.

Swiss tennis maestro Roger Federer has made career earnings worth $550 million and has spent a sizable fortune of $25 million on adding stunning properties and land to his real estate portfolio.

Born to Robert and Lynette Federer, young Roger Federer played tennis with his older sister before enrolling in a junior tennis program in his hometown of Basel, Switzerland. Australian tennis player Peter Carter saw his potential and trained him until Federer turned 13. Carter helped him raise his position in the junior rankings and won the Wimbledon Juniors’ single and doubles titles. After turning pro in 1999, Federer began showing his talent through ATP tournaments. Since his career took after winning his first Grand Slam at Wimbledon in 2003, Federer went on to win 20 Grand Slam titles and was considered the greatest of all time. He has earned $130 million from prize money and makes roughly $65 million from brand endorsements yearly.

Roger Federer’s popularity in the sporting world has made him a highly bankable athlete with several brand endorsements. He has gone head-to-head with notable athletes and become the highest-paid sports personality in the world on multiple occasions. Living a lavish lifestyle with his family, the tennis star has spent $25 million on buying homes. Let’s take a look at his real estate portfolio.

1. Münchenstein Childhood Home

Growing up in Basel, Switzerland, Roger Federer made several friends in his locality, where his father worked in a pharmaceutical company. While tennis was regarded as a pastime in his house, Federer practiced it on his street and turned it into his passion. Despite his family’s poor financial state, they funded his games after realizing his potential to master the game. He grew up in the locality at Münchenstein, where several homes have been lined up with a similar interior. The narrow street has enough space for parking and play.

2. Lake Zurich Apartment

Roger Federer made his first big real estate purchase in 2008 when he bought an apartment on Lake Zurich in Bäch, Switzerland. According to Yahoo News, no information about the buying amount is revealed. However, it is an expensive neighborhood to have a home. It wasn’t until purchasing the property that Federer moved away from his parents in Basel, a year before he married his wife Mirka in 2009. It was also reported that the same year, he purchased a Swiss chalet in the Lenzerheide-Valbella ski area that has custom woodwork and a tennis court.

3. Herrliberg Home

Around the same time that Federer and Mira had their second set of twins, Leo and Lenny, the couple paid $30 million to buy 5,800 square-meter of land in Herrliberg, Switzerland. Overlooking the lakeside community, the vacant parcel of land offers heartwarming views of the town and the Swiss Alps. The neighborhood is reportedly costly, and while there was speculation that Federer would build a mansion on the estate, it remains empty but under his ownership.

After living in Basel and Bäch for a considerable period, Roger Federer moved his family of six to set up their base in Wollerau, Switzerland. The home was built from scratch, costing the Swiss maestro $7.3 million, as noted by Architectural Digest. The three-story mansion comprises floor-to-ceiling windows in each direction to offer scenic views of the nearby lake. Along with the unparalleled views, one of the home’s unique features is a stone fireplace that goes three floors up. Other rooms in the home include a spa, a swimming pool, a fully equipped gym, expansive decks, and underground parking for his extensive car collection.

5. Dubai Penthouse

It wasn’t until 2020 that people discovered that Roger Federer has an opulent penthouse in Dubai located at the Le Reve, one of the most exclusive residences in Dubai. As mentioned by GQ Middle East, the five-bedroom penthouse has a regal interior with a private terrace to offer sweeping sights of the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Marina. The home has technology-controlled systems for lighting, multimedia, and temperatures. Each room features elegant furniture with wooden flooring. The residential tower is also home to Fernando Alonso, a former F1 driver.

6. Rapperswil-Jona Compound

Along with his primary residence in Wollerau, Switzerland, Roger Federer has his eyes set on the next home he is building. The tennis star purchased a plot spanning 16,000 square meters in 2018 for upwards of $50 million, as stated by Hello Magazine. It is located north of Zurich in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland. While the update on the construction remains pending, the blueprints indicate that Federer has plans to add a tennis court, indoor sports arena, and a classroom on the property.

With the construction of his last purchase in 2018, Roger Federer will have ample time on his hands as the tennis legend announced his retirement from professional tennis starting September 15, 2022. Federer will find more time to spend in his multiple Switzerland homes with his family and friends.
