The town of Halle in western Germany hosts the Gerry Weber Open, a grass court tournament that serves as a Wimbledon warmup. Federer has won at Halle five times and has a “lifetime contract” with the tournament — if the Swiss great plays a pre-Wimbledon event, then it is the one in Halle. Since the start of May, a street leading to the stadium, known as Weststrasse, is now called the Roger-Federer-Allee. Tournament officials released a letter from Federer in which he said he is “extremely humbled” by the gesture, calling it an “amazing honor.” Federer, a former No. 1 now ranked third, has won 16 Grand Slam titles.
