German Town Names Street after Roger Federer
Roger Federer has had his name on the trophy and now he has it on the street sign as well.
The town of Halle in western Germany hosts the Gerry Weber Open, a grass court tournament that serves as a warm-up for Wimbledon.
Federer has won the Halle event five times and has a "lifetime contract" with the tournament — if he plays a pre-Wimbledon event, then it is the Halle one.
Since the start of May, a street leading to the stadium, known as Weststrasse, is now called the Roger-Federer-Allee to recognize the achievements of the Swiss great.
