Roger Federer’s tennis memorabilia, including outfits, racquets and shoes from his winning Slam campaigns, were recently auctioned off to benefit the Roger Federer Foundation. The event was a huge success as it raised £ 1.329 million.

The auction was organized by Christie’s, with the proceeds going towards the costs of educating disadvantaged children in Africa and Switzerland. In addition to highly sought-after Roger Federer memorabilia, the auction also has around 300 other sporting items on sale.
