Federer buys holiday home in ski resort

Swiss tennis star Roger Federer has bought a holiday home in the eastern canton of Graubünden, a local official confirmed on Thursday.

“It’s true. Federer bought a house with grounds in Valbella,” said Urs Häusermann, a local politician.

Häusermann was pleased with the 27-year-old athlete’s choice though, saying it spoke highly of the region as a holiday destination.

The house is located near the village of Lenzerheide, south of Chur. The tennis star also has a condominium in Dubai and in March moved to the town of Wollerau, where taxes are low.

Federer, winner of 13 grand slam titles, is the all-time leader in prize money. Currently ranked world number two, Federer has earned $43.3 million (SFr49.1 million) throughout his career.
