Even the greatest player in the history of tennis is not immune from classless celebrity death hoaxes roaming the Internet. A report claims that Roger Federer suffered from a car accident that caused his life and would have obviously ended his tennis career.
BUT these are again classless rumors that provides no other purpose but for “clickbaits” and empty hits for some scrupulous websites that just wants to get the extra money with the fake news.
The alleged Roger Federer dead story comes from the fake report that the 17-time Grand Slam champion was involved in a card accident in Madrid, Spain and that he was in critical condition on Wednesday night.
However, no major sports media outlets have reported the Roger Federer dead story that it’s obvious that it’s another celebrity death hoax, this time claiming a top player in a very popular sport.
How could Roger Federer be dead when he recently announced that he’s set for a comeback bid in his tennis career by joining the upcoming 2016 Hopman Cup in January. The Swiss legend will use this tournament as a preparatory tournament to the bigger one, the 2016 Australian Open also set the same month.
Federer, who is widely considered the “G.O.A.T.” in tennis, wants to add another majors title to his already long and successful career. Another Grand Slam title in the tournament in Melbourne, Australia will add to his legend and will create some comfortable distance with rival and World No. 1 Novak Djokovic.
The Serbian, who currently has 12 Grand Slam titles, wants Federer’s “G.O.A.T.” crown, but to do that he has to match Federer’s 17 total Grand Slam titles.
To prove that the Roger Federer dead story is just pure rubbish, the Swiss legend had posted images of his latest public appearance on Twitter.
Federer joined rival Rafael Nadal in the latter’s opening of the Rafa Nadal Academy on Wednesday. Nadal’s newest venture is to teach the sport of tennis and prepares him for a life beyond being a tennis pro when he eventually calls it quits in the sport.

Roger Federer is alive and kicking and don’t be fooled by the classless rumors that he has met his maker. Instead, believe that the Swiss legend still has a shot at immortality by adding another Grand Slam title next year.
