Property prices in Shanghai are too high for Roger Federer
And it is no different when he participates in the Shanghai Rolex Masters
Swiss tennis great Roger Federer, who turned 37 yesterday, usually rents houses for his family and his team when he plays in tournaments across the globe. And it is no different when he participates in the Shanghai Rolex Masters.
In a recent interview to Tennis World USA, Federer, who owns many houses in Switzerland, was asked if he has any plans to buy a house in China's biggest city. "I have no plans yet and I probably won't. I'm not here enough. They have great hotels here, and I think hotels work perfectly for me at the moment. The price is too much, probably, like in every big city around the world. These big cities have a way to have very high prices," he replied.
He was then asked about how he likes to spend his free time in Shanghai. I try to always go to some different restaurants or go back to some old classics I have enjoyed over the years in the city. Of course, I like The Bund [waterfront area in Shanghai]. Never looks the same, in a way, you know, the water, the boats moving around. I like it, the lights at night," he said.
