Footsteps of Federer: A Fan's Pilgrimage Across 7 Cantons in 10 Acts


Roger Federer could live anywhere in the world, but he always returns to the place he loves most: Switzerland.

Dave Seminara is a mad traveler and tennis lifer who has written about Federer for The New York Times.  A pair of autoimmune diseases and a knee surgery kept Dave from playing tennis for years, but as he inched toward recovery, he had an idea: why not start his tennis comeback on hallowed ground-courts that his hero Roger Federer graced in Switzerland.

Footsteps of Federer is an account of Seminara's travels across seven Swiss cantons in search of insights into Federer's character, which is inextricably linked to his deep roots in, and love for, his country.
