Over the years, the 20-time Grand Slam champion has been involved in philanthropic activities in Africa and other places.

Talking about Federer in the book The Roger Federer Effect, she said, “He plays along immediately, gets involved and is integrated within a short time. With Roger, the children lose their inhibitions. That is not a foregone conclusion. These children are not used to strangers and certainly not to people of white skin. Roger can open people’s hearts and minds at the touch of a button. Children, but also adults. That is impressive for me to see. Usually, those children are afraid of strangers and have even burst into tears with her.”
