Commenting on his association with Rimowa, in an interview with CN Traveler, the Basel native said: «I felt like it was a very natural fit for me, for both of us.» I am a world traveler for 20 years, I compare myself to a musician, but I do a world tour every year.
I started in ’96, it’s been a long, long time, and the bags, the trips, the organization is just my life, you know. I know the Arnault family very well through a partnership with Moet and Chandon, they asked me if I would be part of their first global campaign and I said absolutely, it’s a very natural fit – I love the bags and the brand and there’s a lot of potential for the brand.
Being from Switzerland, I appreciate quality and craftsmanship.’ Speaking about his mindset before a trip, the 20-time Grand Slam winner said: «It’s mental preparation. You know what, things will go wrong, and if they do, no problem, don’t stop.»
The priority comes with the children: that they are comfortable. What we can control on our part, we try to do. Always leave on time, always give yourself a break. You don’t want to start missing flights, trains, trams, and buses; better take a little time. And eat healthy as you go.»
