Once the curtains of the tennis season close, most players prefer to have some time with family and friends. Usually, they have specific and exciting holiday destinations on their Wishlist. One of the places that continue to attract many tennis players, if not celebrities, is the Maldives.
The Maldives offers a conducive environment, fascinating sceneries, and ample accommodation that befits celebrities who want to enjoy a perfect getaway. It is for those reasons why Roger Federer and Djokovic decided to spend their holiday in this magnificent part of the world.
Federer holidays in Maldives
For Federer, Maldives is one place he holds dearly at heart. The Swiss has been there on a couple of occasions, accompanied by his family. In 2017 the Swiss was in the Maldives with Cilic before playing in the 2018 Australian Open final in which the Swiss won.
The 38-year-old alongside his wife Mirka Federer is currently having some good time at Cheval Blanc Randheli. Cheval Blanc Randheli is a paradise in its own right. The property was designed by the legendary Jean -Michel Gathy, who is also the one behind other amazing resorts such as Chedi Muscat and a lot of Aman Resorts. This property has perfectly embarrassed the ancient Maldivian craftsmanship hence an ideal place to visit during holidays.
Federer has had an excellent run in the 2019 tennis season. The Swiss finished the year at position three according to the WTA rankings. He boasts of having won 20 Grand Slams titles, ranked position one five times.
Novak Djokovic in One&Only Reethi Rath Maldives
Novak Djokovic is also in the Maldives with his family enjoying the off season at One&Only Reethi Rath. This resort offers a wide variety of luxurious options that creates one of the most memorable holidays. It is not only spectacular but also served with unmatched privacy providing a serene environment for a perfect holiday. Among the activities one can undertake in a while in this all-villa ultra-luxury resort include diving and snorkeling in a bizarre underwater world.
The Serbian will hope to use this holiday to not only have fun but also reflect on how the season has been. The current world number two lost his number one spot to Rafael Nadal towards the end of the season. However, he still has some exemplary achievements that he can always take pride in.
He has 16 Grand Slam titles,34 ATP Tour Masters 1000 titles,5 ATP Finals titles, 7 Australian Open titles, one French Open title,5 Wimbledon titles,13 ATP Tour 500 titles and 3 US Open titles to his name. Besides, he has won the Serbian Davis Cup team and Davis Cup title. Such achievements really deserve to be rewarded with an exciting holiday in the Maldives.
