Roger Federer Stopped By Security at Australian Open

Including six Australian Open, the 20 times singles grand slam winner Roger Federer was stopped by security at Australian Open in Melbourne Park. Federer had to wait for one of his entourage to catch up with him to show his ID. Everyone must carry their accreditation when they are at Melbourne Park.

It looks like the name isn’t enough even for Roger Federer.

A video clip widely circulated on the social network, the guard is indicating Roger Federer that he is missing his Australian Open accreditation pass.

RF without arguing patiently waited for few seconds till his entourage came up to show his pass. That was when he was allowed to proceed through the door.

Players, coaches, officials, members of the media and others are given lanyards with badges that have a name, a photo, tournament role and a bar code that can be scanned at security checkpoints.

His simplicity was praised by tennis fans around.

Roger Federer will be in action today in the 4th Round of Australian Open where he will be against Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.
