He may be enjoying the off-season currently, but Roger Federer continues to add another feather to his illustrious cap.

The Swiss tennis maestro has been awarded honorary doctorate by the University of Basel for his charity foundation that helps underprivileged children in Africa as well as for increasing the reputation of Basel and Switzerland on the international map.

The 19-time Grand Slam champion didn’t grace his presence at the award ceremony, but left a message saying that the degree makes him “just as happy as a Grand Slam title.”

The award comes on the back of a highly-successful season for Federer, who won two Majors – Australian Open and Wimbledon – besides winning 5 other ATP titles that saw him finish the year as No. 2 in the world.

He is scheduled to start his 2018 campaign at the Hopman Cup in Perth, where he will join hands with Belinda Bencic for the mixed team event, starting December 30.
