Washington, December 9: Roger Federer, the 20-time Grand Slam champion, was stopped by a security guard for refusing to enter Wimbledon, the same Grand Slam tournament in which he has won eight titles, the most by any player.When host Trevor Noah asked him about the incident in an episode of The Daily Show airing on Thursday, the Swiss Maestro said, You become a member automatically when winning Wimbledon.I'm like, OMG, I don't have my membership card, but I am a member and I'm just curious where I can get in, and she said, Okay, but you have to be a member.I was like, Im just asking you again, where can I go, and she said, On the other side, you have to be a member, and I think I have to admit that I couldnt believe it and still cant believe I said it because I feel bad about it.

Believe me, I am a member of the Confederation, he said.Federer, who was unfamiliar with membership cards, told her that he did not have one but was a member.I wasnt sure if it was eight anymore because I thought it was seven or eight.But I said it because I never talk like this, Federer said on the show.He said he had to drive to another gate before being recognized by a security guard who took a snapshot with him and scheduled a meeting with ALTEC chairman Fred Fischer, who joked that he didnt do it.The most recent match was a doubles match with long-time friend and rival Rafael Nadal at the Laver Cup earlier this year.
