Entries in Roger Federer (112)

Hot Or Not: Fed's Vest

So Fed had a bit of a bad day yesterday. He lost to Kei Nishikori in a tight three setter and he got shat on by a bird. 

But Federer didn't really help himself when he entered the court wearing an ugly sweater vest. It didn't even fit very well, leaving his polo looking like it was stuffed with '80s shoulder pads. Eek.

Federer Tweeners It Again

There's something pretty special about Roger Federer's tweeners, right? Other pros can hit the shot, sure, but only Federer seems to make something magical out of them time and time again. His latest against Benjamin Becker might be my favouirte... the tweener lob? And I didn't think it could get better!

Australian Open 2014: Fashion Hits and Misses

This took me a little longer than I had hoped, sorry guys, but I've been busy roasting at the Open. By the time I'd spent 10 hours in 40 degrees this week all I could do when I got home was flop into bed. But better late than never right? So let's get on with it and see who looks sexy and who looks scary at the AO this year.

Does Serena ever look bad these days? She's ditched the vibrant colours of her recent outfits and gone for something a little softer here, and I think it works. She's looking very ladylike in pink with much more feminine make-up and hair than usual. Although I like Serena with a bit of bite, I appreciate this gentler side too. I'm particularly fond of the hair. However, the outfit lacks the x-factor which prevents it scoring higher.
8/10

Federer Hits With Tsonga and Laver For Charity

Roger Federer held a charity event at Rod Laver Arena last night and I was lucky enough to attend. The night was called Roger Federer & Friends and it kicked off with some interviews with Australian stars, Tony Roche, Lleyton Hewitt and Pat Rafter.

The main event was to be an exhibition match between Federer and Jo Wilfried Tsonga, but first both those men needed warming up. Tsonga was lucky enough to get Rafter to hit with before the match. As someone who didn't watch tennis before Federer became a force, it was interesting to see how simply Rafter's swing is. He reminded me of golf's Ernie Els, who is nicknamed 'The Big Easy'.

With Tsonga warmed up, we all wondered who was going to warm up Federer. Lleyton was in a suit, (and Brisbane probably a little too fresh), so perhaps it would be Fed's old coach, Tony Roche? Nope, out of the tunnel came none other than Rod Laver, dressed in his tennis whites.

Video: Andy Roddick Interviews Roger Federer

When you mix the snarky but hilarious Andy Roddick with the ultra suave Roger Federer you get a very entertaining interview!!!  

Andy is a natural in front of the tv cameras, and the whole interview is great, but I thought the most intriguing part of the interview was when they talked candidly about their 2009 Wimbledon final.  Andy mentioned how heartbreaking that loss was for him, but he also mentioned how appreciative he was that Fed was very reserved in the locker room after the trophy presentation.

But, the BEST part was when Andy called Fed a "selfish bastard"  To see how Fed responds, press PLAY!

Federer Covers the NY Times

Those wrinkles on his forehead may be getting more pronounced, but Federer still believes he can win tennis matches. That's a good thing, because he still takes a very pretty picture and makes for a fantastic interview. The New York Times Magazine must have recognised this when they chose Federer for their front cover and featured a multiple page story on the champion.

Bits of the interview are completely new to even the most obsessive Fed fan. He talks openly about retirement:

 “I honestly don’t want to think about it,” he said politely, “because the more you think about it, the nearer the end is, and that’s why I avoid the thought of it.” But he went to say that he was not sticking around because he needed tennis. “I don’t need to come back to Wimbledon every year because I can’t live without it,” he said. “I’d be totally cool without tennis.”
