Now ladies, I'm not talking about THAT spot! I'm talking about his pinpoint accuracy for his new commercial for Jura. However I'm sure that accuracy can come in handy in many situations! Enjoy!
A "making of" video of the commercial is after the jump!
We are used to seeing Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal battle it out on the tennis court, but today I bring you a new Fedal rivalry......
Usually when you see a picture such as the one above, with Roger Federer and Andy Roddick walking off the court, your instinct might be to assume that Roger extended his ridiculous winning streak to 22-2 over Andy without much of an afterthought. But, in a surprising (and exciting) twist in the 3rd round of the Sony Ericsson Open, Roddick did what he was unable to do for most of his career, and defeated the man considered the greatest of all time, for only the 3rd time in their 24 meetings. It was an emotional moment for Andy who has been battling a string of injuries which have caused his ranking to drop to 34, the lowest it's been in the past 10 years. But, what made this moment even more amazing is how both men were extremely complimentary of each other in their respective press conferences.
I thought I was just getting a good photos of Roger Federer on the green until I noticed that there was an unusual amount of television media surrounding him. I then zoomed out my camera and realized that he was talking to a woman with blond hair and their conversation was being recorded.
Talk about quick reflexes! Check out the amazing catch a ball boy made during the FEDAL semifinal last night at the Australian Open. With that kind of hand-eye coordination, I think that kiddo might have a future in sports. He should at least get ball boy of the year, if there is such a thing. Enjoy!
A dandelion is floats towards me in the humid Melbourne air. There's barely a breeze, but it drifts softly, never threatening to fall. I carefully pluck it out and cradle it in my hands. Between its soft, white hairs lie tangled green fibres. I make a wish and let it drift away.
Agnieska Radwanska moves well, defends well, and counter-punches with the best of them. But until she develops a serve and an ability to follow balls in, she'll always run into a player having a better day than her. That player today is Victoria Azarenka, although the first set doesn't fall that way. Azarenka's forehand is errant, and her serve is exposed as a real weakness as she collapses in the first set tiebreak. It's her only real lapse of the tournament so far. Yet as she's now famed for, she recovers mentally between sets superbly. She dictates play the rest of the match, doesn't allow herself to get too far behind the baseline, and hits her forehand with authority. She looks positively thrilled to be in the semi-finals.
The seats in Rod Laver begin to fill. Spoiled for choice corporates trickle in for a glimpse of Kim Clijsters. She's doing what everyone expected her to do against Caroline Wozniacki: win. The first set is wrapped up in no time, despite Clijsters getting tight near the end. Wozniacki's forehand, which has been much improved this fortnight, has reverted back to its loopy self. She misses uncharacteristic backhands, and comes to net on seemingly arbitrary shots. If Wozniacki is to win a Slam, not only does she need to become less of a pusher and more of a counter-puncher, but her shot selection also requires much work. She makes more of a match of it in the second, and forces a tiebreak, but comes up short. Clijsters pumps her fist as she dethrones the world number one. It never felt like it was going to be any other way.
