Maybe it's because I'm a Hamburger
An adaptation of the popular ditty "Maybe It's Because I'm a Londoner", this should be sung in the crowds to get the atmosphere up and running before the start of each match. It's no worse an idea than grouping kids into factions to support a particular player, complete with banners, like they did last year.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.
Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?
ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
