What's the mark on Federer's face?

Anyone notice that he's had a big brownish mark on one of his cheeks since Monte Carlo? Did Fed have surgery/ an accident? At first I thought it was bruise now, it looks like a scar. I searched the forums for a thread but I couldn't find anything.

Re: What's the mark on Federer's face?

nothing official stated by Roger but I heard many people saying it's a bee sting, maybe it's taking too long to heal due to mono effects and all

Re: What's the mark on Federer's face?

I don't think so, no bee sting. I think he had something removed on his face, a mole or something, or maybe some benign cancer.

It's been there for a long time.

I thought it was a big ol Mole going into overdrive.

Maybe it's because of a Nole instead....

there is nothing in the world called benign cancer, there is a benign tumor, sorry too sensitive being medical and all

it started to show in Estoril - it looked awful, to be honest, but he didn't really talk about it.

Re: What's the mark on Federer's face?

I heard both carnbuncle and an infected gland. It was some kind of a boil or a huge pimple that got drained, hence leaving a mark. Hopefully it would fade with time.

It's getting better at least I'm very surprised no journalists asked him about it

Re: What's the mark on Federer's face?

Is it weird that I think it makes Roger look better? I don't mean that in a mean way... it sorta looks like a scar, sorta dangerous. Hehe. Someone slap some sense into me!

He, himself, said it was a bee sting.
