What needs Federer to do to be really famous in the US ?

take American nationality ?
Win Superbowl ?
Date Pamela Anderson ?
6 USO in a row ?
15 slams ?

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Re: What does need Federer to be famous in the US ?

personally, he needs to be American, simple as that

OR he needs to give French players heaps of shit after he beats them, while dating Jessica Simpson and Hillary Clinton

He needs to be like an american star: to make ads, go to talkshows, go to showbiz' parties....like roddick, williams', sharapova, or kournikova,...
But i don't think Roger needs it, he's the best in tennis so....

Rafa Australian open Champion

I don't know. To be honest with you, I don't think it's a priority for him.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

Exactly. The guy is one of the most if not the most talented person ever to pick up a tennis racquet. Star status is not for serious tennis players. And yes that goes for Serena too. She's monstrously talented but it's scary how good she would be if she eschewed the allure of the diva.

It's not like the US is the centre of the world anyway

And not just that. Roger's already popular to those who matter anyway-his fans and the people who are in a position to take him to the next level personally and professionally (i.e. sponsors). Roger really has nothing to prove.

That FedXXX clip circulating on the web will make him famous...

You're talking about the one with Serena, "Serena makes Number 1" (Vision of horror !)

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Should Roger go with the suit+sneakers look or maybe the bandage over the clothes label?
