Re: Have you ever been to a Live Tennis Tournament?

I go to Miami Masters pretty much every year...it is a great event, good prices too plus you usually can finagle box seats from those people who leave the night matches after the women play!

Now, had I not been distracted by the fact that he is really REALLY sexy in real life, I might have said something like, "WOW Roger. It's an honor to meet you." Alas, what I actually said was, "Oh my GOD! You're Roger Federer!" This statement was of course accompanied by enthusiastic finger pointing.

And to this brilliance, Roger replied, "Really? Thanks for telling me." Now, I could have left well enough alone and crawled under the most readily available rock. I didn't. Instead, I heard my mouth say to his retreating back "Wow. That didn't exactly go the way I imagined it." To which he shook his head and waved at me. Honest to God, I have NO IDEA if Mirka was with him, I was so embarrassed.

That's a great story. I've humiliated myself in front of Paul Westerberg before but he wasn't quite so openly amused about it as Roger.

Re: Have you ever been to a Live Tennis Tournament?

Adelaide, Sydney, Aus Open and Davis Cup ties, as well as a Futures event this year, and a number of wheelchair tennis events. It is accidental, if I end up at a womens tennis match.

None.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Have you ever been to a Live Tennis Tournament?

I've been to several ATP events, inlcuding the grand slams, but not as much in recent years.
I've been to a few WTA events, but I definetly prefer to go to ATP events.

It's a good story. It sounds like he wasn't actually annoyed, though, and was pretty good-natured about it. (Or was his parting head shake one of annoyance?)

Probably not, because he did the exact same thing by his own admission to Rod Laver. Starstruck!Roger.
