My experience with Roger Federer :)

So i was walking home from the shops and I see someone familiar in a shoe shop right beside my house. I stopped and walked back and realised it was Mirka Vavrinek. I was like 'Oh wow thats cool , she must be taking some time off while Roger practices'. after stopping home and excitedly telling my roomate I went off to go get milk and I was going to pop in a say good luck to her for tomorro until I see Roger sitting there. I wasnt expecting it so I walkled by and hurried to get my milk. On the way back I looked into the shop and they were still there. Mirka was tryin on shoes with a friend and Roger was sitting there looking pretty bored on his mobile phone. So I pop open the door and I said 'Good luck tomorrow Roger!' and he looks up with a big smile and says 'Thanks'.

It was a pretty minor encounter but I thought i'd mention it because it made my day. Also he is extremely handsome and elegant in person, his smile really was contagious. as for Mirka, ive always thought the slagging on here was a bit harsh but my god, she really is quite big

I think ill be the only person in Paris cheering for him tomorro, I was originally going to say that to him but in hindsight Im glad I didnt

Nice story.

The closest I got, was throwing a ball to him when he was practicing in Hamburg this year. I have been blessed by him looking at me.

Perhaps, but you'll have to look in his forum or in the "experiences with players" threads. Which is exactly where this waste of a thread should be

Re: My experience with Roger Federer :)

Thanks for sharing your experience, Frooty. YES - he IS more handsome and impressive in Real Life, I can fully back that up.

Have fun in Paris tomorrow, and be sure to send Rogi good vibes.

I was hoping you might have slaughtered him for being an arsehole. In which case, the thread would've fully merited its place at the top of the GM pile

Or that it was perhaps a sexual experience
