Upcoming media apperances by Roger

I saw this posted by a fan on Roger's site. I hope it turns out to be true!

The New York Times and the New Yorker will do feature stories on him.

He will throw the first pitch at the Yankees game on august 25th

He will also do David Letterman that day

Wow that's a lot of distractions before the US Open. Part of me hopes that this is not true.

distraction I agree but it's part of being a champion as well as a smart person, always taking time for the public I think it's good for fans and tennis in the US, players from other countries going in shows and stuff there, it'll help promote tennis more

Re: Upcoming media apperances by Roger

Anything he can do to be come more well known in the USA is fine by me. Unfortunately tennis is not a top sport here so his great play alone isn't going to make him well known. During Wimbledon he took time out to attend Elton John's fancy AIDS benefit ball. Didn't hurt his performance there.

Re: Upcoming media apperances by Roger

sounds good to me. this will not take so much of his time in NY and it's good to boost his image in the States.

Go, Roger. show them you can pitch a baseball too!

Last year, right after US Open was concluded with Roger's victory, a Swiss TV was on the streets of New York, asking normal people if they know Roger Federer. Many of the asked people answered "no." you are right, mirkaland. It is true that his excellence on tennis court alnoe doesn't make him famous in the States, considering that tennis is less popular than the other ball sports there.

Well, it is good that people get to know about him, but the priority is that he is a professional tennis player, I want it to be that way rather than having other schedules. Being known isn't important for Roger himself. But I bet Roger knows what he is doing and won't do whatever that could affect his game negatively.

Roger, Chiudi, Stan the Man, Michi, Timea, Swiss guys and girls

good luck RF!!

Roger got fabulous press in San Francisco Chronicle last 2 weeks. Anyone reading the Sports Pages got a good dose of him from Bruce Jenkins.

Re: Upcoming media apperances by Roger

I was just watching the Nasdaq last week and I thought, how come Rogi doesn't open the session??? Hmm... interesting!

I also thought that Rogi s do some bp in TO next yr w the Blue Jays but I see he'll do it w the Yanks in NYC!

COOL! AND finally he'll do the Letterman show!!! WOW!!!

So that's when his article will finally show up in the NYorker mag???

Don't forget Rogi will be in the Men's Vogue too -- I think it's a new mag to start Sep. [a quarterly one]!!!

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Re: Upcoming media apperances by Roger

Cool, I'd love to get to see Rogi on Letterman (gives me a reason to watch it now ). I'm sure he knows how to pace himself, if any of these things were going to interfere with his training etc. he probably wouldn't have agreed to them.

Re: Upcoming media apperances by Roger

I can't wait to see Roger and see those profiles on him. He will be great on Letterman and I hope he does his show again after he wins it because the winner usually does the show.

Re: Upcoming media apperances by Roger

I think it's great for him to do so many appearences in the US media. Like it or not, it's the most important country when it comes to make your name famous. It will also help to promote the event itself and I'm sure it won't affect negatively his performances. Go Rogi!

I know he's not the one to care for fame and all, but wouldn't hurt to be a little more known by non-fans of tennis. Afterall, might not even be for himself, but he often stands that he'd love to make tennis more popular.

How come he didn't do it last year?
I hope he's able to do it this year AFTER the event, then.
