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.
