Q. Last year you were given Juliet from your government. Would you like to expand the herd this year?

ROGER FEDERER: It wasn't from the government. It was the tournament of next week, of Gstaad.

Q. Would you like to expand the herd?

ROGER FEDERER: She got a baby. I already have two. We'll see what happens tomorrow. Tomorrow I'm getting there. Then we'll see what happens. I'm fine with two for the moment.

Maybe they could award Rogi with a duck (:D) or pig? Doesn't he have a cat already or something?

Go Juliette, it's time to provide some quality cheese for Rogi, as he will be needing it during his break.

Rogers farm is growing by the minute, some goats would be nice although goats cheese and goats milk is pretty revolting IMHO.

Geitost e fantastisk.

He doesn't need any goats, but Juliette is very productive at the moment, which is good I think.

No second cow for Federer
Mon 5 July, 2004 13:38

GSTAAD, Switzerland, July 5 (Reuters) - Wimbledon champion Roger Federer will not be getting a cow to go with the one he received at the 2003 Swiss Open.

Last year, Federer was presented with a cow to mark his first triumph at Wimbledon where he beat Australian Mark Philipoussis to become the first Swiss man to win a Grand Slam.

He repeated his Wimbledon feat with a four-set victory over American Andy Roddick at the All-England club on Sunday but the Swiss organisers will not be repeating their bovine presentation this time around.

Since last year's tournament Federer's cow, who he named Juliette, has given birth to a calf and a spokeswoman for the Gstaad Open said on Monday: "We will not be giving him a cow at the tournament this year.

"Juliette now has a calf and I don't think Roger will need another cow for the moment!"

Federer was rapturously greeted by a capacity crowd in Gstaad after he won Wimbledon in 2003 but went on to lose in the final to Czech Jiri Novak.

Until last year the best Federer had achieved in Gstaad was the second round. He is the number one seed and begins this year's challenge against German Tomas Behrend on Tuesday.

Federer blows into alpine Gstaad for mountain music serenade

GSTAAD, Switzerland, Jul 6 (AFP) - A year after receiving an
800-kilogram Swiss milking cow in honour of a first Wimbledon title,
Roger Federer was Tuesday presented with a traditional
three-metre-long alphorn with which to serenade his bovine friend.
Officials at the Swiss Open tried to outdo themselves as the
double Wimbledon winner returned to his home event following another
resounding trophy success on the grass of the All England club
Sunday.
With millions of dollars in the bank after 17 career titles
including three Grand Slams, there is little that the modest
22-year-old needs or wants to buy.
So the tournament handed over another typically Swiss momento -
an instrument so long that is has to rest partly on the ground -
which he might never have dreamed of purchasing himself.
It all happened during a centre court ceremony at the
high-altitude clay event where Federer is playing as top seed.
Just a few weeks after Swiss cows completed the summer trek from
low winter pastures to the alpine highlands to feed on the sweet
mountain grass, city-boy Federer from Basel was temporarily roped
into the rural ambience of his home nation.
The national sporting idol, clad in t-shirt and jeans, walked
out on court to a standing ovation from proud fans and - putting on
a dark, short-sleeved Swiss herder's gilet - took a trial run on a
huge wooden alphorn.
The musical effect was more than decent, according to the two
professional artists who serenaded the winner with a song before he
had a go himself.
With his cow Juliette - now mother of a calf - described as
"lonely" high up in the fields surrounding the VIP village by emcee
and former Swiss tennis star Heinz Gunthardt, Federer was goaded
into trying to hit a note or two.
"We know you'd never have thought to have bought a cow," said
Gunthardt. "Now, you have an alphorn. Please take it with you over
the next year and practise a bit."
Quipped Federer: "I'm sure they'd just love it when I try and
bring this on board a flight, especially when you try and put it in
the luggage compartment."
Federer tried to describe the emotion as he lifted a second
consecutive title at the All England club 48 hours earlier. "On
match point, my knees got wobbly. I fell backwards on the grass, but
luckily bounced back like a spring."
As for any potential music career, Federer prefers to
concentrate on what he does best. "I think I played piano when I was
a kid, but I gave it up pretty fast."

An alphorn through customs that is almost as funny, when they wanted Marc Rosset to wear red lederhosen to carry the Swiss flag at the Olympics.

I wonder what they'll give him next year if he wins Wimbledon- maybe a 6-ft cuckoo clock or a 2 ton chocolate bar?
