HAHAHAHA! That's what I was thinking. LOL. First thing that came to my head was 'That's a big stamp...' :P

How many times are we going to see this as an avatar?

Nice stamp, I will use!

He just gets more fabulous, I swear. Fitting that he'd be turned into tangible currency now. :)

Absolutely lovely, they chose one of the best pics of him ever!

The only thing I sometimes worry about is that I hope all the fame won't get to his head... but I know I should not worry about this, as he's managed to stay a rather normal person for so long already! ;)

Thanks for the pics Lilpiper. It is pretty awesome... Federer IS Switzerland's (current) greatest sportsman after all.

A valid concern, and a good point. He must be pretty grounded.

I know that I would have trouble keeping perspective...being gorgeous, talented, rich and adored by millions, where the general rules of behavior don't necessarily apply to me. ;)

:lol: I'm kind of disappointed he didn't just go up to the stamp and kiss his own face. :tape:


(You know he wants to! :devil: :o)


:lol: :lol: That would have been too scandalous for MTF :lol: :lol: The forum would surely crash:p

Seriously, he is looking at the picture with a 1/4 disbelief and 3/4 pride........So sweet. Roger is very deserving of this honor:D

Roger @ the Swiss téléjournal this evening. As he was a child he was not interested in starting a stamp collection... and now he prefers e-mails and internet. He receives everyday about 30 letters with stamps from his fans around the world.

Great honour for Roger :yeah: ! But what about Mirka, doesn't she get one too? She's been around the court for so long.

I wish I lived in Switzerland so that I could too lick Roger's stamp ;)

He looks so sexy in all of those pictures :inlove:

Did Mirka eat the stamp. :D

She might have missed her hourly buffet and got hungry.
