Q: What was the last question you didn't expect and what was the question and what did you answer and when? Do you remember?
Roger Federer: Don't know. Maybe one of yours. I don't know.

Q: Are you missing Nadal at this tournament?
Roger Federer: We're not dating, so no.

Q: Talking about legends, in 2003 you managed to beat Pete Sampras at Wimbledon. He was an icon at that time.
Roger Federer: 2001.

Q: You're on the official car this year. How does it feel to see yourself on the move every day?
Roger Federer: I can't sleep at night, it's so amazing, the feeling...

Q: Before you make the challenge there's a picture of two players on the court. Yours was red and black and blurry. It's just not very flattering. Perhaps you could change the quality of the picture?
Roger Federer: [No response]

Q: Is there any chance of getting one of your towels?
Roger Federer: No. We don't have that many. They're for my friends. I don't know you. But good try.

Q: You're still No. 1. That's good.
Roger Federer: Thank you. I'm happy you say so.

Q: Do you still think you can win Roland Garros?
Roger Federer: Yes.

Q: Are you sure?
Roger Federer: Well, if you want me to answer no if that makes you happy, then no. Choose the answer. I said yes.

Q: Imagine it's 2009 and this little fairy comes to you and says, You're going to win one tournament, but you have to choose - Wimbledon or Roland Garros. Which one?
Roger Federer: I don't want to answer these stupid questions any more. They're too stupid.

Q: But why?
Roger Federer: Because I want to win at everything. I have no preference.

Q: So you waited 27 years to win in Paris. You won the US Open, Wimbledon and the Australian Open much earlier. Does it give a special flavor to this trophy?
Roger Federer: First, I never waited 27 years, because 27 years ago I was just born. My parents never told me, If you don't win Roland Garros we take you to the orphanage.

Default Re: If you'd be a journalist, what question would you ask Federer in a presser?

I finally found a serious question to ask. I just went over a chapter in that book by Rene Stauffer, apparently one of the things IMG promised him to sweeten the pot in 2005 was a profit-sharing/equity arrangement. Good chance that Federer might have been given stock in IMG to convince him to sign with them and he gets a big profit if they ever decide to sell. He might possibly own a stake in the corporation right now.

Wow.

This was never confirmed (he was good friends with the former CEO) but this is alluded to in the book. IMG was bought for 750 million dollars and if the investors decide to sell it to the Private Equity firms that have come calling, it will probably be for about 3 billion dollars.

The question I'd ask is how big is that stake he was given in IMG and does it have that rumored profit-sharing arrangement? Even if they gave him 2% of the company, he'd get 60 million should they choose to sell it. Also, the shares in IMG means that he gets a cut of everybody's endorsement money, including Nadal's. That's crazy.
