Default Federer's bag.

I noticed that he always carries two bags to the court. One is the necessary Wilson racquet bag, and the other one is some unknown (presumably Nike) bag that probably is not necessary to play tennis.

I wonder what is in that big bag? He is the only male player to do this, and I don't think he can't complete a match without that bag. For me, it is kind of annoying, because it's weird to see a guy to carry a bag like that (usually, only women carry fancy bags, no?).

I know Sharapova / Williams carry extra fancy bag to the court, but for a guy, is it worth the hassle to carry another big bag to the court??

I don't like it. Can't he just keep everything simple like Sampras?

Default Re: Federer's bag.

I don't think the o.p watches a lot of tennis because some other players do. It's usually a contract from the racket and apparel sponsors. It's not unique to Fed this 2 bag thing.

His collection of Voodoo Dolls, no doubt about that.

Yes, because it's fabulous. Deal with it.

He carries a Mini-Mirka and if he makes mini-Mirka angry then she causes boils on his face.

It's been explained already...

Default Re: Federer's bag.

Why can't u not be rude or sarcastic in your replies? The thread opener is just curious and hasn't watche much tennis. Why can't we gve each other the benifit of the doubt? No one needs to answer me, because I know that on GM rudeness and sarcasm rules. This kind of attitude is chasing lot of people away from posting. Where I live people are polite and even if u accidentally bump into someone they smile back if you smile at them. It's really a shame.

Nah, mini-Mirka is carried inside Mirka's body, which explains her physique.

He has a sackful of bagels. You see, in 2005/06 he gave them out far too much to players ranked 5 and over, so these days.. he keeps them in check. Gives them out time to time.

Ali, I think you are overreacting for a bit, here. Nobody is actually insulting the OP, but it isn't that far off to make a bit of fun of this post over here - of course nobody knows what Feds is carrying along in that bag, as it's most obviously his private property...

True - and we've had the serious answers so time to be silly
