not sure if I am for this move hope the exhibition wont leave him too exhausted for the Aussie tournaments! The 5 year deal is of course curious, no way he will play pro for that long.

Yesterday Roger said in the press conference that he is flying to Tokyo. I don't know.
Hes going to Japan just before a huge typhoon is about to reach Japan?
Thats crazy.

Another side note on Federer. When asked if he ever got a point penalty he said yes. Along time ago.
Most living people didnt know this only Federer to set the record straight.

Federer landed in Argentina on Monday, but the first exhibition event was actually in Santiago, Chile, on Tuesday (November 19).
Here's Roger and A. Zverev at a kids' tennis clinic


With retired Chilean player (and AO 2007 finalist) Fernando Gonzales:


Here's a clip of match point:

Apparently Roger won 6-3, 4-6, 6-4. :)

Ha ha, same for me, I though it was just Zverev, then saw a comment about how they were both in the pic, so had to look for Roger! :D

So Zverev got some revenge and won the Argentina match 7-6, 7-6 last night (Wednesday, Nov 20)..

Some pics from Roger playing with kids in Argentina :)



Of course, Del Po was originally supposed to be the opponent but he's not ready to play yet... so he's there as a host.



Tonight is apparently a night off. Federer & Zverev will play in Bogota, Colombia on Friday (11/22); then in Mexico City on Saturday (11/23) and Quito, Ecuador on Sunday (11/24).
