Happy 32nd Birthday Roger Federer
« on: August 08, 2013, 06:54:35 AM »
Happy B'day Roger Federer !!
Roger Federer turns 32 today but when he made his ‪‎DavisCup‬ debut in 1999 who would have guessed that he would go on to become the most successful male tennis player of all time?

Incase, you've been living under a surprisingly large rock : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Federer



Pour your B'day wishes for the king here !!
:king: :)) :)) :))

Federer is currently practising at cincinnati. Here's a recent pic :

This probably needs a new thread. This is amazing.


In case you've been living under a rock of late, witness here the account one fan shares at Mashable.com about her experience meeting and speaking with one Roger Federer.

The greatest player in men's tennis history is certainly experiencing travails of his his own recently on the tennis court, having been smote by an array of the ATP World Tour's relative character actors. But his career follies in 2013—yea, most all of our shortcomings—pale in comparison to those of Beatriz Tinoco, a 17-year-old Maryland resident who, if you didn't get acquainted with her in the past six days, you simply must do so now.

It's no wonder that Federer, famously christened at one point the most respected and trusted person in the world save Nelson Mandela, would operate in this way with a vulnerable but yearning young fan. It's a gorgeous story, and judging by the response that Mashable has had to this feature, this marks one of those times when the denizens of social media got it right. This is a tale that deserves to spread like the wind. Beatriz deserves it.

So this is why Haas retired yesterday, so he can have some of that b-day cake. He can't be late for that dinner party!  ..-)


Happy B-day to Fed ;-()

A lot of tennis reporters and newspapers have been re-tweeting this story.  It's a very good story for those who say Roger is such a bad person and is bad for tennis.  Maybe if they take the time to "read" the story, they will see a different side of Roger.  The side the players evidently already know since they have voted him Sportsmanship for a hundred times! :rofl_2:

It's an amazing story! I never heard of it until just now. Well, you can fake pretend to like someone, you can fake pretend you are down right a nice guy, but for everybody who has seen or read about this "Grant a wish" foundation know that 1 out of 1000 celebrities go through all that trouble for a fan. Anyway, I am glad this girl shared her experience and let the world know how Federer behaves outside the court.

Happy birthday Rog!!!!
