For you Roger Federer tennis fans, here’s a great video feature with the former No. 1.

Pedro Pinto of CNN’s Open Court spoke with Federer for a special interview and behind-the-scenes peek on the day of his charity match with his Rafael Nadal in Zurich, Switzerland, last month.

Roger touches on topics including life in Switzerland, the twins (changing diapers), his charity interests, how he got Nadal to play in the exhibitions, his friendship with Rafa, the media scrutiny he faces when he loses and his confidence for the Australian Open.

Hint: He sounds confident!

Federer, the defending champ, will be seeded at No. 2 behind Nadal at the Australian Open where the Swiss last won a Slam. The draw is scheduled for release in three hours at 7pm ET.

i read that Rogers coach has said he will win 20 slams…ha ha ha…what a joke….Fed ending his career with 20 slams..this is the biggest joke i have heard in years. With the way he has been playing he should have at least 22.
