Somebody get Roger Federer a friend! Federer landed in Sydney yesterday and snapped this facebook picture of himself in front of the “Welcome to Sydney” sign. The surroundings and colors in the picture just look depressing and desolate, and Federer looks like a guy in need of a friend. Can you blame him?
After squandering two match points for the second straight year to Novak Djokovic on Saturday in the US Open semifinals, Federer flew to Australia to compete on Switzerland’s Davis Cup tie this weekend against the Aussies.
“After a long flight, I’m feeling pretty good,” Federer told the Sydney Morning Herald.
”Usually we never have that much time to get used to the grass anyway, that’s how we have to deal with it every year for the grass season,” Federer said. ”It wasn’t centre court now so I don’t know how that plays, so we’ll see how it goes tomorrow.”
Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka will take on Lleyton Hewitt and Bernard Tomic on the grass in Sydney. The winner will advance to the 2012 World Ground. Federer needs to play the tie to earn a spot in the 2012 Olympics which require all participants to have played Davis Cup.
