Roger Federer may not be winning Grand Slams and ATP titles like he used to, but the Swiss tennis star is becoming more and more of comedian in front of the microphones.
This video is 24 hours late, but Federer was asked Sunday night in Sydney about how he would help his teammate Stanislas Wawrinka cope with having to win one more game in a darkness-suspended fifth and final rubber against Lleyton Hewitt and Australia.
“If Stan wants me to do push-ups to pump him up I’ll do that,” joked Federer. “If he wants me to sleep on the floor of his bedroom, to keep him warm as we’re both missing our children… Whatever he wants me to do. I’ll be here tomorrow – except if he doesn’t want me, if he tells me ‘Go to Bondi Beach and relax, I’ll take care of the rest’”.
Whatever choice Federer made, it worked. Earlier tonight (Monday afternoon in Sydney), Wawrinka did manage to win that one game to successfully close out Hewitt in five sets 46 64 67(7) 64 63 putting Switzerland back into the Davis Cup world grouping next year.
“It’s amazing to be in the same team but for sure in Switzerland it is never easy because it doesn’t matter what I am going to do or which ranking I am going to have because it’s never going to be enough for Swiss people because they always look to Roger – but that’s okay,” Wawrinka said.
