Roger Federer is the king of tennis but when it comes to hockey he needs some help. The Swiss star traded in his tennis racquet for a hockey stick during a special promotion at the Toronto Masters this afternoon on center court.

And in a special shootout portion of the event, Federer tried not once, not twice but three times to score a psuedo penalty shot but was denied each time. (You would think by the third they’d let him score!)

Federer was joined on the makeshift center court rink by Nenad Zimonjic, Radek Stepanek, Jack Sock and a few other players in this event which pit the tennis players against several stars from the Toronto Maple Leafs. And during the actual “ball hockey” game Federer did score in the final the seconds.

“It’s great fun doing this kind of stuff,” said Federer. “Getting hockey and tennis together on a centre court that they built specially; I think is great. I had a lot of fun meeting all the guys. They’re so relaxed.

“I’ve always been a big hockey fan. I can’t skate at all actually. I can’t stop so I have to go in circles. I used to play a little bit of uni-hockey, we call it in Europe. That’s what I did for warm-ups in tennis back in the day. I’ve always collected NHL jerseys; I’ve got a nice collection so far.”
