After yesterday’s Andy Murray hair-cutting routine, much of the talk in the tennis world today has centered around Roger Federer’s new beard. Since showing up for the ATP Finals unshaven, Federer has won all three matches this week culminating with a three set with today over Kei Nishikori to finish the round-robin 3-0.

So with all the success, will Federer keep the beard?

“Don’t know yet,” Federer said earlier today. “If it itches too much, I’ll take it off. If my girls can’t stand it, I’ll take it off. If I look in the mirror and I don’t like it, I’ll take it off. Maybe I’ll think of Santa and keep it. It’s around the corner. I don’t know yet.”

Mirka does like it, tough. “She’s fine with it,” he said. “I mean, yeah, she’s okay, I guess. I do make decision by myself sometimes.”

Federer and perhaps his beard return to play Saturday in London where he’ll face the Andy Murray-Stan Wawrinka in the semifinals.

So, it is like your backhand. It has no idea where it goes until it goes. I get it.

Bearderer needs to stay forever.


skeezer Says:

Yep. Keep it Mr. Bond. And you should switch to an Armani suit with vest when you play, thin neck tie. have the ball boys/ladies bring you a Martini every 3 games when you sit. You know… a little refresher never hurt anyone, yes? Keep the olives coming…..
Master Class.


RF Says:

Federer: the epitome of awesomeness. He is the most interesting man in the world.

I’m casting my vote to keep it. I love the scruffy look……but he is right, little kids don’t like a beard or a moustache…..I think it looks good on him….even if he can think for himself!!! lol
