Despite a back injury and a shaky opening 5-set win over Frances Tiafoe, Roger Federer opted to avoid a packed Wednesday schedule at the US Open and instead show up unannounced for a practice session on the public courts at Central Park!
Imagine Lebron James showing up at your local basketball court, Lionel Messi coming by for a pick-up soccer game at the park or Taylor Swift appearing at Karaoke night at your local bar or restaurant.
They have never done that. But that’s what Federer just did. That’s why Federer is so beloved.

We’ll see if the session paid off. Federer takes on 2-time US Open semifinal Mikhail Youzhny this afternoon. He’s 16-0 against the Russian.
