Roger Federer celebrates his 29th birthday with hockey star Sidney Crosby.

A Happy Birthday to Roger Federer who turns 29 years of age today. Federer will celebrate the day with his family at the Rogers Cup in Toronto.

On his website Federer said, “It is a great feeling to be celebrating my birthday with my family here in Canada. I am excited to compete again these days after having spent several weeks preparing intensely for the second half of the 2010-season. Thank you so much for all your kind messages and wonderful gifts that I have received these past days and continue to receive today. This really motivates me as I can see how much my passion for tennis also means to you. I would like to thank you all for your loyalty over all these years – let’s hope for many more to come!”

As a 28-year-old, Federer won just two titles at the 2009 Cincinnati and the 2010 Australian Open.

Federer is the second oldest player in the current ATP top ten behind fellow 29-year-old Nikolay Davydenko.

After a first round bye, the third-seeded Federer will play his second round match Tuesday evening against either Alejandro Falla or Juan Ignacio Chela.

Federer is a two-time Canadian Open champion winning both titles in Toronto in 2006 and 2004. He lost in the quarterfinals last year to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and in the 2nd RD in 2008 to Gilles Simon.

Fot Says:

Roger does seem very relaxed with the media (which makes no sense that the many in the media try to ‘tear him down’ anytime he remotely does something they don’t agree with).
