Roger Federer is back in Switzerland where former No. 1 took some time to visit some children for the “Winterhilfe” charity.

Federer met with 22 children in the LINDT Chocolateria in Kilchberg near Zurich where they turned into Mini Master Chocolatiers and created their own chocolates.

After a disappointing loss a week ago in Shanghai, Federer will be back on the courts next week in Basel.

Federer also donned on a bow tie for an upcoming Jura spot:

And the ATP just released a new video profile of Roger:

Im not really one for celebrities who promote charities or foundations,and before im attacked its nothing to do with Roger,as i have said the same thing about Novak,and i would say the same thing about Rafa and Andy too,however i did enjoy those videos of Roger seeing those little kids making the chocolates,and i have to say Lindt chocolates are loverly,really smooth totally orgasmic.

madmax Says:



Great to see that Roger is still so motivated. The guy has faced a helluva lot of criticism this year, and rightly so in one way.

He has had a lot of time off – got criticised for that, but I think in the long run, he wanted to maintain at least an equilibrium in his tennis, just didnt work out that way, he fell way below his talents.

Now though, as we look ahead to London, will he qualify? I really, really hope so. Haven’t looked at his points (daren’t), and know that he has an outside chance of qualifying. So I cross my fingers for him to do so. I have seen him play twice there at the O2 and what a fantastic time that was!

However, I look forward to the year, 2014, with few points to defend and nothing to lose, I really hope the best for Roger and hope that he gets a break from the, “Will he or Won’t he retire?”, media circus.

Simon Reed wrote something just about now and I notice his friend, Paul Newman has given a video interview on the state of play of Roger. A journalist of his calibre and expertise, his comments are definitely worth noting.

Madmax as i have already said i would say the same thing about any tennis player,sportsperson or otherwise,celebrities promoting charities is all very nice and noteworthy,but its not something i care to make a big deal,in fact i find the whole thing quite irritating,i only have interest in what they do on a tennis court,anything else i dont care much about, lets just say you have your opinion and i have mine,great to see hes still so motivated,and great that hes spending his time raising awareness for the greater good of mankind,but its not something i care to make a big deal about,sorry no offence.

TXHC, have you tried these new caramel Lindt truffles?

They were handing out samples at the Montreal Masters this year. Amazing!!!


gannu Says:

This is a good article which also talks abt federer;s responsibility as a tennis statesman and so many things that he needs to do..He is also the head of ATP player council plus so many sponsorship demands plus married and a father of 4yr old twins …too much on his plate and everything takes a toll…he needs to balance well…Madmax – this is for you ;-)

Tennis X Hippy Chic Says:

Hawkeye i love Lindt chocolates,any Lindt chocolates thanks.

Margot Says:

Lol hawkeye, I’ve only just met that wonderful word “humblebrag.” On the “Guardian” “Gr8 British Bake Off” blog no less.
As in, “I’m so hopeless at baking, I’m shocked that this complete ruination of an Opera cake …actually won the bake off.”
Or tennis wise, “I was playing so dreadfully for the whole match, I was really aghast to win!”
Lol, as I’m typing that I can hear Gulbis saying it, a little more fruitily of course….

hawkeye Says:

Margot, haha, or when a certain player was paying tribute to James Blake when he announced his retirement recently reminisced:

“I’ve had some good matches against him, maybe the biggest matches of his career!”

hawkeye Says:

Or on His Wimby loss to Berdych said, “I wasn’t surprised (by the loss) but people were saying ‘How are we going to survive a Wimbledon final without you?'”

Alex Says:

OMG I want that coffee machine!
