While in Shanghai, Roger Federer took time out from the tournament to visit the NBA champion Golden State Warriors who were in the city for an exhibition game.

Federer mingled with star Kevin Durant among others during the special trip.

Federer looks like just another basketball fan standing next to Durant!

And he also ran into Chinese basketball great Yao Ming!

Federer, the lone former champion in Shanghai, begins play on Wednesday in China against the winner of the Diego Schwartzman and Jordan Thompson match.

“Have been practicing for hours on the center court,” Federer said. “Have been kept busy, as well, which gets me into the right mindset, to be quite honest, because I’m here for a reason, here for a purpose, trying to do well, hopefully winning the tournament.

“It’s definitely one of the goals of the season for me here, this tournament. I always make it as a priority that I will be in good shape for Shanghai.”

This looks really cool ….

Humble Rafa Says:

Good thing Skeeze is not here. But the cheese will find his way. GS Warriors + Arrogant One is like Chocolate and his favorite other thing combined.

He is probably looking for someone to take care of his 10 cats.
