Oh, poor Roger! The man just can’t get a break (and I’m not talking about the Wimbledon final.) This from India Target:
The story goes that Federer, who is in Toronto for the on-going Rogers Cup, arrived at Hilton Toronto on July 18, expecting to be given his favourite suite, unofficially known as the ‘Federer Suite’. To date, he has always been given the suite.
But to his surprise, he discovered that his suite had been allotted to Bollywood stars Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai who were also in Toronto for The Unforgettable tour.
Abhishek and Aishwarya had checked into Hilton Toronto on July 16. Says a source from Wizcraft International, organiser of The Unforgettable tour, “The local promoter, Moe Jivani, insisted that Abhishek and Aishwarya be given Roger Federer’s suite. Naturally, Hilton Toronto officials told him that it was reserved for Federer.But Jivani insisted and finally the Hilton Toronto officials relented.”
Meanwhile, Federer arrived at Hilton Toronto on July 18. He was disappointed to find his suite occupied and tried to argue with the hotel authorities about getting it, but his efforts went in vain. The hotel authorities politely refused to give him his favourite suite.
Aishwarya and Abhishek stayed in Hilton Toronto till July 19. Federer had to stay in another suite until then.
