Roger Federer didn’t play a match on Sunday, but he was still working at the Sony Ericsson Open. He was busy signing autographs at the “Art of Shaving” tent for his sponsor Gillette:

Via the Miami Herald:
Federer, the consummate company man, had an appearance at the Art of Shaving tent on the tournament’s grounds.
Art of Shaving is a sister company of Gillette, which pays him a king’s ransom to hock its goods.
This week, the company’s tent is offering a $20 hot-towel shave, with the proceeds going to the Roger Federer Foundation.
So if I paid Roger twenty bucks would he shave my legs for me? Oh, uh, forget I typed that. . .
Anyway, I thought these photos from the signing event were pretty funny, as they represent the various kinds of Roger Fan-dom.
Enterprising kid: “Hey Roger, you’re the best. Do you mind signing the hat and the cap, too? I wouldn’t normally sell this stuff on ebay but I think my parents cleaned out my college fund.”
Fed Fanatic: “Look, Roger, I Photoshopped your face onto my husband’s body!”
And this, quite simply, is me. Not me, literally, but an exact representation of how I would look and behave in this situation. “Uhhhhhhhhh. . . . .”
Roger Federer plays Florent Serra in the third round on Monday afternoon.
