Shocking! Roger Federer had lunch with Tiger Wood’s wife, Elin Nordegren! Oh, and Mirka, Charlene, Myla and Charlie, Noredgren’s little boy. Lunch, people. We all know what happens at lunch. Iced tea!

Is Elin finding any Solace? Roger!
As serial sex addict Tiger Woods prepared to break his golf hiatus at the Masters, his scorned wife was breaking bread with another sports great yesterday.
Elin Nordegren lunched with tennis ace Roger Federer, 28, and his wife, Mirka, in Miami.
The Federers, who brought their twin girls, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, are in the Sunshine State for the Sony Ericsson Open, which kicks off tomorrow Nordegren brought her 1-year-old cub, Charlie.
The group dined poolside in the shade at an exclusive hotel on posh Key Biscayne.
Oh, well, considering this piece was posted today, and the tournament is ending today (not “kicking off tomorrow”), I’d say the paper got at least one key fact wrong. And it’s annoying to me that a woman with a cheating husband can’t have lunch with her friends without it being called “solace.” Or is that a new term for the meal that comes after brunch but before lunch? Let’s go grab some solace, guys. Bloody Marys are on me.
Here’s another version from Hollywood Life, titled: “Roger Federer, Are You Trying to Convince Elin to Take Back Your Good Friend Tiger?”
Elin had lunch with Roger & his wife April 3 in Miami — and I’ve got a feeling Tiger was the main topic of conversation.
Who better for Elin Nordegren to talk out her Tiger Woods issues with than close friends of the family? That’s just what she did as she sat down for a cozy lunch with Tiger’s longtime friend, tennis pro Roger Federer, and his wife Mirka Vavrinec. Back in January, while many of Tiger’s mistresses were still coming out of the woodwork, Roger confessed that he’d been in touch with Tiger over the phone. “Tiger needs calm,” Roger said at the time. “And soon he’ll become the wonderful golfer that we know again.”
So it’s clear Roger’s heart goes out to Elin and Tiger, and that he really does see the good in his longtime friend. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if he tried to convince Elin to take Tiger back. As a married man with two kids of his own, I’m sure he just wants to see everything go back to normal.
Regardless of the conversation, it must have been nice for Elin just to have lunch with her good friends at a fancy hotel. Photographers at the Sony Ericsson Open, which is near the hotel where Elin and her friends lunched, say they even saw little 18-month-old Charlie Woods swinging around a Nike tennis racquet, which was reportedly a gift from Roger. Could Elin have a little athlete-in-training on her hands?
Ha! Could you really imagine Roger giving Elin marriage advice? He’s Swiss for goodness sake! And as for a Nike tennis racquet. . .doubtful.
We do know that Elin and her son enjoyed watching the Roddick vs. Nadal semi on Friday. I just think it’s cool to see her having a fun time with her kid:
