Really, there can never be too much of a good thing, especially when we’re talking about Roger Federer and Rod Laver together, like two peas in a bright yellow tennis pod. The Fed Express and The Rocket have spent quite a bit of time together before this year’s Australian Open. It’s a mutual admiration society that we all get to take part in!
Roger and Rod attended a fancy dinner at the Brisbane International last week and were treated to “Federer vs. Laver in verse.” Just slightly over the top. Roger’s expression cracks me up.
Federer and Laver were then interviewed on how they would play one another:
Sticking close, the two rallied together at this week’s “And Evening with Roger and Federer & Friends” exhibition in Melbourne. I got the shivers watching Rod Laver walking into his namesake arena! And I love how he rushed the net.
Roger so wanted to cry on Rod’s shoulder at the end of that.
Here’s the reference, in case you forgot.
(Really, how could anyone forget this Roger moment at the 2006 Australian Open final – it’s just one of my all time favorites!)
