Roger Federer attends many extra-tennis events. The Swiss player is very active as he has 11 endorsements, and over the years he stayed next to many important and famous personalities. ‘Ten years ago, I met Donald Trump at a party in New York by Anna Wintour‘, Federer revealed in an interview with Coopzeitung.
I met Vladimir Putin in St. Petersburg at the Laureus Sport Awards, where I was elected World Sportsman in 2008. Suddenly Putin got up and made the rounds to toast everyone. Personally, I did not talk to him personally. I was sit on the table with both (Trump and Putin).’Who are the funniest players to party with? Federer has no doubts: ‘It’s always funny with Stan Wawrinka.
Or with Seve Luthi. When he is ready, he gives full throttle. Whether the other players are party animals, I can not judge. You meet more on the tennis court than on the dance floor.’ He also recalled a funny thing happened many years ago while celebrating his 2005 US Open win.‘I had a problem.
That was not so funny. I only felt fairly normal again on Thursday.’ Federer also commented on other unusual and intriguing topics like who tastes the wine better between him and his wife Mirka. The answer is Mirka. ‘She manages to distinguish flavors very well.
She has a good nose. For me, it’s more like saying: I like or it hasn’t a good taste‘, he admitted.
