Will Ferrell's bizarre interview of Roger Federer

Adjust Comment Print

It's not entirely sure why Ferrell is in Australia (vacation aside), however it has been reported his production company is working alongside local SVOD provider STAN on a related project. Djokovic tweaked his service motion while recovering from an injured right elbow, and used it to good effect in a 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 win over Donald Young. Of course, I was thinking about it as it was my favourite tournament of the year by far.

What he found tough on Tuesday was to rally with Will Ferrell in the post-match on-court interview. But I need to be still positive. "It's been a couple of years since I've been back here - obviously I wanted to enjoy the moment", the 2008 Australian Open champion said after blowing kisses to the crowd.

"I played ideal tennis". That's a big step for me. "I felt like sometimes we overdo it".

The 19-time Grand Slam victor chuckles, "Maybe".

"My plan is to leave here and go back to practice, especially fitness-wise at the beginning", Wawrinka said of his future plans. "That was fun. I haven't met him a lot, to be honest". I was really excited to play.

Speaking after his straight sets second round victory over Jan-Lennard Struff, Federer was keen to distance himself from the debate, but did offer his opinion when asked.

Fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev overcame a mid-match lull to advance to the third round with a 6-1 6-3 4-6 6-3 win over fellow German Peter Gojowczyk and will now face a next generation clash with South Korean talent Chung Hyeon following his 7-6 (7-4) 6-1 6-1 success over Daniil Medvedev of Russian Federation. "Doesn't mean it's going to go in, but I have - yeah, I don't have much of a backhand".

Kerber: 'Sharapova? This is the kind of match I want to have'
Sharapova, playing only her second grand slam since returning from her doping suspension, took it on the chin. The Swiss star beat the Frenchman 6-2, 7-5, 6-4 in just under two hours in a night match on Rod Laver Arena .

Roger Federer has answered numerous probing questions throughout his successful career - but it's safe to say, none have been as weird as those he faced on Tuesday night.

"My dog doesn't even realise who I am, so, you know, nothing changes at home".

"There's maybe 60 guys asking for different things and I'm one of them", he said with a sheepish grin.

This year's Australian Open has been played under the shadow of the controversy surrounding the naming of the Margaret Court Arena.

The Swiss champ is coming off an extraordinary 2017, when he won a fifth Australian Open title and a record eighth at Wimbledon, after returning from an injury lay-off.

"It was nice to have Hollywood present here in Melbourne in combination with tennis".
