Video: Elegant Roger Federer has first practice at Melbourne Park as he preps for Australian Open
I’m going to indulge in a few more tennis posts in the coming weeks because it’s almost Australian Open time and, well, I love tennis! Did any of you know that for awhile at least, I did a tennis blog for the LA Daily News called Deuce?
It was a blast but had to abandon it because I got too busy. So I’ve just peppered my blogs ever since with tennis here. Lots of gay men love tennis, all you have to do is go to a tournament and you will see us everywhere!
You will likely see us at Roger Federer matches in droves because we love his quiet elegance.
He might be my favorite male player of all time edging out Stefan Edberg who has just signed on as his coach!
Anyway, Roger is in Melbourne preparing to try and win the Australian Open for the fifth time. Ranked number 5 now, he has struggled mightily since winning Wimbledon in 2012 and reclaiming the number one ranking.
He could have retired then and there and literally gone out on top. But at 32, Roger still loves to play the game and as you can see in this video, he looks awfully good playing it.
