20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer revealed he likes to sing while driving in his car even though singing is not his greatest strength. Recently, Federer starred alongside Hollywood star Anne Hathaway for a Swiss Tourism ad.
This week, Federer posted parts from what was happening behind the scenes while and Hathaway were shooting an ad. One of the questions Hathaway asked Federer was what he listens to when on a roadtrip. "I sing in the car when I travel, but badly.
I like to listen to Queen, Bon Jovi, Roxette -- a Swedish band," Federer said. "Backstreet boys, because why not? I think that's a singalong right there. A little bit of Britney Spears [too], I remember teaching my kiddies."
Federer signs up for Basel
This week, Federer fans received great news as the Swiss has been confirmed as a Basel participant.
Just before Federer signed up for Basel, Marcos Baghdatis spoke about the greatness of Federer. If you remember well, Baghdatis reached his maiden Grand Slam final at the 2006 Australian Open. Baghdatis was enjoying a great Australian Open but he didn't have an answer for Federer in the final.
“Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic dominated the tour for more than a decade and a half, not to mention the great Andy Murray. In my day, to win a Slam, you had to beat at least one or two of these monsters.
There were so many talented guys who could have won a major. We think of Jo‐Wilfried Tsonga, Gaël Monfils, Kei Nishikori, David Ferrer and Tomas Berdych, while Marin Cilic managed to seize his chance at the US Open 2014.
The players I mentioned were not in able to win just one Grand Slam because of the Big 3. Murray himself has lost many semi‐finals and finals against them," Baghdatis said during his appearance on the Tennis.com podcast.
