PLAYERS: Roger Federer
Peter Schneider/EPA I guess he didn't need another car... The Crédit Agricole Suisse Open Gstaad tournament presented Roger Federer with a cow at a homecoming ceremony yesterday, in a rather weird but wonderful display of Swiss generosity. The cow, named Desiree, is Federer's second cow. He was gifted a cow name Juliette ten years ago, but handed her on to a dairy farmer. There were plenty of awesome pics and tweets of Federer and his new friend. For the record, I LOVED the Western style shirt, jeans and belt that Fed was wearing. I would just kill to see him in some cowboy boots too!
