Is Roger Federer the cutest?
This year’s Wimbledon Men’s Champion posed for pictures at the Wimbledon Championships 2012 Winners Ball at the InterContinental Park Lane Hotel last night (July 8th) in London, England. Earlier in the day, Federer clinched his 7th Wimbledon title, beating Scotsman Andy Murray in a match watched by the Duchess of Cambridge, David Beckham and Pippa Middleton, to name a few.
The Swiss man with the adorable smile is heading back to the All England Club for the 2012 Summer Olympics come late July. Today (July 9th) after conducting his interviews, Federer ran into club chairman Philip Brook. ”I’ll see you in a few weeks,” Brook said to Federer, according to USA Today.
“I’ll check in with you when I get back,” Mr. winner replied, smiling. He’ll play for Switzerland in the mens singles, renting a house by the All England Club rather than staying in the athletes’ village.
“I do believe my situation has got that little star next to it. I am now the Wimbledon champion, and I think that gives me even more confidence coming to the Olympics. And maybe in some ways, it maybe takes some ‘pressure,’” Federer said, making air quotes with his hands “off the Olympics, because I already did win at Wimbledon this year. So that’s a good thing for me, because of course there is a lot of hype around me playing at the Olympics this year.”
Did Federer’s three-year-old twin girls take anything away from yesterday’s win? ”I saw them this morning, and they’re playing games. And I was like, ‘Do you remember yesterday?’ And one’s like, ‘No. I don’t.’ I was like, ‘OK, OK.’ And then the other one’s like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I remember clapping,’” Federer told reporters. ”So honestly, I’m not sure what they do remember. … When I won in 2003, never in my wildest dream did I ever think that I was going to win Wimbledon and have my kids seeing me lift the trophy. So this is pretty surreal.”
