    Halle, Germany: Roger Federer has had his name on the trophy. Now he has it on the street sign as well. The small town of Halle in western Germany hosts the Gerry Weber Open, a grass court tournament that serves as a Wimbledon warm-up.
    Federer has won at Halle five times and has a "lifetime contract" with the tournament — if the Swiss great plays a pre-Wimbledon event, then it is the one in Halle.
    Since the start of May, a street leading to the stadium, known as Weststrasse, is now called the Roger-Federer-Allee.

    They need not worry. There will be a urinal named after Rafa at Roland Garros one of these days:)

    Kleenex should bring out some tissues called "Fedtears 2009" OR "It hurts so much". Without doubt one of the most embarrassing moments in world sport.

    Wow, you are so witty. You should try stand-up comedy.
