    cool interview, players laughing, joking around instead of the common serious somewhat conditioned responses most players are told to do.

    Nice. Lina could probably compete with Federer in backhand crosscourt rallies started with an underhand feed, lol.

    With that Federer will probably win a few billion fans in China (if he hasn;t already) to the extreme dismay of the Nasal fan base. Waiting for them to hit back. :D :D

    @sureshs, what's yer response,dude ????
    @ksbh must be hunting for some SD pics to post in response,lol.

    Nice to watch this. Much more enjoyable than seeing players answer questions about how their game is and how they feel about next opponent. "I feel good right now and just going to play my game and not worry about the opponent or what they do just focus on my side of the net."

    It's punishing to listen to players say that quote, absolutely punishing.

    "I definitely think I had a lot of talent as a kid"-Federer.I think this statement warrants a separate thread and further analysis.

    As far as personality goes Li Na's numero uno for me at the moment,her interviews at AO this year were hilarious.Not that she isn't great looking as well,her hubby is a lucky man.

    All the girls on the WTA tour act that way in front of Federer (aka "The Great One"). :)

    I don't think Federer will be able to compete with Li Na in cross court backhand rallies with his weak backhand.

    Just watch any WTA player around Federer or Nadal. Hell, just watch any girl around Federer or Nadal. You'll see what you did there. ;)

    LOL, all the girls are weak knees, starry eyed and gushy in front of Roger, some TV interview with Fed before the exo with Pete in Seoul or KL, the interviewer was some brunette from Oz and Fed was working his considerable charm on her and she was so completely into him it was plainly obvious and Fed pretends not to notice and starts talking about Mirka and this woman goes completely green ....

    Anyway, Li's own favourite player is supposedly Agassi.

    This is almost universally true.
    I've only got a small sampling here in my circle, but....

    My wife (a beautiful young woman) thinks the world of RF.
    A teaching pro (26 and hot) at my club gushes whenever RF is on the TV.
    My wife's hottest friend who dates a pro golfer gets all weak-kneed when RF's name comes up.
    Most of the older ladies at the club love Rog, too.

    Rafa enjoys similar status among fine ladies.

    Yes, because Li Na has a better crosscourt backhand than Djokovic, Murray, and Safin. :???:

    Ah, to be Fed. He could literally make any girl's panties drop. I mean if the money and fame aren't working, he can turn on the old charm.

    Fed and Li Na to play mixed dubs? :p

    Why do people make such a big deal out of being able to speak Chinese?

    I am proud of the same specie-woman.

    Comments...

    Women tend to date mature men with a decent job. I think RF fits that frame.

    Hhaha, it's like hors d'oeuvre at a party. You have got to just sample the hot ones.

    EDIT:
    and back on topic.....I'm laughing that it was an appearance linked to Li Na joining Rog as an ambassador for Mercedes Benz and their cheaply made luxury cars. That really could have looked and felt forced, but both of them looked very genuine and sincere. She is delightful. He's a mensch. And now, they drive d0chetastic automobiles.

    It's funny how they're the same age, but Federer is like a rock star and Lina a little fangirl giggling.
