Roger Federer is King Arthur

Tennis champ Roger Federer portrays King Arthur in this Annie Leibovitz creation. The image is one of three unveiled today to celebrate Disney Parks’ “Year of a Million Dreams.” Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida commissioned Leibovitz to create images featuring international celebrities in fairy tale settings.

Federer is currently ranked World No. 1 since February 2, 2004 for a record 196 consecutive weeks.

    So I picked up my tennis racket the other day and decided I wanted to prepare for a tournament. I’ve been doing pretty well, one of the biggest problems is that my cardio is pretty bad! Do you have any advice for ways that I could improve it? I’m looking for something more than just jogging, any ideas would help.
