Roger also unveiled his look for the 2009 U.S. Open, consisting of bold red and black. His in-game polos are constructed of knit Nike Dri-FIT fabric. The body of the shirt has an embossed dot pattern inspired by the subway signs of New York, and the button placket features Roger’s black RF monogram logo, applied using bonded innovation and laser cut detailing.

It was very funny as both girls had the hiccups while we were trying to take a decent picture. The girls and mom are doing great. Thanks for all your warm wishes.”
Earlier this week, Roger said, “[My wife] Mirka, Myla and Charlene are all doing really well. The baby girls are doing new things every day and are a lot of fun.”

A man wearing a Barcelona shirt and holding a flag disrupted the finals by rushing towards Roger Federer and tried to put a hat on him during the second set in front of stunned spectators at the 2009 French Open on Sunday (June 7), in Paris, France.
“All of a sudden I heard the crowd, and I looked over and he jumped over the fence or something,” Federer said afterward. “That gave me a fright, just, like, seeing him so close right away.” After the incident, Federer, 27, beat Robin Soderling in three sets and now that he has tied Pete Sampras at 14 majors.
“Now the question is, am I the greatest of all time? We don’t know, but I definitely have many things going for me because I’ve finally won all four Grand Slams and I’m particularly happy reaching Pete‘s 14,” he said.
