The Swiss soccer team's Mr Motivator, also known as Roger Federer, is hoping Alejandro Falla does not turn out to be an awkard first round opponent at Wimbledon on Monday.
In line with Wimbledon tradition, the champion will begin his pursuit of a record-equalling seventh men's crown at 1400 local time, but that means Roger Federer will have to miss some or all of Switzerland's World Cup match against Chile. Federer was recently invited to give the Swiss team a pep talk and despite his vested interest in what happens on the pitch in South Afirca, on Monday he will be totally focussed onthe lush green lawns of Wimbledon.
Roger Federer, defending Wimbledon Champion said, "You think I'll just like leave the court at 3:00? No, that's not going to happen quite yet. Maybe I can install a little screen on the Centre Court on the change of ends. No, it's happened in the past that I've had to play in matches during important things in my life. You know, kind of I went on court last year many times thinking that Mirka was going to give birth to my children. So that was a bit more, you know, bit more crazy than Switzerland playing at 3 p.m."
