We are watching The GOAT in action @ The 2018 Indian Wells • BNP Paribas Tennis Open…

 

Interesting that I find myself only watching him. I’m not doing the head back and forth.

I’m just staring at Roger. My eyes are glued to him. The finesse. His balance. His accelerating into the ball. His smooth strokes. That backhand. The forehand. His reflexes at his age….

 

It’s awesome to see his Mother and Father enjoying each match. Mirka, his wife and “rock”, looks gorgeous. She has dropped the baby weight after two sets of twins.

 

Mirka’s constant support of Roger is what allows him to still perform at this level all these years, it helped getting him back to number one. ️

 

Maybe “numero uno” was also due to ROGER’S attending the 2017 OSCARS in HOLLYWOOD? While walking the red carpet he had a tequila shot on a silver tray. The man serving the “shots” said to RF for number one. RF said ok for number 1!

 

Roger was wearing an amazing tuxedo during the Met Gala last year. I think it was Gucci? All I remember is it had a COBRA on the back in rhinestones. Carroll Shelby would sure have been proud to see that. Shelby thought tennis was ok as sports go. But he knew genius when he saw it. He admired the mighty Federer.

We all do!
