After his big win at the Paris Masters, Roger Federer quickly traveled to Zurich where his friend, Gavin Rossdale, was having a concert. He may have been tired – after winning the tournament and doing media – but he said, “When my friend Gavin gives a concert in Zurich, I have to and I want to go there.”
Observers said there was no head-banging from Federer. “We celebrated a little after the concert, by 1 clock we were back at home,” he said. Late night for the dad of two! When told by press that Rossdale has nine gigs in ten days, Roger responded: ”Fortunately I’m not a rock star.”
Little does he know.
Today, it was back to business for Federer – the chocolate business. He visited the headquarters of Lindt & Sprüngli in Kilchberg and took part in a ceremony presenting the new Lindt Bear. He spoke to reporters after:
On chocolate: “I had always loved chocolate… My two daughters Myla Rose and Charlene Riva also love to have chocolate. But they get very little and only once a day. If they then whine then they will get a kiss instead.”
On Christmas: “I’m not going to Christmas in Switzerland, but I’ll spend it in the heat where I prepare for the new season. But a Christmas tree can be set up anywhere in the world – the important thing is that we’re together as a family. I am very excited also because our two daughters are much more aware of it than last year.”
