On Tuesday, Roger Federer paid a special visit to the Zurich office of one of his sponsors, Credit Suisse. 6,500 employees at the bank’s Uetlihof office were treated the visit, where Roger served a few balls, had lunch with the staff in the cafeteria, visited the trading floor, held an autograph session and gave an interview. Not a bad day at the office!

It was a fun day on the golf course at the Masters in Augusta, Georgia where the pros and a chosen partner took part in the par three competition on Wednesday. It was a funky day for Caroline Wozniacki, who looked to have dyed her hair pink for the event that she participated in with fiancee Rory McIlroy. Love that it matches her shoes, but will love it even more if it washes out.

Djokovic Shows Off Practice Partner Pup

Novak Djokovic is known for his unique training but on Tuesday, the video he posted to YouTube of his practice in Monte Carlo showed just how different he gets. Watch:

Ok, Novak really practiced with Alex Dolgopolov, not his dog, Tesla. But Tesla (and Pierre) have clearly been helping Nole stay fit. The dogs helped their owners during a little yoga session last weekend.

Fashion Focus: Ivanovic, Murray Roland Garros Kits

Adidas is the official clothing sponsor of Roland Garros so it’s no doubt they want their pros to look perfect at the Grand Slam on red clay.

Ana Ivanovic Adidas

Ana Ivanovic will wear the Adidas Roland Garros 2014 Dress. Ana will likely wear the lightweight dress in night blue, but it also comes in light lime. Blue is a great color for Ana and I love the neon color detailing on the mesh back.

Andy Murray will keep tradition with the Adidas Barricade Semi-Fit Tee, but this time in earth green. The top obviously works for him so there’s no reason to branch out except for in color, and army green will likely look great on him.

Federer Graces Schweizer-Illustrierte Cover

Roger Federer

After a big Davis Cup win on Sunday, Roger Federer graces the cover of Schweizer-Illustrierte Swiss magazine. Speaking about his resurgence to the interviewer in Geneva, Roger said (translated): “I do not need the victory to be happy.”

Well Roger seems to be back on track this year but as his ranking rises, he also gets closer to welcoming a new baby (or babies?). He told the magazine that his twins, Myla and Charlene, play tennis “but really only if the weather is right,” and that they also try other sports like skiing.

The magazine’s current issue is in kiosks now.

Spacey Admits To Murray Groupie Status

Andy Murray Kevin Spacey

In the April 11 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine, actor Kevin Spacey had a lot to say about his fandom for Andy Murray. The self-described Murray “groupie” apparently scheduled the interview around Andy’s third-round match at Indian Wells and, as the article states, he didn’t “intend to miss a point.”

It goes on to say that Spacey has crisscrossed the globe during the past two-plus years to watch Murray play more than a dozen times. And for this mid-March tournament, Spacey rented a house nearby, alternating between watching Murray play and working on his own game with a pair of professional coaches.”

Why Murray for the House of Cards star? His athleticism, his drive and the fact that he’s British, said Spacey.

After arriving to Indian Wells with the interviewer, Spacey “has been told that a seat in Murray’s box, where he has sat before, isn’t available because Murray’s coach, girlfriend and hitting partners are in it; but he’s offered the next best thing, Box 117, close enough to make eye contact, if ever Murray were to break focus. ‘I’ve often thought about whispering to him, ‘Keyser Soze is behind you,’ jokes Spacey, referring to the villain character in the 1995 thriller The Usual Suspects who won him his first Oscar. At least I think he’s joking. The delivery is so deadpan, it’s hard to be sure.”

The article goes on to say: “‘Come on,’ he bellows from his courtside seat, clapping hard every time Murray hits a winner — and groaning each time he doesn’t. He microanalyzes Murray’s game as though it were a character he was considering playing. Before the match is over, Spacey has one of his two coaches, Keith, who used to hit with Murray, push back his flight to Miami so that the two can squeeze in more practice. ‘Kevin doesn’t half-ass anything,’ his producing partner Dana Brunetti will tell me later. ‘Once he gets into something — working out, learning to play a musical instrument — he goes into it full bore. So, he’s always been a fan of tennis, but lately it’s become an obsession.’”

So to sum up: Mr. Spacey is obsessed with tennis. He’s a Brit. So naturally he’s obsessed with Andy Murray.
