roger federer: vogue magazine’s cover story


As you may already know, the latest issue of Men’s Vogue has a great profile of Roger Federer by writer Tim Adams.

Nothing out of the ordinary: Adams talks about Roger’s transformation from tempermental juniors player to zen master (yawn), him being possibly the greatest of all time (double yawn), and his friendship with Tiger Woods (zzZzzzZzz).

What’s interesting is Roger’s relationship with the emirate of Dubai, which — although boo because it perpetuates an unsustainable, lavish desert lifestyle (but really, when God gives you oil, you build islands) — is one of the more interesting and beautiful places in the world, if at least architecturally.

And the story also covers his relationship with girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec, the woman who acts as his personal assistant, fashion guide, companion. How sweet and refreshing to see such a strong bond, especially since womanizing was commonplace the last time tennis players were rock stars.

The photos accompanying the article are here. My favorite:

Enjoy the article!
