Will Ferrell Conducts Hilarious Interview With Roger Federer After Aussie Open Win

AFTER schooling his rivals on court for years, now Roger Federer is advising his "robotic" peers to present themselves better off court.

"I had a lot of frequent flyer miles and I needed to get rid of them".

Federer says the key to staying fresh in the face of thousands of monotonous questions is not returning serve with answers about backhands and forehands.

The sportsman struggled to contain his laughter as he was quizzed about everything from his "ageless" appearance to his "gazelle-like" playing by Anchorman actor Will Ferrell, 50.

Any player hoping to stop him retaining his crown and claiming a record 20th Grand Slam title will have to be pretty special on this evidence. Djokovic tweaked his service motion while recovering from an injured right elbow, and used it to good effect in a 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 win over Donald Young.

"A month ago I didn't know if I was going to come to Australia or not because the elbow was still not prepared for this level of competition", said Djokovic, who knelt down and kissed the court on Margaret Court Arena after sealing victory. Love the guy. It was a fun interview, I thought. Barty, the world No. 19, prevailed, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4 against Belarusian Sabalenka.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said he was also keeping a close watch on rescue operations. "Several casualties reported. As many as fifteen fire tenders rushed to the spot and brought the fire under control, rescue operations are still underway.


Jim Courier post-match interviews are mostly fun.

"I'm hoping for it to go well again, I'm not sure it can go this well because a year ago was so good".

Halep staved off two set points before beating the 17-year-old Australian 7-6 (7-5), 6-1.

The temperatures may be soaring in Melbourne but Roger Federer looked coolness personified as he eased past Jan-Lennard Struff in the second round of the Australian Open on Thursday. Order restored No. 13 Sam Querrey restored some order for the United States men with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 win over Feliciano Lopez.

Ferrell, who is leaving Melbourne on Friday, also joked about his own tennis career.

Other winners of the day included former No. 1 Angelique Kerber, Garbine Muguruza, Madison Keys, Karolina Pliskova and Johanna Konta on the women's side.
