What has Federer been doing in NYC?


In Cincinnati I questioned Roger Federer's focus on tennis and explored possibilities outside the game that could be distracting him. You, the readers of The Outer Courts, seemed to like the post and the pictures that came with it, so I thought we'd do something similar here in Flushing Meadows.

Below you'll find a few things Roger Federer could be up to here in New York City when he's not on the court. It's a big city, he has a lot of downtime, so the possibilities are endless.

1. Filling in for Alex Rodriguez.


Look at that smooth swing. It's just like a backhand.

2. Saving kittens from the subway.


Two kittens made national news last week when they got loose on a subway track, forcing the MTA to shut down power to the line. The furry animals were rescued seven hours later, but by who?

3. Starring in a Broadway musical.


Jersey Boys, perhaps?

4. Running for Mayor.


First order of business: Replace all soda machines in the city with Moet machines.

5. Twerking with Miley Cyrus at the VMAs.


Miley Cyrus set America back ten years with her antics at the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn. Is Roger Federer a fan of the controversial pop star and her "dancing"?

I doubt it. I highly doubt it.
