16 Things Roger Federer Does While He Waits On His Opponent
No one makes The Fed wait.
The often-calm Roger Federer had his patience tested when the umpire allowed his round four US Open opponent John Isner to change kits in the locker room.
Isner went over the allotted 120 seconds between sets, leaving the Swiss champ clearly irked. Despite his annoyance, Federer still displayed pure class and showed how one should deal with waiting.
Pace back and forth on the court.
Showcase your exceptional ball skills.
Complain to the umpire. Rightfully.
Snide at his poor excuse.
Smooth your already-perfect hair.
And fix your socks while you still got the time. (You got lots of it.)
Bounce a ball with your racquet.
Bounce a ball on your body. You know, like in soccer.
Stand in admiration of the crowd before you.
Do a funny dance.
Bounce a ball faster. Maybe your opponent will speed up as fast!
He ain't there yet? Raise thy eyebrow.
Stay warm, of course. You're still in the middle of a match.
Show 'em who's boss.
And, face the next set like a true champ.
