'Ron Burgundy' Interviews Roger Federer After Australian Open Win

'Ron Burgundy' Interviews Roger Federer After Australian Open Win”

After barely breaking a sweat, Federer was interviewed by John McEnroe who, after wrapping up his questions, asked the tennis great to stick around for a "special guest".

The 28-year-old, who previously represented Great Britain before switching back to his country of birth this year, could only fashion two break point opportunities all night.

Defending champion Roger Federer moved smoothly into his majestic stride with a straight-sets win over Slovenian Aljaz Bedene in his opening match at the Australian Open on Tuesday.

From there, the awkward chat covered everything from wombat meat, (which Federer denied eating), through to his name and age. Here's how it panned out.

"Roger, tonight you seemed like a gazelle out there on the court". "Would you describe your game as a silky gazelle?".

"Not if their fast enough", Ferrell said, drawing a laugh from the crowd.

And given the 36-year-old has now played 1383, not to mention exhibitions, that's quite a lot.

RF: Ahh I don't like those.

RF: That is untrue.

Previous year during the Australian Open, Kvitova was recovering from surgery to her left hand as a result of a knife attack from an assailant who broke into her home in Czech Republic in late 2016. Because if you want to get to the top you have to play in all conditions.

This video immediately made me wish that I had more Will Ferrell in my life.

This apart, we have Angelique Kerber playing as Angelique Kerber in a video game, Will Ferrell interviewing Federer, and Sascha Zverev talking about his dog.

While Ferrell said he's enjoying Melbourne he did leave a tip for how we can improve our city.

Jim Courier post-match interviews are mostly fun. I saw him when I started the match, then I totally forgot he sat there. At the end, I realised he is still actually there. "That's when he walked out onto center court".

"It was a fun interview, I thought". Ferrell asked. Turns out, Federer can hold his ground against a seasoned journalist like Ferrell. It's never been more wide open, so I don't know.

"I knew he could serve big, no problem for five hours so that's what you're ready for", said the Swiss. "Doesn't mean it's going to go in, but I have - yeah, I don't have much of a backhand". "I'm happy I dodged some questions there".
