Roger meets Prince William

Real royalty met tennis royalty Thursday night,
as Prince William made a surprise visit to Melbourne to watch Roger Federer play a second round match at the Australian Open.


William arrived fashionably late -- 75 minutes -- to Roger's match and was greeted with a warm ovation from the crowd at Rod Laver Arena. The only problem was that 75 minutes into this Roger match meant showing up for the end, as the 15-time Grand Slam champ was making quick work of his Romanian opponent, Victor Hanescu.

Roger’s Haiti charity match raises $600,000
Roger Federer was recognized Sunday as a humanitarian.

A charity match initiated by Roger Federer to raise money for Haiti earthquake victims has raised more than $600,000, said Tennis Australia president Geoff Pollard.

The Jan. 12 earthquake that has killed at least 150,000 in Haiti struck three days before the start of the Australian Open.

Roger organized a mixed-doubles fundraiser on the eve of the Open that featured some of tennis’ top stars, wearing microphones on court and providing comedic commentary as they played.
