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.
