Roger Federer Win Wimbledon

The day after Roger Federer won a record-tying 7th Wimbledon tournament and became the newly-minted No. 1 gamer in the world, he came back to the site of his newest success to perform meetings in various 'languages' and, while there, ran into All Britain Team Chair John p Stream.

They interchanged pleasantries and before separating methods, Stream said: “I’ll see you in a couple of several weeks.”

“I’ll check in with you when I get back,” Federer responded with a smile.

In this rather uncommon period, the natural lawn that Federer knows so well is the landscape of two considerable events: Wimbledon, which finished Weekend, and the London, uk Olympics golf competitors, which starts September 28. Having renewed his leadership at the Huge Throw competitors, Federer can quickly follow that up by generating a silver honor in men and women for Europe, one of the few success losing from his stocked full continue.

And create no error, Federer is not merely satisfied to be doing the 2012 Summer season Games.

“I do believe my situation has got that little celebrity next to it. I am now the Wimbledon champ, and I think that gives me even more assurance coming to the Olympics. And maybe in some methods, it maybe takes some ‘pressure,”’ he said, uncrossing his hands to create air quotations with his hands, “off the Olympics because I already did win at Wimbledon this period. So that is a great thing for me because of course there is a lot of buzz around me enjoying at the Olympics this period.”

This is about successful, not taking part.

He won’t stay in the athletes’ village. Been there, done that.

Instead, Federer will rent his usual house near the All England Club, an arrangement that worked well this past fortnight, clearly.

Federer has already been to three Olympics; he met his wife, Mirka, a former tennis player, at the 2000 Games. He carried the Swiss flag at the opening ceremony twice, but said he might allow someone else to have that honor this time. He owns a doubles gold he won with Stanislas Wawrinka in Beijing four years ago.

A singles gold would be the perfect gift for a guy who has everything, including a record 17 Grand Slam titles (his first came at Wimbledon in 2003) and, as of Monday, 286 weeks at No. 1 in the ATP rankings, equaling Pete Sampras’ career record.

“Obviously, the Olympics is the next goal,” Federer said during a 15-minute session with a half-dozen reporters. “I was taking it in steps, really: all-out until Wimbledon. And then, after that, take a break, reassess, prepare well, then come back for the Olympics and hopefully play well.”

On Tuesday, Olympic organizers officially begin to take over the All England Club and make it theirs.

There was a flurry of activity around the grounds Monday. A large electronic video scoreboard was getting dismantled. Potted plants were being discarded. A souvenir shop was being emptied of purple-and-green umbrellas and other Wimbledon items to make way for Olympic mementos.

“Apparently, people are moving in and (are) just going to change everything. I mean ... a lot. Also, it’s going to be different because all of the (staff) are going to be different. Normally, we have familiar faces, everybody we know. Those are all apparently gone, so that’s going to be a bit odd and disappointing, almost to a degree,” Federer said. “But I’m sure the IOC are going to make it work. ... I’m excited to see how they’re going to make it work because this already works as good as can be. So I don’t know how they’re going to make it better. But anyway, let them try.”

It was tough to imagine how he could possibly make himself into a better player, but he keeps on honing his craft and adding to his record totals.

Billy Madison Starred Adam Sandler


Billy Madison starred Adam Sandler, Bridgette Wilson, Darren McGavin, Bradley Whitford and Josh Mostel. In anticipation of the release of his new film, Just Go With It, in theaters February 11, 2011, Adam Sandler will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday, February 1, at 11:30 a.m.

Sandler’s first brush with comedy came at age 17, with a performance at a Boston comedy club. From then on he was hooked, performing regularly in comedy clubs throughout the state, while earning a degree in Fine Arts from New York University. While performing stand up, he was spotted by Dennis Miller and recruited to join the “Saturday Night Live” team where he was a regular for five seasons.

Sandler’s films have grossed more than $3 billion worldwide. His most recent film, Sony Pictures’ Grown Ups, is the highest-grossing of his career, taking in more than $271 million worldwide. Sandler also recently starred in Universal’s Funny People, written and directed by Judd Apatow starring with Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, Erica Bana, Jonah Hill and Jason Schwartzman, as well as the box office smashes Bedtime Stories for Walt Disney Studios, Sony Pictures You Don’t Mess with the Zohan and Universal’s comedy I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry.

Later this year, Sandler will lend his voice for the Sony/MGM comedy Zookeeper alongside Kevin James, Jon Favreau, Sylvester Stallone, Faison Love, Leslie Bibb and Rosario Dawson, and will star in both title roles in Jack and Jill, also for Sony Pictures. Sandler stars in JUST GO WITH IT, which will be released by Sony Pictures on February 11.

Previously, Sandler has been seen in the starring role opposite Don Cheadle in Sony’s Reign Over Me for director Mike Binder, the box-office hits Click, starring with Kate Beckinsale, and The Longest Yard, starring with Chris Rock and Burt Reynolds. He also starred in James L. Brooks’ Spanglish, opposite Tea Leoni; the romantic comedy 50 First Dates, with Drew Barrymore; Anger Management, with Jack Nicholson; and Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination.

Sandler’s production company Happy Madison Productions was co-founded by Jack Giarraputo and Sandler and has gone on to become an almost self-contained mini studio, involved in all aspects of film production. Happy Madison has produced Click, The Benchwarmers, Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, Strange Wilderness and the recent films The House Bunny, Paul Blart: Mall Cop and the upcoming Zookeeper.

Sandler has also collaborated with writer Tim Herlihy on the screenplays for Happy Gilmore, Little Nicky, Billy Madison, Big Daddy, and The Waterboy and executive produced Grandma’s Boy, The Animal, Joe Dirt, The Master of Disguise, The Hot Chick and Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo.

Happy Madison Productions also has a deal with Columbia Tri-Star Domestic Television to develop shows for the studio including the current hit show “Rules of Engagement” starring David Spade and Oliver Hudson.

Sandler’s comedy albums on Warner Bros Records have gone multi-platinum. Collectively, they have sold more than six million copies to date. Several years ago, Sandler launched AdamSandler.com. This site is updated weekly with mini-movies featuring Sandler and the staff of Happy Madison in their daily routines.
