A-Rod Might Take Federer To His First Baseball Game

Roger Federer has yet another date with Robin Soderling in the quarterfinals.

Federer won in straight sets night, and barely broke a sweat, defeating Jurgen Melzer 6-3, 7-6, 6-3. A-Rod was in attendance! And he may take Roger to his first baseball game.

“Yeah, I met him for three minutes,” said Federer. “It’s just nice to meet another great athlete. Never been to a baseball game. So that’s something on the ‘to do’ list for me. Surprising enough, he invited me. My schedule is busy, so we’ll see if I can make it or not.”

Vera Zvonareva also won tonight, and it looks like we’re setting up a fantastic second week of tennis. Very few upsets in the first week equals high quality stuff for this week.
