Will Ferrell revives Ron Burgundy for a hilarious interview with Roger Federer

Will Ferrell revives Ron Burgundy for a hilarious interview with Roger Federer

On Tuesday, following his first round Australian Open victory, tennis legend Roger Federer was introduced to his inquisitor: Ron Burgundy.

The World No. 2 paid a rich tribute to his wife Mirka and his children last week before starting his Australian Open title defence where he acknowledged how much his life has changed since having a family of his own.

He broke Bedene's serve in the fourth game of the first set in which he conceded only three points on his serve.

Federer's triumph over old rival Rafael Nadal in the final of last year's tournament, which came after a six-month injury lay-off, was his first in a major tournament for five years.

"Last year was a fairytale and I can't control everything". It was such a surprise, ” Federer said.

"I am not sure it will go as well [as 2017] because I'm a year older, Rafa's looking in tip-top shape and others guys are coming back". Ill keep working hard and see what happens at the end.”.

Wimbledon champion and third-seeded Garbine Muguruza started her quest for the No. 1 ranking with a 6-4, 6-3 win over Jessika Ponchet, a player ranked 253 spots below her.

It was a confidence booster for the 2014 Melbourne Park champion, who had a troubled lead-in to the years opening Grand Slam, pulling out of an exhibition event in Abu Dhabi on his way to Australia.

Djokovic tweaked his service motion while recovering from an injured right elbow, and used it to good effect in a 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 win over Donald Young.

The Serbian former world number one has been out of action for six months. He admitted that he still felt pain in the knee, but it was getting better.

“Its great to be back. "I'm happy I dodged some questions there".
