Roger Federer made a special guest appearance on the KSR postgame show

Roger Federer — yes, that Roger Federer — just made a guest appearance on the Kentucky Sports Radio postgame basketball show.  The second-ranked tennis player in the world took the phone from Matt at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden’s cafeteria and said, “Hey radio guys, go cats!”

Federer jokingly told us he is a Louisville fan before taking the phone, right as a member of his entourage asked to confirm that Kentucky is a Nike school. It was a very surreal moment for Kentucky Sports Radio and you better believe that clip will be played over and over again from now until the end of time.

    Oh, the tales you’ll both have for the KSR house next week. Tell them to me over breakfast on Friday, Drew, okay?

    Thanks for staring the risk of rejection square in the eye and pulling the trigger, Matt.

  5. Tennis?

    Does Federer play the SG or SF position?

  6. Roland

    What? Matt, can’t go on his phone and comment.

    Tennis is fuzzy balls.

    My wife made that salad. It’s a very nice salad that we both like to eat.

  8. Roland

    I guess I missed matts comments.

    Exactly #3. The greatest tennis player of all-time could have easily shrugged him off.

    No way, I am at Indian Wells today too! I was listening to the UK-Florida game while I watched Federer and Murray practice! I hope to run into you Matt…

    I am so proud of how Uk “as a team” played today. That is what the fans want to see. If you give it all your heart and play with passion, fans will love this team regardless if they win or lose. But, if they play this way, this team is going to win more games. I just wanted to say “thank you” to all the players for playing with “heart and passion” and representing UK and the BBN!!!!! A big “thank you” to Coach Cal for not giving up on this team!!!

    Humza Qureshi ate my napkins and then proceeded to wash my car with his hind legs
    and some windex.

    Sweet, I met both Drew and Matt at Indian Wells today! They really are great guys, and we are lucky to have them represent the Big Blue Nation. Go Federer!!!!!

    So after a week of discussion and indecision, Matt decided on a black Polo and jeans. 🙂
