Addicted: Gavin Rossdale on Hitting with Roger Federer

We all know Gavin Rossdale’s a tennis player, big fan and good friend of Roger Federer. So what’s it like to hit with Roger when you’re not a pro? This, excerpted from DETAILS magazine, November 2010 by Jonah Weiner, is what Rossdale had to say:

Details: You play tennis regularly with your friend Roger Federer. Ever come close to beating him?

Gavin Rossdale: No, it doesn’t really work like that! With Roger, my fun is just to hit with him enough so it’s a workout for him. That’s my Wimbledon: to hit with Roger and not waste his time. I’ve scored points on him, of course. If you hit a good serve, you could take out anyone in the world. But can you do it over five sets? Probably not.”
