We’re used to seeing Roger Federer live in person on the tennis court, but that’s usually in a tournament setting, and more than likely in the finals! Now we get the chance to see The Fed go through his rigorous practice routine, as it happens! He’ll be broadcasting his practice session this Thursday, December 22) streaming live on both Twitter and Periscope platforms. An early Christmas present for Fed Fans everywhere.


While this event won’t be on Facebook, he did post there to offer a few details on what we can expect.

The session is going to begin at 2pm local time in Dubai. So you can find out what time that is wherever you happen to be, here’s a handy time zone converter website to check out.

P.S. Check out his website — a total redesign, and it looks, well, peRFect. You can also find some last-minute Christmas gifts from the Roger Federer Foundation at Tennis Warehouse. (U.S. here, and Europe here.)
