“If somebody brings me a kilt – I will put it on”.
Those were fighting words from Roger Federer, in an arena with some 14,000 Glaswegians Tuesday night as he joined Andy Murray for a charity exhibition.
Needless to say, someone had a kilt.
And the young lady seemed quite pleased to not only remove it (and wear a coat around her lower half while it was out on loan), but also to personally put it on Federer for the occasion.
The world No. 2 played one game with it, won the game, and proved that he doesn’t mind looking like a dork if it’s for a good cause.
Madame then had the privilege of unbuckling Federer, who then not only autographed the garment, but brought it over in the middle of the match so Murray could do the same.
It may well end up framed in the lady’s parlour. But the best part was that she acted as if it were, “Hey, no big deal. This sort of stuff happens to me all the time.”
