COMEDY SPOTS: Federer Beaten by a Baby Hippo

A baby hippo, called Farasi, was born at the Basel zoo and caused too much of a stir in Switzerland that it was voted "Swiss of the Year" beating out Roger Federer. (source: Wall Street Journal)

The Swiss will have to settle for second place in yet another contest, but this time it's not to Rafa, but to baby Farasi.

"I only heard about the hippo like a day ago. (laughter) I never heard of the story, but at least the hippo is from Basel, right? I can take that loss. That's okay (laughter)," said Federer to reporters at Indian Wells.
