Will Ferrell Hilariously Interviews Roger Federer At Australian Open
When you've got a legend on court at the end of a match at the end of an Australian Open match it's only right that you let him interview Roger Federer but was it Will Ferrell or Ron Burgundy on the mic?
At 36 years of age Roger Federer continues to defy time and logic. He is currently the world's number two tennis player and the holder of two of the sports four grand slam tournaments.
Without Andy Murray at the tournament and with Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal both on the comeback from their respective injuries the Swiss star is once again favourite for the Australian Open.
This morning, for those of us in a European time zone, the 19 time grand slam champion started his campaign to defend his title against former Brit Aljaž Bedene with a straight sets, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3, victory.
After the match Federer was due to do his usual post match interview with John McEnroe on the court when the pair were joined by special guest Will Ferrell who took over from McEnroe with hilarious consequences:

Federer won't have to face Nadal until the final, should both make it that far, and next faces German Jan-Lennard Struff who is ranked 53rd in the world after he beat wild card entrant Soonwoo Kwon in his first round match.
The Swiss superstar has won the first grand slam of the year five times so far in his career and has only won Wimbledon on more occasions, where he has been victorious on eight occasions.
Elsewhere in the draw Novak Djokovic returned to action for the first time since Wimbledon and was victorious over American Donald Young in a 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 straight sets win.
But the performance of the day definitely went to Ferrell.
