Rockettes’ Pick for Dancer of the Week: Roger Federer and Mickey Mouse
Who: Tennis player Roger Federer and Mickey Mouse
Why we chose them: Who knew tennis star Roger Federer had such epic moves? To help kick off the Shanghai Rolex Masters in China, the tennis star had an impromptu dance-off (we think it was more like a doubles performance!) with Mickey Mouse and showed off what some are calling his “dad” dance moves.
It’s clear that the 19-time Grand Slam champion is more comfortable darting around the court with a racquet in his hand, but when Mickey, dressed in a blue track suit, invited the 36-year-old star to dance, Roger took it to a whole new level—mimicking Mickey’s moves and even improvising some fancy footwork.
Keep on dancing, you two!
Fun fact: Dance may be an international language, but Roger also speaks English, German, Swiss German and French!
