The world's greatest golfer and the world's greatest tennis player will attempt to resume their winning ways in Miami this week. And they may slip away to watch each other in action.
Roger Federer saw his 41-game win streak snapped in Indian Wells on March 11. Tiger is coming off a disappointing 22nd place finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, breaking a streak of 13 consecutive top-ten finishes in worldwide events.
In a Golf.com article, both said they enjoy watching each other compete. Although Federer admits it's hard to be a Tiger spectator. Mostly what you see is peoples' backs.
Tiger also has a competitive advantage, according to Federer.
“He (Tiger) has it easier,” Federer was quoted as saying (with a smile). “He's playing on grass all the time, whereas I have to go to different surfaces.”
Of course, Federer plays the same-sized tennis court each week. The lines are uniform. The net is always the same height. And the player on the other side of the net almost always loses.
