The day Roger Federer couldn’t stop laughing at CNN correspondent’s Spanish phrases.
In the wee hours Wednesday, the tennis star was interviewed by CNN’s chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour.
The questions had been prepared on the fly and were designed to test the tennis star’s Spanish abilities.
When Amanpour asked if Federer was better on clay, he said, “I’m not going to be better on clay, Christiane.”
She then asked him where he thought Federer was going to end up in 2011, and he said, “With my foot on the clay.”
It was the first time that Federer had appeared on a Spanish-language news program before.
But it didn’t take long for the words to turn into laughter.
The video has more than a million views on YouTube.
The CNN host also asked him why he was going to play Spain in the Davis Cup in 2011. Federer said, “It’s an opportunity.”
In another exchange, she asked him why he would take a chance playing Spain in London if he wasn’t going to play them in Madrid.
Federer replied, “I mean, I don’t know, it’s an opportunity and I have to learn, I guess I can play Spain at home,” he said.
By the end of the three-hour interview, the star was laughing so hard his sides hurt.
