Federer, Djokovic in amazing train picture


//

The bemused look on the face of the woman in the red jumper says it all.

Yes: that really is Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic riding the London Tube with six fellow tennis stars.

Along with Fed and Djoker, we have Kei Nishikori, Dominic Thiem, John Isner, Kevin Anderson, Marin Cilic and Alexander Zverev. The picture was posted by ATP Finals event director Adam Hogg ahead of the year-ending tournament in London; though it appears to be a selfie taken by Federer.

The players were headed to the tournament launch at London's houses of parliament. They caught the tube from North Greenwich station to Westminster station and stunned some of their fellow travellers - especially Federer and Djokovic, who have each amassed more than $100 million in prizemoney from tennis.

"Although we've probably all ridden on the tube a time or two, this was very different," Isner said.

"It's a very cool way to make an entrance. There were quite a few surprised looks on the faces of folks, especially when Roger and Novak walked by. It was a pretty cool treat for them."

Anderson has had a long, steady rise to world No.6, so he was no stranger to the tube. 

"We take the tube almost every year from where we stay at Wimbledon," the South African said.

"We go downtown into the city, so I know a few of the lines. It was a bit of a different journey this time with the company and all the cameras. It was pretty exciting."
