Roger Federer hits the Eiffel Tower

(@RogerFederer) (@RogerFederer)

One week into joining Twitter, Roger Federer has already mastered the basic purpose of the social-media service: selfies and travel photos.

You would think that after 14 years of playing Grand Slam tournaments, Federer would have pretty much done all the sight-seeing there is in Melbourne, Paris, London and New York. But he used his day off from the French Open on Thursday to visit the Eiffel Tower and see the view from the top for the first time. At least he says he did. Pics or it didn't happen, Roger!

OK, OK. We believe you.

Hopefully, Federer took the elevator and avoided the 600-plus steps needed to reach the top level. No need to expend any unnecessary energy. He's got a third-round match against Julien Benneteau on Friday.
