Roger Federer took in a Broadway show and cried his eyes out

Friday September 4th, 2015

With an off day between each of his matches, Roger Federer has had some time to kill in New York City during the U.S. Open, so the tennis star gathered up his wife and children and they all went to a Broadway show.

The Federers went to see Finding Neverland, and when the curtains raised at the end, the 17-time major champion was in tears.

The show has garnered great reviews, but it is hard to think of a better line to put on an ad for a Broadway show than “We made Roger Federer cry.”
