Without missing a beat, Ferrell slipped into his Ron Burgundy character and immediately began asking some unexpected questions.
“Tonight you seemed like a gazelle out there on the court. Would you describe your game as a silky gazelle?” Ferrell asked Federer.
“Maybe, maybe not. Don’t they get eaten at the end?” Federer replied, before being grilled on whether he is a witch or a vampire, and if he’s ever tasted wombat meat.READ MORE: Jersey City Police Investigating Fatal Shooting At Shopping Center
“There is a rumor in the men’s locker room that you love coming to play down here in Melbourne and your secret to fitness is you only eat wombat meat. Is that true?” Ferrell asked.
“That is untrue,” Federer said.
“Have you ever tasted wombat meat?” Ferrell asked.
“I have not. Should I?” Federer said.
“It is delicious, the national food of Australia,” Ferrell said.
Some found the questions hilarious while others were upset that he appeared to steal the spotlight away from the 19-time Gran Slam champion.MORE NEWS: COVID Vaccine: Johnson & Johnson Shots Expected This Week, Fauci Urges Americans Not To Be Discouraged By Efficacy
