Roger Federer and Lindsey Vonn Play Tennis on a Glacier


We never thought that tennis and snow mixed, but Roger Federer and Lindsey Vonn made it work. On Wednesday, the two gold medalists teamed up to play an exhibition tennis match on the Aletsch Glacier in Switzerland to promote the opening of the Lindt Swiss Chocolate Heaven shop. 

Federer (a global ambassador for the Swiss chocolate company) challenged Lindsay to a match in #chocolateheaven over Skype after his loss in the Wimbledon final. After the promise of chocolate and seeing that view, how could she not accept?

Vonn and Federer played on a makeshift court on a glacier in Jungfraujoch at an altitude of 3,475 meters. Vonn, who dates Federer’s longtime friend Tiger Woods, sparked the competition last fall with this tweet:

Now we’ll be waiting for Federer and Vonn to strap on their ski boots and hit the slopes. What do you think of this news? Sound off below or tweet us @Shape_Magazine!
