Roger Federer and Sidney Crosby have missed out on their chance
to play tennis together but can still share a birthday cake.
The two sports stars met for the first time at the Rogers Cup on
Sunday. They were set to play together on a practice court at the
Rexall Centre, but rain scuttled their plans.
A birthday cake was brought out for the occasion as Federer
turned 29 on Sunday, a day after Crosby turned 23.
Crosby says the two talked about watching each other play. The
Pittsburgh Penguins star forward scored the overtime winner against
the United States to give Canada the gold medal at the 2010
Olympics in Vancouver.
Federer is a two-time winner at the Rogers Cup. The 16-time
Grand Slam champion is currently ranked No. 3 in the world.
