John McEnroe was best known for having a cow on the tennis court. Roger Federer can, once again, say he owns one.

Federer was playing in the Swiss Open for the first time since 2004 — he lost in Thursday's second round. The fine folks from his homeland decided to welcome the legend the same way they did 10 years ago: with a cow.

In 2003, Federer named his cow Juliette. This go-round, her name is Desiree.
Hopefully, Desiree will be the good luck charm that sees Federer turn around a recent slump.


Roger Federer has won a few trophies in his day. A look at his Grand Slam triumphs.

"She won’t be in my trophy room, that’s for sure," he said. "We’ll find a good solution, she needs a nice place and enough to eat.”

Federer was stunned at Wimbledon in the second round and last week in Germany was ousted by a qualifier, Federico Delbonis.

"Right now it's important for me to maintain my ranking and eventually, hopefully, when I win big tournaments again or more tournaments, then I can move up again," he said.

"I just need to first make sure that I'm healthy, that I do all the right things in practice and then that I can attack again in the matches."

At least there's one question that is resolved . . . Got milk?
