Federer, Crosby share birthday cake, not tennis

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.
