Last week we shared a clip from an SI article that suggested Tiger Woods and Roger Federer were no longer close friends. The article inferred the relationship between the two became strained after Tiger’s wife-cheating ways were revealed. However, when asked about his relationship with Roger this week, Tiger indicated it’s still strong.
“Fed and I, we text all the time, still — he’s been a great friend over the years, and we’re always needling each other all the time. I think he’s in Montreal this week playing. We’ve been trying to keep up with each other.”
Who knows if that’s Tiger just playing the P.R. game or if it’s real, but we’ll take his word for now. It’s possible for them to text without feeling as close as they did before. Who really knows how their relationship is? What we do know is that these are two men who used to be at the pinnacle of their sports. Now they’re fading from the spotlight as age takes its course. Looks like they’ll have just as much in common in the future as they did in the past.Google+
