Looking out of sorts at the start of the final Sunday, Rog took some anti-inflammatory medication and there were murmurs of a possible hip injury. As if there weren’t enough jokes about Old Man Fed, now he’s got a hip problem? (ETA: Confirmation of hip injury here and here.)

The Swiss tennis star is not always that upfront about his injuries, at least not when there’s a tournament waiting to be played. So all we can do is speculate on the Five Possible Ways the Fed Express Could Have Injured His Hip:

5. Threw off his alignment after repeatedly sitting on his fat wallet.

4. While taking a nap, Rog rolled over a squeaky toy one of the twins left on the hotel room bed. Hilarious…but painful. (Or he stepped on a Lego–those double-prongers always end up right between the toes.)

3. After meeting Will Smith, he tried to get Jiggy Wit’ It.
