Paris; Sunday, June 3, 2012: Armed only with mad skills, an imposing dark outfit, and his powerful lightsaber racquet, Darth Federer just took down his biggest fanboy, Belgian upstart and “Lucky Loser” in the French Open, David Goffin. The youthful, blond opponent turned out to be quick on his feet and quite adept at Maestro-esque shot-making, which made it a tricky four-set match for Roger. Here’s a photographic replay, with Darth Fed’s thoughts on the highs…and lows…of the Padawan Goffin match. You might not understand all of Darth Fed’s references if you haven’t seen the “Star Wars” films, but let’s face it–if you haven’t seen the “Star Wars” films, you have bigger problems than understanding the jokes here at Tennis Inside Out.
