Roger Federer crying Australian Open

Billie Jean King says we should not be afraid to “cry like Roger Federer”. We dug into the archives for times when Federer and Andy Murray shed tears.

During a pre-Oscar party, 12-time Grand Slam winner King told Showbiz411.com both women and men should “loosen up, cry like Roger Federer“.

So here you go, here are times where Federer, winner of 20 Grand Slams, as well as two-time Wimbledon winner Murray “loosened up” in front of the cameras.

This was at Wimbledon in 2001 when Federer upset Pete Sampras. You will have to go right to the end to see him get emotional.

The Swiss Maestro struggled right from the start during this speech at the 2006 Australian Open after he beat Marcos Baghdatis in the final.

Here Federer is at the 2009 Australian Open after he finished runner-up to Rafael Nadal.

Just a tear or 20 when the Swiss anthem played shortly after he won the 2009 French Open.

There is certainly an Australian Open theme as Andy Murray was at it after the 2010 final in Melbourne.

And more from Murray during the 2012 Wimbledon speeches.

Slow music added for dramatics. This was after he lost the 2014 Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic.

But here is the speech from the 2014 final and is that Djokovic shedding a tear in the background?

Daddy Federer also got emotional after the 2017 Wimbledon final when his children arrived on court.

He beat Marin Cilic in the 2018 Australian Open final and, of course, he broke down during his speech.

Of course, he shed a tear when he returned to the top of the world rankings at the Rotterdam Open in February 2018.
