“The bar was about to close, so we…”

In a 2019 interview for La Gazzetta dello Sport, Roger Federer admitted that got so drunk after his 2008 US Open win that he needed 4 days to recover from the hangover. “I’ve never had a diet in my life. And I like to celebrate a victory with a good glass of champagne.

Once I got drunk too,” said Federer as quoted by the Daily Star. “One happened after winning the US Open. It took me three and a half days to recover completely. The tournament was finished on Sunday evening and I only recovered on Thursday.

I remember everything: the bar was about to close, so we ordered drinks in advance for the following hours. We realised that we had ordered too many.” Yet, that US Open hangover may have not happened during the 2008 US Open, as Federer recently recalled for Caminada magazine.

“Well, that was probably in 2005, after my win against Andre Agassi at the US Open,” the Swiss said. “We were in the exit, they said the bar was closing, so we ordered a few last shots, after which I was nauseous for days.

But actually, I never lose control, and drinking and driving isn’t an option.”

The post-Wimbledon hangover

Besides the 4-day US Open hangover, Federer also got pretty drunk after his 2017 Wimbledon win when he reportedly partied until 5 am.

“Yeah, my head’s ringing,” a hungover Federer said during a press conference. “I don’t know what I did last night [after the Champions’ dinner]. I drank too many types of drinks, I guess. After the ball we went to – what would you call it? I guess it’s a bar – and there were almost 30 to 40 friends that were there.

We had a great time. Got to bed at five, then woke up, and just didn’t feel good. The last hour or so I’m somewhat OK again. I’m happy with that.”
