Birthday poems: winners

16.08.2011 | Off Court, Starseite 3

Dear Fans

Thank you for all the poems you created for Roger's birthday. The number of entries we received (almost 2'000) is simply overwhelming! It took us some time to read them all and it was extremely hard to decide which ones are best. Here are the winners:


____________________________________


1st place:
(Wins a pair of Roger's original shoes, autographed)

On this day the stars collided
And fell to earth with grace
The "King" of tennis courts was born
The very Greatest Ace

If I had a crystal tennis ball
I know that I would see
A Happy 30th Birthday for you
And Grand Slam 17!!!


By Claudia C.

2nd place:
(Wins an autographed bag)

30-0
C'est le milieu d'un jeu, un bon score, un bel âge,
Et Roger Federer peut prendre l'avantage.
Que ce soit au tennis, dans la vie ou ailleurs,
C'est une année de plus qui te rendra meilleur.

Come On ! et champagne ! Cher Monsieur Federer,
Je te dis simplement: joyeux anniversaire !

3rd place:
(Wins an autographed RF cap)

A birthday poem?—I thought I’d PASS
I’ve turned my brain INSIDE OUT
Jot DOWN THE LINE or up the ALLEY
FOREHAND, BACKHAND—can’t get the SPIN
Take a SHOT… or DROP SHOT
LOB or SMASH – perhaps a SLICE (of cake?)
It’s Roger’s birthday—SERVE IT UP!
30 LOVE!

here goes mine :D

8 verses for Roger

You are 30 today - what a beautiful day to pray
That you will play until we're gray
And old but still in love with tennis, the game
Forever and never the same
Since you came;
Infected by your love, we play it too
Maybe even get a tatoo of you...
For you are, my friend, the bestest one- Made in 1981 !

Congrats for all the winners, even though I don't understand the French one at all, however, I think the the 3rd place one is really good, with more sparks of creativity, just like Roger showed on tennis court every time he steps on them.

I'd like to share my Limerick with everyone:

There once lived a tennis giant called Fed
Who had simply the best head to head
Forever he stood tall
Crafting every ball
And in the Land of Tennis he led!
