Roger Federer - caffeine monster

I've been a fan of Roger Federer ever since David Foster Wallace wrote about how he plays tennis.  But I never knew that he can also handle seven coffees at a time:

(It's a hand-me-down Jura coffee machine).

I really like this photo.  Clearly he's thinking about tennis - probably how to deal with Nadal constantly playing to his weaknesses.  But unfortunately he's held up at this promo shoot, at which they inadvertently created a lonely scene of endless coffees stretching into infinity.  Maybe you can never be too rich or too thin, but you can certainly have too much espresso.
