What would you give to be Roger Federer, just for one day? The Swiss supremo has just proved once again, in case you didn't already think so, that he is perhaps the coolest guy to walk planet Earth.
I've promised by girlfriend that I would limit myself to just one man-crush in my life. David Beckham, Davo - as I'd like to call him on that sweet day when we will first meet - was in the clear - a league of his own. Now, however, I think we'll need to talk about whether I can add the fabulous and fetching Federer to the list. Becksy needs some competition.
My life has been forced to take on this monumental rethink in the light of the pictures released of Federer's newly built house/lad-pad in Switzerland. I wouldn't want to be a home-wrecker and upset his family, but have you seen his new house?
It costs a scorching £6.5 million, but lets face it, I think Roger has it covered with enough change left to throw a casual house warming party.
Located in the Swiss Alps, it looks simply stunning from the outside; mostly glass-fronted but with a metallic shine on the edges. I'm sure there's a nice amount of security to protect nosey on-lookers and potential trouble makers too.

The views are something to marvel at. After a long fortnight of playing (and probably winning) Grand Slam tennis, Federer can relax on his wood-furnished balcony as he overlooks the sunset on Lake Zurich. Inside is like a futuristic abyss with a perfectly on-point feng shui.
All joking aside, sort of, this house is just the cherry atop of the cream on an almost orgasmic cake when it comes to proving Federer's lofty coolness rating. His various sponsors, apart from making him the highest earning tennis star, also mean he will never have to go wanting for the best car, clothes, watches, equipment and chocolate (Lindt).
On-court, he remains ice-cool. Nothing ever goes out of place, apart from the occasional lock of rich, brown, nourished hair which may escape from the sweatband.
He glides around the various surfaces like a warmed knife through soft butter and has the ability to flex those bulging muscles to send his opponent packing from any rally or tournament with a fierce forehand blast.
His stylish, elegant, sophisticated and humble off-court demeanour endears him to a crowd fit to rub shoulders with royalty - if he isn't already perfect enough to be considered royal anyway. So, enough gushing. Is he coolest-ever? - He's certainly in the top echelon.
Is Fed fabulous enough to down Beckham though? - I think he might just be. I'm sure the ex-England skipper has a number of unimaginably nice mansions, but in the Swiss Alps overlooking the Lake?
One other thing to consider is that Becks has been forced to succumb to age. No longer do we see that work of art being produced from his golden right book at every free-kick and corner. It's a shame. There's only so much time you can spend on YouTube in a day.
