Will Ferrell interviews Roger Federer as Ron Burgundy and it's hilarious

Roger Federer

Will appeared on court after the Swiss sportsman's straight-sets win over Slovenian player Aljaz Bedene in Melbourne on Tuesday night, and quickly slipped into his role as the eccentric newsreader from Anchorman and its sequel.

As far as how Will Ferrell even managed to score the opportunity to interview Roger Federer on television, the actor has been a part of a handful of celebrity-backed tennis benefits throughout the years. Obviously, that meant asking Federer if he was a vampire, as well as other odd inquiries, including one about the rumor that his dietary needs include wombat meat.

The Step Brothers star finally ended the "interview" by signing off as only Ron Burgundy could: "Stay classy, Melbourne".

The only time Federer looked remotely stumped came during a post-match interview conducted by American comedian Will Ferrell, who told him he had played like a "silky gazelle".

"Not if their fast enough", Ferrell said, drawing a laugh from the crowd.

Federer said it was a bit of fun and didn't know the Ferrell would take the microphone. It's good as at an older age you start forgetting your own name some times.

Meanwhile, another source revealed that Kylie refuses to be photographed because she feels conscious about her pregnancy body . According to Us Weekly , Kylie has been set on keeping this part of her life private since the early stages of her pregnancy.

Clearly still bemused by the freaky interview (as you probably would be, in fairness), the tennis star struggled to drum up some kind of witty answer, and instead awkwardly mumbled: "I don't like either of those".

While Ferrell provided some comedy, Federer, who insisted that he is too old to be considered favourite, again proved that when it comes to tennis, he is king of the jungle.

While Ferrell said he's enjoying Melbourne he did leave a tip for how we can improve our city.

"It was a fun interview, I thought".

The former world number one was playing his first official match since retiring during his Wimbledon quarter-final against Tomas Berdych last summer with elbow problems that forced him to miss the rest of the season.
