Roger Federer was once again presented with a cow on his return to Gstaad on Tuesday.

Roger Federer made a public appearance on court on Tuesday at the Credit Agricole Suisse Open Gstaad, where for the second time in his career he was presented with a cow to mark his return to the event. Federer was given a cow in Switzerland ten years ago named Juliette, in honour of his success at Wimbledon 2003. Federer's new cow is called Desiree.

"She won’t be in my trophy room, that’s for sure," said Federer. “But we’ll find a good solution, she needs a nice place and enough to eat.”


Federer was also involved in an on-court ceremony at the Roy Emerson Arena. This involved a flag throwing event that Roger took part in. The event was included in the ceremony as flag throwing is a popular pastime in the Gstaad region and is known as a traditional activity in the Swiss Alps.

Federer will begin his Gstaad campaign on Thursday with a match against Daniel Brands. The hard-hitting German took a set from the world No. 5 last week at the bet-at-home Open and secured his berth in the last sixteen with a three set victory over Federer's childhood friend Marco Chiudinelli.
