Roger Federer and Lindsey Vonn are superstars in their respective sports. Federer, who plays professional tennis and Vonn, the ski champ, recently got together for a match that combined aspects of both activities.
The pair battled each other in a tennis competition that took place on a glacier. It may have looked as though Federer had the upper hand given the sport they played, but the location of the court gave Vonn a big advantage as she was right in her comfort zone.
The court was specially-built on Switzerland’s Jungfraujoch which has an altitude of over 11,000 feet. In the end, Federer proved to be a slightly more confident player in Wednesday's match.
The images of their match are stunning to say the least. The snow, covered mountains are the perfect backdrop to the brightly colored court.
The game was a promotional event for chocolate maker Lindt. Both Vonn and Federer had previously hinted at the match via Twitter before scheduling it via Skype for the world to see.
