Elin had lunch with Roger & his wife April 3 in Miami — and I’ve got a feeling Tiger was the main topic of conversation.
Who better for Elin Nordegren to talk out her Tiger Woods issues with than close friends of the family? That’s just what she did as she sat down for a cozy lunch with Tiger’s longtime friend, tennis pro Roger Federer, and his wife Mirka Vavrinec. Back in January, while many of Tiger’s mistresses were still coming out of the woodwork, Roger confessed that he’d been in touch with Tiger over the phone. “Tiger needs calm,” Roger said at the time. “And soon he’ll become the wonderful golfer that we know again.”
So it’s clear Roger’s heart goes out to Elin and Tiger, and that he really does see the good in his longtime friend. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if he tried to convince Elin to take Tiger back. As a married man with two kids of his own, I’m sure he just wants to see everything go back to normal.
Regardless of the conversation, it must have been nice for Elin just to have lunch with her good friends at a fancy hotel. Photographers at the Sony Ericsson Open, which is near the hotel where Elin and her friends lunched, say they even saw little 14-month-old Charlie Woods swinging around a Nike tennis racquet, which was reportedly a gift from Roger. Could Elin have a little athlete-in-training on her hands?
