Roger Federer found that out this week when he was blocked access to a locker room at the Australian Open by a security guard who took his job very seriously. A video circulating Twitter on Saturday showed the Swiss double defending champion stalled at the entrance for lacking his tournament accreditation. There was no argument from the 37-year-old, however, and he stopped and waited patiently for his entourage to catch up with him. He was finally let in when one of his team flashed the badge at the security guard, who nodded and smiled with the satisfaction of knowing he not been duped by a doppelganger. Federer will continue his bid for a record seventh Australian Open title against Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas in the fourth round on Sunday.
