Pippa who? Ten­nis fan snaps Roger Fed­erer – but ig­nores Mid­dle­ton clan

The Mail on Sunday - - NEWS -

SHE be­came fa­mous around the world when, as a stun­ning brides­maid, she fol­lowed her big sis­ter Kate down the aisle at the Royal Wed­ding in 2011.

But Pippa Mid­dle­ton very much faded into the back­ground while en­joy­ing a night out with ten­nis su­per­star Roger Fed­erer.

The pair dined at Ital­ian restau­rant Il Trillo with Pippa’s hus­band James, her mother Ca­role and Roger’s wife Mirka.

But when the party emerged from the Chelsea restau­rant, a fan nabbed the ten­nis su­per­star for a selfie – and seem­ingly had no idea who 35-year-old Pippa was. Still, that didn’t stop the new mother from en­joy­ing one of her first nights out since giv­ing birth to a boy four weeks ago.

Pippa was all smiles, en­joy­ing a laugh with 40-year-old Mirka as the group left the restau­rant, which is just a stone’s throw from Pippa and James’s plush home. Pippa is a huge ten­nis fan – she is a reg­u­lar at the Wim­ble­don cham­pi­onships which 37-year-old Fed­erer has won eight times.

The pair be­came friends af­ter she in­ter­viewed him for Van­ity Fair mag­a­zine.
