Roger Federer is not one for go and seek the limelight.

The Swiss legend was at the Oscars on Sunday night and even had some tequila before the ceremony started to ease the nerves even though he was to have a stress-free night. 

Federer is currently away from the tennis circuit after suffering a meniscus injury at the Australian Open. The 34-year-old wont return to action until next month.

When speaking to the reporter Federer revealed that "getting back to Number One starts like that".

If Federer is victorious at Roland Garros, Wimbledon or Flushing Meadows this year, it will be all down to that shot of tequila.
