KING OF THE COURT: In an photograph taken March 23, 2008, Roger Federer, the world’s No. 1 ranked men’s professional tennis player, pulls the sword from the stone in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Federer was recreating the pose he struck for a photo by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz that was featured in a print advertising campaign for Disney Parks. In the advertisement for Disney’s “Year of a Million Dreams,” Federer — clad in a suit of armor and a cape — portrayed King Arthur and pulled a sword from an anvil. Federer, who has been ranked No. 1 in the world for 215 consecutive weeks, was visiting Walt Disney World Resort during Easter weekend before heading to Miami for the 2008 Sony Ericsson Open which will begin March 26.
