Roger Federer Growing Frustrated As U.S. Open Drags Feet On Sending 1099 Form

BOTTMINGEN, SWITZERLAND—Roger Federer, the world's second-ranked men's tennis player, expressed consternation Monday that he was unable to file his taxes on income earned in the U.S. due to a late 1099 form for the $1.5 million he was awarded for winning the 2008 U.S. Open.
