Roger Federer had home-nation advantage for his unlikely tennis match with Lindsey Vonn, but it was the skier who may have been more at home in the conditions. The unlikely pair faced off atop the Aletsch Glacier in Switzerland in a promotional event for Lindt Chocolate.

The exhibition took place approximately 3,454 meters above sea level. Federer won the showdown but Vonn held her own -- and came away with the chocolate. If she has her way, a rematch on the ski slopes may be next.
