Lindsey Vonn‘s feeling spry enough to take on not only the world’s best skiers in her return from injury, but also the most decorated men’s tennis player of all time.

Swiss Roger Federer, the 17-time major champion, asked his Twitter followers which athlete they would like to see him play in another sport.

Vonn, a longtime Federer fan who follows him on Twitter, quickly responded.

Federer, whose résumé hole is the lack of an Olympic singles gold medal, probably wouldn’t be too keen on risking injury on the slopes as he tries to regain a top-five ranking.

Golf, however, could add the company of Tiger Woods, Vonn’s boyfriend who is also quite familiar with Federer.
