One spectator said: & # 39; It was chaos … people just emptied their cars & ran forward. & # 39;

Police helped get the traffic moving and guided Federer, 37, back to his car – although he stopped talking to fans and posing for photos.

Uniqlo sponsors Federer and closed the store so that the couple could have a private visit – although it was not clear whether they really had to pay for it.
