It turns out being arguably the best men's tennis player in history isn't enough to get you entry into the locker room at the Australian Open without proper identification. 

In the video below, a security guard refused to let Roger Federer enter the players' locker room because he wasn't wearing his tournament ID. 

To Federer's credit, he seemed to take the whole thing in stride before getting through. 

Just remember, all you aspiring tennis players, being a six-time Australian Open champion means nothing when you want to go into the locker room at Melbourne Park.
