Watch Roger Federer surprise girls whose rooftop tennis match went viral

“I have played in many cool places around the world, but this one is definitely up there for me as a special experience,” Federer said.

Roger Federer served up the surprise of a lifetime for two girls in Italy who went viral in April for playing rooftop tennis while they were quarantined.

The 38-year-old tennis champ from Switzerland teamed up with Barilla to play rooftop tennis with the girls named Carola, 11, and Vittoria, 13.

The duo was answering questions on a rooftop for what they thought was an interview about their viral clip when they started talking about how much they love the tennis legend.

“If I were to meet him, I would jump on him, or I would be starstruck,” Vittoria said.

“I would like to have Federer’s elegance while playing,” Carola said.

While the girls, who went viral across a range of social media outlets, debated the merits of Federer and fellow tennis star Rafael Nadal, Carola realized Federer was right behind them.

He introduced himself and offered to play tennis with them.

They shouted down to one of their grandmothers and held up one of his rackets while trying to soak in the reality of playing in a match with their idol.

“Shall we have some fun? Ready to play? Yeah? Here we go,” Federer said before they started.

After working up a sweat and an appetite, he signed some tennis balls and asked if they’d like to have lunch. Federer, who’s won 20 Grand Slam singles titles, the most for any male tennis player in history, said playing with the girls ranks right up there with anything he’s done on a court.

“Personally, for me, that was a very special moment in my career as a tennis player to surprise a fan, or children, like I was able to with Carola and Vittoria today,” he said in the video.

The trio then sat down for a meal.

“I have played in many cool places around the world, but this one is definitely up there for me as a special experience. We showed that we can play anywhere and have fun with it. So, I had the best time, honestly,” he said.

The video concluded with Federer appearing on the screen by himself to let the girls know he had found a summer camp for them and that he, along with Rafa Nadal Academy, would team up with Barilla, to send them there, proving once and for all that this tennis star truly is aces.

‘Without Roger Federer’s patience…’, says famous trainer

Published

on

After more than a year of inactivity, Roger Federer will return to play a tournament on 8 March in Doha. The Swiss maestro last played an official match at the 2020 Australian Open, when he was defeated in three sets with Novak Djokovic (later winner of the tournament).

Many questions that arise spontaneously to millions of fans around the world, above all “Will he be able to get back competitive?” His former coach, Heinz Gunthardt, told him about the matter. “It will be one of the greatest challenges ever seen in the world of sport.

There is no doubt. A couple of things have to be fine. He has to move well, he has to build a little confidence with the pitch and with the game, as well as with his body. Playing at a high level right away? Possible, but the first thing to do will be to serve well.

Of course, though, he won’t be used to the game, but that’s not the biggest problem. The focus will be on how well he can move. Why not, he could even win Wimbledon maybe. Why don’t fans have to be optimistic about his return? There is much more to be curious than pessimistic about his condition.”

While speaking with Rene Stauffer, Pierre Paganini made a startling revelation, explaining how Federer’s body has suffered significant degradation during this period – which is in sharp contrast to its condition during his 2016 injury hiatus.

Paganini talks about Roger Federer

“Without Roger Federer’s patience, the guillotine would have fallen long ago,” Pierre Paganini stated. “He depends on it (passion), and so do we! When a player who’s almost 40 has to do exercises that a 70-year-old can do without any problems, and is happy that it gets better every day – if that’s not passion (then what is).”

Paganini further revealed that Roger Federer’s participation at the Dubai Open is not yet a guarantee, as was previously believed to be. “At the moment it is only clear that he is playing Doha, then we’ll see,” Paganini revealed.

Federer is the most successful player at the Doha Open, winning the tournament previously on three occasions in 2005, 2006, and 2011. The event is played on hard courts in an outdoor environment. The tournament will be played from the 8th of march and will end on the 13th of the month. The ATP Dubai 500 will begin on the 14th of March and will end on the 20th of March.

Novak Djokovic attended an event held by his endorsement Asics, shoe producer, on Saturday in Shanghai, China, and the interviewers showed him a photo featuring him and his son Stefan staying on a bench together looking at something on the Wimbledon practice courts.

That was actually a very funny moment. ‘I was showing him (Rafael) Nadal, who was playing two courts away because he doesn’t know anybody from tennis but he knows Nadal because I explained him, This is the guy who hits the ball very very hard.

When he sees him, he says, Oh, you are the guy who hits the ball very very hard’, said Djokovic. Talking on his comeback, the 31-year-old added: ‘I worked very hard to be able to regain confidence on the court after that I had surgery in February.

It took me several months to be able to get my game together. I have made some compensations with my game especially with my serve, I made certain changes with the racket so it took a little bit of time to get used to the new racket and serve and not to have the elbow disturbing me.
