Leonardo Mayer: ´I Want Roger Federer to Give Me a Tennis Lesson´- View: 6107 by Ivan Pasquariello
It has been a dream-come-true week for Leonardo Mayer in Germany. The 27-year-old won his first ever ATP title at the Mercedes Cup in Hamburg.
All of that topped by his first ever win against a top 10 player, right in the final, taking out World No.7 David Ferrer in three sets. Just to make things even more sweet for the Argentine, Leonardo has also made his debut in the ATP top 30.
So what could Leonardo ask more from his career at the moment? A tennis lesson from Roger Federer! The bizarre wish was made public by the Argentine who said: "Roger Federer is my idol.
I have been following him since a very long time. I really hope that we get a chance to play against one another in a tournament before he retires, because I want him to give me a tennis lesson. I hope one day I will meet him and I will have a chance to have fun on the court". Despite competing in the ATP World Tour since 2003, Leonardo never had a chance to meet his Swiss idol on a tennis court yet.
As the results are kicking in and Mayer is climbing the rankings, it could be that his dream tennis lesson could be not too far away. ALSO READ Boris Becker: Roger Federer is the G.O.A.T.
