The 18-time Grand Slam champion revealed, speaking openly to Roger: "I want you to know that I appreciate how nice you were to my boys, especially in the early years.

You would come out of your dressing room and say hello, hello to everyone." She continued: "What impressed me, along with the beauty of your game, is the fact that you are a great sportsman on and off the pitch. Win or lose, you have always been very kind and a great gentleman."

Good luck and I hope you are happy."

2022 historic year for tennis

2022 is a historic year for the tennis world. Several important facts have occurred, especially for this sport and it concerns among others the retirement of legends of this sport of the caliber of Serena Williams and above all Roger Federer.

The Swiss champion, twenty times winner of Grand Slam titles, has left an imprint or rather an unimaginable legacy within tennis and the whole sport as a whole. Millions of fans have admired the exploits of the tennis player, and many consider Federer as the most loved sportsman in the history of sport.

A significant figure regarding this detail are the 19 ATP Fans Favorite Awards titles, a record that saw Federer as the most loved tennis player from 2003 until last year, 2021. Only this year, with the retirement of the Swiss, has it been his great rival Rafael Nadal to collect this award.
