Roger Federer says it will be an honor and privilege for him to play in India

Most successful tennis player of all time, Roger Federer, has said that it will be an honour and privilege to play in India and he has also shared that he can’t wait to go to the Asian country as he has always dreamt of going there.

Times of India quote Federer as saying, "For me going to India is like going to South America, like I felt in my initial years. It feels unreal because you've wanted it to happen for so long, and then finally it's happening." Federer will be in New Delhi in December to take part in the inaugural edition of International Premier Tennis League which is an initiative of Indian tennis legend Mahesh Bhupathi.

The Swiss star will be representing Indian Aces at the intercity event. The 17-time Grand Slam winner has some good knowledge about India as he said, "I understand that the north of India is very different from the south, culturally, languages, the food you eat and the clothes you wear.

It would be impossible to experience all of India at one go. Whenever I speak to Indians anywhere in the world I notice that they speak of their country with a great sense of pride, which is very nice, very sweet. You all have a great history.
