The tributes in honor of Roger Federer on social networks and in the interviews keep being a lot. One of the most "viral" ones in the last hours was the Francesco Totti's tweet. The former AS Roma Star wrote: 'Congratulations Roger Federer, the world No.
1 in tennis again! An eternal champion. I hope to see you playing for many more years'. Totti met Federer for the first time in May 2006 during Rome Masters. 'The professionalism is what surprises me the most. And the passion he transmits.
This is fundamental in order to have a long career', added Totti, who retired from football last year. 'When he plays I watch him on TV closely, he is a fantastic champion.'
