More than 1,500 people came to the Eynard Palace in Geneva to see Roger Federer and Bjorn Borg promoting the 2019 Laver Cup. The Swiss legend was pretty emotional: "Thank you for coming. I hope to meet you in September at the Laver Cup.
Seeing so many people around me always touches me. This is probably the reason why I keep playing", said Federer. "I love spending with time with Bjorn, one of my biggest idols. He was great." The 64-year-old fan Irine told Tdg that her 106-year-old mother is a close Federer's fan: "She is unconditional.
Despite she is 106 years old, she woke up at 3:00 AM to see him playing in Australia. She does not miss a match. Roger does it well. He signed a poster for her 105th birthday. Now that is in the living room." 49-year-old Assen: "Federer is an amazing player, his longevity surprises me.
Especially his nice personality. Today I will wait for the right moment." 42-year-old David is emotional too: "Not having parents, I identified with him to behave correctly. His humility touches me a lot. I never watch him live.
I am always afraid that I bring him bad luck." 76-year-old Robert: "Whether he wins or loses, he stays honest. Tennis earned popularity over the entire world with him. He appreciates his sport like no other."
27-year-old Deborah prefers Rafael Nadal: "We cannot get anything better in tennis. So classy! There are no words."
