I feel I can learn a lot from those guys. They teach me things that nobody else ever teached me. There is nothing I an afraid of." "I already got many suggestions from Roger before playing my first match. I try to listen at him and think about it when I play.

If you add those two guys's strengths, you can get helped a lot. Roger makes it easier, which I appreciate a lot. He doesn't tell me too many informations. He is very efficient and effortless." Tsitsipas is not active on social media by himself anymore: "I may continue for one more month, a year or even a whole decade - who knows? But I keep my YouTube Channel Active.

WhatsApp and YouTube are the apps I mainly use now. It's going well so far and I feel comfortable." Federer is set to add two additional exhibition matches to his schedule. Last week the Swiss player announced he will play against Alexander Zverev in Bogota, Colombia, on November 18, then with Juan Martin del Potro in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November 20.
