Roger Federer set tennis Twitter ablaze on Thursday. He reacted to fans’ comments and made posts of his own, but the funniest dynamic was when he and his followers dig in the archives of tennis to pay a visit some legends.
It all started with a tweet…
The Swiss Maestro chose the “Bring back your favorite retired player” option.
But have you noticed how the questions says “which and why”? Federer hadn’t answered the latter. Seeing this, his fans proceeded to make suggestions as to which tennis legend Federer should like to bring back on the Tour.
Bjorn Borg? Andy Roddick? Jim Courier? Best part? Federer took the time to react to those hypotheses… Here are some of his best answers.
Amazing I had the chance to be on the court with him so many times, I learned so much from him!
You cannot be serious!?!?!
Loved watching him play,
So happy i played him!
Watched her for hours,
mesmerizing forehand, footwork and attitude.
What a champ!
Carlito, loved him.
Not sure what he is up to now!
One of my childhood idols!
