Social media went wild for world tennis legend and icon Roger Federer, who played tennis on the Shanghai courts with several Chinese kids.

The 20-time Grand Slam title winner is absolutely among the legends of the sport, and is still etched in the minds of fans today, despite his retirement having occurred over a year ago.

Sports pages and social media repeatedly show videos of the tennis player on the court and none of the tennis players present on the circuit are capable of giving the emotions that the Swiss has given.

Right now we are witnessing the fight at the top between world number one Novak Djokovic and the young people coming forward, in particular Carlos Alcaraz, Holger Rune and Jannik Sinner.

It must be said, however, that the times in tennis where the Big Three played and competed in Grand Slam finals seem far away. Also for this reason, reviewing images with the Swiss champion on the court is always good for this sport.

His official farewell came just over a year ago at the Laver Cup but to tell the truth the tennis player has not played an official match for over two years, since the quarter-finals at Wimbledon 2021 against the Polish Hubert Hurkacz.

In recent days Roger Federer returned to Shanghai where, among other things, he attended several matches of the tournament, won by the Polish champion. Federer appreciated it and in the meantime he still remained in Shanghai where he is spending a few days.

Always very helpful, the Swiss champion remained with the fans, photos and autographs as usual but not only. Roger, to the delight of the Chinese fans, took to the field and had some exchanges with the local fans and athletes.

Below you can watch some videos shared by the @hanaycp X account that have been making the rounds on social media. These videos testify to how much love and following Roger Federer enjoys: the video went viral within minutes of being shared on social media.
