Tennis - Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar has been practising his tennis game recently and took to social media on Friday to ask Swiss tennis legend for some tips on his forehand. Tendulkar is the highest run-scorer in Tests and ODIs and also the only cricketer to have scored 100 international centuries and play 200 Test matches.
He posted a short video of him playing a forehand, tagging Federer and Wimbledon, saying, "Hey @rogerfederer! Any tips for my forehand?,” tweeted Sachin while also not forgetting to tag Wimbledon in it." Tendulkar is known to be a tennis fan and has been seen in the stands in the Royal Box at Wimbledon in the past.
In 2018, Tendulkar noticed Federer playing what appeared to be a cricket shot during a Wimbledon match and messaged the Swiss on Twitter, "As always, great hand-eye co-ordination. @rogerfederer, let’s exchange notes on cricket and tennis after you win your 9th @Wimbledon title."
Federer had responded, "why wait? I’m ready to take notes! @sachin_rt. Federer is currently recuperating from a knee injury and he will miss the rest of the 2020 season.
