HIGHLIGHTS

  • Sachin Tendulkar and Roger Federer often keep in touch through social media
  • The two legends have engaged in funny banters in the past as well
  • Tendulkar is often seen in the VIP box at Wimbledon, cheering Federer from the stands

Sachin Tendulkar has rarely left his home during the lockdown in India due to the Covid-19 pandemic so it was surprise to see him play outdoor sports on Friday when he hit the tennis court with his friends.

Sachin Tendulkar posted a video on his social media accounts in which he could be seen playing tennis with his buddies at a sports complex in Mumbai.

Tendulkar even tagged his friend Roger Federer in the video, asking for tips on his forehand from the tennis legend.

Federer hasn’t replied on the video yet but it surely got Tendulkar’s fans excited.

Two years back it was Federer’s cricket skills that floored Tendulkar, who praised the Swiss great’s hand-eye co-ordination on the grasscourt after a video of him playing a tennis shot which seemed like a forward defence (cricket shot) during a Wimbledon round-of-16 match in 2018.

Both Tendulkar and Federer engaged in a funny banter on twitter after Wimbledon posted a the video of Federer, asking the ICC to rate his forward defence.

“As always, great hand-eye co-ordination. @rogerfederer, let’s exchange notes on cricket and tennis after you win your 9th Wimbledon title,” wrote Tendulkar on Twitter.

Federer also replied to Tendulkar and said that he is ready to take notes now itself.

Tendulkar and Federer share a great relationship off the field and court, having met on several occasions in the past, especially at Wimbledon. Tendulkar has always rated Federer as his favourite tennis player as well.
