Unbelief in Italian girls: ‘Grandma, Federer’s on our roof!’

Roger Federer has delivered two Italian tennis girls Saturday the day of their lives.

During the coronalockdown, a video by Vittoria (13) and Carola (11), who played with each other from the roofs of their apartment building in Finale Ligure, went around the world.

Also Federer saw the video and the Swiss decided to surprise the girls with an unannounced visit. And of course he had his racket with him to also hit a ball on the roofs. Vittoria and Carola reacted frantically: “Grandma, Federer is on our roof!

Return at Australian Open

While international tennis starts up again, Federer rehabilitates from knee surgery. He wants to make his comeback at the Australian Open in 2021. The Swiss, who turns 8 August 39, hasn’t played for a whole year.
