Roger Federer is defending his Wimbledon Crown in the 2018 edition and gunning for his 9th title in this tournament. Federer, who is growing better with age, is redefining class when he caught cricket lovers in splits playing a forward-defensive shot with his racquet in his Round of 16 win over Adrian Manarinno in straight sets in Wimbledon 2018.
During a game, Manarinno made a fault during a serve and Federer, taking a leaf out of his admirer and Indian cricketing god Sachin Tendulkar’s forward defensive shot, played an identical shot to catch cricket pundit in splits.
Even Tendulkar noticed Federer’s cricketing brilliance and praised it, and wished him luck to win his 9th Wimbledon crown.
Here’s Federer’s forward-defensive shot with his tennis racquet.
