Sachin Tendulkar and Roger Federer are two of the biggest names in the sporting world, and words indeed aren’t enough to describe their prowess. While the former Indian batsman piled up a mountain of runs in international cricket, the latter Swiss maestro is arguably the greatest tennis player ever. The two sporting icons have also inspired many with their successes, and former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh is certainly one of them. The former Indian all-rounder recently recalled Federer and Tendulkar’s motivational quotes while posting a selfie from his gym session.

Yuvraj – who announced his retirement from international cricket last year – is himself counted as one of the biggest match-winners in World cricket. The southpaw demolished many potent bowling line-ups in his illustrious career while his knack of taking crucial wickets made him even a captain’s delight.
More than his on-field skills, however, it was Yuvraj’s dedication which made him a lethal weapon. Despite battling with cancer, the all-rounder didn’t just play the 2011 World Cup but also was the chief architect of India’s triumph. He bid farewell to the gentleman’s game in July 2019 but continues to follow the game. While he has praised many players for their impressive performances, the legendary all-rounder doesn’t hold back in criticizing any player or team management’s decision.
