Yesterday, during Wimbledon 2018, Roger Federer flaunted his cricketing skills by playing a click-like shot while playing against Adrian Mannarino. The top-seed breezed into the quarterfinals and won by 6-0 7-5 6-4. The official account of Wimbledon shared the video of Federer and asked the ICC to rate his shot. The International Cricket Council wrote back saying he is the number one test player. They also created a meme which praised the greatness of Sachin Tendulkar and Roger Federer. Now, a few minutes ago, Sachin Tendulkar praised the shot.
The master blaster took to Twitter and showered words of praises on the Swiss maestro. Tendulkar went on to say that he would love to exchange notes cricket and tennis after the tennis ace win the Wimbledon 2018. His tweet read, “As always, great hand-eye co-ordination. @rogerfederer, let’s exchange notes on cricket and tennis after you win your 9th @Wimbledon title.”

With this win, the Swiss maestro knocked off the 11th opponent. Post the match, he addressed the press and said, "I feel like these streaks just happen. You can't plan for them anyway because one point can change the outcome of a set. If you break it down, it could be one shot really. That's not something you can always control. Of course, if you give yourself maximum chances, you're playing well, you have super focus, then these streaks are kind of possible.”
