Yesterday, the maximum crowd gathered at the Centre Court as Roger Federer took on Serbia's Dusan Lajovic by 6-1, 6-3, 6-4. His fans who were at the venue were obviously happy with his victory and post winning the game, he thanked his fans by not only waving out to them but also signed a few autographs. Amongst the fans, there was this little girl of Indian origin who caught the attention of the tennis. The little girl held a pluck card which read, “Roger can I have your headband pleeease.”
The tennis ace obviously read the poster and approached the little girl. As requested by the fan, he gave her his headband and the little girl broke into a big smile after he receiving the gift. The gesture invited a loud applause from the audience at the Center court. Check out the video below.
