Rafael Nadal v/s Roger Federer in yesterday’s Semi-Finals in Wimbledon 2019 is the kind of match which will go down in history! It was a nail-biting situation for die-hard tennis fans as the two were up against each other. The atmosphere was extremely tense and the audience constantly cheered for the players. What they were witnessing in front of them was indeed legendary!
However, while most of us were glued to the sight of Federer playing against Nadal in an extraordinary match, one Indian boy amongst the audience was busy reading a book!

The dedication with which this young guy is glued to his book while history was LITERALLY being written in front of him has given rise to numerous hilarious reactions from netizens and has sparked a massive meme-fest!
Have a look:
Can't believe commentators were giving a kid in the audience flack for reading a book at #Wimbledon – least it wasn't an ipad – kudos to any kid picking up a book these days……#federervsnadal pic.twitter.com/JwM4cnrMNt

The Kid: I love reading books more anything in this world.
Me: That can't be true in every case. What if you're watching Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal in their first ever #Wimbledon semi-final?

In case you are wondering what the guy was reading, one person dug deep to find out that it was ‘Viking Myths and Sagas’.

Roger Federer might have won the match, but this guy just won the internet!
