Serena Williams And Roger Federer’s Heartwarming Post-Match Interview Is Acing Hearts

The first day of 2019 had something extra special in store for Tennis fans around the world. A mixed doubles match between Serena Williams and Roger Federer courtesy of the Hopman Cup in Perth, Australia. Both the legends were representing their respective countries USA and Switzerland. Serena’s partner was Frances Tiafoe while Roger played with Belinda Bencic.

And *spoiler alert* the Swiss team won the match 2-1.

The GOAT face-off was an absolute pleasure to watch. But what delighted fans more, was the post-match interview. Both legends couldn’t stop applauding each other’s serves and showed tremendous respect for each other’s game.

23 time Grand Slam winner, Serena Williams praised her opponent by saying,

“His serve is super underrated. There is a reason why he is the greatest because you can’t be that great and not have such an awesome weapon.”

With 20 Grand Slams under his belt, Roger Federer wasn’t shy with his praise either. He remarked,

“It was great great fun. She is a great champion and you see how focused and determined she is and I love that about her.”

Watch the full interview for serious feels!

The Twitterati gave a huge thumbs up to this interaction. There was gratitude from every corner and some even proclaimed their photo to be the ‘Selfie of the year’.
