Watch: Young Kid Imitates Roger Federer, Fans Pour In Love
Roger Federer, who is set to have a coin minted in his honour, is continuing to inspire younger generations to take up Tennis even after completing 21 years in professional Tennis. The Association of Professional Tennis (ATP) took to Twitter on Sunday to share a video where a young kid can be seen imitating Roger Federer while watching him play on TV. "It doesn't get much cuter than this. Still inspiring the next generation, @rogerfederer," the video was captioned.
Soon after ATP shared the video, fans were quick to respond to the post and appreciated the "footwork" of the youngster.
