Yeah, it’s a cheap publicity stunt for a pasta company — but you can’t fake the excitement the girls had when their tennis hero showed up out of nowhere!!

BACKSTORY — During the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, 13-year-old Vittoria and 11-year-old Carola went SUPER VIRAL for their rooftop match, which took place on top of two buildings in Liguria, Italy.
The video was shared all over the world — with people giving ’em huge props for finding a way to play even though courts were closed.
Fast forward to July … the girls were told they were going to be interviewed by the news media about their viral moment — not knowing Roger Federer was secretly waiting behind the scenes!
During the interview, both girls praised Roger as their favorite player — with Vittoria saying, “If I were to meet him, I would jump on him or I would be starstruck!
That’s when the current #4-ranked player in the world appeared out of nowhere — AND
THE LOOK ON THE GIRLS’ FACES IS PRICELESS!!!
“We cannot believe it, Federer is on our rooftop!!!”
The moment was awesome — they took selfies, they chatted … and then they played rooftop tennis!!!

Federer and the girls successfully volleyed for a bit … but naturally, some shots came up short and became a hazard down below.

No one cared about that though — the lost balls are probably collector’s items now!

The whole surprise was coordinated by the Barilla pasta company –which explains why everyone scarfed down noodles after the match!

Federer also hooked up his new friends with another incredible experience — 2 entries to Rafael Nadal‘s tennis camp!!

‘Novak Djokovic has a big chance to get back in the Grand Slam race,’ says analyst

The Australian Open will provide Novak Djokovic with ‘a big chance’ to get him back into the Grand Slam race, says Radmilo Armenulić.

The world number one lost ground to Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros earlier this month with the Spaniard beating him in the final to win his 20th Grand Slam and draw him level with Roger Federer on the all-time list.

Djokovic, by comparison, is on 17, but he has a supreme record in Melbourne, and former Serbia Davis Cup captain Armenulić has warned against writing him off just yet.

“There are many stories that the Grand Slam will not be played in Australia, which is Novak’s great chance for a new, 18th Grand Slam title, which would completely return him to the race,” Armenulić told alo.rs.

“If the tournament still takes place, which we all hope, the least Novak will do is settle with Federer in terms of the number of weeks at the top of the ATP list.

“Nole is already warming up for such a scenario, I see that he will play in Vienna, win that tournament and calmly wait for the end of the season.

“I am sure that Novak has already recovered from the crisis, while Nadal will only be able to endanger him at the Masters in Paris.”
