Megastars Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal thrilled the onlooking crowd of 15,000 this weekend in New Delhi as part of the IPTL Exo tour. In this edition, Rafa got the better of Roger winning 6-5 (7-4 in breaker).
“There is a kids’ day exhibition in Australia Nickelodeon style, obviously where you hit and giggle with Scooby Doo, you know. This is not Scooby Doo, so clearly we are playing serious tennis,” Federer told the Indian Express of the label that the match was an “exo”.
“You have 15,000 people who are serious about tennis, so it is a question of who is in the crowd. Is the crowd filled with 10-year-olds because it’s the kids’ day or is it because people want to see great tennis and support the Indian Aces and the UAE Royals? Depends on how you see it, to me it is serious tennis with the fun aspect of playing for your team,” Federer added.
Nadal also teamed with Rohan Bopanna to beat Federer and his partner Marin Cilic in doubles.
