Roger Federer and Sachin Tendulkar are known to be very good friends off-field and the master blaster have been seen attending Federer matches. The two legendary players were involved in a friendly banter on Tuesday after The International Cricket Council (ICC) and Wimbledon on Monday were involved in a friendly banter discussing the quality of Roger Federer’s forward defense.
After looking at Federer’s shot during the match against Mannarino, the Master Blaster was so impressed by the skill that invited him to “exchange notes” after the tournament.
“As always, great hand-eye co-ordination. @rogerfederer, let’s exchange notes on cricket and tennis after you win your 9th title,” Tendulkar tweeted.

The eight-time Wimbledon champion accepted the invitation and replied “Why wait? I’m ready to take notes! @sachin_rt.”
The Little Master wrote in response, “Ha ha ha..done. @rogerfederer, lesson 1 will be the straight drive only if you help me with my backhand my friend!!

“Unfortunately won’t be able to come see you play this year but will be glued to the television…Wish you all the very best! Hopefully next year @Wimbledon.”
