Sinner praises Federer

Jannik Sinner also joins the chorus about Roger Federer’s farewell to tennis.

“We all know what Roger has done for the history of tennis,” notes the South Tyrolean. “As a child, when I decided to play tennis, he was my idol. He is my idol. For two, three years we didn’t know when he was coming back. When he announced his retirement today I was in the room, I heard his message on Instagram. He is a very important person who decided to leave tennis, I am sorry. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to play against each other in a tournament.”
