Roger Federer and Stefanos Tsitsipas enjoy a fantastic relationship. The Greek has always looked at the Swiss as his idol, and he confessed that he is playing a one-handed backhand because he wanted to follow Roger and Pete Sampras. On the other side, the former world no.1 was extremely happy to having Stefanos play with him at the Laver Cup for Team Europe.
