The two Italian youngsters who went viral earlier this year after playing rooftop tennis got the surprise of a lifetime as Roger Federer paid them a visit.
Vittoria Oliveri and Carola Pessina hit the headlines in April after they were filmed playing “socially distance” tennis on the top of a roof in Liguria, Italy.
