‘Grandma, Roger Federer is on our roof!’ – WATCH as Federer plays tennis with inspirational youngsters
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.
Just incredible to see 💖

Three months later and they are back in the news after 20-time Grand Slam winner Federer surprised them before playing a match of rooftop tennis with them.
Of course it ended with a pasta meal as it was all part of an initiative/advertisement from pasta maker Barilla, who is one of Federer’s sponsors.
