Federer knows a lot about cricket: Tendulkar

LONDON: It takes a lot to bowl over Sachin Tendulkar as bowlers around the world would confess, but tennis ace Roger Federer managed to do just that by his knowledge of cricket when the two legends caught up during the Wimbledon Championship here.

Tendulkar, a self-confessed Federer fan, met the winner of 16 Grand Slams at the All- England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club after the World No. 3 beat David Nalbandian to advance to the fourth round.

Tendulkar chatted for an hour with the Swiss and posed with him for the shutterbugs.

“Spent an hour with Roger Federer, chatting on the balcony of the Wimbledon Royal box. What a humble guy! And by the way, he knows a lot about cricket!!” Tendulkar tweeted later.

The two also had dinner together after Federer's match.

Federer also talked about his meeting with Tendulkar on his Facebook page. “Today was a special day, played a good match and had the chance to catch up with the great Indian cricket star Sachin Tendulkar,” read the status message on his Facebook page. — PTI
