Tennis fans are quite aware of the good sense of humor of Roger Federer. He showed that glimpse once again when one of his interviews got disrupted in the middle. Unlike other athletes, he didn’t just sit down there quietly but thought of doing some fun.

“You want to wait for it? Please be advised that the interview is starting, we are ready, thank you for letting us know,” said Federer sarcastically.

It was a light moment as instead of just waiting for the interview to resume, the Swiss Maestro started to speak the lines of the anchor himself. The anchor couldn’t control himself and started laughing as well when Federer was speaking those lines.

“We did enjoy our day, yeah we did. I have to leave. She told me to leave,” joked the 20-time Grand Slam champion.
