12 years ago, there was a video shared by Wilson Equipment Bags from Miami that talked about how Williams and the Swiss maestro are goofy in real life. Firstly, let’s talk about the part where we saw Federer’s fun side. In that video, the 20-time Grand Slam champion was seen leaving his hotel and making his way to have some practice sessions.

While he was just walking out of the hotel, a person asked him where he was going, to which he gave a hilarious reply. He said, “To solve all the problems of the world.” After that, he was seen driving his own car, and while he was stopped at a traffic signal, he saw a friend. He shouted out to him just like two normal people in the street trying to catch up. Nevertheless, the fan was none other than the former Spanish tennis player Tommy Robredo.
