World Number three, Roger Federer was in action against Alexander Zverev in Santiago, Chile. In the midst of the match, a tennis fan from the audience yelled, “Te Amo Roger (I love you, Roger!)”. At first, Federer didn’t really understand what the fan was trying to express but gave a kind gesture, and later, Zverev demanded some cheering and said: “me….me no?”
His Latin American tour is spread in five cities of the continent. He began playing in Santiago, Chile (before that Federer spent some time with the press reporters in Argentina).
On Thursday, Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev landed in Buenos Aires, Argentina and they have a match coming up in the Argentine capital. Earlier, Juan Martin del Potro was scheduled to play against Roger Federer in Argentina, but due to his persisting injury, Zverev replaced the ‘Tower of Tandil’.
The ATP men, Federer and Zverev will next fly to Bogota, Colombia and excite their tennis fans there. Following that, they have an exhibition schedule in Mexico City, Mexico and they will end their tour in Quito, Ecuador.

ATP Tour Finals 2019, Roger Federer delivered a masterclass performance against the Serbian legend, Novak Djokovic in the last round-robin match and secured his semifinal spot in the tournament. Later, in the last four round, the Swiss legend fell to Stefanos Tsitsipas on London’s O2 Arena, after failing to convert 11 break points out of the 12 he received.
“Does it feel like it might be the best year yet [for the younger players]? Possibly,” said Federer. “Then the only issue is that it seems like me, Novak, and Rafa are healthy, healthier than maybe in previous years, as well.”
“So from that standpoint, I think they have proved their point this year by qualifying for the Finals, and also now Dominic [Thiem] showed again at these Finals and winning five titles, beating all of us top guys. Definitely it’s that next step they need and seems like Dominic is in his absolute prime right now. Yeah, I would think so,” the Swiss maestro added.
