Kroos also recalled his few meetings with Federer and expressed that the Swiss maestro is a pleasant guy and said it is not hard for him to be a fan of the 20- time Grand Slam master.
“I am absolutely convinced of this – even if I can only speak for the time I have experienced. I can’t judge the rest, but even then, it could be hard to surpass Roger. For me, it’s a mix of success and the fact that his tennis is nice to look at,” Kroos told Eurosport.
“I’ve met him a few times and can confirm that he is a totally pleasant guy. He comes across as a family man. He is interested in soccer – even if he didn’t hit the jackpot with FC Basel. But he has to go through it. So, it’s not hard for me to be a fan of Roger Federer,” he added.
Before, Kroos was seen relishing by playing tennis after getting the 100-volley challenge by Federer.
So far, the Swiss maestro won 103 ATP singles titles with 20 Grand Slams which is an all-time record as he feasibly one of the greatest athletes ever to play tennis.
