Felix in an informal interview at the tournament, admitted that Federer is one of the most famous person and said that he didn’t expect that he will receive a text from Roger who congratulated him after winning his maiden title this year. Federer and Felix both have met on one occasion at Halle Germany in 2021 ro16 where the Canadian dominated over the Swiss international.

Roger, like, even though, he’s in tennis, you know, he’s definitely the most famous person that’s ever texted me. When I won my first title this year, he texted me and said that he was just very happy for me and congrats. And I thought, like, that was really nice. I didn’t expect that. The creepiest place I played tennis is actually in a church, the basement. They had, like, an open gym. There was a net, but it was so fast and just unplayable. You couldn’t play. So we played there once and then never again. Yeah, that was really strange. When I was in elementary school, the first year, I was, like, six. They asked, what job do you want to do later? And people would put, like, astronaut firefighter and me.It was just the tennis player. It would be pretty cool to have the things wrote, like, about tennis from a really young age. Just to put that, like, eventually when I finish my career” he said in the video posted by Hall Of Fame’s official Twitter account.
