Mumbai: Amidst what was a nerve-wracking clash between perhaps two of the biggest names in tennis, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, a kid in the audience apparently had bigger hobby than playing tennis. While we do not blame anyone for reading a book, the internet is taken aback by the kid’s lack of interest in one of the greatest rivalries in Wimbledon 2019.
Federer and Nadal met again 11 years after the memorable match of 2008. With the audience glued to the match, the camera suddenly showed us a kid who was unfazed by the action, and busy reading a book.
Have a look at the tweets that follow-
Can't believe commentators were giving a kid in the audience flack for reading a book at #Wimbledon - least it wasn't an ipad - kudos to any kid picking up a book these days......#federervsnadal pic.twitter.com/JwM4cnrMNt— Mark A. Thomson (@MarkAlanThomson) July 13, 2019
The Kid: I love reading books more anything in this world.
Me: That can't be true in every case. What if you're watching Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal in their first ever #Wimbledon semi-final?
