Sligo student set for tennis match with Roger Federer

A Sligo student is set to play a practice match against multiple tennis grand slam winner Roger Federer after catching the attention of the eight-time Wimbledon champion on Social Media.

Ollie White, from north Sligo, and his university friend Jamie Duff spoke to Ocean FM Sport on Sunday about how a casual Instagram mention drew a response from Federer – after they shared a video montage of themselves playing tennis on their local court during the lockdown.
