‘Game Set & Match’ to college students after Federer prank

Remember that story about the two college students who tagged Roger Federer with their Instagram tennis video?

Ollie White from north Sligo and his college pal Jamie Duff claimed that the eight-time Wimbledon champion responded to them with a message indicating he’ll be willing to play the duo in a practice match for charity once the pandemic passes.

Here’s the answer:

If this proves to be part of your final year university project, it deserves a 1:1!
