17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer has departed from India after mesmerising Delhi at the Coca-Cola International Premier Tennis League (IPTL). But he has left behind some great memories of his India sojourn.
The former World No. 1 who said it’s ‘a pleasure and privilege’ to be in India, thoroughly enjoyed his short stay. From impressing the Delhi crowd with a short dance and a ‘Namaste’ to having the ‘Naan’ at ITC Maurya’s Bukhara restaurant, the Swiss maestro did it all. The legend also met some of Bollywood’s top stars and shook a leg with them apart from playing a celebrity doubles match.
