During a long interview with ESPN, Lorenzo Musetti confided that Roger Federer has always been his favorite player. Musetti said: “Roger Federer is really special, as well as being my favorite player ever. Roger is a source of inspiration for the boys not only for what he has done on the court.
His charisma and his personality have always attracted me. Federer has created a positive image both on and off the pitch, inspiring young talent to follow his example.” Recently, Carlos Alcaraz also wanted to pay homage to the Swiss Maestro: “Roger Federer is undoubtedly the Messi of tennis.
Both enter people’s hearts, because they have the ability to make everything seem incredibly simple. Leo was a superhero during the World Cup in Qatar, he practically put Argentina on his shoulders and guided them to final success.
As for Roger, I loved his tennis and it was always a pleasure to watch him play. I constantly watched footage of his matches when I was younger.”
