Roger Federer is known for his pinpoint accuracy as a tennis player. Ideal for playing a game, betrothed Elina Svitolina and Gael Monfils thought in training. Only things did not go as expected.
Taking up the racket up close and hitting the tennis balls around the head of Monfils: this was the assignment for Svitolina and Federer from the ATP during a training match. Svitolina was the first to hit the ball well around her fiancé’s head. Federer could not stay behind, so the Swiss went to work.
The first attempts went well, but then it went wrong. Federer aimed the tennis ball fully into the crotch of Monfils. The Frenchman had to recover from that surprising and painful shot.
