After Roger Federer announced his retirement from tennis, CNN Sports suggested that the Swiss Maestro should use the extra time to brush up his Spanish. The reason? Roger couldn’t help laughing during a past interview he had with former CNN correspondent Pedro Pinto.
“Now that he’s retiring from tennis, maybe Roger Federer has time to brush up on his Spanish?” He struggled to keep it together when Pedro Pinto interviewed him in 2009,” CNN Sports tweeted recently.

Another fun interview with Roger Federer was taken by skiing world champion Mikaela Shiffrin at 2018’s Laver Cup.
The clip went viral again recently as tennis fans around the world had another good laugh seeing it. The most amusing part is at the end of the interview when Shiffrin, a world-class athlete, shows her nervousness, triggered by standing near an athlete of Roger Federer’s caliber.
