Famous professional tennis star — Roger Federer would be visiting India on business later this year and probably wouldn’t have enough time to see all the sights; but his fans have helped him with that.
“India, here I come! Looking forward to playing two matches in Delhi on December 7th & 8th. I’m beyond excited!” Federer tweeted.
