People have been stuck in quarantine from the past many months and that’s when two Italian girls decided to play tennis from their respective rooftops amid the pandemic. For maintaining social distancing, the two junior players from Liguria, Italy took their game to a whole new level in April.

Checkout the video here-

Most incredible thing you’ll see today.

These two women are playing tennis from rooftop to rooftop in the Italian city of Liguria to pass time during the pandemic.

The video went viral on social media and showed how 13-year old Vittoria and 11 year old Carola became overnight sensations and were recognized by many people. However, after three months, the girls got a chance to meet Roger Federer and also played a friendly match with him.

Incredible to see... again! One of the most spectacular and unusual tennis matches we have seen in a while. Liguria, Italy 🇮🇹 @rogerfederer #TheRooftopMatch pic.twitter.com/a7FfCSkvr0

In the video, it can be seen that the girls thought that they were in-between just another interview and weren't aware at all that Roger Federer was at their rooftop. They were praising Federer as he is their favorite player and that’s when they saw that the professional player was standing right there. The girls were seen screaming in excitement and then Roger asked the girls if they wanted to play a friendly match with him on their rooftop. The girls yelled in joy, “We cannot believe it, Federer is on our rooftop!”

Now, this video has also gone viral on the internet and has around 5.8K re-tweets and over 1.8M views on social media. Here’s what people on Twitter have to say about it-

Most hilarious part for me was Vittoria and Karolina screaming to "Nana" that Federer's was on their rooftop. Nana was probably thinking: "Yeah, I know. They kicked out on the street to get to you!"
