Mic Drop: Roger, Rafa Delight Fans With These 9 Words…


Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have made careers out of carving up their opponents with their sudden impact ‘Serve +1’ patterns. Similarly, they can get a rise out of fans with just a handful of words.

At the 2017 Rolex Shanghai Masters, after a hard-fought final, they raised the roof with fans’ laughter after being persuaded to test their Chinese-language skills during the trophy presentation.

Join us as we count down 10 of the funniest player moments behind a microphone in this hilarious clip from ATP Uncovered presented by Peugeot. The memorable moments include a giddy Stefanos Tsitsipas learning that he qualified for the Nitto ATP Finals, and Yoshihito Nishioka reminding Shenzhen fans that his last name is ‘Nishioka’ not ‘Nishikori’.


And in case you’re wondering… Rafa says ‘Ai Shang Hai’ (‘Love Shanghai’) and Roger says ‘Ai Wang Qiu, Ai Shang Hai’ (‘Love Tennis, Love Shanghai’).
