INDIAN WELLS – A funny moment during Roger Federer’s practice with Alexander Zverev Wednesday at the BNP Paribas Open.
A rocket serve from the young up-and-coming German may (or may not) have touched the line. But a fan sitting in the packed stands above Practice Court 1 took it upon himself to make the call
Not one to argue with one of his devoted flock, Federer was happy to go along with it.
When Zverev jokingly questioned it, Federer just flipped his head in the direction of the impromptu linesman, the final arbiter on this day.
