Kids from Sierre meet Yves and Roger

02.05.2006 | Off Court

Around 100 kids from Sierre (sout-western part of Switzerland) had the chance to play mini-tennis on Saturday morning with Yves Allegro and Severin Lüthi (Captain of the Swiss Davis Cup team). Much to the joy of the children present, the world's number one, Roger Federer, showed up just before lunchtime to spend some time with the kids.

 

The regional tennis association, TC Sierre as well as Swiss Tennis invited all interested kids to a game of tennis. They had great fun competing against Yves Allegro or Severin Lüthi on mini-tennis fields. Fun clearly was the main goal, guaranteeing for a terrific time - clearly to the amusement both of the kids and the tennis players.

 

Roger's visit to the event is a result of the close friendship between Yves Allegro and Roger. The children had the possibility to meet Roger and have their picture taken with him. Roger addressed all the kids in the end, inviting them to play tennis - he had, after all, just begun with it some time ago - and now we can all see where he has come.
