Roger Federer made his long-awaited return to tennis this week after six months recovering from a knee injury at the Hopman Cup — where he lost a singles match to rising star Alexander Zverev 7-6, 6-7, 7-6.
But the loss didn’t seem to get Fed down. As he watched his Swiss countrymen compete in the International team event, the arena’s “Bongo Cam” focused on the tennis ace, showing him on the big screen with bongo drums superimposed beneath him.
The 18-time Grand Slam winning legend was totally game for his impromptu Air Bongo performance.
