Billie Jean King on Roger Federer’s Zizou Pledge: “Dreams Come True!”

After Roger Federer fulfilled the promise he made 5 years ago to Zizou, a youngster from John McEnroe’s tennis academy, Billie Jean King, impressed by the deed reacted on Twitter. “Dreams come true. Congratulations to Zizou from the John McEnroe Tennis Academy!

Keep it up!” wrote Billie Jean King.

““When the GOAT makes a promise, he keeps it!

That’s what makes him such an idol! We spent half a day with him, but his humility, his grace, his smiling personality, his ability to put everyone around him at ease instantly, magnifies his personality and shows me that one cannot be a great sportsman unless you are a great person first.

Thank you Mr. Federer, for the best day of my life, for these memories and I will be eternally grateful to you for keeping your little promise!” HAPPY BIRTHDAY GOAT!” Izyan wrote on Instagram sharing the video.

Federer’s promise kept

Thanks to the help of his sponsor Barilla, Roger Federer was able to meet Izyan Ahmad, better known as Zizou, a teenage tennis player who challenged Federer to a match half a decade ago.

Federer made the decision to go to Zurich and meet the young fan as he didn’t have any competitions scheduled. The entire meeting was recorded and posted on Barilla’s YouTube channel. “A surprising story about a fan, a question and one of the greatest tennis players of all time.

It’s been 5 years since Izyan Ahmad, better known as Zizou, challenged Federer for a match at the US Open press conference. With Barilla, Roger Federer decides to surprise his fan by transporting him to Zurich and keeping his promise.

It’s time for Zizou to play against Federer, who has 20 Grand Slam titles under his belt,” reads the caption of Barilla’s yet emotional promotional video.
