The number one player in the ATP rankings dropped his racket and took a Football ball, showing aptitude in the most popular sport in the world. "Lets make Kaka the tennis ball, because he is better than me," Federer joked.

The two confessed an admiration and exchanged mutual compliments. "I really like tennis and I always wanted to meet him. So, I went to the Madrid Open and had that first contact. I admire Roger Federer a lot," said Kaka.

Federer, meanwhile, revealed that football is his favourite sport and he is a fan of Brazilian football. "In Madrid we talked a little and it was cool because I always liked football, even more than Brazil because grew up watching a generation of talented players. And Kaka is one of those quality players," said Federer.

Currently he lives in Zurich, but that can always gives a last in his homeland. "They are 100 miles away. For Brazilians it is not nothing, but here in Switzerland is like crossing the country," he says, laughing.

"We have pretty much the same size, the same age and I think some similarities. But he is more beautiful than me," says Federer.
