Kohli, who donned the spectator’s hat alongside wife Anushka Sharma, watched defending champion Novak Djokovic beat Denis Shapovalov in the men’s singles third-round match and Serena Williams storm into the fourth round of women’s singles.
Kohli took to social media to post a picture of Federer, himself and Anushka.
“What a day at the Australian open. An amazing way to finish the Australian summer. Forever grateful #ausopen,” Kohii tweeted.
The official twitter handle of the Australian Open also tweeted a picture of the trio, who were all smiles captioning it as “three legends, one photo.” Federer, who is the defending champion at the Australian Open, has already sealed a place in the last 16 of the competition with a win against American Taylor Fritz on Friday.
Kohli on Friday led India to a 2-1 over Australia, their first against the hosts in a bilateral ODI series Down Under.
India also became the first country to return from Australia without losing a single series, having won the Test series 2-1 and drawn the T20 Internationals 1-1. – PTI
