Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are certainly two living legends and both these tennis players have a huge fan following. While Rafael is presently ranked world’s number 2 in the men’s singles tennis, Roger is sitting at the number 3 spot. Their fans don’t like to miss a single game of their favourite players and when these two come against each other, the match is definitely a big one.
One tennis match that will be remembered for a long time is the semi-final of Wimbledon 2019 in which Rafael and Roger clashed against each other. It was a very exciting and interesting match with everyone glued to their TV screens but what if we tell you that there was one person who was present in the stadium during that match but he was not watching the match but instead reading a book.
It may be quite shocking but it is true and the social media users are going crazy over this book reader who is a little Indian boy. What surprised people more was the fact that he was so engrossed in reading the book that even a Roger Vs Federer match had no importance for him.
Some are praising the boy for his concentration while several others are annoyed as to how someone can waste such a big amount that has been spent on buying the ticket. However, few also praised the fact that he was reading a book and was not using an I-pad or a tablet.
Here are some of the selected reactions from social media users:

The Kid: I love reading books more anything in this world.
Me: That can't be true in every case. What if you're watching Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal in their first ever #Wimbledon semi-final?

Can't believe commentators were giving a kid in the audience flack for reading a book at #Wimbledon – least it wasn't an ipad – kudos to any kid picking up a book these days……#federervsnadal pic.twitter.com/JwM4cnrMNt
