It is not an unknown fact that <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/steven-smith" target="_blank">Steven Smith</a> is huge fan of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/roger-federer" target="_blank">Roger Federer</a>. In fact, Smith in an interview with <i>ESPNcricinfo</i> last year, mentioned how the nuances of tennis have helped him better his cricketing career. He had said, I loved playing tennis and I still love tennis. I watch it quite a lot. Roger Federer is my favourite, which is pretty well documented, but I always loved playing growing up. It was a way to be competitive. <p></p> <p></p>During the Round 4 of men's singles in the ongoing Australia Open, Smith was found cheering for Federer at Rod Laver, again. Smith was not just happy to witness a game where Federer proceeded for the quarter-finals but also enjoyed a fanboy moment by being snapped with him post the match. <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="en">Great to see <a href="https://twitter.com/rogerfederer?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@rogerfederer</a> again.

Federer and Smith are on top in their respective fields currently. Smith was the highest run-scorer during the 2017-18 Ashes while Federer seems unstoppable in tennis.
