Roger Federer’s photo with Blackpink goes viral with more than a million likes
Blink and you’ll have missed it.
But the worlds of tennis and K-pop everywhere collided on Roger Federer’s Instagram, as he posted a picture of himself with K-pop star Blackpink in Paris.
“My kids said that was a definite IG post,” the 20-time Grand Slam winner commented and as her likes topped one million, it looks like they were right.
Blackpink – made up of four members, Jenny, Jisoo, Lisa and Rose – are one of the biggest bands in the world, with more YouTube subscribers and an army of fans known as “blinks” than any other music artist. – A portmanteau of “. black” and “pink.”
“Blinking????” Current world No. 7 Coco Goff commented on Federer’s photo while Denis Shapovalev, who reached the third round of this year’s Australian Open, commented with a sunglasses emoji: “Hahaha yeah”.
Federer, who retired from competitive tennis in September, posted the photo exactly five years after he defeated Marin Cilic in the men’s Australian Open final – his 20th and final Grand Slam title.
Since retiring, Federer has spent more time in the fashion world, posting pictures on Instagram from Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday.
In March, he will join Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour in co-chairing the 2023 Met Gala alongside singer Dua Lipa and actresses Penelope Cruz and Michael Coyle.
