Roger Federer’s photo with Blackpink goes viral with more than a million likes



Blink and you would have missed it.

But the worlds of tennis and K-pop collided on Roger Federer’s Instagram, of all places, when he posted a photo of himself with K-pop stars Blackpink in Paris.

“My kids said this was a clear IG post,” the 20-time grand slam winner noted, and considering his likes topped one million, it seems they were right.

Blackpink – made up of four members, Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rosé – is one of the biggest bands in the world, with more YouTube subscribers than any other music artist and an army of fans known as “Blinks” – a contraction of “black” and “pink”.

“blink????” current world No. 7 Coco Gauff commented on Federer’s photo, while Denis Shapovalov, who reached the third round at this year’s Australian Open, said, “Hahaha yessss,” next to a sunglasses emoji.

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 photos to Instagram from Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday.

In March, he joins Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour to co-chair the 2023 Met Gala with singer Dua Lipa and actors Penélope Cruz and Michaela Coel.
