Raveena Tandon’s kids meet Roger Federer

Raveena Tandon Thadani and husband Anil, who were in London recently, not just watched the semi-finals live at Wimbledon but also met current champ Roger Federer, who won his seventh Wimbledon title on Sunday evening.

Says a source close to Raveena,

Anil wanted their children Rasha and Ranbir Vardhan to watch a Wimbledon match live so all four of them went to London. Raveena also wanted to watch Mahesh Bhupathi, Sania Mirza and Leander Paes play, though she’s not much of a tennis fan. They went to watch Sania play against the William sisters — Serena and Venus. Along with Rasha and Ranbir, the couple also took along Ritiesh Sidhwani’s son.

During the break, when Raveena and Anil went to the Players Lounge, they saw Federer relaxing there. Apparently, he’d come there with his daughters and was having a cup of tea. The children wanted to get pictures clicked with him and the tennis ace charmingly obliged. Our source says that the actress was surprised to see no bodyguards around Federer.

Raveena, who is now back with her family in Mumbai, says,

Yes, we met Federer at Wimbledon last week. He’s one of the most humble and down-to-earth celebrities I have ever met. We were all rooting for him at the finals even though I don’t follow tennis much. We were really thrilled when he saw him win the match.
