Roger Federer put his full weight behind FC Basel in the Europa League semi-final, joining fellow fans at St. Jakob-Park to cheer on his hometown club against Chelsea on Thursday night.
“We are looking forward like little kids to this game,” he told Swiss newspaper Basler Zeitung ahead of the tie. “In the end it will be 2-1 for FC Basel and all will have experienced an unforgettable evening.”
Though Federer correctly predicted the score, Chelsea came up on the victorious end with the winning goal in injury time.
Federer is set to return to the courts in a couple weeks for the Mutua Madrid Open, where he’ll be the defending champion.
