The tickets for International Premier Tennis League (IPTL), might have left a big hole into the pockets of several tennis fans, but the joy of watching Roger Federer play live is something which is of utmost importance.
On Day 1 of the IPTL, the jam-packed stadium was full of fans that had travelled from different parts of the country, just to see Federer play. The fans, who said the prices of the tickets were slightly too much, at the same time agreed it was worth watching the Swiss legend play.
Smitha, a Federer fan hailing from Chennai, said that she had to sacrifice her one month’s salary to watch Federer play, but it was totally worth it.
“This trip to New Delhi has cost me around 35-40k which includes travelling and accommodation expenses. It’s around my one month’s salary. But I believe money is something I can earn again but I don’t know whether Roger Federer will come to India again to play. So I am very happy as I will get to see him play live and I thank IPTL for it.”
