Roger Federer proves English is hard even if you're fluent



- Federer won his 1st Round match after Mannarino retired at 2 sets all due to an injury sustained during the match
- During the on court interview Federer was asked if 'absence makes the heart grow fonder' with regards to Wimbledon being cancelled last year
- Federer (a native Swiss German speaker with a South African English speaking mother) is generally considered fluent in English as well as German and French but asked for the phrase to be repeated before admitting he didn't know what it means.
