India skipper Virat Kohli along with his wife Anushka Sharma had a day out at the Melbourne Park watching the ongoing Australian Open. The couple met tennis ace Roger Federer and the Twitter handle of the Australian Open posted their picture which was captioned ‘Three Legends’. Somehow, the post did not go down well with the fans who felt how can it be three legends. Some also felt just meeting Roger Federer does not make them someone a legend. Some fans also felt that Anushka is not a legend. Meanwhile, Anushka has been traveling with the Indian cricket team in their tour in Australia.

Here is how the trolls reacted:
In 2015, Kohli, who had met Federer at the Australian Open, had described his earlier meeting as the day he would “never forget”.
Notably, Federer will take on in-form Greece youngster Stefanos Tsitsipas in the fourth round of the Australian Open on Sunday. The 37-year-old hasn’t dropped a set yet in the ongoing tournament despite being troubled by Daniel Evans in the second round.
