"I took a photo with Federer, but Darren [Cahill] helped me. I was a little bit embarrassed to go ask for it. His father and I, we met each other and he told me, 'I heard you were feeling embarrassed about asking Roger for a photo'. Federer has an amazing talent, for what he did as a person on court and off it. He is a special person, a man who has a strong character," Halep told DigiSport.
