Roger Feder, Novak Djokovic, Tommy Robredo, Marat Safin, Potito Starace, Andreas Seppi, Simone Bolelli and Filippo Volandri paid tribute to Federico Luzze who died last year of leukemia. The guys played an exo at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia to raise funds for FedeLux which was established as a leukemia foundation in memory of Luzzi. The most touching moment was Luzzi’s parents Maurizio and Paola meeting with Roger Federer.
“It was a nice match for me to play, knowing that Federico is up above watching us, having his parents here.” Federer said.
“We played in his honour and for the foundation that his family has created to fight against leukemia. It was very emotional for all of us who knew him. He was a very positive guy and I always remember him with a smile on his face.” Novak Djokovic said.
