Federer and his partner Belinda Bencic came out on top, beating Williams and Frances Tiafoe 4-2 4-3 (5-3). It was said that Williams was disappointed that she didn’t win, but while she was still on the court as her opponents claimed they’re victory, she showed nothing but love to them and congratulated the players on their win.

After the match, the two talked about how much they enjoyed the friendly competition. She even praised Roger Federer as “the greatest of all time.”

“It was a great experience,” Williams said. “I’m sorry it had to finish; I was just warming up. It was such fun, we grew up together. It was super cool. I wanted to take pictures and bring my baby out.” She continued saying, “This guy (Federer) is great, both off the court and on the court. I think his serve is super-underestimated. It’s a killer serve, you can’t read it. I watched him all the time and I never knew how amazing it was.”

Federer couldn’t believe he had the opportunity to face Serena Williams. He also praised her on her excellent serving skills, according to USA Today.

“What a pleasure. What an honor,” Federer said. “It was nerve-wracking, too. I thought, ‘I’ve got to win this point but it is Serena Williams.’ People talk about her serve so much and I see why it is such a wonderful move because you just can’t read it.”

To make things even more special, the two snapped a selfie to lock in the special moment for memories. Many are hoping to see the stars battle in a one-on-match, so they could really determine who’s the greatest of all time.
