In 2017, Izyan Ahmad, known to most as "Zizou", challenged Federer to a match during the U.S. Open press conference.

"Can you please continue to play for eight, nine years so that I can play you when I go pro?" Zizou asked Federer.

"Yes," Federer replied, laughing.

"Is that a promise?" Zizou followed up.

"Pinky promise," Federer said with a smile.

Last week, Roger Federer fulfilled that promise.
