June 5, 2024 - Women's world number one golfer Nelly Korda has offered to coach tennis legend Roger Federer after seeing a video of his golf swing on Instagram.


The story began when Federer, widely considered one of the greatest tennis players of all time, posted a video to his Instagram page on Wednesday showing himself practicing his golf swing on the driving range. Federer is an avid golfer and is known to frequently play the sport during his time away from competitive tennis.



In the comments under the Instagram post, Korda left a response offering her assistance to the 20-time Grand Slam champion. "Do you need a coach?" wrote the top-ranked women's golfer.



Korda's offer quickly garnered attention given her status as one of the leading players in women's golf. The 24-year-old American daughter of former tennis pro Petr Korda currently holds the number one spot in the world rankings. She has proven herself as one of the most consistent performers on the LPGA Tour, with seven career tour victories including a major championship.


Federer's swing earned praise from onlookers, appearing smooth and athletically sound - as expected from an athlete of his caliber, even in a different sport. Other sports figures also responded in the comments, impressed by Federer's golf talents despite his expertise being in tennis.




Korda's message indicates she was duly impressed by Federer's form and natural athletic ability transferring to golf. Should Federer take her up on the offer, it would result in the rare spectacle of a current world number one golfer coaching a retired tennis great still learning the nuances of the links. Feder only recently retired from professional tennis in September, so working with an expert like Korda could help elevate his golf game that much further.


Only time will tell if Federer accepts the generous offer, but golf fans worldwide would be intrigued to follow the progress of such a unique student-teacher pairing between two undisputed legends from different but related sports.
