- Roger Federer won the Australian Open final against Rafael Nadal
- Twitter noticed the two were wearing the same shoes for the match
- Many decided they too would pick up similar pairs for themselves
At a time when most people were finding it hard to look away from the game or the scoreboard, some on Twitter couldn't stop focusing on the players' footwear. While some wondered if the two decided on this prior to the match, others decided they too would pick up similar pairs for themselves. Many also pointed out that both the players were also dressed in the same colour scheme - white tshirt and pairs of black shorts.
This isn't entirely a new phenomenon but Twitter just couldn't keep calm and carry on with the game, thanks to the same shoes.
As if charisma of these two was not enough. Those shoes! #AusOpen- Sairee Chahal (@Sairee) January 29, 2017
