The video also shows Sachin talking about Yuvraj Singh, who once claimed that Andy Roddick was better than Roger Federer. Tendulkar even advised Yuvraj to start watching Federer and his tennis experience would change, to which Yuvi said that let’s compare both at the end of their careers.
Sachin also claimed that he is still waiting for Yuvraj to come face to face and discuss the matter.
