It’s always fun to see two legends interact in any way and that is why seeing the Twitter exchange between Roger Federer and The Rock is so exciting.
While no one really knows how much Dwayne John follows tennis, but if the actor did end up watching the Australian Open this summer, we now know for sure who he’ll be cheering for, and hoping he wins his sixth Australian Open title — and the 20th grand slam crown of his career — at Melbourne Park.
Today, Roger uploaded a picture of his on Twitter asking ‘The Rock’ if he was nailing the ‘smouldering look’.
Hey @TheRock, am I doing the “Smoldering Intensity” right? ðŸ¤” pic.twitter.com/5A5ILEXYNK

Since he had referenced the actor’s latest movie ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’, in such a perfect way, his tweet got a lot of appreciation from people on Twitter.
ðŸ¤—ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜˜ this is too cute Roger lol! Love ya! Good luck in AO!!! ðŸ˜˜â?¤ï¸?

There were some suggestions as well, in the form of a gif, of course.

The Rock approves.

And, many more gifs.
But, the best reply came from The Rock himself.
When you’re the GOAT there is no wrong brother. Perfect form ðŸ˜‰ðŸ‘?ðŸ?¾ðŸ‘ŠðŸ?¾
for those who don’t know.. “Smoldering Intensity” is one of my character’s strengths in #Jumanji. And like Roger, “Dr. Smolder Bravestone” has no weaknesses

Side note – I love how he took the time to explain the whole thing so everyone can get this wholesome Twitter interaction.
All of us right now.

As he himself explained, his character, Dr. Xander “Smolder” Bravestone, has ‘smouldering intensity’ as one his strengths and he does pull it off extremely well.
Well, two G.O.A.T’s interacting on Twitter in such a nice way was probably the best thing on the site today.
